Actually a "managed" cloud is not so lonely is it? But is it enough to bring companies into adopting the cloud computing model of IT delivery if they still harbour misgivings about cloud security, cloud data privacy issues and cloud robustness in all its many forms? Will the in-house developer...

ALM, Developer, Serena

Serena Software's latest attempt to tune us into "orchestrated" Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) is built around the proposition that the business needs a clearer single view of the entire application stack.

Bucharest, Romania is the location for the 2011 Yahoo! Open Hack day. This is the fourteenth event of its kind and somewhere around 300 developers have descended on the city to hack up & mash up, eat pizza and cram as many carbonated drinks down as them as they physically can inside 24...
