Whereas it used to take time to set up development infrastructure to build new functionality and products, new environments or frameworks can be spun up in minutes now, leveling the playing field for smaller players and teams. The cloud, more distributed architectures, and the spread of DevOps practices has granted the industry greater flexibility in speed and delivery. The convergence of all of this means that any organization that is leaving testing out of the transformation is going to get left behind.
Though launching a digital transformation may seem daunting, not changing anything is also a decision with consequences of its own. Transformations begin with small changes, and are best thought of as a constant process, and a daily part of your job. The journey never finishes – so keep an eye toward the future and measure your success in milestones along the way.
