RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:

"

Today, organizations struggle to innovate; taking months or years to move from idea to implementation. The problem is compounded by the time it takes IT to order, provision, test and deploy applications and infrastructure. Test environments have to be nimble and development processes need to be aligned. By associating automation and continuous quality validation across hybrid delivery environments, IT can supercharge the business."

CloudEXPO Stories
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several long phases into a faster, more efficient process. This methodology has a name, of course: Continuous delivery. As Jones pointed out at CloudEXPO, continuous delivery allows developers to trim the fat off tasks and gives them more time to focus on the individual parts of the process. But remember-implementing this methodology requires organizations to offload management of databases, infrastruct...
