The research shows DevOps delivers 18% faster time-to-market and 19% better app quality/performance.
The application economy is motivating leaders to make critical changes across IT and the business, one of the most significant being the adoption of DevOps. For enterprise IT organizations who need to accelerate delivery of apps and provide customers with higher-quality software, faster, DevOps–with its focus on collaboration across IT domains from development to delivery–is increasingly the answer.
Driven by the acute imperative of digital transformation, enterprises and other organizations are adopting multicloud strategies as springboards to increase business agility and competitive differentiation. At the same time, monolithic application development is being superseded by microservices, which entail the decomposition of previously complex applications into independent, modular processes that communicate with each other using language-agnostic APIs.

Agile integration — combining integration technologies, Agile delivery
techniques, and cloud-native platforms to improve speed and security
of software delivery — is a critical foundation for successful digital
transformation. The pace of digital innovation and disruption continues
to accelerate, driving the need for faster change to business models,
processes, and applications. Firms that can quickly reconfigure and
reconnect old and new applications have the advantage, and those with
slow integration processes are at serious risk of losing customers. An
Agile combination of integration and custom development is needed
to meet the customer’s expectations and avoid losing market share to
competitors that do put the customer first.1
For this study, we assessed
the differences between successful and less successful Agile integration
and app delivery strategies, why some firms can change their business
faster, and what makes one integration strategy better than another.

“Agile is all about change. IT leaders adopt agile to accelerate the pace of change for their business-differentiable software. Adopting agile requires changes throughout the people, processes and technologies involved in building that software. Development teams must significantly change their structure, culture, tooling and daily activities for agile. And once agile is adopted, the applications under development change on a daily (or more frequent) basis.
However, amid all this change, one thing tends to remain the same: the software testing process. One recent study reported that 70% of organizations have adopted agile, but only 30% automate testing. A separate study found that while agile adoption is now near 88%, only 26% of agile organizations have broadly adopted test automation. In other words, testing processes remain stuck in the past even as organizations invest considerable time and effort, transforming their development processes to meet today’s and tomorrow’s business de

Career management is at a crossroads. What employees and organisations want and need has shifted drastically in recent years, leading to big changes in how companies approach career development.
What’s causing these seismic shifts? And how are today’s organisations responding?
eLearning has become the prevailing approach to employee onboarding, compliance training, and professional development. The efficiencies that eLearning affords stem from automation, customization and self-service. These attributes allow end users (employees and others) to access just the right training at just the right time. They also provide Learning and Development administrators the peace of mind that training will be delivered as needed, in a consistent manner and that tracking the progress of individuals will also be made simpler by automation.

DevOps is fast becoming a core competency required to gain competitive advantage. At its most basic level, DevOps is a team approach to drive agile modern application development and operations to deliver high quality critical digital business services.
Cloud services are fundamentally changing the way applications are developed. The near ubiquitous, lowfriction access to cloud computing for developers, who can literally access powerful computing resources at the touch of a keystroke or swipe of a credit card, has fundamentally altered the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
Effective Competition Depends on Continuous Delivery of Quality Software In today’s application economy every company is a software company, no matter what industry it is in:
• Shipping companies depend on logistics software to efficiently route packages, arrange drivers and automate warehouses.
• Retail companies rely on software to manage inventory, engage with customers online and to give in-store associates the tools they need to answer customer questions on the spot.
• Marketing firms lean on applications to gather consumer data and parse it, automate communication with prospects and effectively manage advertising campaigns. The examples are endless.
The point is that in order to compete today, every business must be able to quickly build and tweak software to adjust to always evolving market demands. Ultimately, business success depends on faster development iterations while still maintaining the high quality of service expected by customers, stakeholders and end users.
Speed and agility matter.
Businesses are being disrupted every day by digital upstarts that find ways to address new market requirements before the more established companies can respond.
Despite talented IT teams and years of head start in both architectural and development work, it is still difficult to respond to these challenges using traditional development patterns centered around monolithic software applications. It’s simply impossible to get to market quickly when applications need to be maintained, modified and scaled as a single entity by a large, heavily inter-dependent team.
From this need has arisen the microservices paradigm: a set of patterns for software architecture, development, deployment and culture that focus on speed and agility. From small, independent services and teams to automated deployment to fault tolerance and resiliency, these patterns help accelerate time to market.
TechWell, IBM, uTest, and Keynote partnered on a powerful new survey that explores where today’s testers are spending their time, what obstacles they most often encounter, and where they think their attention should be focused.
Applications are the lifeblood of any business. If you spent time or budget to develop or acquire an application, then it’s important—and it should work. However, tectonic shifts in technology are making it increasingly difficult to achieve this simple objective. Today, the majority of applications are accessed via the web and cloud become the preferred application development platform. Against this backdrop of change, the sheer volume of applications is staggering. Given these rapid, drastic changes, organizations are left to grapple with how to deliver applications in a secure, timely, and reliable manner. Read this whitepaper to learn how your business can tackle this feat by implementing a new architectural vision for delivering application services.

With the cloud transforming application development and deployment—enabling organizations to improve flexibility, automate processes, and decrease time to market—some big questions remain. One of the most important issues an organization must address is how it can best employ the smarter tools and limitless scale that the cloud offers. One way that enterprises take advantage of the benefits of the cloud is by deploying their own private cloud, which is a computing
model that fosters agility while allowing organizations to maintain control of their infrastructure, while better securing their
applications and their data.
