Software Development Predictions 2021

January 11, 2021

This webinar was originally scheduled for December 2, 2020.


As 2020 comes to a close, it is once again time to talk predictions for the upcoming year. This past year, the global pandemic put tremendous pressure on development shops to adapt to new ways of working. While many development teams adjusted, others struggled to adapt. As we look forward to 2021, disruption to software development as many shops know it is set to continue and intensify.

This webinar outlines Forrester’s five key software development predictions that will shape the market for 2021. This session goes beyond the published predictions report, featuring insights from Forrester’s application development and delivery (AD&D) team.

Key takeaways:

  • At least a third of test professionals will use machine learning to make test automation smarter.
  • By year-end, 75% of development shops will use low-code platforms.
  • Cross-functional teams that embrace collaborative work management and value stream management will flourish.
  • After pausing modernization for COVID-19, AD&D pros must reprioritize or flounder.
  • AD&D pros will finally reach a moment of clarity on service mesh technology.
