Re: Rush to Market
That's the $million dollar question Shane! I believe mobile app requires much closer collaboration across teams (especially development and operations). In the past, both groups have been driven by opposing goals - dev by change, and operations by stability. Now, the frenetic pace of mobile development means that businesses can't wait to test apps when the code actually comes "over the wall" to the operations team. Therefore testing, performance, monitoring and security must be incorporated much earlier in the development lifecycle -- even to the point of incoporating them in the app itself - beacuse not every condition can be anticipated. The key then becomes ensuring fails/bug conditions are captured and analyzed so thet dev can quickly invorprate enhancements. For traditional shops, this "shift left" development approach will require re-skilling and new tools - plus of course what's often the most difficult - cultural change.
