Why Read This Report

Agile development practices and continuous delivery are essential tools, but so is an architecture that enables resilience. Combining Agile and architecture is challenging. Agile development and continuous delivery help enterprises change quickly, but more than that, organizations need the ability to quickly and continually make one change after another after another. In other words, they need the benefits of both Agile delivery and architecture. But bringing the two together can be quite difficult because their respective goals of delivering now and preparing for the future often appear to be at odds. This report identifies more than 30 specific practices and culture changes that enable application development and delivery (AD&D) pros and architects to work together to deliver sustainable business agility.
