How can PaaS improve Agile methodologies?
Time-to-market and time-to-value in businesses, organizations, and teams have taken center stage as we all strive to improve and automate our processes, and rely heavily on software to do much of our heavy information lifting. After all, what is software, except a series of smart, automated information management processes?
Agile development methodologies are a response to the changing nature of bringing software ideas to real-world fruition. In short, agile at its heart is about taking business processes and translating them to discrete applications that solve information management issues really fast. These factors make Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Agile development a match made in heaven.
This whitepaper "PaaS and Agile Development: the Application Platform for Enterprise Transformation" covers everything a CIO, software product manager, scrum master, or architect needs to know about leveraging PaaS as part of an Agile strategy.
