Reclaiming dev-test: Using the public cloud to accelerate deployment and increase agility

Platform diversity and the rush to deliver new features are increasing the pressure on testing and development, but many enterprises lack the infrastructure to respond. Provisioning bottlenecks and limited on-premise assets create a resource crunch for Development and QA. In turn, application quality and timelines can suffer, and developers often build “Shadow IT” dev-test environments outside of company-approved resources.

By moving dev-test off-site, businesses can embrace the efficiencies of the public cloud to deploy scalable development environments quickly, decrease time-to-market, and remove IT roadblocks. This session will explore the drivers of Shadow IT dev-test practices and examine the key benefits, risks, and considerations of moving development and QA to the cloud.
