Four Practical Sources of Agile and DevOps Success for Asia/Pacific Financial Services Institutions
This IDC Perspective focuses on IDC Financial Insights recommendations and the four practical implications and successes of Agile and DevOps (A.DO) that you can apply to your digital journey. It is easy to think of A.DO as independent methodologies; however, they are not mutually exclusive. When you link them together, you can realize the full advantages of your continuous delivery pipeline. We have shortened these combined methodologies to A.DO to make it easy to reference and more concise.
Michael Araneta, associate VP, IDC Financial Insights Asia/Pacific, says, "Most Asia/Pacific financial services institutions (FSIs) have had varying levels of success with A.DO. FSI leaders are still struggling with A.DO adoption. There are incompatibilities among security, automation, and other A.DO tools. It is imperative to amplify and speed up A.DO practices. A.DO is a journey of continuous improvement and learnings essential for long-term success.”
Clay Miller, senior executive advisor, IDC Financial Insights Asia/Pacific, says “The most successful A.DO organizations are those that are driven by autonomous teams. This requires new lines of reporting and different people leading the A.DO teams. Ensure processes, methods, and practices are as efficient and effective as possible. Seek lasting cycles of improvement for all process and the product iterations. This must be done release by release, sprint by sprint, during which continuous improvement maximizes customer value.”
