CI/CD is Just the Beginning: How to Optimize End-to-end Value Creation with the Flow Framework™

DevOps practices, like CI/CD, have been key for speeding up software delivery from code commit to code deploy. Yet at large organizations, development work is still disconnected from the business needs and teams are struggling to accommodate decades old software architectures; resulting in substantial technical debt. To survive digital disruption, enterprises need a new approach for connecting the business to the software development and delivery pipeline – the Flow Framework™.
During this talk, Nicole Bryan will introduce the Flow Framework™ which allows organizations to tie DevOps and CI/CD to upstream activities like feature design, requirements management, and original customer requests, resulting in optimized end-to-end value creation across the entire organization.
