Risks arise as a result of new construction and maintenance of information systems through Agile teams. Within the concept of Continuous SLA, these risks are analysed from different perspectives and provided with countermeasures by the DevOps team, also known as SLA controls. By making these SLA controls measurable, they become suitable planning objects that can be placed on the product backlog. This book is a publication in the continuous everything series. The content consists of the discussion of techniques to identify and manage risks such as the use of Lean indicators, value stream mapping and information, application and technical architecture building blocks. In addition to the core value streams, the enable value streams such as services management, information security and development value streams are also examined for risks that directly or indirectly harm the outcome. The recognized SLA controls are anchored in the Agile way of working by deepening the collaboration between, among others, the product owner and service level manager. This integrated approach to SLA controls makes it possible to get grip on quality in Agile projects.
