Why Read This Report

Tech management pros must continually optimize a broad array of elements: business processes, application experiences, ecosystem relationships, and technology infrastructure. Within their domain, application developers use Agile development processes to affect continuous delivery. Enterprise architecture (EA) professionals need to do the same for the delivery of data services to stay in alignment as they build an architecture that enables resilience. This report highlights findings from 118 participants in Forrester's May 2015 Global Agile Development For Data Management Online Survey and sheds light on what's working, what's been gained, and what to expect as your organization adopts Agile development for data management.
