State of the Industry: Survey Reveals Barriers and Opp for Development and Testing in the Cloud

Companies are using their testing and development (Test/Dev) infrastructures more and more as a proving ground for implementing shared infrastructure and private cloud environments, according to our recent survey of senior IT managers at North American firms. Conducted in mid-to-late 2009 on behalf of Platform Computing, Inc., the survey revealed that the top challenge of running Test/Dev environments is the need to manage virtual and physical resources separately, with most respondents also indicating that virtualization on its own does not address their most important Test/Dev infrastructure challenges. The Taneja Group surveyed 83 senior IT managers across the banking, government, manufacturing, telecommunications, software, health and pharmaceutical industries. We examined current challenges of managing Test/Dev environments, as well as the opportunities for server virtualization and cloud computing solutions to address those problems.
