What is it that a company wants from its IT capability? High availability? Fast performance? The latest technology?
Business-driven application release automation
The age of cascade development and long drawn out software projects is in decline. Businesses have a need for continuous delivery of new functions, and this requires a far more streamlined approach from IT. Systems of engagement and systems of record need to be abstracted; approaches need to change. Automating functional release in a secure and manageable manner enables IT to better facilitate rapidly changing business process needs. This requires robust tools to work alongside development, test and operational resources.
