I am excited to be speaking at this event on Feb 16. Its an opportunity to share and explore what cloud technologies provide in support of running and management of large-scale, globally distributed software projects.
Here is the abstract of my talk:
Cloud-based technologies can address a number of challenges involved in running and managing large-scale software projects using globally distributed teams. They can facilitate consistency of tools used by distributed teams throughout the software development lifecycle, from product definition to delivery. They can enable integration of heterogeneous tools, processes, participants and stakeholders across lifecycle phases, including customers and support. They can provide full transparency of all activities. And finally, they can leverage the elasticity of the cloud to support activity-bursts, such as those used with test automation and continuous build cycles. This session focuses on zAgile's cloud-based collaboration platform for software devleopment, that brings distributed teams together, providing a cohesive and unified environment with full visibility and traceability to facilitate rapid application development cycles.
