Agile Integration Is Critical To Successful Digital Transformation Supporting Agile Delivery Teams
Agile integration — combining integration technologies, Agile delivery techniques, and cloud-native platforms to improve speed and security of software delivery — is a critical foundation for successful digital transformation. The pace of digital innovation and disruption continues to accelerate, driving the need for faster change to business models, processes, and applications. Firms that can quickly reconfigure and reconnect old and new applications have the advantage, and those with slow integration processes are at serious risk of losing customers. An Agile combination of integration and custom development is needed to meet the customer’s expectations and avoid losing market share to competitors that do put the customer first.1 For this study, we assessed the differences between successful and less successful Agile integration and app delivery strategies, why some firms can change their business faster, and what makes one integration strategy better than another.
