Why cloud computing is best for Agile Software Development

Companies must be more innovative than ever before in order to compete with the best. However, innovation entails producing better software that is more responsive to new trends than ever before. Enterprises are increasingly adopting Agile techniques to tackle the issue of creating useful software. Agile is a fast, iterative technique that allows you to create code changes quickly and send them out for review.

To reap the benefits of agile methodology, development teams require dynamic, elastic, automated, and self-service infrastructures due to large teams, financial constraints, and unpredictable demands. Many businesses are turning to the cloud to extend and deepen their agile development capabilities.

Here are a few reasons why cloud computing is best for Agile Software Development.

Multiple servers

When deploying physical servers, a developer is limited to using only one server for development, staging, and production, resulting in slower operations. Developers working in the cloud have unrestricted access to servers, virtual servers, and cloud instances, which allows them to work faster. They can work regardless of whether or not actual servers are present.

Ability to increase the pace with which continuous integration

Builds and automated testing take a long time in the agile development process. It’s a lengthy process that entails repairing test failures and repeating the process until the build passes. In cloud computing, the availability of a large number of virtual computers speeds up continuous integration and delivery.

It allows developers to experiment and be innovative.

With the help of cloud computing, developers have a lot of room to create and experiment. For example, if they find a feature appealing, they may quickly establish a development instance, write it, and test it. Because they have infinite server access in the cloud, they don’t have to wait for the next build or be concerned about limiting server availability.

It enables code branching and merging.

During code refactoring efforts, existing releases may require small upgrades before being utilized in production while a significant rewrite is underway. In all of these scenarios, code branching is required. The process of juggling many versions of development builds is known as code branching and merging. By using cloud infrastructure, you can avoid buying or renting additional physical servers for temporary infrastructure needs.

Overall project quality control.

The best of both worlds is combined when agile methodology and cloud computing are used together. Cloud platforms can help enterprises achieve iterative software releases while also allowing them to check quality standards and receive user feedback on a regular basis.

As a result, the cloud complements and reinforces Agile development approaches by enhancing corporate agility, reducing time-to-market, increasing productivity, producing high-quality code, and lowering costs.
