Successful Digital Transformation Strategy Includes a Holistic View of DevOps

DevOps is a business game changer.  The cultural shift in combining operations, application development processes and people into one unified effort drives new revenue and customer service capabilities that take days rather than months to deploy.

Not only is DevOps one of the biggest trends impacting today’s business, it is increasingly seen as an integral part of helping organizations move faster and better compete in the marketplace. According to Everest Group’s 2016 annual report on application services, DevOps will play a key role in Digital Transformation strategies for many companies.
