What's grabbing our attention nowadays is the shift to the DevOps framework. The change in the basic framework and development techniques require IT managers to refurbish their old rules and develop new principles. The revised guidelines can help them in moving faster and avoiding digital disruption.

Start with 7 Revised Guidelines Contemporary Techpreneurs Must Follow - Part 1

4. Build, Test, Iterate, Repeat Is The New Black

With the emergence and acceptance of agile, the software development realm has transformed completely. Nowadays, IT leaders have to collaborate with their development teams and cultivate a culture which is driven by the principles of novelty, scalability, and flexibility.

Moreover, the majority of development projects work in accordance with a strategic roadmap which helps them to envision the product progress at regular intervals of time. Also, constant delivery and iteration have become key driving forces which encourage techpreneurs to embrace an approach which is focused on creating, testing, and releasing software solutions with better speed and frequency.

In addition, this framework makes developers build solutions, in short cycles where each individual cycle has its own feedback loop. It helps them iterate the end product and shape it in accordance with the specific requirements of the users.

5. Leave A Little Scope To Make A Wise Choice & Keep Your Doors Open

Earlier, IT leaders used to stick to a single vendor and tech associates which caused them trouble at times. But with time they have learnt to keep their options open and connect with partners who are agile as well as flexible. The same goes with the tech vendors as lynching around with one partner could make it even trickier to migrate and try other platforms.

6. Learn The Art Of Being On Their Toes: 24*7 Customer Support

Nowadays, techpreneurs are providing their staff with greater flexibility in regard to work timings. The employees can work remotely and at their convenience. But as freedom does not come without a price these professionals are expected to deliver their best.

The techies need to master the knack of being available 24*7 for answering and helping out the customers and quality prospects. Though, many organizations are using intelligent bots and other intuitive virtual support agents, but the value of a human touch can never be overpowered.

7. Comprehend The Need To Come Out Of That Shell & Contribute Something Valuable To The Bigger Picture

Previously, IT leaders were treated as the professionals who need to bang their heads day in and day out in the server rooms. Also, they weren't given the freedom to innovate and try different things. But the new IT landscape offers these geeks with an opportunity to come out of their shells and be an integral part of the core team.

Moreover, they now have the liberty to experiment and showcase their creative side. The only thing they need to succeed is that learning how to add more products or services to the company's portfolio in order to diversify it. Also, study and analyze the ways which can let their organization expand into new markets.

The IT leaders who are the torch bearers for the tech-driven organizations have to dump old practices and adopt the new ones which could help them in adding value to their company's portfolio. These seven guidelines are revised and designed in the same fashion and can be used by techpreneurs to deal with the volatile landscape efficiently and achieve their goals.
