DevOps and Cloud, two trends for the digital enterprise

IT technology plays an increasing role in business. Despite the resistance of some, IT will play an ever increasing role in enterprises. Rather than being slow to embrace trends, enterprises should think at how to take advantage of the digital world to transform their customer experience and facilitate the way they do business or create new products and services. Throughout this blog entry, I will refer to these approaches as the “solution” to be developed. It will be different for each enterprise, but the principles remain the same. As start-ups and enterprises go down the path of digitization, there are a couple elements that become obvious. Let’s review them.

So let’s highlight some of the questions you have to ask prior to starting the development or transformation work, as well as some main points to look at during the process.

Also, it is not just about technology, people and processes should also be looked at. Want to know more about what we discussed?
