IDC MaturityScape: Continuous Delivery

IDC MaturityScape: Continuous Delivery

This IDC study describes the IDC MaturityScape framework for continuous delivery (CD), which identifies the stages, dimensions, outcomes, and actions required for companies to effectively create the continuous delivery discipline needed to drive business growth. This IDC MaturityScape is part of a forthcoming set of research that assists IT and business leadership teams and their staffs with a prescriptive path in advancing along the five stages of continuous delivery maturity while utilizing best practices and benchmarks to deliver impact and business outcomes."CIOs and development executives should use continuous delivery practices as a strategy and set of tactics to drive transformation and efficiencies that maximize business outcomes and drive new product innovation," states Stephen Elliot, research vice president at IDC. "IT executives who don't adopt CD as part of a DevOps strategy face a higher risk of business failure than those who take on the growing challenges of creating applications faster and with higher quality."
