Supporting DevOps processes with 11 new announcements from HP Software

In case you hadn’t worked it out, I’m an apps nut. I believe that software, and apps in particular, have never been more important to an enterprise’s ability to differentiate and innovate. Every org I meet is under increasing pressure to deliver applications faster because I believe, apps have a shelf-life. 


Yep, just like last week’s bread, apps get crusty, moldy and ultimately useless. They are perishable goods and just like any other kind of inventory, any application that is stuck development and not in production creates waste and reduces agility. A situation that’s made all the more challenging due to constantly changing business needs.


There ARE ways to help you build faster, but you need to think like a boundary spanner...
