New research from vFunction details the “staggering impact” of technical debt, reports Sean Michael Kerner.

  • 51% of organizations allocate more than 25% of IT budgets to technical debt remediation.
  • Monolithic architecture companies were 2 times more likely to experience issues with slow engineering velocity, limited scalability, and poor resiliency than microservices architectures.
