Agile Methodologies Accentuate Benefits of Cloud Computing

Advances in technologies such as virtualization, storage and high-speed network access, as well as a growing comfort with Internet security and reliability, have led to increasing adoption of Cloud Computing. Cloud Computing is becoming the vehicle of choice for application delivery because it is convenient to both the producer and consumer of the software applications.

In this new world of application deployment/delivery, features are pushed to the end users within hours of being developed, rather than going through months of installation, deployment and/or customization. Antiquated software development processes like the waterfall process don?t exactly fit into this brave new world and are increasingly being replaced by the Agile software development processes. According to a Gartner report titled ?Predicts 2010: Agile and Cloud Impact Application Development Directions,? published in March 2010, 80% of software development projects will utilize Agile development methods. Agile development methods ? with their focus on frequent release and user feedback ? align well with the Cloud Computing paradigm, combining faster application delivery with collaborative, iterative development.

How Cloud Computing Benefits a Company

Cloud computing is a new wave of IT infrastructure that allows businesses to run their applications on a shared data center space. Unlike traditional licensed software, cloud technology brings in efficiency by eliminating the cumbersome processes related to software development, testing, installation and failovers. The major advantages of cloud computing include:

  • No hardware or software required for cloud services
  • Easy integration with other enterprise solutions
  • Fast deployment, coupled with less probability of failovers
  • Highly customizable environment
  • Optimum utilization of in-house IT resources

Capitalizing on these advantages, cloud computing has gradually become a rage among companies around the globe. According to Gartner, cloud computing will become the preferred vehicle for application delivery by 2015. Thus, the majority of CIOs are gearing up IT infrastructure to suit the cloud environment.
