Greenfield solutions rarely exist in highly regulated industries. Achieving enterprise performance requires navigating regulatory compliance and systems constraints. The goal is to meet compliance requirements while minimizing any reductions in system performance.
Though many highly regulated industries are slow to adopt continuous integration and deployment models, addressing performance across the development life cycle and within each iteration will ensure reaching performance goals. Across all industries, regulations and requirements affect performance; maintaining performance as a primary objective will enable success.
The primary objective for organizations is to ensure that they are aware of and take steps to comply with relevant laws and regulations while minimizing any impact on system performance. Addressing this challenge takes discipline and an understanding of existing and emerging regulations. Following the process outlined in this paper can and will enable success.
