It has become crystal clear in 2020, that European organisations need to enhance their core business applications, now more than ever before. If we've learnt anything this year, it's that the old ways of binary working, and slow paced-change won't cut it. We've enforced digital overnight, and with that has come the urgent need for applications to be more adaptive, user friendly and resilient to business challenges of today, and those yet to come.
While we can see the urgency, the problem is only 10% of organizations are excelling at DevOps, even though 70% of organizations claim to be using it today, and this will get to 80% in 2021. Organizations are still stuck with bad governance, processes and outdated skills. They continue to grapple with integrating legacy applications, inefficient manual processes and lack of business observability.
So, what do we mean by enhancing core business applications?
