How has the acceptance and adoption of the cloud
model influenced your development cycle and process?
The acceptance of cloud computing has influenced us more on an operational level than a product or service level. If it’s not our core business we would rather put it in the cloud than have it in house. Items like email, data storage, ticket system, development environment, etc all reside in the cloud. I don’t want to waste resources maintaining, upgrading and repairing these items, it’s not our core business. Cloud computing allows us to focus on why we are in business and what we do well and remove the distraction of non-revenue generating tasks.
