BIMODAL IT FOR BETTER DIGITAL PERFORMANCE

Experience
No.: 
71

Digitalisation is the new core competence of today. In this regard, companies are
dealing with various uncertainties on a daily basis, be it uncertain environments,
projects, investment decisions or uncertainty within technology. Behind the
technology, there are still humans dealing with the challenges. The market is
asking companies for innovative scenarios and if they are not on track, they lose
out to the competitors who are already riding the wave.

Business is developing ever faster, but on the other hand, we have standard processes,
teams, the usual waterfall delivery and IT release management, which do not match
the trend any longer. You may ask yourself, how you can align. In the mobile area,
we have updates constantly popping up in our apps, so why does it work differently
with the solutions that companies release for internal and external use?

Some time ago, the consulting company Gartner came up with a term incorporating
practices that many medium-sized agile consulting companies had already been
implementing: Bimodal IT. Its principle is based on shifting to a higher velocity
within the IT department, either by moving only one part of the processes to
a higher speed and keeping some systems still in the slower zone, or by completely
shifting to the new higher speed.

Implementing the bimodal IT approach requires assets that enable faster
delivery. The good news is that you do not need to own them all and make
the transformation all by yourself. A suitable partner owns the needed assets
to accompany its customer on the way.

In this issue of Experience, we want to highlight four crucial factors of digital
transformation: user adoption in order to deliver solutions that are fast, intuitively
used and requiring no special user training; continuous delivery moving from
development to the production area; being people driven so that teams involved do
not back off in the face of new approaches; and last but not least, having the right
partner on your side when shifting to higher velocity.

We hope you enjoy reading this issue and that we will inspire you to apply
new approaches based on our project experience.

Best regards,
Gerard Esparducer
