    • How deployment automation needs to think big 1 I first met Chunka Mui in Boston back in 1999 at a TTi Vanguard conference surrounded by some of the world’s most respected thought leaders in IT. Up jumps Chunka onto the stage and talks about Unleashing the Killer App. But then he delivers the ultimate business plan in just a few words. Think Big, Start Small, Test Quickly, Scale Fast. It seems to fit every business, every market – and works for a carve-out new business idea right down to a small IT innovation release program. Jump forward more than a decade and I’ve noticed a small but important change in Chunka’s business mantra. Just one word changes – he turns test quickly into fail quickly – and a step-change in organisational strategy emerges. 1. Think Big 2. Start Small 3. Fail Quickly 4. Scale Fast Innovation is about experimenting. But all too often the experiments take place in isolation from the rest of the environment and the organisation’s micro and macro eco-system. CIO, CMO, or CEO dollars piled into R&D is one important part of the strategy.

Application release automation technology allows companies to innovate in real-time and fail as often as they want. Software tools have now made it possible to replicate or mirror entire system environments, on premise or in the cloud, so that new releases of IT updates, innovations and functionality deployments can be

Now that’s a mouth-watering strategy for business growth
