How Cloud Can Work for You: Testing and Development
The returns for accelerating the time-to-market for key software and applications are measurable − and immediate − across all industry verticals. To operate at maximum productivity, your development teams need access to properly configured computing and storage resources, on demand.
However, traditional testing and development environments often tend to inhibit, rather than enable, this level of agility. Testing and development in the cloud is far more efficient. Your developers have access to a single set of virtual resources, via the web. They can provision resources simply by specifying their needs. The provisioning capability within the cloud platform immediately and automatically generates the required virtual environment. This means that new projects can be initiated in a matter of minutes. No delays, no waste, and no incremental capital expenditure for every new request.
Cloud also paves the way for businesses to overcome the legacy challenges associated with testing applications at large scale in a simulated production environment. Ultimately, this translates into a higher quality end product.
