Joining technology leaders like IBM, Symantec, Rackspace, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin, Datastream Connexion has become a member of the Cloud Standards Customer Council.

Security is consistently highlighted as one of the top inhibitors to the adoption of cloud computing and an area of great interest to customers. The new CSCC security working group will focus on developing high priority use cases for cloud security that reflect the issues and pain points customers are experiencing in various cloud deployment models (private, public and hybrid). A wide range of security issues including identity management, authorization, auditing, availability, data protection and privacy will be considered.

We look forward to a strong working relationship with these organizations as we start to define best practices for the cloud.

Choosing a vendor to help augment your development processes is a difficult one.

Seapine, the leader in ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) solutions has a terrific suite of products that covers our entire development cycle from initiation to release.   With an entire integrated suite, we have unprecedented visibility into all areas of our development while achieving federal compliance and best practices at the same time.

More importantly, Seapine's tool set flexibility allowed us to leverage all the requirements of compliance we need, and still go fully Agile!   It has been a terrific win-win scenario for us on multiple fronts.

To help launch our Agile practices, we reached out to Seapine's Agile Services group and participated in their training program.  Below, find a white paper discussing the critical success that resulted from participation in this program.
