IT Value Scenarios
For true value realisation, we recommend our customers to focus their efforts on a particular value scenario to ensure that the integrated processes work effectively and efficiently. Once each value scenario works well, then the entire IT Value Chain can be integrated.
There is also an opportunity to introduce automation into each one of the Value Scenarios or the entire IT Value Chain by incorporating Continuous Delivery Pipelines and DevOps principles.
