Modern Software Delivery

Modern Software Delivery

Quickly realize value in your technology investment while remaining competitive in a disruptive marketplace with a Modern Software Delivery strategy.

Fundamentals of Modern Software Delivery

Our Modern Software Delivery strategy focuses on transformative opportunities in four fundamental areas that affect a business.

Modern Software Delivery Fundamentals - People

People

Technology innovation happens in organizations that develop strategic partnerships between their business and IT leadership and functions. This collaborative growth-oriented mindset must be valued and applied at all levels of the organization to create high performing teams. High performing teams are cross-functional, collaborative teams that use technology platforms to accelerate their achievements.

Modern Software Delivery Fundamentals - Principles

Principles

All organizations can benefit from applying Lean Agile principles to their technology delivery. These principles include Business Agility, Product Development, Lean Agile Methodologies, Scrum/Kanban approaches, Visible Work, Integrated Feedback, and Work-In-Process (WIP) Management. By applying Lean Agile principles to software development, business needs can be aligned with technological capabilities

Modern Software Delivery Fundamentals - Practices

Practices

To move an idea to production as quickly as possible, organizations must apply DevOps engineering practices, tools and techniques across the entire delivery process. DevOps enables your organization to see improved deployment frequency while maintaining quality and reliability. As DevOps capabilities mature, an organization will become better able to identify opportunities for effective workflow automation.

Modern Software Delivery Fundamentals - Platforms

Platforms

One of the fastest ways to increase productivity is to adopt cloud technology platforms that enable scalability and innovation, while remaining both secure and accessible. Cloud platforms become the accelerators that empower high performing teams to deliver value more rapidly.

The Value of Applying a Modern Software Delivery Strategy

When high performing teams apply Agile principles and DevOps practices while using cloud platforms to accelerate production, it creates a synergy that enables us to rapidly deliver value without sacrificing reliability or quality. By applying a Modern Software Delivery strategy, we can create a Continuous Delivery Pipeline – a workflow process that enables us to build any software on a safe and reliable basis while increasing output and velocity.

Recent industry studies have reported that applying a Modern Software Delivery strategy brings the following benefits to organizations:

  • Adding Modern Software Delivery Practices to an agile environment improves business growth by 63%.
  • Organizations see their market capitalization grow 50% higher than their industry peers.
  • Mature teams deliver code to production 46 times more often than traditional IT organizations.
  • Teams leverage a cloud platform for 83% of their applications.
  • Technology delivery speed is improved by 37%, employee retention by 77% and customer engagement by a factor of 4.
