DevOps and agile development are two ways to prepare for digital transformation. Both methods speed up times to market, change company culture, and enable continuous delivery. However, agile development can bring added complexity to an already intricate application landscape.
More and more companies are seeing the benefit of moving to the cloud, and for good reason. Cloud technology offers many benefits to better suit agile enterprises to spearhead digital transformation and keep their company competitive in the ever changing business environment.
