Doing More With Less: Helping Software Development Teams Thrive in a Down Economy
Following the economic downturn of 2000 to 2003, the enterprises that pursued short-term cost-cutting strategies such as blindly outsourcing and rollbacks in quality assurance found themselves ill prepared for future opportunities. New research suggests that those development organizations that continue to invest carefully in critical IT areas such as Software Production Management and virtualization will be better positioned for the next cycle of growth and expansion. In fact, so-called "back-end" development processes such as the build-test-deploy cycle are ripe for time- and cost-savings and productivity improvements.
Join noted industry analyst, voke's Theresa Lanowitz, and Electric Cloud VP Engineering Martin Van Ryswyk as they explore specific ways you can transform your software development infrastructure to cut costs yet boost productivity. Attendees will learn how not to just survive the economic downturn, but thrive.
