As we have been out getting feedback on our Orchestrated ALM strategy, we have had the opportunity to talk to some of the most astute commentators on what’s going on in enterprise application development today. We have collected some of the more insightful commentators’ and blogger’s reactions here, as well as links to their blog posts.
What they are saying might surprise you.
Adrian Bridgwater at Dr. Dobb’s writes that “delivering applications that power revenue generation or lower cost structures is the key to creating a compelling competitive advantage, especially given that virtualization and the cloud are commoditizing run-time environments.”
“Serena has built its orchestration approach around the application of process automation to the application delivery supply chain, potentially allowing software developers to work more effectively and reduce the challenges of siloed project teams working with multiple development tools and methodologies.
“Serena claims that its orchestrated ALM solution provides built-in traceability and auditability and also addresses another enterprise concern: the need to support the various tiers of today’s applications running on Linux, Windows, and mainframe.
“Orchestration is the key to enterprise-class application delivery success,” said David Hurwitz, SVP of worldwide marketing at Serena Software. “Our customers need to streamline workflows, leverage their valuable talent, and exploit their existing infrastructure. They’ve overwhelmingly told us that flowing work and insight to developers, analysts, executives, operations managers, and everyone else involved in the application lifecycle is the right approach. No ALM vendor has stepped up to this challenge, until now.”
“By creating a ‘software supply chain,’ companies can increase efficiencies around globally distributed software and provide an end-to-end, integrated approach to software development,” said Thomas Murphy, research director at Gartner.
