Analysis of First HIFIS Software Survey
Data from 467 respondents of the HIFIS Survey 2020 were analyzed to give an overview of research software developers at Helmholtz and their day-to-day work. While software development plays a crucial role in all six research domains, only about half of the respondents are satisfied with the support at their centers. Results of this survey will help us to better understand how HIFIS Software Services could improve this situation.
The results of the HIFIS Software survey 2020 are published in four posts examining the survey from four different perspectives:
- A Community Perspective
- A Consulting Perspective
- Programming, Continuous Integration and Version Control System
- A Technology Perspective
Upcoming Second HIFIS survey
HIFIS is preparing a Helmholtz-wide survey, which will focus on the usage and user requirements in the area of Cloud services in the context of research software development. This survey builds on the experiences that the HIFIS Software Cluster has already made with a survey at the end of 2019/beginning of 2020, and at the same time broadens the perspective.
