DEVOPSdigest List: TOP ADVANTAGE OF BEING AGILE
Deadline has been extended. Submissions for this DEVOPSdigest List must be sent by Monday, May 1, 2017.
Following up on the previous list covering how to become agile, DEVOPSdigest now asks: What do you see as the greatest advantage to being agile, for a development team, DevOps team or IT organization?
DEVOPSdigest is looking for IT-related advantages and bottom-line business benefits. The quotes should be short and sweet. Get right to the benefit in a sentence or two.
Please focus only on one advantage in the quote. DEVOPSdigest places the quotes in specific categories, so if you provide a quote with multiple advantages, it will not be usable.
If you want to expand on this topic, you are always welcome to write a blog about it on DEVOPSdigest, and your blog will be linked to the list.

Please observe the following guidelines when submitting a quote for an APMdigest or DEVOPSdigest list
■ APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest reserve the right to edit any quote to ensure it meets the following guidelines. However, APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest will never make any edits to intentionally change the meaning of the original quote.
■ The inclusion of any quote on a list is at the sole discretion of APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest.
■ The quote should be from the most appropriate expert within your company. When you submit the quote, make sure to include the name and title of the person being quoted.
■ The quote should address the specific question posed for the list. Quotes that do not clearly address the question cannot be included on the list.
■ The quote should be objective, vendor-neutral, and not promote your company, products, partners or any vendor or brand — or criticize the competition.
■ The quote should be about one paragraph or less — about 2-4 sentences. Average responses are between 50 and 150 words. Anything more than that is probably too long. Quotes that are too long will be edited by the editor. If you want to talk about the topic at length, you are free to submit a separate blog on the topic.
■ The quote should provide only one answer to the question, and focus on that specific point. A quote with multiple points jammed into it will not be usable. For example, if the list is about a type of technology that will achieve a certain goal, the quote should cover only one technology option; not multiple technologies. The format of the lists requires all quotes to be categorized, and it is difficult to place a quote on the list when it fits into multiple categories. If the quote fits into multiple categories, it may be edited into pieces, or may not be included on the list.
■ The categories for each list are buckets that similar quotes fit into. If you check out any of the sample lists, the categories are represented by the headers. Categories of a list are not predetermined — they are determined only by the submissions received for that list.
■ The quote should be specific. When a quote is too general, it may not fit into any specific category, and therefore cannot be included in the list.
■ The format of the quote should not be a list of bullet points. The quote should read as a cohesive paragraph.
■ If you are unclear whether a quote will be appropriate for the current list, run it by the editor.
■ Please send the quote by the designated deadline. APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest cannot guarantee that a late quote will be included on the list.
■ Each quote will include a hyperlink to the company's home page — the exact link to the company home page without any additional code. Only sponsors of APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest can use a different URL.
■ APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest will always send an email to you or your designated contact (such as a PR rep) with a link to the page whenever one of your quotes is posted as part of a list.
