For large organizations, success will now result on their ability to develop and use software. They are adopting DevOps to shortcut the time to market from business requirement to solution deployment. They are leveraging PPT, the three pillars for DevOps: People, Processes, Technology.

As a matter of fact current file transfer solutions are not easy to integrate in such a DevOps framework. 1/ There is no repository of existing file transfer and ability to detect the impact an application change may have on existing file transfer. 2/ There are no API to command the deployment of file transfers from a DevOps orchestration tool.
It is time to deploy to be MFT:ready for DevOps.
