Application Development: Improving Productivity Among Evolving Application Platforms


Surveys of development professionals reveal that most shops face a heterogeneous application platform reality. These shops are getting even more diverse as options like lean Web frameworks and rich Internet application technologies grow in popularity, and application platforms like .NET and Java are very different which makes interoperability a challenge.

How do you keep developers productive with process and tools that are optimized for the application platforms they are using without ending up with multiple ALM silos?

Join special guest Jeffrey S. Hammond, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Inc. and Ian Rowlands from ASG, as they discuss some of the options shops have at their disposal for improving consistency and cross platform governance of your application development efforts. Attend this webcast, and you will learn:

  • How do you address the governance challenge?
  • What tools are available for improving productivity?
