Common Ground
I hear this complaint all the time, have even been the one complaining in the past.  Perhaps the answer is in refining the existing processes of development and operations to make security an integral function.  If you've been hired as a programmer for a killer app that uses some new killer lib, you'd never say "Gee, learning how to program against this new library is really slowing my time to market down!"  That's your job, to learn, to experiment, and to do it in a timely fashion.  So should secure programming be, and so should security in general.  It is as integral to software projects and release infrastructures as learning how to program is.  DevOps especially should be an innovator of finding common ground for security to be embraced on by both coders and security engineers.  You know what a really killer app is?  An unhackable app; uncrackable and well coded.  A secure app that protects the user's data while still being useful.  That kind of app doesn't just appear, it needs to be intentionally created, and lovingly created.  These rifts and complaints about security bringing down the dev process isn't going to produce that killer app.

Application Security Still Slows Developer Work
Wow! Is everyone ever missing the point here!  When cybersecurity testing is included in functional testing or QA then these types of surveys go away.  Cybersecurity is a core component of any code or it should be.  Failing to see this and recognize its importance just shows how ignorant the development community still is.  None of these survey respondents seemed to complain about functionality testing or QA cycles in their development plans did they?
