Digital Leadership Priorities for Army Digitization

The Army has invested considerable time and money digitizing weapons systems. The Army has also made some innovative progress in the development of service-wide digitally based references sources like Army Knowledge Online, and training programs like Army University Access Online. Despite these initiatives, the Army's tendency to favor the digitization of hardware is evident in the Army's Digitization Master Plan. This tendency discounts some of the most impressive potential advances that can be gained from mobilizing an organization's information resources and putting these resources in the hands of operational personnel. This paper argues that the Army should make two fundamental changes in its orientation to digitization. First, it should place higher priority on providing Army personnel the digital tools that help them do their jobs better. Second, it should organize its information resources into knowledge centers that facilitate the execution of the Army's mission. Changing the Army's digitization priorities will not be easy because of the complexity of digital systems and the significant sunk costs that the Army faces in terms of its digital infrastructure. Nevertheless, refocusing the service's digital priorities will have substantial payoff in terms of mission performance and overall operational and training effectiveness.

This concise guide assists leaders who are accountable for the rapid development of high-quality software applications. In DevOps for Digital Leaders, deep collective experience on both sides of the dev–ops divide informs the global thought leadership and penetrating insights of the authors, all three of whom are cross-portfolio DevOps leaders at CA Technologies. Aruna Ravichandran, Kieran Taylor, and Peter Waterhouse analyze the organizational benefits, costs, freedoms, and constraints of DevOps. They chart the coordinated strategy of organizational change, metrics, lean thinking, and investment that an enterprise must undertake to realize the full potential of DevOps and reach the sweet spot where accelerating code deployments drive increasing customer satisfaction, revenue, and profitability. Digital leaders are charged to bridge the dev–ops disconnect if their organizations are to survive and flourish in a business world increasingly differentiated by the degree to which dynamic application software development harmonizes with operational resilience and reliability. This short book applies the DevOps perspective to the competitive challenge, faced by every high-performance IT organization today, of integrating and automating open source, cloud, and enterprise tools, processes, and techniques across the software development life cycle from requirements to release. What You Will Learn: Remove dependencies and constraints so that parallel practices can accelerate the development of defect-free software Automate continuous delivery across the software life cycle to eliminate release bottlenecks, manual labor waste, and technical debt accumulation Generate virtualized production-style testing of applications through real-time behavioral analytics Adopt agile practices so operations teams can support developer productivity with automated feedback, streamline infrastructure monitoring, spot and resolve operations issues before they impact production, and improve customer experience Identify the DevOps metrics appropriate to your organization and integrate DevOps with your existing best practices and investment Who This Book Is For: IT leaders in large companies and government agencies who have any level of responsibility for the rapid development of high-quality software applications.
