Waterfall Still Going Strong - But Is It Time for a Hybrid Approach? The nature of the technology business is forward-thinking. It focuses on the future and what's coming next. Innovations and creativity in our world of software development strive to improve the status quo and increase customer satisfaction through speed and increased connectivity. Yet, while it's exciting to see enterprises embrace new ways of thinking and advance their processes with cutting edge technology, it rarely happens rapidly or even simultaneously across all industries.

And, as it turns out, the IoT is a rather big stone and it's making a large splash. The IoT revolution is necessitating enormous changes to companies who want to play in this bra... (more)

Managers Don’t Have to Hate Agile | @CloudExpo #IoT #Agile #DevOps

Managers Don’t Have to Hate Agile Earlier this year Forbes published an article titled "Why Do Managers Hate Agile?"

It's like Men are From Mars and Women are from Venus, only we're talking about the IT world and management and developers, instead of men and women. The article caught my attention for the obvious reason that CollabNet sells products and services to help support Agile development efforts, sparking the question, "Why would manager...
