What to Know Before Building Software Usage Analytics In House
Development teams are challenged to build increasingly competitive installed software, all while prioritizing a mounting backlog of new feature requests, balancing innovation with maintenance, managing growing technical debt, improving quality and usability, accelerating delivery, and reducing cost.
