It’s a low-risk, low-cost approach to extend an application’s proven value and service quality. addressing regulatory requirements and responding to opportunities. Teams using different tools and manual processes lack visibility into how changes in one part of an application on one platform will impact other parts of the application on another platform. To reduce business risks and optimize efficiency, teams need tools that help improve quality across platforms and in the software-delivery lifecycle, thereby boosting productivity and agility through automating crossteam collaboration and improving predictability through governance and best-practice guidance. Most organizations have been slow to adopt modern software tools to the degree necessary to increase the efficiency and overall effectiveness of individuals and teams responsible for applicat ion maintenance and modernization projects.
