Application Development Lifecycle – Challenges & Complexities!
Software is eating the world and this is challenging the IT organization to react and innovate faster while maintaining quality and incorporating feedback faster. The challenge is while development practices have evolved significantly the operations practices haven't kept pace. This is giving rise to challenges like :
60% of IT managers are not satisfied with the speed at which IT responds to business needs.
48% of IT professionals spend 50% or more of their time on basic administrative tasks.
93% of IT professionals cannot answer “What changed?” when an outage incident occurs.
Infrastructure is rapidly being virtualized and manual management of this sprawling estate creates challenges for the ops team like massive computing power to handle, access to more software than ever, and archaic tools and practices that make it hard to get great software in front of users rapidly. Devops for applications is moving quickly as well with increase in commit frequency and Continuous Integration and deployment pipelines.
To succeed in this new world, your entire IT organization has to be transformed fundamentally to align towards the common goal of swiftly and consistently producing high-quality products and services. DevOps methodology is based on Lean and Agile methodologies and philosophy of Continuous Improvement and rapid product delivery.
