"Enterprises that depend heavily on IT to deliver services to customers are constantly driven by market pressures to better develop and release new software features to meet growing demands. Facilitating the collaboration between development and IT operations and bringing application to market faster with high quality are crucial to today’s business success.
This solution brief provides insights into the DevOps movement, why it matters and how you can cross the chasm to achieve better collaboration to deliver business value rapidly. You’ll learn how CA Technologies solutions for DevOps bring your portfolio of IT technology forward in a cadence of faster, more predictable releases, letting you confirm the results of each phase of the software life cycle toward positive business outcomes."
"Three key market dynamics are currently driving the need for transformation in almost every industry:
1) The need to leverage digital technologies to drive the core business
2) Next generation online consumers and socially networked buyers
3) The financial crisis
Companies are under tremendous pressure to bring digital technologies at the center of their business to remain
competitive, innovate, create new revenue streams, and drive greater customer intimacy. As a result the need to
leverage technology to significantly reduce the cost of going to market while driving growth has led to increasing
interest in software-based business models. "
"To support digital transformation imperatives, organizations are increasingly exploring DevOps style approaches for the continuous delivery of high quality software. Unfortunately, however, many enterprises remain burdened with accumulated technical debt and legacy wasteful practices – waste that can quickly inhibit the flow of value to customers and the business. Lean thinking provides organizations with a framework by which to quickly identify all forms of waste impacting the flow of value, which DevOps practitioners can apply in a software development context to quickly pinpoint and eliminate 8 elements of waste across people, process and technology dimensions.
This paper presents the 8 elements of waste framework, strategies needed to identify and eliminate waste, and the metrics needed to measure effectiveness.
The research shows DevOps delivers 18% faster time-to-market and 19% better app quality/performance.
The application economy is motivating leaders to make critical changes across IT and the business, one of the most significant being the adoption of DevOps. For enterprise IT organizations who need to accelerate delivery of apps and provide customers with higher-quality software, faster, DevOps–with its focus on collaboration across IT domains from development to delivery–is increasingly the answer.

How confident are you in the accuracy of your sales forecast? If the end of every quarter is a surprise and you're never sure if you'll hit your number, you probably need to change the way you forecast.
As the pace of business continues to quicken, companies are starting to recognize that to stay competitive the process of developing and releasing software needs to change. Release cadence has greatly accelerated. There is no occasion anymore for a 6- to 18-month find-and-fix turnaround in which the customer will find the delay acceptable.
Things need to move faster, and they need to be ready and perfect faster.
Transforming to continuous testing is a journey, just like agile and DevOps was and still is. Companies and their IT teams will encounter setbacks, which must be anticipated and accepted.
This is why planning is essential at every step in the continuous testing journey.

What is your Analytics Maturity?
An 'Army of Analysts' can be very powerful.

Business success is increasingly based on your ability to react to change. As new disruptive
players enter markets and technology upends what consumers expect, organizations increasingly need to change plans in much shorter cycles than ever before. Modern software architectures and processes can make organizations more effective at dealing with this change and
emerging as winners in their markets.
A new architectural framework called agile integration brings together three important architectural capabilities: containers, distributed integration, and application programming interfaces
(APIs). This framework addresses how these key capabilities promote agility and power new processes within your organization to create competitive advantage.
Industries like travel and hospitality have been transformed by new ways of doing business—new
services are now offered, and consumers interact with services differently. This trend of disruptive change is extending across other major industries—from

Agile is all about change. IT leaders adopt agile to accelerate the pace of change for their business-differentiable software. Adopting agile requires changes throughout the people, processes and technologies involved in building that software. Development teams must significantly change their structure, culture, tooling and daily activities for agile. And once agile is adopted, the applications under development change on a daily (or more frequent) basis.
Safety is a top priority for companies with a fleet of drivers and vehicles. It starts with hiring and screening new employees with safe driving records and qualifications. You may even have written safety policies. However, having visibility into your driver’s whereabouts and their behaviors behind the wheel is key in identifying and preventing risks before it costs your business.
Do you wish that you could sit in the passenger seat of every vehicle in your fleet to watch driver behavior?
With data-driven fleet safety management software from Silent Passenger you can. According to NHTSA, the cause of 94% of collisions is driver error. By monitoring unsafe driver behaviors such as speeding, hard braking, and fast acceleration is key to preserving fleet safety. A reliable fleet safety management software delivers key business intelligence that helps maintain fleet efficiency and productivity on the road.
Improve Safety and Reduce Operational Costs
Running a safer fleet can have a signif
As more pressure is placed on the finance team to provide meaningful insights more frequently, it is becoming increasingly necessary to speed up business processes, as well as have immediate access to the most up-to-date information. The traditional expense reporting process is a drain from both perspectives.
Using software to manage employee expenses can provide a more efficient means of managing the process, however most solutions are simply a digital version of the traditional paper process. This can limit the amount of time savings you can gain.
This paper will demonstrate the time savings you can accomplish by implementing a real time expense reporting solution versus one that relies on employee generated expense reports.
