Many electrons have been consumed talking about the business and technical benefits of moving to the cloud. At Spanning, we try to apply those same lessons to our daily work in order to produce products at a pace that was not even feasible back in the packaged apps days. This post discusses how we can quickly make imperfect decisions now, that allow us to move forward, learn a little more, then re-evaluate the next set of issues with more context. This is the same model that companies use when they move to the cloud... only pay for the services that you need now.
Need to make sure your cloud is up and running? If you like pretty charts of that uptime, Nimsoft has got you covered. The company also has a not quite as pretty Nimsoft Cloud Monitor API that allows developers to integrate the tools for monitoring cloud performance into their applications.
