Journey to cloud

Transforming a sizeable development organization from “classic” development practices to Agile cloud development is something I talk about a lot.  Bhavik Shah, who used to work on our team, left Microsoft to go to business school and now works a Mckinsey, recently wrote an article on that transformation process.  Buck Hodges, one of our Engineering Directors worked with Bhavik and others on it.

It’s a nice read: https://tmt.mckinsey.com/

The link is a link to the Mckinsey home page – I don’t have a perma-link to the article.  It’s on the front page as I write this.  The article is titled “From box to cloud: An approach for software development executives”

*** Update Jan 22 ***

I now have a link from Mckinsey that has a copy of the report with no registration requirements.  Go to: http://www.mckinsey.com/client_service/high_tech/latest_thinking.  Right now this article is the top article but I assume it will drop down the list over time.  You can search for “From box to cloud: An approach for software development executives” to find it.

 

A big thank you to Mckinsey for making this available!
