As you adopt Agile development methodologies, your application release team is struggling to manage the dramatically increased frequency of your application build-test-deploy processes. Your IT team is also stressed -- they now need to provide lots of compute infrastructure (and deliver it quickly) to support the dev/test processes.
What you need is automation -- an Agile Development Cloud - to successfully address the development and IT issues.
The Agile Development Cloud provides:
* Process automation to accelerate and manage the build-test-deploy process
* Integrated cloud automation to rapidly provision and de-provision virtual compute environments to support the dev/test process
During the session, you will learn:
* How to evaluate whether your organization would benefit from an Agile Development Cloud
* The 7-step strategic roadmap for marrying speed, agility and automation in both the Development and Infrastructure groups
