Continuous delivery, DevOps and cloud: vital pieces of modernization

Source – searchitoperations.techtarget.com The choice between containerization, DevOps and cloud migration can freeze an IT department’s attempts at modernization, because they weigh the technological options before they determine the goal.

Enterprises complain that goals are too technical, business practices are negatively affected and costs overrun expectations. Application modernization projects often become a focus of technical tunnel vision, disconnected from what should be target benefits and from a way to unify

4 steps to continuous development and positive organisational change

Source – anatas.com.au Continuous delivery is a software development approach that involves implementing small but frequent improvements to a product based on user feedback. It’s a methodology widely favoured over less responsive, more traditional methods. Rather than trying to build a final complex piece of software without knowing whether anyone will use it, continuous delivery allows customers to engage with versions that are still a work in progress. Any feedback can then be looped back and corrections made sooner, more frequently and with less
