Creating an effective and scalable rapid delivery environment

An effective application and service portfolio is essential to the modern business, but it’s not always possible to get what you need off-the-shelf. This shines a spotlight on software development and delivery, and how well the way you deal with these supports the business. The watchwords here are ‘speed’, ‘agility’, ‘efficiency’, ‘robustness’ and ‘scalability’, enabled through the adoption of modern methods, tools and processes across the whole delivery cycle.
