We've all heard the jaw-dropping stats on just how much DevOps speeds up software delivery. For instance, the latest State of DevOps report shows that high-performing IT organizations deploy 200 times more frequently than low performers. When we read about how IT departments transform their release velocity with DevOps, the increases in teamwork are emphasized. But the truth is that without the spine of Application Release Automation (ARA), DevOps teams would not be able to flex their collective muscle ...

As dev teams and product owners begin the Agile development process, they meet to discuss how users will interact with their applications. They write these user stories down on sticky notes or index cards, arranging and re-arranging them into an order that they feel makes sense. These stories create the basis of their Agile requirements process. When done poorly, user stories lead to missed or misunderstood requirements which 96% of application development and delivery professionals blame for project delays and rework ...

IT can help users to be proactive in solving issues that used to require that they create a help desk ticket and wait until (or hope) IT had the time to address it. Many users likely have excellent ideas for applications that will automate business processes and improve their departments' output and productivity levels. Now IT can let them build those apps themselves – even if they don't have much coding experience – by adopting a delegated approach to application development. These "low-coders" will help IT speed up software development and delivery timetables, and position the IT organization as an invaluable business partner, not a roadblock ...

Mobile users only have one or two seconds of patience for an app to display the requested information before leaving the app. This means the complex trip – from app tap, to call to the back-end service, to call to the database and then back to the app – must happen in a moment. As a result, it's imperative that developers ensure that users experience a seamless "mobile moment" ...
