Modern delivery in software and services

Randy Wiele and Michael Wolf talk about “modern delivery,” what it is, the value it can deliver, and how to make it work for your organization and your third-party partners.

 Part of our 2019 Trends podcast series

 

“Modern delivery” is a term that refers to unifying methodologies to automate and improve the solution build and release process – think cloud, micro services, agile, DevOps, Design Thinking, Product Management etc. – with methodologies that help ensure the right solutions are being built in the right way to deliver optimum value to customers at the pace of their expectations.

This unified approach delivers two types of value to enterprises. First, it allows them to develop and deploy software at the speed of their customers’ expectations, while still maintaining and improving quality and safety. Second, its process improvement and consistency through automated processes and controls allow it to work whether it’s being employed by in-house resources like developers, designers, and product owners, or outsourcing partners or other third-party vendors.

So, what should organizations do to excel at modern delivery?

In this podcast, Randy Wiele, a managing director in KPMG’s shared services and outsourcing advisory practice, and Michael Wolf, a managing director in KPMG’s CIO advisory group, sat down to discuss:

  • Why you need to adopt a purposeful, “this is who we need to be, and this is what we need to do” mindset around modern delivery
  • Why flexibility and collaboration are so critical to getting modern delivery right
  • How to leverage your outsourcing service provider’s modern delivery capabilities, and retool your contract for mutual advantage

This is one of many installments in our 2019 Trends podcast series.
