Summary

Today's application development and delivery (AD&D) leaders need speed and quality at a low cost to create software that competes for customers. Agile and DevOps practices enable companies to achieve all three, but paralysis over compliance, audit, or security concerns causes many to cling to manual governance practices that are ineffective even at slower speeds. This report describes how application delivery organizations are applying automated supply chain management practices to improve both application delivery governance and business results. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically to ensure continued relevance.
