This is part four of a five part series where we will present five distinct challenges that if left unaddressed will drastically reduce an organization’s ability to gain the benefits promised by a move to Agile development methods. Even in the most rigid, hierarchical organizations, there’s a good chance that each software development team has evolved its own routines, systems, and set of tools. By extension, this means that every piece of delivered software was created using a unique, non-repeatable process. To further complicate matters, today’s software development teams are commonly dispersed throughout the world, and rarely share best practices. Automation furnishes everyone with a centralized and standardized approach for sharing and reusing common procedures and workflows. This simplifies matters for users and administrators alike, and promotes widespread best practice dissemination.

Come back next week for the final installment of the 5 week series concluding with limited insight.
