ALM in the Cloud: Bringing Code to the Cloud and Back Again

The deployment destination for today's applications is going through its biggest transition since the rise of the application server. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and other cloud service offerings are putting pressure on stakeholders in the application lifecycle, forcing them to modernize both their skill sets and tool stacks. Kersten will describe the key cloud technology trends and demonstrate how the coming wave of cloud-friendly application lifecycle management (ALM) tools and practices will become the defining factor for productivity and ultimate success. Attendees will discover the new challenges developers face when deploying and debugging multi-tenanted applications on hosted infrastructures. Hear how continuous integration loops require testers to learn new tools that connect them directly to running applications. Participants will see what business and development managers must consider with an ever-growing set of shiny—but often siloed—tools that are wreaking havoc with governance. Attendees will leave with a new appreciation for and understanding of what it takes to develop mission-critical systems for the cloud.
