Our global IT organization is in the process of merging application development, security, infrastructure as code, and operations into a continuous, end-to-end, highly automated delivery cycle. This move may enable more agility, higher quality, continued security and more time spent on innovation through a culture, people, process and technology model.
The move to DevSecOps is a transformation journey being undertaken in phases. The aim is to replace administrative efforts in delivery and operations, allowing teams to be more agile and engage in more interesting design and solution work within Accenture. For Accenture’s global IT teams, this is the next phase of building on prior phases of maturing development, operations and automation capabilities.
The early stages of shifting to DevSecOps involve defining the vision and laying the road map of moving development, security and operations capabilities into the New. Global IT’s vision of DevSecOps is to provide a consumable, seamless, automated process that ensures compliant delivery within Accenture guidelines.
To help deliver more capability to the business more quickly, global IT has taken three main steps:
- Defining the outcome and vision of DevSecOps in a measurable and objective way.
- Building technical enablers, capitalizing on the transformation stage of Accenture’s cloud journey while “living in the cloud”.
- Driving adoption of the technical enablers.
Adopting DevSecOps principles, models and practices is transforming how Accenture’s global IT organization delivers and operates and is fostering a culture of innovation and ownership. As we progressively adopt DevSecOps, our teams are able to address the needs of the business faster and with more flexibility while maintaining stable operations and helping keep the enterprise secure.
