Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) automation

Streamline your software development

Enterprises have embraced DevSecOps Automation to transform the software development lifecycle to accelerate the delivery of quality products faster to meet the demands of the dynamic market and have seen some success. Organizations that continue to strive to keep pace with the digital journey have been adopting new technologies, tools, architecture, infrastructure, and security, resulting in many moving parts leading to more complexity than ever. Enterprises are finding it challenging to keep pace to manage these complexities and scale DevSecOps automation adoption of practices, processes, and tools, and automation organization-wide. 

The key challenges organizations face are – 

  • Adoption: teams organized by technology silos make it difficult to adapt to continual change due to their narrow focus, inability to break barriers, and eliminate team gaps

  • Lack of cross-functional skilled teams for accelerating DevOps adoption 

  • Lack of skilled resources – organizations adopt DevOps practices to become agile, efficient, and responsive to market changes. However, with this growth comes a shortage of skilled DevOps

  • Focusing too much or less on tools and automation – adopting multiple tools in the market solves every aspect of automation. One size does not fit all

  • Lack of measurements: identify metrics at different levels and measure continuously to get feedback to improve continually

Agile Transformation at Scale 

Agile Transformation is a journey and goes through various stages of maturity. Maturity is a function of certain characteristics demonstrated by the organization plus the outcomes achieved by them. Many organizations do not produce the expected results despite showing characteristics at a particular maturity level. Therein lies the opportunity for Virtusa to help them scale the maturity curve and achieve desired outcomes.


Value Stream Transformation 

Value Stream Transformation is a holistic term for looking at an organization strategically from vantage points of enterprise Agility, Operating model(s), Value stream Implementation, DevOps and Budgeting, to arrive at the right business and architectural runway that empowers their digital transformation.

Done right, it helps organizations visualize and resolve disconnects, redundancies, and gaps in their value delivery systems—resulting in higher quality, faster delivery, lower cost, and healthier work environments.
