"The fast pace of innovation demanded by today’s digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance
of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams.
As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats.
The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. It’s all about speed."

DevOps helps drive continuous collaboration with the end-customer, gaining further visibility into online and mobile application usage and its effect on the brick-and-mortar experience. The data your company can derive from this collaboration should be used to continuously validate assumptions made earlier in the development process.
Today’s empowered consumers have high expectations for the companies they do business with. They expect real-time communication, instant information, and the ability to connect in multiple ways. And they want it to be simple. A DevOps approach can help to accomplish this.
Extending DevOps to mainframe applications and teams is essential towards the agility and velocity that enterprises require to remain innovative in today’s turbulent digital business environment.
• For enterprises with mainframes, trying to achieve the benefits of Digital Transformation without dealing with existing mainframe assets is a fool’s errand.
• Breaking down silos and moving to DevOps is central to what it means to undergo Digital Transformation.
• Including the mainframe in modern software development approaches can improve quality overall, reduce test cycles and deployment timeframes, and ensure mainframe-based applications support the end-to-end performance requirements that today’s customers demand.
As IT departments’ lists of backlogged application development projects keep growing, so does the speed of new development requests from line-of-business personnel. For many IT departments, the speed of business — the speed of requests for additional developments — can’t be met under current practices. This inability to keep pace with critical development requests, supporting timely strategy modifications, seriously impacts an enterprise’s profitability. The solution FICO advocates — one that accounts for budget constraints, legacy operational realities and quality assurance — is to empower line-of-business personnel as Citizen Developers, giving them the right set of technology assets to quickly, safely and cost effectively participate in application development.

The days of monolithic application development are over.
And while “digital transformation” may sound like a fancy
buzzword that ranks alongside blockchain, agile, and cloud, it’s
not all hype. With transformation comes unprecedented levels
of speed, consistency, and efficiency that are fundamentally
changing the way developers do their jobs.
Yes, that includes you.
Much of the burden and pressure to deliver on the promises made
by the business falls on the shoulders of IT developers. In a world
where users demand new applications, features, and updates
across all their devices in real time, container technology is your
secret weapon. Containers let you work smarter by creating
consistent development environments to rapidly develop and
deliver cloud-native applications that can run anywhere. With
containers, you can also deliver microservices that eliminate

When any organization starts planning for cloud-native applications, it is important to consider
the entire time span: from selecting a development platform until an application is truly production-grade and ready for delivery in the cloud. It can be a long journey, with many decisions
along the way that can help or hinder progress.
For example, at the beginning of a move to cloud-native development, it is easy for inefficiencies
to occur if developers begin selecting tools and frameworks before they know where the application will be deployed. While enterprise developers want choice of runtimes, frameworks, and
languages, organizations need standards that address the entire application life cycle in order
to reduce operational costs, decrease risks, and meet compliance requirements. Organizations
also want to avoid lock-in, whether it is to a single provider of cloud infrastructure or the latest

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.
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.
