How Dev/Test Teams Can Increase Velocity, Reduce Defects
Even with the adoption of Agile methods, impediments to the delivery of quality software remain. One of these impediments is the acquisition and provisioning of environments to support continuous integration and other build-and-test processes.
The emergence of cloud computing—and in particular, the ease with which virtualized infrastructure may be managed and deployed—has provided development and test teams with a powerful tool to aid in their goal of delivering high-value software to business owners and other stakeholders quickly and consistently.
This paper explores how software development and test teams can leverage complex virtualized computing environments, delivered via the cloud, to improve existing workflows and decrease the time-to-value of software development projects.
