DevOps is Essential to SAFe® Continuous Value Flow

Continuous Flow from Development Through Deployment

Continuous Value Flow consists of delivering usable and reliable solutions all the way to end users. To achieve the goal of rapid and continuous value delivery, the deployment process must be as agile as the development process.

Operations and Deployment Are Often the Bottleneck

Rapid software development provides no real value if the deployment process takes months. Operations practices designed for waterfall practices prolong value delivery, even when development teams are Agile. Development and Operations teams must be synchronized to achieve true Agile at scale.

"In most cases, development teams still deliver solutions to production in large batches…which adversely affects release commitments and delivered quality."

"Value occurs only when the end users are successfully operating the solution in their environment"

Icon Gets Operations "On the Train"

SAFe requires Dev and Ops to be tightly aligned. Otherwise, release trains cannot integrate, validate, and deploy solutions on cadence. Icon’s DevOps Accelerator helps you quickly get Operations on the train to ensure your value streams have a smooth path from development through deployment.

"In order for you to keep up with customer demand, you need to create a deployment pipeline. You need to get everything in version control. You need to automate the entire environment creation process. You need a deployment pipeline where you can create test and production environments, and then deploy code into them, entirely on demand.
