Gartner ThinkCast

Mar 5, 2024

Organizations are navigating headwinds from all directions, and in this environment, many are falling behind when it comes to keeping up with the latest technology. When the issue is ignored or mismanaged, and the price to modernize systems becomes insurmountable, enterprises risk being crushed under “technical debt.”

Gartner VP Analyst Roger Williams, who researches the future of infrastructure and operations, stresses the importance of continuous management over attempting to "spend your way out" of technical debt. He explains that organizations cannot eliminate their debt entirely through retroactive modernization projects. Instead they should work to understand and address the impacts of technical debt on stakeholders to effectively manage it as an ongoing concern rather than a one-time project.
