Today, a key role of IT organizations is to deliver a framework for business evolution. Traditional development organizations have evolved to become modern software factories whose innovations are directly impacting bottom line revenue. They are delivering new features and code at accelerating intervals, then working with Operations and Application Support groups to streamline a never-ending flow of refinements to hardware, software, application code, and networks. 

Modern IT practices, including Agile development, DevOps, and Continuous Delivery are a big part of this story. Such practices are designed to accelerate software delivery and ease the cross-stage transitions that occur throughout the software lifecycle. At the same time, they help transform the institutionalized change processes characteristic of so many businesses from ongoing chaos to controlled, predictable IT and business transformation. 

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) research keeps a constant finger on the pulse of IT departments as they adapt to these new realities. As IT increasingly takes center stage as a key enabler for digital evolution, IT leaders are being forced to rethink their automation strategies to ensure that software services meet the growing needs of both the business and the consumer.

In the spring of 2017, EMA conducted a survey on DevOps and Continuous Delivery practices in modern businesses  designed to explore the organizational and tools-related challenges impacting today's IT practitioners. This EMA white paper highlights key findings from that study, focusing on the value proposition of automated products supporting business growth in a world of constant change.
