Removing the bottlenecks to change

Getting the most value from your cloud enviornment while minimising risk, means focussing on some key areas:


Your security and risk teams are accountable for protecting the organisation. 

  • Are your security risk people integrated into your DevOps? 
  • Do they have the engineering mindset to manage controls at the speed of your business?

Across your multiple DevOps processes, there are thousands of change points currently implemented. 

  • Are you sure that change is being implemented securely and in a way that doesen't put your business at risk? 
  • Can you govern change at the required speed? 
  • Have you worked out how to integrate risk and compliance into the Dev process?

In order to keep driving innovation, value and competitive advantage, technology needs to shift from a static to a dynamic approach. 

  • Do you have the right technology to be nimble? 
  • Are the security, risk and compliance teams keeping up? Are they using the same tools as the DevOps teams?
