What’s new in the Cloud ? This time under the skyline of the Gaudi city

 

BarcelonaIT professionals in EMEA, we’ve reached this time of the year, right before the holidays season, when we gather to discuss the latest changes in the landscape of Software IT.

 

CIOs, VP of apps, development and testing teams, architects, engineers, PMOs or ... software delivery teams, we are looking forward to seeing you again at the Guadi city, in less than two months. Book your travel and stack up your business cards.

 

What we’ve seen since we’ve met this time a year ago at HP Discover Frankfurt is that worldwide IT spending is constantly growing. According to Gartner it will sum up to a total of $3.7 trillion in 2013, around 5 percent growth in local US currency in 2012 and  2014 will show even a greater growth of 6.2 percent based on Forrester research.

 

SaaS, cloud, data driven apps and mobile will drive the growth. What does it mean to us???

 

One of the most significant impacts is around the dramatic increase in automation. One of the articles I recently read,  had this bold phrase saying that "cloud is automation on steroids", well true it is, with the positive change that there are no negative side effects!

 

Automation is key in the modern software world. Automation of testing, deployment, provisioning, recovering, upgrading, monetizing and analytics. Organizations must scale their processes in order to compete in the new landscape where we deploy changes 14 times a day in order to continuously improve our software. In order to scale and shorten delivery without scarifying quality we must increase automation. It’s not only about increasing the amount of automation that is done today in the IT organization. That, on its own, won’t be enough. It also means that we need to expand automation to cover completely new areas, add skills and capabilities to enable this scalability.
