Hence agility in digital programs to adapt to the business needs is essential.
Industrialisation in digital context is about creating 100% life cycle automation. Digital problem solving involves multiple platforms and methodologies coming together. This is achieved by the synergy in solutioning between multiple systems; systems of interactions, systems of engagements, systems of integrations, systems of records and systems of intelligence. A scaled life cycle automation covers the whole span of program from requirements, architecture, design, development, validation to support and change request phases. The delivery processes efficiently realize continuous business planning, continuous integration, continuous delivery strategy with a KPI based governance system. This performance management approach for automation enables a 360-degree retrospective model for optimization of delivery processes.

The digital ways of working are how seamlessly industrialization and agility get reinvented for each program to work best for realizing customer expectations. There are multiple success models within clients also that proved successes. Agility is also about adapting the ways of working on the models that yield best results for the digital transformation programs.
People become the essential element of digital programs. Enabling & connecting people guarantees successes.
