Organizations need to make sure they align processes to culture

Whenever an organization decides to launch a digital business transformation initiative there’s naturally a lot of focus on determining what platform to adopt to build these applications. What most organizations don’t spend nearly enough time on is determining which application development processes are the best fit for the applications they need to develop. As any team that has embarked on a digital business transformation journey already knows, decisions regarding what processes have as much impact on the success or failure of a project as the platform employed to build those applications.

Once an organization launches a digital business transformation initiative, they almost invariably discover that the size and complexity of these applications increases rapidly. Rising to that challenge requires organizations to not only determine what application development methodology to embrace, but also how to incorporate test, maintenance, and support functions within the application lifecycle management process. Each of those decisions can have a profound impact on how consistently fast any organization can build and deploy applications.
