  1. Digital Transformation through Agile and DevOps We are passing through a very interesting time. Technology is making inroads into our daily life like never. It’s an era of huge software-based applications and plenty of business requirements. We can’t imagine a single day without being digital or wonder if any business requirement can be met without software. Be it a small enterprise large industry, almost everywhere we can see the effects of digital transformation. The fourth industrial revolution, also referred to as Industry 4.0, is standing on the four pillars of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, cloud computing and cognitive computing. These four components are driving automation and facilitating data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It has become imperative for every industry to adopt the changes brought in by digital transformation for their overall economic growth. And there ushers in the dawn of change. You eventually find out that digital is powering the world. Consumers, too, are embracing the digital for their ‘growth’ (read convenience) and most importantly "Transformations". The purpose of technology is to solve problems for business, not to become one instead. Now, talking about digitization, it always comes with a basic question: How are we going to deliver it? What is the best method? Although Waterfall model has been the key software development methodology since years, today, it has become a norm to use Agile for its flexibility, faster problem solving ability and the ability to boost collaboration. DevOps, on the other hand, is a mashup of ‘Development’ and ‘Operations.’ It is a set of software development practices that shortens systems development life cycle by combining software development (Dev) and information technology operations (Ops). Together DevOps and Agile is redefining the path of digital transformation and almost all global enterprises are leveraging its benefits to meet the highest standards in customer service. Role of Agile in digital transformation

  2. Agile methodology follows an iterative approach. Every step of the software development- from requirements to delivery is defined here. This makes Agile stand out in the concept of digital transformation. Since, nowadays, consumer requirement and preference keep changing frequently Agile fits in the role perfectly as it makes each phase of development and implementation faster and more reliable. ● Agile creates a framework based on which an organization can release a particular software solution in rapid iterations. Thus, it helps to deliver an enhanced digital customer experience. ● A drastic cultural shift is being driven by Agile. For any organization, to shift from a traditional framework to a digital one, a number of factors like transparency, collaboration, culture, accountability etc. are needed to be taken into consideration. It’s necessary that everyone receives training to understand the ‘change’ and its outcome. Through Agile, that is being done effectively. ● Agile helps organizations to create a secure digital platform. We seldom notice the underlying infrastructure that provides us the digital experience, while using any device like mobile or tablets. Over the years, the ERP systems have dictated the applications making them expensive yet less flexible. But in recent years, Cloud has started freeing up the application landscape and Agile has been dominant among all the traditional methods. Role of DevOps in digital transformation DevOps has been steadily gaining momentum since the “DevOps Days” of 2009. Going ahead, one can certainly visualize DevOps pushing the CIOs to create more related roles in software industry such as Chief Digital Officer. That being said, the transition is never going to be an easy one. Following is why DevOps is being considered as an important lever of transformation: ● DevOps promotes automation: When the IT industry was struggling to adopt Agile, DevOps came as a boon. Its approach towards zero-touch automation encouraged the industry to work with fully automated CI/CD (Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery) pipelines all the way from development to deployment. Upcoming opportunities With rapidly changing business dynamics and customer expectations coupled with stellar technology innovations, digital transformation is the only way forward. Agile and DevOps is going to play a key role in this process. Currently, around 90% of global organizations are successfully using DevOps in their business requirements. The ones who are left behind are also planning to implement DevOps as a solution to their daily workarounds. Although it’s true that DevOps and Agile will not address all software development issues, they will be functional in helping companies improve their engagement with customers and other key business stakeholders. These practices and the tools used therein will help organizations to keep up with the constantly changing and unpredictable business environment.
