with a strong/compelling commitment to meeting the needs of the market


Explanation:
Cross-functional/interdisciplinary development teams track technological trends [in projects] with a strong/compelling commitment to/focus on meeting the needs of the market.

You could say development teams with a cross-functional/interdisciplinary composition, but the shorter expression seems adequate.

stringent = compelling (proof, reason, conclusion, argument). The Oxford-Duden German Dictionary ISBN 0-19-864171 0

I don't know what your context is, so you may have to polish this a bit journalistically to fit toe company/product/service/market

strictly market oriented


Explanation:
stringent in this context means "strictly". Therefore it is just strictly market oriented meaning that they want to make profits and generate shareholder value...

strictly market-oriented


Explanation:
Technological trends are implemented by interdisciplinary teams on a strictly market-oriented basis.

The \"stringent\" is really an english word, but the translation \"compelling\" does not fit here.

Wahrig gives a different meaning to stringent, than the translation in Oxfgord, namely: zwingend, bündig.
