The Benefits of Leveraging Sprint Teams for Application Development and Management

January 19, 2021

Overview

A “sprint” is a period of work during which a team of technicians tackle particular
business goals, one by one. Within time periods as quick as two to three weeks, sprint
teams can prepare, create, test and deploy new responsive programming.

It is a strategy primarily used by large enterprises as sprint teams are able to clear
up backlogs, develop new strategies and implement solutions faster than the traditional
approach.

In this whitepaper, you will explore the various benefits of leveraging this strategy
for custom application development so your organization can accomplish goals quickly.

Why Should You SPRINT?

There are many use cases for leveraging Sprint Teams to assist in projects related to
Application Development and Management.

Here are some common reasons to choose Sprint Teams for ADM:

  • Time:
    This is perhaps the scarcest resource for all organizations. While ADM is
    important,
    your teams may not have the bandwidth to complete these sort of projects at
    scale,
    while
    managing other mission critical IT tasks.
  • Budget:
    It is difficult to hire and maintain a staff dedicated to ADM, while staying
    within
    budget.
  • Skill Set:
    Recruiting, hiring, onboarding, and training new staff with the proper skill set
    for
    ADM
    is a strenuous and time consuming process.
  • Strategy:
    Even with the right team members in place, ADM still requires long term vision
    to
    ensure
    success. Many IT leaders struggle to find the necessary time to craft a strategy
    for
    ADM
    success.
  • Modernization:
    Legacy software simply does not provide all the necessary solutions for today’s
    fast
    paced and ever-changing business environment. Why fall behind due to antiquated
    technology when you can sprint to success by leveraging the latest and greatest
    software
    offerings? Sprint Teams can be used to fast track your organization’s migration
    to
    modern software applications.

Explore the Benefits

The ” as a Service” model has revolutionized how business is conducted, especially in
IT.

Sprint Teams function ” as a Service” in the same way that SaaS (Software- as- a-
Service), PaaS (Platform- as- a- Service), and IaaS (Infrastructure- as- a- Service) do.

The ” as a Service” model allows for great flexibility when it comes to managing
projects for timeline and budget considerations. Companies can implement Sprint Teams
on- demand when in- house teams lack the bandwidth or knowledge base to complete
application development and management projects.

In addition, the on- demand model for Sprint Teams transforms application maintenance
and development projects from a capital expense into an operating expense, which assists
in forecasting IT budgets.

Another key benefit is that organizations can leverage the technological experties and
experience of Sprint Teams to make smarter short and long- term strategic business
decisions, while allowing internal teams to focus on their core responsibilities.

These benefits for utilizing Sprint Teams ” as a Service” allows your company to stay on
budget, while providing the agility and flexibility to achieve your application
development and management goals at scale..

The Sprint Advantage

  • Budget:
    Sprint Teams are on- demand and priced out per Sprint, or per month.
  • Agility:
    Sprint Teams allow for the best technicians to be assigned to a project. Team
    members
    can be swapped out if needed.
  • Flexibility:
    Sprint Teams dig into the data to craft strategies that evolve as the project
    progresses.
  • Predictability:
    Leveraging Sprint Teams changes ADM from a Capital Expense to an Operating
    Expense,
    which makes budget forecasting more predictable.

In Conclusion

Sprint Teams allow companies to get exactly what they need to build and
maintain
their applications – a bespoke team of experts who are available
on-demand to
craft and implement strategies to reprogram current technologies and
react
to new demands.
