Agile & DevOps
As smart infrastructure (Digital) becomes more capable of fast and constant adaptation, your approach also needs to adapt
Fast and Constant Adaptation
Agile and DevOps are two approaches that speed up the ideation to reality timeline. These two approaches bring cross-functional teams together to hasten the time to value. Agile processes include the targeted end users to ensure what is designed is fit for purpose and generates the desired outcome.
Multiple releases a week can be achieved with DevOps – in some cases, multiple releases a day
DevOps provides 96 times faster mean time to release than traditional approaches
Failed Agile Projects
29% of Waterfall projects are canceled before completion, or are completed but not used
We typically measure projects by whether they are on time, under budget, with the features we request. But this doesn’t measure value. Value is realized with metrics that observe the change in market share, customer satisfaction, and revenue attributed to the release.
