Endava recognized in Gartner market guide for Agile and DevOps Services
Endava has been identified as a Representative Vendor in an October 2017 Gartner Market Guide intended to provide an understanding of the Agile and DevOps services market and its offerings.
According to Gartner, “Agile, iterative or lean methodologies are now used by 57% of software development teams. Some IT organisations cross-train their existing employees or recruit new developers with agile skills.” The report continues, “One in three organisations buys agile services, and one in four buys DevOps services.”
The 2017 Gartner Research Circle survey included in the report found that “the most important attributes are the business and technical competencies of the service provider's delivery team. The challenge for buyers is to ensure that service providers demonstrate this competency during the sales process before the project has begun.” The report continues, “buyers reported that they receive most value from external service providers that can help them change culture and shift to a more agile mindset.”
“Through our deep understanding of Agile methodologies, we help clients achieve collaboration between all layers of their organisation, ensuring business and technology goals are aligned. Our teams drive the adoption of Agile practices whilst delivering products and services, and this leads to improved tailoring and better adoption of the new practices. We also create a strong core of Agile practitioners from client staff and as a result, create a pervasive Agile culture. This, coupled with knowledge of a wide range of technologies, allows us to select and apply the most suitable ones, as well as the ability to quickly scale our efforts to support the full software lifecycle.
” said George Anghelache, Head of Agile Transformation, Endava
Endava takes an incremental approach to projects, which allows the planning, adaptation and delivery of solutions that increase their clients’ responsiveness, mitigate risks and achieve continuous delivery of valuable software. Endava has established a strong CD & DevOps practice and successfully delivered solutions on AWS and Azure infrastructures using technology such as Ansible, Git, Docker and Jenkins to accelerate releases and help their clients reduce time to market.
The Gartner research also notes “like the larger service providers, midsize system integrators often supplement on-site teams with nearshore delivery centers where a substantial time zone overlap with their customers facilitates agile projects.” Endava is well positioned for this and has substantial experience in delivering globally distributed Agile programmes from our delivery centres in LATAM and Central Europe.
