Modern Approaches to Infrastructure: On Premises or In the Clouds
Having networked with companies who had implemented Agile (primarily smaller ones) in the past several months, I asked them what their Agile challenges were. Several of these companies said that getting their infrastructure set up was a challenge while trying to get Agile established. This was an issue because Agile had instant demands on the infrastructure. I immediately had a flashback.
In 1998, I had a similar experience when implementing Scrum. The ScrumMaster had the developers coding in the first sprint (as is expected). However there was no real infrastructure or CM system to speak of and what was there was clunky at best. Coding was quite the mess and after the first release came out, the next release had a lot of regression. This all revolved around the lack of focus on infrastructure. Interestingly enough, even after 10 years, the infrastructure challenges persist.
This session will help Agile teams and, in fact, any company that is
struggling with their infrastructure, by high-lighting the modern
infrastructure options that are available today.
