The developer productivity can be improved by embracing autonomous teams, automated platforms and a culture of DevOps.
The topics on every CIO´s agenda are efficiency, cutting costs and reducing environmental impact. But also, which is just as important, to keep up with the demands of all consumers of digital services. This increases the need for continuous innovation to stay competitive and relevant in the market, in all sectors.
Digitization is progressing faster than ever and there are several reasons for that; streamline processes, enable data driven decision making, enhance customer experience and, of course, make use of new technologies in general to drive business.
The impact this has on traditional IT is substantial. The pursuit of reduced lead times and faster time-to-value through agile methodologies and ways of working, sets higher demands on efficient and highly automatable platforms. This also affects and challenges traditional operational processes e.g., ITIL.
A pain point for many executives is to find enough resources with the right technical skillset residing in the borderland between development and IT Ops, especially when adding the complexity of cloud and security in hybrid IT environments.
Although the cloud enables efficiency and automation in many ways, organizations swiftly discover that lots of different capabilities are required to get full value out of cloud investments. To name a few such capabilities; architecture, automation development, monitoring, governance, networking, identity and access management, security, test automation, integrations, deployment and configuration as code. And in a hybrid scenario this is valid for both traditional infrastructure as well as for Cloud.
