In the ever-changing landscape of today’s professional world, staying updated with industry developments is not just beneficial—it’s essential. Not only does it keep you relevant, but it also aids in making informed decisions that could substantially affect your business. A lapse in this continuous learning can have significant consequences, as experienced by an iOS development team managed by Yakov Becker during his tenure as CTO.
A Critical Oversight
Under Yakov’s management, the iOS team was known for its efficiency and effective solutions. However, they faced an unexpected challenge when Apple released iOS 16. This wasn’t just any regular update; it introduced a foundational change in the infrastructure that impacted how apps interacted with the system. The team missed this crucial information, and the result was catastrophic.
Within a week, the app’s crash rate soared tenfold. Customer complaints flooded in, and the team scrambled to diagnose the issue. Upon realizing the infrastructural changes in iOS 16 were causing the problem, the team went into overdrive. Engineers had to halt ongoing projects and refocus their efforts on creating a patch. The fix took an entire month of labor-intensive work, which significantly delayed other projects and impacted the team’s KPIs.
The EnlightMe Solution
This stressful situation could have been entirely avoided if the team had subscribed to EnlightMe’s personalized podcasts. Tailored to fit the professional needs of employees, these AI-generated podcasts would have highlighted this vital update on mobile development long before it became a problem. They would have been able to prepare in advance, saving the company both time and resources.
In today’s fast-paced world, the lack of up-to-date information can cripple even the most efficient of teams. It’s not just about staying ahead; it’s about not falling behind. EnlightMe ensures that you never do.
