Dev/Test Solutions: speed up development and deployment
Organisations looking to improve the quality of the business applications they develop and deploy are discovering that virtualisation is an elegant way of accelerating their software development and testing.
Being able to rapidly develop and deploy commercial-grade software is a key competitive advantage for many organisations. Yet many are scarred by multiple failures of business-critical applications and struggle to achieve optimum levels of speed and reliability.
As many such organisations are discovering, the answer is to support development and test teams with robust solutions that are proven to accelerate development and deployment while delivering higher quality.
By providing IT with a powerful suite of internal development solutions and external hosted services, VMware makes supporting the extremely demanding self-provisioning and release management needs of dev/test teams easy, for example, enabling developers, testers and trainers to provision their own machines through a self-service portal, choosing from a library of pre-configured machines.
- Shorten development cycles
- Improve bug tracking and resolution
- Automatically update production systems
