Agile and DevOps Transformation Practice

Organizations are being called upon to be more agile and responsive, and building and deploying software quicker has become a major imperative. The mandate is to eliminate manual processes and handoffs that could cause errors, delays, and loss of productivity, which is possible only by transforming to embrace Agile and DevOps together.
 
Marlabs’ ADfusionX methodology, which is an end-to-end framework, features a best in class approach with transformation combining the best of both Agile and DevOps to streamline the entire product development life cycle to be on par with the ever-demanding quicker and quality product releases. While it is important that an enterprise must have a fine balance on both Agile and DevOps in order to gain operational efficiencies, ADfusionX methodology does exactly the same. Two sides of the same coin, Agile ensures rapid development of production-ready code while DevOps enables seamless testing, deployment, and operations management.
