    Software is the key enabler for our business

    64%

    Software provides significant support for our business 32%

    Softwares role is primarily the automation of manual tasks 4%

    it plays a limited role in competitive advantage, and we focus on optimizing IT cost

    it makes business processes run more smoothly and enables key areas, but is not the foundation of the business

    business success depends on having high-quality applications that enable modern business models

    Base: 200 IT decision-makers at North American and European companies with visibility into or responsibility for their organizations application delivery pipeline

    Go West young man

    Business is under pressure and puts the pressure on me

    I need to develop faster, to run faster cycles

    I use the latest technologies.

    IT Ops is between me and my success

    Release Release,

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it

    Changes mean risks

    It may stop the business

    My job is to make sure it runs

    not to adapt/adopt new things

    I am not paid to learn new things

    Developers are putting my career in danger

    Rare releaseHigh effort - High risk

    Dev blame Ops and vice versa Late discovery of code performance issues Failure found eventually by customers Shadow IT is growing

    Late response to business Hinder to Innovation Big bang effects Poor quality

  • As the business models of retailers, financial services companies and firms in other industries become more dependent on digital technologies, they will adopt DevOps

    Its going to be beneficial to have operations folks working more closely with product development to respond to what customers want and will buy

    To promote DevOps, CIOs must change how they assess and reward software developers and operations staff

    Being Ready for Digital, Explained How to become a customer-focused, omnipresent digital force in the marketplace

    Think Consumer Experience

    The road is laid out ahead of you. Theres no denying that the roaring engine of commerce you hear

    the one powering the global economy irreversibly into the future runs on data flow. Its all over the

    headlines. Its on social media. Its in that TV ad that keeps interrupting your favorite sports broadcast.

    How many digital devices or data streams have you availed yourself to today? Chances are youre reading

    this white paper on a screen attached to a computer or tablet or smartphone, with an app or program that

    allowed you to download it at your convenience. Maybe youre in a plane over Singapore or Canada at the

    moment. Perhaps you used your smartphone to display the boarding pass you were issued using that air

    carrier app on your iPad or Surface two nights ago, in bed somewhere on the European continent.

    If you take anything away from the previous paragraph, it should be this: its all about you. Not as a CIO or

    a CTO or a CEO, but as an everyday consumer.

    The greatest disruption in business as usual in the age of digital is that someone else is now calling

    the shots. Its not the corner of ice, or board members or stock investors. Its not Wall Street or the

    government. Its the consumer. Sure, on our way up the career ladder weve all been fed the same clichs:

    The customer is always right. The customer always comes first.

    But this time, its dif erent.

    Centered in a vast digital ecosystem swirling with data, and equipped with pocket-sized portals of

    connectivity loaded with captivating apps ready to please anytime, anywhere at the slightest whim,

    todays consumer is now the definitive lord and master of commerce. The genie is out of the bottle and its

    name is digital business. As IT and enterprise leaders, it now falls upon you to understand exactly what the

    customer wants.

    Fortunately, you can. Through constant interaction, real-time feedback and careful analysis, you can get a

    clearer picture of the digital consumers behavior over time and can harness this intelligence to carry you

    along the road laid out ahead of you. And as long you keep granting wishes, theres no telling where it

    will end.

    The big question is: are you prepared for the journey? Is your organization ready for digital? And what,

    exactly, does that mean?
