ThoughtWorks is offering a series of webinars on Continuous Delivery
Most enterprise software development has evolved to a place where releases are infrequent and occur long after features were first conceived. The day of release is a nail-biting affair for which we assemble swat teams and stand ready to scramble and fix the inevitable problems.
This has enormous impact on the businesses that we work for, making us vulnerable to nimble competitors. We are forced to predict (guess) what customers want rather than relying on real user feedback, we can't react to market changes or explore new business ideas quickly, and we end up not building the right thing for our users or at least investing too much money in something where a lighter solution would have sufficed.
It doesn't have to be this way.
"DevCloud - Enabling Continuous Delivery"
Companies can leverage the strengths of Cloud Architecture and apply techniques of Infrastructure-as-a-Service within their own data centers. ThoughtWorks’ recent project spanning several large data centers in India shows how enterprises can use virtualization and automation to gain strategic business advantages. The capabilities that can be achieved could help those enterprises that for competitive reasons must automate and speed up software deployment processes, or even move to a Continuous Delivery model.
