By focusing on frequent code integration, automated testing, and keeping the mainline code version in a state that is deployable to production at any time, CI/CD aims to eliminate the risks and friction of traditional waterfall software development. Add to that the practice of continuous deployment and you can move to a situation where the latest and greatest software version is not just always ready to be deployed—it’s deployed on a frequent basis.
Committed to advancing brain research, The Dana Foundation needed to transition to the cloud to drive efficiency and more effectively manage risk. With this shift, Dana moved from waterfall development to DevOps but still needed to maintain its strict security posture. In this case study Jim Rutt, CIO of The Dana Foundation, discusses his use of the CYBRIC continuous application security platform to move to DevOps, embedding security earlier in the development process and gaining full security visibility across the SDLC.

Hitting your go-to-market timelines depends on quality testing completion and approval.
Whether your organization still employs a waterfall model or has adopted the DevOps or agile
methodology, testing has the final say in acceptance for software launch. Metrics shared
between testing and other stakeholders can reduce bottlenecks and help your team reliably
hit delivery dates with exceptional quality.

Marketing automation is a technology solution that helps enable the seeding, creation, nurturing and acceleration of demand among prospects and customers (see the brief “Marketing Automation Platforms Defined”). Given that marketing automation platforms (MAPs) are an essential component of every b-to-b organization’s marketing infrastructure, organizations understand the need for these platforms, as well as their internal need for optimized processes and skills to leverage them.
However, while most b-to-b marketers understand the value of lead nurturing, lead scoring/prioritization, program and tactic level reporting, and the SiriusDecisions Demand Waterfall®, they often struggle to operationalize these processes with MAPs, which is why selecting the right MAP is imperative. In this SiriusView, we describe MAP providers’ differences to help organizations identify which MAPs best meet their needs.
Until recently, the waterfall methodology of development and deployment had taken a strategic hold in the majority of enterprises. Enterprises have moved into the world of Agile, where different concepts are leveraged and the development process is handled in a completely different fashion. Agile development ideologies are proving to be a better way to deal with rapidly changing objectives and speeding the time-to-market for business applications, services and other customer- (or internal-) facing offerings. The ideas behind Agile extend beyond basic application development, and can benefit numerous projects by improving the process to achieve deliverables and garner improved productivity.
In this paper, IBM proposes that organizations relying on the traditional waterfall process for systems and software delivery-that is, an engineering governance model-need to make changes to reduce risk and improve results
