Somebody, somewhere, is plotting to steal your business. They have new tools and process available to them, that let them come up with a new idea, and push it out to their customers before one of your development cycles has finished. For many organisations, the 'Agile Revolution' may have helped de-risk software delivery, and helped ensure that the right thing gets built, but it has done far less than it could have to get software in front of end users faster. So how do you make the next step?
What if you could push a button, whenever you wanted, to put the latest version of your software into production? Forget yearly or monthly releases - why not when it makes sense to the business? Leading edge organisations now have the ability to release daily, or even hourly!
This briefing will introduce the reinforcing movements of DevOps and Continuous Delivery and demonstrate how your organisation can take a leaf out of the Lean Startup world to gain a competitive edge.
