For IT to be a relevant partner to lines of business, DevOps is one of the key pillars to make that happen and is a close companion to Agile. While this is still a misunderstood area for some organizations, if done correctly it can lead to dramatically faster release cycles. Check out the White Paper in our Spotlight section. Also, note that Mindtree made two important acquisitions this month to help accelerate digital transformation for both CPG companies and SAP HANA environments.
