A fundamental people-process-technology transformation enables businesses to remain competitive in today’s innovation economy. Initiatives such as advanced security, fraud detection services, connected consumer Internet of Things (IoT) devices, augmented or virtual reality experience, machine and deep learning, and cognitively enabled applications drive superior business outcomes such as predictive marketing and maintenance. Superior business outcomes require businesses to consider IT a core competency. For IT, an agile, elastic, and scalable IT infrastructure forms the crucial underpinning for a superior service delivery model.

Focus on Value.
“The benefits of agile are multidimensional. But the most important change is that it focuses the entire organization on meaningful delivery to the customer. Instead of relying on indirect metrics describing degrees of our software’s quality and progress ... we ask, ‘What percent of critical functionality is included in this release?’ This emphasis on customerperceived value impacts our entire project life cycle pretty significantly.” Vice President of Infrastructure Management BMC Software.
„Der Nutzen von Agile ist mehrdimensional. Die wichtigste Veränderung besteht jedoch darin, dass sich das gesamte Unternehmen darauf konzentriert, dem Kunden ein wertvolles Produkt bereitzustellen. Statt indirekte Messdaten zu nutzen, die die Qualität und die Fortschritte unserer Software graduell quantifizieren ..., fragen wir: ‚Welchen Prozentsatz der wichtigen Funktionalität enthält dieses Release?‘ Diese Konzentration auf den Wert, den die Kunden wahrnehmen können, hat umfassende Auswirkungen auf unseren gesamten Projektlebenszyklus.“ Vice President of Infrastructure Management BMC Software

Gartner reports that 75% to 80% of organizations are using some form of agile project management process.
Although agile project management has been around for many years, the way we adapt it has changed significantly, especially as project portfolio management (PPM) practices have evolved.
In today’s businesses, technology plays a crucial role in our success, but technology can also make things more uncertain. This uncertainty has given us the motive to be more flexible and requires a “think on your feet” mentality. For this reason, we've seen a big spike in Agile PPM over the last few years. So how do we continue to deliver stability and efficiency, the result of traditional style PPM, while also giving in to necessary risks that lead to innovation and competitive edge?
It’s simple: accept the value in each method, avoid the inevitable pains that may develop with segregation, and opt for a unified agile and traditional PPM model.

While just about everyone is writing about how IT and the businesses it serves need to be transformed, the actual industry answers to both digital and IT transformation remain unclear at best. Are transformational initiatives all about analytics and big data? Or are they about the move to cloud in all its varieties? Support for mobile? More agile ways of working and developing software? Or are they actually all about crafting teams to promote more proactive dialog between the business and IT?
The truth is, of course, digital and IT transformation depend on all of the above and more. They also depend on a resilient infrastructure that’s easily adapted to changing business priorities without requiring long hours spent on maintenance, updates, and addressing problems of service availability. But making all this work clearly and cohesively is far beyond the purview of almost any solution today—whether from a software management perspective or from a hardware infrastructure perspective.
Have you started moving to the cloud? Nearly 70 percent of organizations have at least one application living in the cloud already, and cloud adoption is growing fast. That's because organizations recognize the cloud is a great way to make IT more agile and helpful to the business.
Download Cloud-Scale Automation with Puppet, and learn how you can ease the transition to cloud, gaining the agility your organization needs without adding hours of management time or unnecessary risk. You really can use cloud infrastructure as easily as you use on-prem, and keep it as secure as on-prem, too.
You’ll learn how to:
• Automate your cloud resources and manage infrastructure at scale.
• Get started with Puppet on both Linux and Windows machines.
• Make Puppet the foundation of your DevOps efforts, regardless of where you choose to deploy.
Today’s adaptive enterprises have to leverage data to remain flexible and responsive, but they need the right data.
But it isn’t easy: Many companies struggle to improve technical execution while maintaining the visibility executives need. That’s why we created CA PPM + CA Agile Central, a seamless integration of our agile-management and business-portfolio management solutions. Together, they provide unparalleled visibility into both funding and work across every level of your organization.
Several years into the app economy, business has changed. Accelerating product cycles and competitive threats now demand continuous planning. Change is constant and managing it is more important than ever. As a result, companies that for years have taken a traditional approach to managing initiatives are moving rapidly to implement agile business practices. And they’re seeing results, in the form of improved quality, faster delivery of value, reduced development costs and increased customer satisfaction.
But this transition also creates new challenges and responsibilities for the project management office (PMO). In fact, the success of the transformation often hinges on the PMO’s ability to expand the underlying concepts of the agile development methodology into a companywide ethos¬—a concept known as business agility.
Business moves fast. Customers demand now. You need to get ahead of it all. Markets are changing overnight, and the startups are disrupting the giants. The biggest risk you can take is to stand still. Do what you’ve always done and, you guessed it, you’ll be lucky to get the same results you’ve seen in the past. Odds are, those smaller, faster companies are going to sail right by.
CA Agile Central supports Agile development methodologies, providing individual developers with a clear picture of their own priorities. DigitalGlobe’s management has a clear picture too; individual narratives are rolled up to provide real-time, business-level visibility into progress across the company’s entire portfolio.
As organizations shift toward enterprise agile, tools for planning and management become more important. Application leaders looking to facilitate coordination and collaboration while enabling insight into the flow of work in their organizations should consider enterprise agile planning tools.
Agile development teams and IT operations teams often become so consumed with their own daily challenges that collaboration between them is severely lacking or non-existent. The problem with this is that manageability requirements become an afterthought to the development process, and agile teams may roll out applications that IT ops can't effectively monitor and run.
While enabling cross-team collaboration is mutually beneficial— and ultimately improves the business' bottom line—, implementing it requires some effort at the organizational level to instill changes, and the right tools will help. Read this white paper to learn guidelines for adapting your application development and management model to enable Dev/Ops information sharing and collaboration, and learn how the cloud can be leveraged for this purpose.
