Technical challenges need a strategic response

Complex programs that require technical integrations of multiple components experience frequent architectural issues. When connecting archaic legacy systems and newer/disruptive technologies, enterprise architecture proves daunting, and performance, infrastructure and security issues occur often. To alleviate these pains and others, establish an enterprise architecture roadmap in advance. Stimulate innovation so that new products and services can ride in the express lane within the organization. Rely on automation and speed. Implement DevOps. Build, test and integrate continuously and deliver frequently. Prevent build up of technical debt and synchronize delivery of multiple teams, prioritizing systems integration before launching releases. Tackle potential points of interaction and critical integrations early in the program.

Propelled by the resounding success of agile on a smaller scale, large global enterprises are increasingly trying to tap the power of agile across distributed teams and complex initiatives. However, while agile works well in the nimble setting of smaller teams and projects, finding the right recipe to make it work across the large-scale, complex enterprise environment is a tough order.  There are many challenges and the chance of failure looms large.

In this slideshow, CI&T’s Felipe Brito walks through five critical steps to harness the potential of these self-sufficient teams to tackle bigger problems across the enterprise. It may be easier said than done, but agile can drive innovation and streamline the development process in a complex enterprise environment. While the agile manifesto is a great starting point, enterprises need to extend the manifesto horizons, assess the core business challenge, and create organizational momentum to solve that challenge.
