Les applications et logiciels sont des actifs précieux dans les entreprises de toutes tailles, avec des investissements qui ne cessent de croitre. Selon McKinsey, l’évolution de l’investissement dans le budget IT est passé récemment de 32% à 60%.

Cependant, mesurer la « valeur » reste une discipline difficile et la DSI doit démontrer de plus en plus la « valeur métier » au-delà des KPIs orientés technologie et réduction des coûts.

Dans ce webinar, découvrez les trois axes pour améliorer l'efficience et l'efficacité du développement de vos applications et devenir un partenaire du business :

  • Mieux investir les ressources pour fournir le plus de valeur possible au métier

  • Fournir des solutions de qualité et booster les résultats du business

  • Garantir la qualité des solutions développées pour booster les résultats du business

Customers are expecting rapid innovation and shorter time to market from enterprises. While many organizations are focused on developing digital solutions to meet customer experience requirements, the method to develop those leading edge solutions is still legacy. This leads to value leakage due to longer time to market, product-customer expectation mismatch and inefficiencies in the development process.

It is therefore imperative that enterprises embrace Agile and DevOps as part of their Digital Transformation journey to:

  • Drive greater frequency of deliver

  • Create faster business value

  • Drive Business / IT alignment
