Hand in hand to reach the target faster: agile methods as catalysts for success
IT and software solutions need to be provided ever more quickly and in ever better quality. Time pressure is enormous, complexity is intensifying. The quality requirements for software, ever shorter release cycles – all in distributed team environments and with agile methods to hit the mark. To realise this with a consistent process – from a single source: a real Herculean task.
This can only be achieved if the culture, organisation and processes are turned on their head with new ways of thinking. The division between employees for software development and for operation needs to be done away with. There is a need for interdisciplinary teams who can respond quickly to new challenges. A core reality particularly in innovation projects. Central factors for success here: collaboration must occur along an agile process train – DevOps, continuous integration and continuous delivery.
