Transforming App Delivery Into an Engine for Business Value

Staying ahead of the competition with software innovation

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower” - Steve Jobs

Under the current economic environment, value add is shaped by the need to drive business innovation while enforcing resource (cost) optimization across business and IT operations. Digital demands on the business continue to grow resulting in non-stop business-driven requests that range from small changes to full-scale modernization of critical custom-built applications.

Therefore, to compete successfully there is an urgency for European organizations to empower their DevOps teams for speed, velocity and productivity. Why? Because digital leaders release on average 5 times faster than their peers and ambitions to drive further reductions in software release times are not letting up. As DevOps is founded on the concept of learning this raises the question of whether laggards can ever catchup to the front runners.

IDC believes that nearly every organization can benefit from building a digital innovation value engine. This value engine comprises the practices, technology, and culture required to build and sustain innovative software-led digital deliverables that achieve strategic business outcomes.

Without doubt DevOps sits at the core of any digital innovation value engine and scaling DevOps helps to address digital innovation ambitions at the same time as driving better IT and business cohesion.
Why Attend?
Organizations need to ensure that software underpins business growth, competitiveness, and operational efficiency. This means enabling a culture that is much more unified between IT and business teams and allows for an iterative and agile foundation for continuous innovation.

The growing importance of development, CI/CD, automated workflows, and faster, more frequent and secure deployments are having an impact on software quality and business outcomes. Ultimately low productivity due to manual workflows leads to a growing backlog of business requests. To respond organizations must drive valuable convergence and collaboration across Dev, Sec and Ops teams. Although, DevOps adoption has progressed only 9% of European organizations have achieved a unified DevOps approach.

There are multiple areas that lend themselves to optimization to help drive DevOps productivity and digital innovation upwards, including: operationalizing DevOps at scale, modernizing the app estate, skills investment programs, technology re-platforming, adequate tooling and better dissemination of best practices.

This year, we will talk about how organizations can design their businesses to deliver business outcomes and digital value creation, how teams are using automation; how teams are organized; and how work is assigned to best understand value delivered.

Join us digitally to hear more! Cannot make it on the 23rd of May? Register anyway, we will share the recordings and event materials with registrants afterwards.

The Impact of COVID-19 on European DevOps Ambitions

This is not just a time to focus on the technical and development skills (which are of course critical) but also the skills required to make distributed teams work. Developing human skills must be a priority — think interpersonal skills, empathy, motivation, and how organizations and teams can make this work in a distributed, homeworking scenario.
