Delivers on your promise, at pace, and at scale
In short, engineering’s role is to figure out what's possible through technology, and execute it. Then, it tests and refines based on customer needs. In the past, technology was primarily functional, used to drive efficiency. Now, tech is used to solve problems and create value by connecting the back end with the front end.
A modern engineering capability is built upon three factors: architecture, ways of working and talent. In each, it requires a shift in focus to product and value. How do you get there? Through the three methodologies mentioned above: agile, lean and DevOps.
Engineers of today have to be plugged into factors outside their field and more interactive with other capabilities than in the past. They need to be able to handle ambiguity in how various tech is applied to make a product or service work. They need to know the customer and have visibility into feedback loops. They need to work in multi-disciplinary, autonomous teams. And they need to work towards shorter cycles and continuous delivery.
This is where cloud comes in. Cloud can be viewed as a design component—how a company can create flexibility and agility within its systems architecture. The application of cloud evolves over time, though, so businesses need a clear vision for how to use cloud in the context of the products they’re creating and the value streams within them.
