Continuous Delivery, Microservices, API Strategy and DevOps are all powerful, but complex, tools and techniques, and they can be difficult to deploy effectively in organizations with a sprawling estate of legacy systems and significant technical, architectural and process debt. Successfully driving a cross-disciplinary transformation to tangible, business-meaningful outcomes is both an art and a science.
Investments must be planned holistically across silos, taking into account not only “the right tool” for your organization’s desired outcomes and current maturity, but also your organization’s leadership capacity to scale and steer delivery of the strategy. Most transformations fail because the human dimension is overlooked or assumptions are overly optimistic.
