Help Your Team Innovate Using the Cloud for Dev/Test & Production Workloads – Lunch & Learn
Audience: Business/Technical Decision Makers
Your ability to innovate for your company can easily be swallowed up by the sinkholes of time and money. It’s a vicious, reoccurring cycle; your team’s time rapidly disappears, and rarely do you have the resources to add team members. And to make it even more challenging, capital expenditure budgets are often just as tight for development and test hardware. These financial constraints make it incredibly difficult to innovate, and they keep you tied up with maintenance, often causing important projects to get delayed and sometimes cancelled.
Q: How do you get out of this sinkhole and move your company towards innovation?
A: The answer is simple, free up your team’s time and make the needed resources available to your team.
The way around these sinkholes has become incredibly easy and affordable, thanks to innovations in cloud platforms like Microsoft Azure (formerly Windows Azure). With Azure, your team can use a Windows Server with 8 processors and 14 GBs of memory, for as little as a penny per minute, and you only pay for the time you use. This same server on-premise would cost thousands of dollars, you would pay up-front, you’d wait for it to be delivered, you’d install and configure it, and then there’s not a way for you to only pay for consumption, because you invested lots of dollars up-front to buy the server.
At this lunch and learn, the cloud experts from Chicago-based responsiveX will walk through common sinkholes that are consuming your software development team’s productivity, and provide you with actionable solutions that you can take back to your team, to help you bypass these sinkholes and accelerate your software development efforts. The great news is with these proven solutions, everyone wins. Your company is excited that you’re delivering results faster, your development team is happier to accomplish more with less friction and resistance, which makes it easier for you to leave work happy every day with the feeling of accomplishment.
You will leave this lunch and learn:
- Able to communicate the value of using the Azure for Dev/Test and Production workloads
- With a proven process for identifying workloads in your company that are a great fit for Azure
- Knowing how to get started with Azure for Dev/Test and Production Workloads
- With real-world examples of these strategies in action
- With resources for learning more
Not all organizations are ready to take the plunge and run their production apps to the cloud, but simply using the cloud for development and testing, could give your team the boost they need to accelerate time-to-market with very minimal cost.
