This is the age of the high velocity business. The rates of change experienced in nearly every industry during the past five years have been unprecedented. Some of these changes occurred as a result of the "great recession", the ensuing economic meltdown, and the massive legislative and regulatory modifications which followed. Others related to cost reductions across the board, with virtually every IT department "doing more with less". Mergers and acquisitions took a toll on business and IT resources as well, as diverse companies were integrated into single entities. Technology innovations also had an impact, as the growth of Cloud and mobile altered both IT and customer engagement patterns. 

Today, this transformed business landscape is dramatically accelerating the need to adapt. While it seems intuitive that the most innovative companies with the smartest executives have been the most successful in weathering these storms, the reality is that good ideas no longer suffice. In fast-changing business environments, the ability to execute is equally important. Execution, combined with innovative thinking and good ideas, is the key differentiator setting leading companies apart from trailing competitors. 

This emphasis on execution is one reason why Agile development and Continuous Delivery of business software have become such hot topics. Today's businesses run on software, and their ability to adapt is largely dependent on the speed with which they can transform ideas into action across the entire application delivery chain. 

This white paper describes this evolution. It discusses key concepts supporting the Agile business and the foundational role of enterprise management tools in automating the "ideas to action" cycle. It approaches these topics from a lifecycle perspective, encompassing modern DevOps products and practices. Finally it details the key role played by CA Technologies' DevOps-focused solutions in enabling Agile application delivery.
