Making Agile Work

Double Wake-up

with one comment

Computer Associates and Salesforce made the following announcement a couple of weeks ago:

SAN FRANCISCO – Salesforce.com Dreamforce Conference – November 19, 2009 – CA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CA), the leader in Enterprise IT Management, and salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM), the enterprise cloud computing company, today announced they have partnered to deliver agile development management in the cloud on the Force.com platform. Through the alliance, CA and salesforce.com intend to introduce CA Agile Planner on Force.com to help small businesses and enterprises alike accelerate development timelines while gaining control and visibility over 100 percent of their development initiatives. The intended result will be increased innovation and reduced time-to-market.

Following an e-conversation on the subject with colleague and friend Annie Shum, I would characterize this announcement as a Double Wake-up:

  • To the premise of Agile methods; and,
  • To the premise of Cloud Computing

How appropriate it is that Annie has recently posted in this blog on the two threads coming together – Cloud Computing: Agile Deployment for Agile QA Testing.
