Rapid pace of change and the digitization of business drive the need for agility. We must be able to provide faster time to market, improved efficiency, ensured business continuity and reduced cost. However the reality is that managing the extended software supply chain (SSC) — including an increasing number of stakeholders — can stifle innovative application development; even when agile methodologies are used.
So how should companies address these issues? How do they measure the value and risk of a dynamically evolving system? How do they manage software investments and foster collaboration between a complex array of partners and suppliers?
Effective software delivery and processes can help your organization address these challenges and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. A software supply chain (SSC) coordinates the flow of people, processes and information in an iterative cycle of software delivery activities. This coordination is made possible by applying business management capabilities to the lifecycle of application development.
