Industry research shows that cloud development is quickly working its way into the overall enterprise IT mix. For instance, a 2011 study conducted by Saugatuck Technology indicated that "75 percent of all companies will be doing some of their development in the cloud in 2012, and an average of 50 percent of new software deployments worldwide will be made in the cloud by the end of 2014."
Based on its years of experience and patterns of customer success, CollabNet has outlined a blueprint containing five practical steps to guide organizations on their path to Enterprise Cloud Development as they adopt hybrid cloud IT into the application development and deployment lifecycle. The steps include: 1) embrace the cloud for centralizing access and visibility to tools and processes; 2) create a robust coding community to encourage reuse; 3) codify development processes by standardizing tools, workflows and processes; 4) automate DevOps practices; and 5) take a hybrid approach by leveraging public and on-premise private cloud resources in a secure, compliant and optimal way.
To deliver customer and industry value, CollabNet’s Enterprise Cloud Development strategy is strengthened by three new product offerings:
- The launch of CloudForge: CollabNet’s next-generation dPaaS is built from the previously acquired Codesion® public cloud hosting platform, and meets the needs of professional teams throughout the entire organization. It helps developers and IT managers instantly develop and deploy software using a hybrid mix of tools, application frameworks and deployment clouds – all with enterprise security and compliance in place.
- Standardizing Enterprise Cloud Development for the industry: CloudForge adds unique capabilities for its users, and creates new dPaaS business opportunities for third-parties through its new App Center. By offering complimentary, best-of-breed development and deployment services, including Cloud Foundry and SOASTA, users gain integrated functionality and platform partners can directly access CollabNet’s more than 10,000 customers. It also helps CollabNet rapidly expand its menu of services offered within the CloudForge user interface.
- ALM and SCM hybrid cloud services: Initially, CloudForge Cloud Services will be available to customers with on-premise deployments of Subversion Edge and TeamForge. A new Subversion Edge CloudBackup service now provides seamless Subversion data archiving, redundancy and migration capabilities for any on-premise user of Subversion Edge or TeamForge, without leaving their own desktop environment. Later in the year, additional hybrid cloud services will be available in TeamForge and Subversion Edge, such as elastic server provisioning for build, test and deployment.
"Software development is changing, due in part to the growth of cloud computing. Smaller teams are taking the lead with cloud-based development, and in turn proving value and gaining the attention of executives responsible for the bottom-line," said Ben Kepes, principal at research firm Diversity Analysis. "As enterprise IT looks to cloud development, offerings such as CollabNet’s, that provide the foundation for companies to embrace the cloud in a manner that integrates into and extends existing development processes, will be seen as the best way of ensuring efficiency and effectiveness."
