The Modern Application Delivery Playbook
When major companies start getting into the nitty gritty of updating their software delivery processes, governance always pokes its head into the mix. The ability to control and secure a software release has traditionally been a hands-on experience due to its many complexities. But at what costs?
As more software delivery processes become automated, the traditional manual processes used for corporate governance are creating bottlenecks that slow down software releases and promote inefficiency. Forrester recently released a new report on this subject: “Use DevOps And Supply Chain Principles To Automate Application Delivery Governance Processes: The Modern Application Delivery Playbook.” The report aims to give companies insight into state of governance processes in the software release process today, and understand how they need to evolve in order to meet the needs of tomorrow.
Manual Governance Is Slow, Costly, and Error-Prone
Agile Practices Are Important And Necessary, But Not Sufficient
In addition to involving actual users, companies need to extend Agile practices and automation into the Ops side of the pipeline. If enterprises do not start extending agile practices to quality assurance and the feedback loop, they will continue to create larger bottlenecks as the release process matures. True maturity encompasses the entire release pipeline with agile practices, not just the first half.
To compete successfully in today’s market, organizations need both speed and quality. Agile methodologies have helped teams increase the speed at which software is released, but the governance processes often unchanged. Automation and the implementation of DevOps will both accelerate releases and ensure quality and security throughout the entire software release process.
