Whitepaper: 5 considerations for putting dev/test in the cloud

The cloud’s value proposition meets the dynamic requirements of application development and testing environments.

Developers are constantly searching for ways to shorten the often lengthy process of developing an application to suit users’ needs, whereas QA teams often search for ways to lessen the time it takes to test that application to ensure that it is ready to meet enterprise or commercial demands.

Then there’s the time it takes to procure the right infrastructure, set up new environments and install new tools and applications. This is particularly true in the case of agile development, which is characterized by frequent releases of short-cycle code creation (often called “sprints”) and ongoing collaboration with end users that means changing requirements and frequent test cycles.
