Cloud app slow? Blame the app, not the cloud

Itrsquo;s 7:00 a.m., and yoursquo;re in the office early. Yoursquo;re hoping that nobody else is accessing the public cloud the company uses and that the inventory application will perform well for a change. However, even with just a handful of users on the cloud at that time of the morning, performance is still lackluster. The knee-jerk reaction is to blame the cloud provider.

The provider is, of course, the host of the application and data thus any performance problems fall on its shoulders, right? Wrong.Nine times out of ten Irsquo;m finding that performance issues are due to application design and the selection of enabling technology, rather than issues with the cloud infrastructure. Keep in mind that if yoursquo;re at capacity in a public cloud, you can simply add more. You can even scale on-demand as needed.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Impact of colocation on software development

What we call “colocation” used to be just “going to the office.” A group of people, in one place, working on one thing.But, with the rise of communication tools that enabled people to work from anywhere, the idea of a distributed workforce gained prominence.

This was due in part because it would cut costs and raise productivity, and because it provided a tool to accelerate recruiting when organizations struggled to hire exceptional people fast enough.We are starting to see the pendulum swing back in favor of colocation.

This happens as organizations discover that software engineering focused on innovation, product development or core business strategy is best developed, in terms of cost and outcomes, by an engineering team, in one place, working on one thing.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

With Build 2017 starting today in Seattle, it’s going to be an interesting week for developers working with Microsoft technologies. One area that’s going to get more attention this year is Office and Microsoft Graph.
