According to Gartner, with the business increasing its rate of change, I&O must improve current practices to meet the ever-changing demands of its end-user community. As a result, I&O groups are currently under intense pressure to accelerate releases. One particular approach to consider is to clearly identify the business requirement for speed, and adjust velocity accordingly. Additionally, it is imperative to take into account that, as the size of the release increases, the speed applied will decrease. With this in mind, Gartner has developed the following "on ramp" for enterprise I&O groups that provides a methodology to improve release cycle times.
