Agility goes beyond the software domain and today is being increasingly applied to other areas too – IT Infrastructure, operations, and business processes that are non-software in nature. The rise in Agile methods is because Agile is practical; it drives results and performance in real-time and adds value, making operations smooth and optimized.

The SimpliAxis Agile Infrastructure Boot Camp is where participants learn the basic concepts of Agility and also how these iterative and collaborative executions of practices, events, and principles can make a difference in the day-to-day functioning of the user. Starting with the core principles and concepts, the training moves onto understanding Scrum and Kanban, to understanding roles, teamwork, continuous workflows, visualizing workflows, eliminating bottlenecks, and embracing a culture of continuous improvement; participants are trained in practicing excellence in their work. Infrastructure-as-a-service needs processes and systems that are Agile, responsive, and fast. With Agile DevOps working at neck-breaking speed and effectiveness, there could be a lacuna if other concerned departments are not as swift as Agile. Agile practices need to be part and parcel of other relevant areas beyond development. It enables the downstream technology value chain to be robustly developed and integrated with upstream technology to ensure that such gaps do not appear in the organizational gamut.
