ESG Brief: Businesses Take an 'Infrastructure-out' Approach to Digital Transformation

Abstract:

Developer velocity – the speed at which new applications can be developed and deployed – often determines success for digital transformation and digital business initiatives. Many businesses, however, don't have the infrastructure in place to optimize application development efforts and fully maximize the potential of these initiatives. Given the prominent role that IT transformation plays in digital transformation initiatives, businesses need to take a holistic "infrastructure-out" approach to their digital transformation journeys, with a focus on regular and constant collaboration between IT operations and application development teams.
