Researchers have studied and created a wide range of techniques to support software engineers during development. This article reports on the results of a survey of 135 participants that was conducted in Germany to shed light on the usage of and demand for intelligent assistance in software engineering activities. The survey showed that there's a high demand and acceptance for unobtrusive, quickly executable, and reactive assistance in core software engineering phases to help solve the problems at hand. In addition, several challenges for the future in software engineering work environments are pointed out.
Index Terms:
