The digital era is dramatically transforming the pace of doing business. To stay relevant in this ever-shifting business environment, IT leaders need to run core operations in an extremely nimble fashion while focusing continuously on reducing cost and investing more in ‘grow-the-business’ initiatives. However, IT teams are fragmented across the IT Lifecycle of Plan-to-Operate and are not geared to respond swiftly to these dynamic business needs. Moreover, the current way of managing IT continues to consume majority of their time, energy and money, rendering IT to play a support role rather than leading change.
For years, many IT organizations built specialization in key areas – development, testing, support and infrastructure management – with each area developing their own methodologies, ways of working, tools and automation. While this built expertise in these areas, the business lost out on speed, IT costs spiraled out of control, and there was little left for innovation.
To stay ahead of business transformation, it has become imperative for IT leaders to shift their focus toward modernizing and optimizing the traditional ways of managing IT. This will help lower costs, improve efficiency and enable IT teams to create the growth and innovation initiatives to drive business success.

Ways of working
In traditional IT environments, the goals of different teams are often misaligned. For example, development teams focus on speed as they collaborate with the business; infrastructure and operations teams focus on the quality and reliability of the production environment; and the testing team focuses on finding bugs and defects. To accomplish their individual team tasks, they use their own methodologies, ways of working, tools and automation – leading to inefficient processes and lack of transparency. This process usurps their time, energy and budget. What you need is a single-thread delivery approach that unifies the goals of development, testing and support engineers to focus on faster time-to-market, and enhanced quality and reliability. This can be achieved through:
1. Implementing common unified goals across teams
2. Integrating product teams supporting the entire lifecycle
3. Reorienting skills towards full stack engineers
