As your IT environments grow more complex, dynamic, and critical to the business, you can’t afford to waste time and resources on manual, labor-intensive efforts. Discover how, by leveraging BizOps approaches and technologies like AIOps and machine learning, teams can maximize efficiency and speed mean time to resolution.
Within many organizations today, IT teams don’t collaborate closely enough with business units in their organizations, which is leading to mounting frustration, significant costs, and lost opportunities. Review a survey that draws from interviews with more than 200 executives to provide a current, compelling look at the demand for BizOps.
Information silos have posed a major problem for enterprises for some time, and the challenges seem poised to get even more intractable. As technology environments grow increasingly dynamic, complex, and interrelated, having silos across planning, app delivery, and ITOps creates a myriad of problems.
While most IT leaders focus on the technological implications of these silos, there are also equally problematic effects on people. By creating finger-pointing and inhibiting collaboration, these silos have a negative impact on employee morale, stifling motivation and engagement. The good news is BizOps can help.
It is critical to be aware of the multi-faceted implications of information silos, and how they affect the three top barriers to digital transformation: culture, resources, and talent. While there’s a variety of potential solutions and approaches to this, BizOps is increasingly key. While DevOps has enabled teams to make strides towards continual improvement of software development, it doesn’t necessarily account for business outcomes. In comparison, BizOps offers best practices that help put business outcomes at the center of everything, from value management to software development to ITOps.
By cultivating the establishment of data-driven, cross-functional teams, BizOps can help teams boost operational efficiency and unify otherwise siloed digital projects and initiatives. In particular, this ability to combine siloed digital projects can present massive potential for accelerating digital transformation.
By employing BizOps best practices, ITOps teams can be united by a clear purpose, one centered on business outcomes. Therefore, BizOps can be a great way to relegate silos to their rightful place: the past.
