Wildfires are a reality that can strike at any moment. The Camp Fire that swept through the town of Paradise, CA in 2018 took a terrible toll on its residents, destroying more than 80% of their homes. Houses that survived did so because their owners had been proactive in protecting their property. They prepared well in advance by doing things like planting fire-resistant hardwood trees or covering vents with mesh screens to prevent smoldering material from getting in.

Companies should approach the maintenance of their software applications in the same way. Just like a house, software applications represent substantial investments that would result in disaster if significantly damaged. If your app lives in Microsoft Azure, you can use a service provided called Azure Site Recovery (ASR). This article provides an overview of how ASR works to help minimize downtime and ensure business continuity in the event of a disaster.

Businesses are complicated - they have intricate processes, are continually evolving, and need to be scalable. For companies that rely on software as a core component of the business, that complexity is typically reflected in their business-critical software applications.

One strategy that maximizes value and minimizes software complexity is using a business rules engine that encapsulates business-specific logic and keeps it separate from the rest of the application code. Here is more information about what a business rules engine is and how it can benefit your business.

Testing has always been an important stage of the software development lifecycle. Teams that do it well clearly understand the benefits and are often the strongest advocates for the practice. Unit tests should be a given in any web application’s code base. Automated functional testing takes this a step further and allows application testing on the user-interface level, which adds another layer of protection that helps catch mistakes before they reach production.

In this article, you’ll learn more about how cloud-based automation testing tools help software development teams reduce costs, create higher code quality, and increase velocity so they can move forward quickly.

AWS Features That Make Apps More Cloud Native After Lift and Shift

 Craig Kaneshiro  Oct 31, 2018 8:30:00 AM  0 Comments

Lift and shift is a common cloud migration strategy that involves recreating the on-premise hosting infrastructure in the cloud while making minimal application changes. The benefit of this strategy is that it’s less invasive to the application code, and the hosting environment maintains a level of familiarity, which can be beneficial for teams working in the cloud for the first time. Once an application is stabilized in the cloud using the lift and shift strategy, the real fun can begin - taking advantage of cloud native features.
