BOSTON, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The BizOps Coalition, which advocates for fundamental change in the way business and IT collaborate in modern software development, today announced its BizOps Manifesto, a new framework designed to connect technology investments to business outcomes.
Leaders across industries have learned that too often, software investments are not tied to business outcomes. A recent survey revealed that 78 percent of respondents said the disconnect between IT and business units results in significant costs. This misalignment often creates waste and hinders productivity and innovation.
“The harsh, ‘new normal’ reality requires a significant focus on connecting business metrics and outcomes to every IT product and project. To accomplish these objectives, IT leadership teams require pragmatic operating models and frameworks that reduce business risks and increase operational and team efficiencies,” said Stephen Elliot, program vice president, Management Software and DevOps at IDC. “IT and business leaders who adopt BizOps have a great opportunity to win now, drive more team collaboration, deliver business outcomes, and thrive in the future.”
