Webinar: Agility and Cloud Development

How Agility in Development Supports Cloud Development and Installation Practices

By special guest speaker Peter Varhol

Many development teams are looking to public clouds such as Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure to rapidly begin development efforts and get early software quickly into the hands of users. The development environment can be provisioned within minutes, rather than days or even weeks, and developers can immediately start coding the first features of an agile effort. This combination of cloud development and agile process can accelerate Enterprise transformation by making essential features available across the Enterprise far more quickly than with traditional development methods.

But building and installing to the cloud offers the same challenges as any development effort, with the need to install seamlessly and quickly to a cloud environment. If cloud installs take too long, the team will do fewer of them, negating many of the advantages of agility. An important part of the install is also the clean uninstall, so that the same virtual environment can be used over and over again, maintaining user settings and other critical information already in the environment.

Watch this special Webinar that discusses how agility in development supports Enterprise transformation, including cloud development and installation practices. The Webinar also covers how the build and installation of new application versions to the cloud accelerates the ability of teams to get new features into the hands of users, which can in turn accelerate transformation and support new business processes.
