Bugs cost industry 316 billion USD a year
A recent study performed by Cambridge Judge Business School and commissioned by Undo has found that debugging costs the industry $312 billion every year.
They found that on average, 50% of a software developer’s time is spent on finding and fixing bugs. Extrapolating this out to the total cost of employing software developers and including costs associated with the delay in delivery of products, this inefficiency costs the industry $312 billion every year.
It was also found that respondents who used Undo’s reversible debugging technology spend an average of 26% less time debugging.
