BOSTON, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The BizOps Coalition, which advocates for fundamental change in the way business and IT collaborate in modern software development, today announced its BizOps Manifesto, a new framework designed to connect technology investments to business outcomes.

This misalignment often creates waste and hinders productivity and innovation.

“The harsh, ‘new normal’ reality requires a significant focus on connecting business metrics and outcomes to every IT product and project.
