IT organizations have grown in size, scale, and complexity over a period of time. The growth has been exponential with organizations spreading across multiple geographies and cultures. Traditionally IT teams have been working in Project based model with teams structured around developing, supporting and maintaining applications. Waterfall was a predominantly used methodology in the past. In order to reduce time to market and deliver high value features to end customers faster, Agile methodologies were invented at the start of the millennium. Product organizations were the early adopters of Agile & DevOps practices pioneering the formation of feature teams. Looking at the benefits of Agile, non-Product organizations have also followed the suite to reap benefits, serve their customers better & faster and gain competitive advantage over their rivals.
