End result is worse – it results in loss of mutual trust and doubts creep in around whether the organization is really serious to walk the talk.
After investing in people, technology investment in order to have a long term, sustainable growth. In simple words, it requires early investment in automating every possible high cost, repetitive manual effort. Sooner the start, lesser the waste.
Technology runway ensures you maintain the most relevant code, resulting in relevant infrastructure to maintain (systems, test cases, tests) and deliver exactly whats customers need now with minimal overheads. It also ensures you don’t end up with high maintenance legacy code and features that no one wants. Key lies in end to end automation of entire flow.

- Agile Project Management
- DevOps, Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Deployment
