It’s an approach that builds on the concept of Agile development, focusing on open, collaborative methods and use of automation to increase the speed and flexibility with which new features and services are delivered. Traditional IT development and delivery processes are based around organizational silos where work is passed between teams with little ownership, poor visibility and low levels of satisfaction. In a DevOps process, teams are organized around business outcomes where silos are removed to create a multi-skilled team who constantly interact with each other. Development, QA, Operations and the business work together with high levels of communication, collaboration, ownership and trust. The ultimate goal is a process of continuous integration, continuous development, continuous deployment and continuous improvement.
The change and release challenge
The age of the digital economy, and the resulting wave of digital transformation, mean that customer expectations are constantly on the increase. Businesses that can’t continually adapt in the face of change won’t remain relevant for long. Your SAP systems are the critical enablers of your response to this new demand. That means you need to be able to update and improve them as quickly as you deliver new products, features and services to your customers. Most importantly, you need to do so safely, without risk to the business. Traditional Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) change and release methods – which are often slow, manual and opaque – no longer fit the bill.
