Business Challenges for Cloud Engineering 101
– The challenges that initially sparked software and technology companies to move to an outsource model for product development, engineering, testing, and support have grown exponentially with the advent of SaaS and Cloud technology. Today’s Cloud & SaaS applications bring forward completely new and evolving challenges. Finding the right skill sets and engineering talent to architect new products or migrate existing products for SaaS, Cloud or Mobile applications.
SaaS and Cloud technology opens up entirely new challenges. At Northforge, questions and challenges like:
- How we can ensure our customers’ data is secure and scalable if they are on the public cloud or should we host them in-house? is a consideration many traditional technology companies aren’t adept at answering.
- Integrating premise-based applications to SaaS applications in the Cloud is another significant challenge. Mobility offers huge innovation for companies but also huge challenges.
The challenge of finding and recruiting the technology talent to build solutions that can support the new SaaS/Cloud reality is a difficult one to solve without considering leveraging the talent and expertise of the Northforge Innovations engineering team.
