Agile+DevOps: New Roads, New Wheels & the art of Continuous Learning – Part 1

Listen on the go!

With so much happening around the world of Agile and DevOps, it would be hard not to label them as the new wheels of IT. Much less the language these new worlds have introduced, they are actually helping tear away those high walls between the teams that were at odds with each other – and laying new tracks to speed up the flow of value.

In the age of customer, it is now imperative that IT leaders think about the following questions before embarking on this new journey toward Agile | DevOps:

  1. Is Business getting the right value at the right speed? Is there a common currency between IT and Business for measuring the effectiveness of the collaboration?
  2. How do I move from point A to point B in this new world and what organizational levers / capabilities should be built to bring dollars to deployments?

Speed of Quality: Faster deploys are the new normal

Increasingly Business is looking up to IT to become a differentiator to lead key business initiatives at the speed of competition, especially with the new tribe of CIO, CMO, and CDO who are riding the mega wave of digital transformation. Given this, the trio of speed, quality, and cost that ruled the project world with a constrained choice of ‘pick any two’ no longer work. While the markets are changing at the speed of consumers’ whims, the ability to monetize this with IT’s capability is very critical in today’s world. Amazon deploys every 11.6 seconds. Speed, now, is the new fuel!

So, how do you ensure that your business is getting the right value at the right speed?
