Smooth BPM The Silver Lining Of Cloud Computing Businesses rely on the implementation of processes. Cloud-based software provides a way for easy management and alleviates issues companies face trying to improve these processes, particularly when it comes to prototyping and modeling. A question many businesses are trying to address is: How can cloud ensure smooth Business Process Management? The speed of getting started is a huge benefit of bringing cloud technology to BPM.

PaaS and IaaS: Rising Champions of Cloud Computing In the cloud conversation, Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) appear much less than the famed Software as a Service (SaaS). This is not surprising when you consider that a world already populated with built platforms and infrastructure has but to operate on them. However, offering Platforms and Infrastructure through the cloud has been a boon to the software development field, especially with the recently growing push toward increased collaboration between developers and admins, commonly referred to as Development Operations (DevOps). Distinctions and Utilization Though somewhat easy
Wall Of Confusion And The DevOps Tea Party As an I.T management model that expands on the Agile Development framework, DevOps has seen much increase in hype in the last two years. In contrast to how Social Media and the Web 2.0 concept defined content generation and content consumption, the collective approach to I.T operations and software development systems looked to enhance the systems based approach to building and operating software systems. The critical acclaim that DevOps received beyond its initial steps were further endorsed by movements like DevOps Days and DevOps Meetups, with each of these movements consistently gaining
