Cloud computing: more about agile development than cost

Cloud computing: more about agile development than cost

 

Cloud computing might turn out to be a cost-saver, but that's almost beside the point.

Focusing chiefly on the potential for cost savings -- real or imagined -- can overshadow the transformative potential for faster, more agile development and furthering the business objectives of the enterprise, a panel of cloud experts recently observed.

"Putting too much emphasis on just the cost takes away a lot that cloud has to offer," Amit Khanna, vice president and global head of cloud practice at Virtusa, an IT consultancy, said in an online discussion hosted by Amazon's AWS division.

John Rymer, vice president and principal analyst at the research group Forrester, urges firms working on a cloud platform to push the pace of applications development, noting that some are even using their customers as the initial testers of a "minimum viable product."

"People are using cloud-based environments to test ideas in days,".

"The bottom line here is ... cloud is the next platform," Rymer says. "We don't get a lot of questions from clients anymore about whether or not they're going to go to public clouds. It's really how do we get there."
