From the foreword by Jonathon Wright:
“In the digital economy, every business is a software business, and the software landscape is changing forever. The traditional Core IT approach to providing business value through lengthy plan-build-test-deploy cycles can no longer deliver value in an increasingly competitive, consumer-centric landscape. Merely compressing these cycles through adopting iterative or agile methods does not address the challenges organisations face in terms of innovation, speed to market, quality and resilience.
Shifting to an Adaptive IT model calls for a new practice that requires accelerated communication, collaboration, integration, measurement and automation. Whether you label this as Digital Transformation, understanding the detail of this journey is an essential part of every organisation’s journey to becoming a Digital Enterprise.”
