Skytap Cloud Thought Leaders to Speak at Upcoming Fall Technology Events

Cloud computing and software development & test experts to speak and exhibit at Camp IT, STARWEST and Better Software Conference East

SEATTLE, Sept. 21 — Skytap, Inc., the leading provider of self-service cloud automation solutions, today announced participation at a number of cloud computing and software development and test events, including Camp IT, STARWEST, Better Software East, and Gartner's Application Architecture Development and Integration Summit. At these events, Skytap executives will provide live demonstrations of Skytap Cloud, present on hybrid and public clouds, and offer best practices for agile development and testing.

Camp IT: Cloud Computing Strategies

What: Hybrid Cloud: How to Build and Integrate the Best of Both Worlds

When: Mon., Sept. 24 at 10:30-11:30 a.m. CT

Where: Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, IL

Who: Brett Goodwin, vice president of marketing & business development, Skytap

Description: After setting your cloud strategy, how do you go about building your cloud? What are the benefits of a hybrid cloud approach? This session will discuss how to plan, design, deliver, and optimize a responsible, reliable, and mission-critical enterprise cloud with the use of both public and private IT services. One of the most beneficial aspects of a hybrid cloud approach is that IT can easily extend their existing on-premise infrastructure with a secure, managed cloud computing service that is ideal for specific functional groups and IT workloads.


What: Cloud-Enabled Software Testing: Putting the Agile into the Infrastructure

When: Wed., Oct. 3 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. PT

Where: Disneyland Hotel, Anaheim, CA, Booth #15

Who: Nate Odell, director of marketing, Skytap

Description: Cloud computing can radically change the way users build, test, and deploy software. In this session, attendees will gain knowledge on how to achieve results with the latest in agile methods, technologies, and tools – such as 75 percent faster development and testing cycles. Session attendees will also learn which application workloads are ideal for the cloud model and how to enable true Agile development and DevOps practices to deliver better software faster. They will be provided with a wealth of ideas to enhance development and testing productivity and boost software quality.

Better Software Conference East

What: Cloud Computing: Powering the Future of Development and Testing

When: Wed., Nov. 7 from 3:45-4:45 p.m. ET

Where: Rosen Shingle Creek, Orlando, FL, Booth #13

Who: Brian White, vice president of products, Skytap

Description: Developers and testers are under constant pressure to operate more efficiently, cut costs, and deliver on time. Without access to scalable, flexible, and cost-effective computing resources, these challenges are magnified. This session will discuss how to create scalable development and test environments in the cloud, and share best practices for reducing cycle time and decreasing project costs. Attendees will learn how scalable, cloud-based data centers can run software without complicated re-writes; enable rapid defect resolution with snapshots and clones; and provide global collaboration for multiple product and release teams. Brian will present a case study of Cushman & Wakefield, the world's largest privately held real estate services firm, which struggled with an on-premises development and testing environment. By moving its dev/test infrastructure to the cloud, they reduced provisioning time from days to minutes, doubled the number of projects supported within four months, and improved collaboration among dispersed teams.

Gartner Application Architecture Development and Integration Summit

When: Nov. 27-29

Where: Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, NV, Booth #TBD

Description: The Gartner Application Architecture Development and Integration Summit will cover the latest issues facing application professionals today, including understanding the real business value of cloud computing. Solution leaders and IT professionals will come together to share their knowledge and experience on when, why, and how to adopt cloud and agile methodology to make their application development more productive. While at the show, be sure to stop by the Skytap booth for a demonstration of Skytap Cloud technology – designed for complex computing environments such as application development and testing.
