Automating for Digital Transformation: Tools-Driven DevOps and Continuous Software Delivery in the Enterprise - Research and Markets


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Automating for Digital Transformation: Tools-Driven DevOps and Continuous Software Delivery in the Enterprise " report to their offering.

This report is based on survey data gathered during the month of October 2015 from technology professionals on the front lines of application delivery. The ability of IT organizations to accelerate software delivery has become a primary factor supporting the explosion of innovation that has occurred over the past five years. Consumers have become empowered by mobility and social media while businesses have become empowered by insights drawn from big data and advanced analytics. These trends, contributing to the larger concept of the Digital Economy, are igniting a new level of interest in the benefits of delivering software faster, more efficiently, and at higher levels of quality than ever before.

At the same time, as the pace of business continues to accelerate, business leaders are increasingly recognizing the value of Digital Transformation initiatives. And although we typically think about DevOps and Continuous Delivery in the context of IT initiatives, it is clear that much of their momentum is being driven by executives seeking rapid transformation of the products and processes sustaining business growth. In essence, Digital Transformation requires transformation on the part of both IT and business, and both must be in sync for true transformation to occur.

Past research on the topics of DevOps and Continuous Delivery found that the top four drivers for Continuous Delivery were business- and customer-related. The 2015 survey confirms these findings. Businesses need new products and services to remain competitive, and customers expect to be able to interact with a company in efficient, seamless ways. In other words, from the business perspective, Continuous Delivery is no longer simply nice to have - it is a must-have for Digital Transformation as companies bank their futures on accelerating the speed at which new products are delivered to the marketplace.

The catch-22, however, is the fact that velocity is no longer enough. As software becomes increasingly revenue-critical, quality is as important as speed. So from the Continuous Delivery perspective, the true challenge is acceleration with quality - delivering software faster while ensuring the quality of the end product.
