DevOps reporting provides a feedback loop that is the key to understanding how well teams deliver, how fast processes change and how best to help people plan when a company switches to agile. Another advantage of this type of reporting is that it also seeks to be inclusive, bridging the gaps between teams outside of the development organisation.
Startups founded by entrepreneurs want to develop software and products quickly to get them to market and determine if their idea is in demand and viable. Therefore they need to work in an agile way and adapt quickly to development changes and market requirements. Many startups do not have experienced teams in place to cover all areas that are needed to get an application to launch, so Teams as a Service can provide a dedicated team with specialists that can drive product development alongside a founders vision. A strong effective team is essential to lay the foundations for a successful business.

As teams worldwide are fully immersed in remote working it is important to focus on team collaboration and business continuity. Stand-Ups are one of the most common Agile techniques to ensure delivery of sprints, communicate team members contributions or blockers, and contribute to team cohesion.
In the late 1990’s, several new methodologies began to gain acceptance in the software development community. These methodologies emphasised close collaboration between the development teams and business stakeholders; frequent delivery of business value, tight, self-organising teams; and smart ways to write, test, and deliver code.
