Focus on Business Relevance

DevOps and Agile are all about delivering business value faster and more reliably. The key driver of your software pipelines always should be business value. How to align business needs with development decisions is challenging and it is sometimes hard to decide where to begin. Do I want to improve my speed to market or do I want to create a devOps organisation? Are my development costs too high or are my processes too slow?

To understanding the answers to these kinds of questions and then make informed decisions on where to focus attention and resources, the following one or more of these tracks may suit your requirements.

1. COST AND QUALITY – Identify and Prioritise Technical Debt: Analysis of code health in order to identify risks and prioritise it to get the most return on refactoring

2. PROCESSES AND STRATEGY – Create or Assess Development Strategy: Value Stream Mapping can optimise workflows and determine where to look for improvements.

3. ORGANISATION AND DEVOPS – Transition to Secure DevOps: DASA Competence Framework and to determine where to deploy resources.

4. SPEED AND RELEASE – Improve Release Orchestration: Assess and optimise the CI/CD infrastructure (methods and tools) to deliver features to customers as fast as they require. BSIMM8
