June 12, 2012

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

    WHO:     Mik Kersten
             CEO and founder of Tasktop Technologies

              Kersten is the CEO of Tasktop technologies and creator of
              products that have been transforming application
              development and lifecycle management tools, including
              Eclipse Mylyn, Tasktop Dev, Tasktop Sync, and partner
              products including SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) and
              Code2Cloud.  He also is involved in open source community
              and standards efforts, and serves as a member of the
              Eclipse Foundation Board of Directors and the Open
              Services for Lifecycle (OSLC) Steering Committee.

    WHAT:     ALM in the Cloud: Bringing Code to the Cloud and Back

              The deployment destination for today's applications is
              going through its biggest transition since the rise of
              the application server. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
              and other cloud service offerings are putting pressure on
              stakeholders in the application lifecycle, forcing them
              to modernize both their skill sets and tool stacks.
              Kersten will describe the key cloud technology trends and
              demonstrate how the coming wave of cloud-friendly
              application lifecycle management (ALM) tools and
              practices will become the defining factor for
              productivity and ultimate success. Attendees will
              discover the new challenges developers face when
              deploying and debugging multi-tenanted applications on
              hosted infrastructures. Hear how continuous integration
              loops require testers to learn new tools that connect
              them directly to running applications. Participants will
              see what business and development managers must consider
              with an ever-growing set of shiny-but often siloed-
              tools that are wreaking havoc with governance. Attendees
              will leave with a new appreciation for and understanding
              of what it takes to develop mission-critical systems for
              the cloud.
