Rapidly changing business environments, technology trends, evolving customer expectations, multi-sourcing and complex supply chains are leading to higher expectations of IT to help drive improved business outcomes. However, most enterprises spend more than 40% of their IT investment on overhead work and less than 60% of their time on productive, value added activities. Business can enhance agility by improving their overall software delivery efficiency and by eliminating the unnecessary friction and wasted energy in the end-to-end software development and delivery lifecycle. However, speed must be balanced with cost and risk. IBM DevOps approach provides an enterprise capability for continuous software delivery that enables organizations to seize market opportunities and reduce time to customer feedback.
