With software projects becoming increasingly complex, DevOps teams across the world are looking for ways to simplify the software delivery process, reduce costs, and improve software quality.
Choosing the right methodologies, tools, and frameworks, has always been a challenge, and that’s where specialized consulting can help. By putting together a roadmap, it enables delivery teams to make the right investment decisions, and reduce the complexity of software delivery, while driving the best outcomes.
Today’s organizations are at various levels of DevOps maturity:
Irrespective of where teams are in the DevOps maturity, they are constantly trying to do a lot of things simultaneously:
However, due to the different perspectives and objectives of every resource, teams fail to achieve any of this. Therefore, they adopt methodologies that can help drive efficiency.
DevOps discovery allows development teams to begin their software development journey on the right note.
Quantitative discovery, along with qualitative discovery, help companies assess their current state of the delivery process, quantify the objectives, and plan a roadmap. This helps teams to break down the complexity of the software delivery process, enables them to plan their investments, and achieve maximum ROI.
Quantitative discovery brings all development stakeholders together so that the key insights into differing perspectives and objectives can be achieved. It helps set the stage for mutual empathy while enabling everyone involved to align themselves with the shared objectives.
The discovery process is critical as it provides everyone involved a snapshot of where they are today, what challenges they are facing, the capabilities against which they will be benchmarked, and the road ahead.
Listed below are the critical steps in quantitative discovery:
There are several aspects on which quantitative discovery can be benchmarked
Given how important quantitative discovery is, it becomes critical for organizations to drive efforts in making it successful.
Here are some ways in which you can ensure the success of your discovery efforts:
In the software development world, everyone knows that development involves coding and testing, but not many know what tools, frameworks, methodologies, and processes to use. With DevOps evolving with time, that’s where the job of a specialized consulting partner begins. Not only can a partner help teams in assessing their current processes, but a partner can also allow them reach the pinnacle of DevOps maturity. By carrying out comprehensive as-discovery, iterations, to-be assessments, gap analysis, and furnishing a roadmap, software delivery teams can make the most of quantitative discovery, and ensure delivery risks and costs are kept to a minimum.
