Better research than anyone

We provide better research than anyone to our members across two major pillars:

Role-based research

Foundational and leading, practical research oriented along the key roles in technology departments such as CIO, CISO, or the (S)VP of Infrastructure.

Industry research

Deep, industry-specific methodologies and guidelines to complement our role-based research and provide context for your industry.

Evolve Your Software Development Lifecycle to a Solution Delivery Lifecycle

Focusing on solutions helps unify the business

This research is intended to:

  • Synthesize existing ITRG research that is siloed and on the cusp of being outdated as it focuses on the concept of software being developed in-house and passed onto operations. In addition, this research has a very waterfall-centric view of the world.
  • Re-frame the conversation from delivering software to delivering solutions. This can be software, processes, products, in-house, outsourced, etc.

Increasingly complicated solutions require more resources

Many delivery groups have evolved to address immediate business concerns in a responsive manner without really understanding how or why they are doing what they are doing.

Today’s rapidly scaling, increasingly complex solutions create mounting pressure on delivery teams to release new features and changes quickly and with sufficient quality.

Challenges include:

  • Increasingly complicated solutions require more resources to work together in lockstep when the organization isn’t prepared.
  • Many organizations lack the critical capabilities and resources needed to satisfy their growing backlog, jeopardizing solution success.

Desired outcome of your SDLC is focused on delivery, not development

  • SDLC must deliver more than software. Business value is generated through the products and services delivered by your SDLC. Teams must provide the required product support, and stakeholders must be willing to participate in the product’s delivery.
  • The greatest need for quality filters is at each handoff in your delivery steps. Handoff between teams dramatically increases risk and the opportunity for errors.
  • Delivery quality and throughput go hand in hand. Focus on meeting minimum process and product quality standards first. Improved throughput will eventually follow.
  • Business integration is not optional. The business must be involved in guiding delivery efforts, ongoing validation, and verification of product changes.

Target Audience

  • CIO, Senior IT Leader, Head of Applications
