The concepts behind continuous deliver principles are not new, and neither is the idea of applying them to IT project management in Phoenix. An article in DevOps.com shows how continuous delivery, change management and project management intersect in todays on-demand, service-oriented world. These three areas have traditionally seen a low adoption rate, primarily because their intersection is often misunderstood and difficult for organizations to effectively implement.
In short, Continuous Delivery (CD) is the ability to get changes of all types—including new features, configuration changes, bug fixes and experiments—into production, or into the hands of users, safely and quickly in a sustainable way. The reality is that continuous software delivery and project management share similarities but they also have specific differences.
When applied to project management, continuous delivery principles break down the siloes inherent to project management and project portfolio management as they apply to the overall goals of the organization over time. By introducing product development best practices, IT project management in Phoenix can more effectively pursue a continuous delivery model that enables organizations to meet increasing software product demands. This can be simultaneously true for customers and consumers as well as internal workforces that are in need of specific enterprise software applications that further business goals.
The goal is to fast track project team setup, implementation of software change management workflows, institutionalizing just in time governance, and implementation of value-based software delivery. This enables organizations to implement a “collaborative lifecycle management” platform. At MYTEK, our consultants understand that this is easier said than done, but through the use of software application development services combined with IT assessments and strategic IT planning, organizations can be far more competitive in the digital age.
