Why -- and how -- BizDevOps is going to change everything

Last updated:November 2016

Editor's note

What's in a name, anyway? Some call it DevOps 2.0, others BizDevOps, and the most ambitious and inclusive refer to it as BizDevSecTestOps, but by any name, it's going to dramatically change the way software is imagined, developed and released. BizDevOps will bring the business side, developers and operations people to the table at the very start and, unlike what happens today, they will all remain, at that same "table" throughout the entire process. All decisions about software will be decided with the business priorities in mind, thanks to a new generation of digital performance monitoring tools that will make it easy to pull the business, software and user metrics together in one place.

In a BizDevOps world, software developers will have clearer priorities and shorter backlogs, but fewer opportunities for creativity and autonomy. Artificial intelligence (AI) and low-code/no-code development platforms may also erode the "idea" of developer as time passes. At the same time, software testers, already under fire from a DevOps-born automation push, will face the biggest reinvention challenges of their lives. Those with business understanding, an interest in data science and openness to new experiences will fare the best.

BizDevOps is just the latest evolution in software development, and it can be hard to keep up with it all. Here you'll find expert advice, the latest news and product roundups, as well as all the relevant trends in everything from data science to low-code/no-code and AI development platforms.

1Using no-code/low-code platforms

What do low-code/no-code tools have to do with BizDevOps? The introduction of these platforms is bringing development to the business side. Get a better understanding of why low-code/no-code platforms are garnering attention and how the enterprise could benefit from less coding.

2How APM fits into BizDevOps

Application performance management gives business, development and operations teams the information needed to make strategic decisions. BizDevOps is virtually impossible to accomplish successfully without APM tools. Learn how metrics come in handy, see how to pick the right tools for your enterprise and look at comparative APM software.
