Enterprise Cloud Development: A Paradigm shift
There’s no denying it – Enterprise Cloud Development (ECD) represents the next evolution in managing modern software development processes across the enterprise. Moving to the cloud is a smart move for businesses today.
Organizations are looking toward ECD as a means to better manage, secure and support their IT infrastructure. It helps reduce complexity, lower costs and improve scalability. It has also been predicted by experts that in the coming years cloud services will encompass most IT solutions.
There are good reasons for an enterprise to consider moving from a traditional in-house IT model to the cloud. First, enterprises will see benefits such as increased storage, greater mobility, more flexibility and faster time to market. Another factor that favors the move is that budgets constraints often prevent small enterprises from making IT infrastructure investments – such as investing in new hardware or software. ECD provides a way for enterprises to more cost-effectively upgrade their IT infrastructure.
- Securely manage code, document, conversations
- Round-the-clock monitoring
- Ability to integrate commercial and open source ALM tools in the cloud
- Robust disaster recovery solutions
- Minimize downtime of critical applications
- Ease of upgrade
- Support a mobile or geographically dispersed workforce
- Enterprises can easily scale up or down to meet their changing needs
ECD is a powerful new trend that enables development teams to leverage the power of agile processes and integrate development and operations team. It provides organizations a secure and compliant path for managing software development and deployment in a hybrid cloud environment. It also enables organizations to embrace the benefits of the cloud at their own pace.
An ECD approach can give enterprise IT groups instant access to many of the tools they need to solve critical tasks, increasing productivity and accelerating innovation. Depending upon the level of ECD adoption, enterprises can achieve anywhere from 10% to 80% improvements in cost savings, productivity, and time-to-market acceleration, all while meeting corporate security and compliance requirements.
