  • Business agility can be defined as your ability to rapidly change business vectors. A business vector is your business speed and direction.  The direction may lead into nIew markets and new products, or engaging with new participants.  Reducing time to IT solution delivery increases your team’s ability to adjust the business vector and match business opportunity.
    With adequate instrumentation, IT delivery agility can be quantified.  Consider the following agility metric recommendations:
    Rapidly create project workspaces and environments
    Reduce time to build, integrate, test
    Streamline processes to approve, promote
    Automate deployment and releases
    Eliminate Dwell time – time waiting for the next operation to commence or complete
    After application project inception and before coding commences, systems administrators must create project workspaces.   How long does your team wait before gaining access to source code management repositories, requirement management projects, and defect tracking projects?
    Moving code through build, integration, and test tools is often a time and labor-intensive process.  The entire team waits while applications assets are built, integrated, and tested.  When teams use iterative development processes, the wait time aggregates over several hundred or thousands cycles.  How long does your team wait during build, integration, and test phases?
    When one team member finishes a task and the work enters an approval phase, how long does the team wait?  After the work is approved to move through phase gate, how long before the project is promoted into the next phase?
  • To meet business demand and expectations, IT must become more responsive and effective.
    Often outdated processes, tools, and skills inhibit IT’s ability to be a strategic enabler and gain an IT business edge.  By adopting a new, Responsive IT delivery model, teams can foster effective business collaboration, responsive iterations, streamlined processes, and no wait states; enabling business to operate at the speed of now.  By changing the business-IT dynamic through an innovation focus, business stakeholders start to view IT as a strategic partner.
  • Many forward thinking organizations are building a more Responsive IT team. Here are a few using the WSO2 platform to transform their value proposition.
  • Extend your business reach and opportunity by becoming a connected business. A connected business seamlessly connects with suppliers, distributors, partners and customers, AND, connects further outward across the entire ecosystem with 2nd and 3rd degree customers and partners.
  • While every business is a nominally connected business, has your business maximized connected business value?
    A connected business litmus test measures:
    Are your business capabilities well integrated and readily accessible?
    How do you increase secure business engagement and collaboration with partners, suppliers, and customers?
    How do you extend your business reach into markets and across distribution channels?
    Does your business rapidly adapt to market events, opportunities, and trends?
  • A connected business seamlessly
    integrates people, process, and data across an extended value chain
    decreases interaction cost
    Increases business engagement and delivers exceptional productivity
    automatically adapts business activity in response to market events
