Pairing is a great way to boost productivity and help crack a particularly complex problem.
It’s rare to encounter an organisation where software isn’t an important aspect of their day-to-day operation. Whether it’s a small business with a simple website, an international retailer with an e-commerce store and a Warehouse Management System, or a charity organisation collecting, storing and reporting environmental data, at some point, each of those organisations will need to engage on some level with a piece of software in order to ensure its smooth operation.
It’s not a particularly well kept secret that there can be challenges organisations face when offshoring software development, both for greenfield builds and for products running in support and maintenance.
For many organisations with their own software application, whether it be a website, an internal tool or something else entirely, managing said application can be a source of frustration, particularly in the absence of an internal software team.
Most software systems will suffer from a deterioration of quality over time. Codebases become bloated, software is changed to solve problems nobody knew existed when it was initially written, and the cost of change keeps increasing.
