Application deployment and maintenance are too slow and expensive because of a gap that has long existed between application development and production operations. Where “apps” is about delivering value to the lines of business as rapidly as possible through innovative new application features, “ops” is about ensuring operating stability, compliance, and cost control through standardization and stringent change management. The gap between them can inhibit business responsiveness, delay deployments and cause organizations to miss opportunities. It can take months and sometimes even years to deploy an enterprise application—and this stands in the way of business value.
