Modern delivery means getting your solutions ready and out into the world at a speed and scale that was previously unobtainable. But evolving technology capabilities are keeping pace with new demands.
1. On-demand services
New cloud and infrastructure technology provides the architectural runway needed to support a rapidly evolving product roadmap.
2. Trust by design
The public’s fear, uncertainty, and curiosity about the pandemic creates a fertile environment for cyber threat actors to adapt their vectors, tactics, and targeting strategies. Multifaceted risk mitigations (e.g., role-based access and multifactor authentication) can help combat these threats.
3. Automation at scale
Accelerating the delivery, deployment, and monitoring of new customer experiences requires adoption of a DevOps culture, practices and automation across the enterprise. An “automation first” foundation and mindset is fundamental to scaling in modern delivery, allowing teams to build, deploy, and operate efficiently and effectively.
If history is any guide, we know that periods of sudden disruption and rapid change tend to shift the table on pre-established plans. For all the players, these moments can either be a threat or an opportunity.
