Who is servin' up the hottest Mobile/Cloud/Custom app solutions?

Serving tray.pngOk, so I just returned from the 2013 Gartner AADI ( #GartnerAADI) conference.  It's a veritable festival of all things apps dev, testing, integration and design.  Our HP teams featured our HP Software rocket scientists showcasing our ALM, QC, Agile Manager tools as well as a host of additional out-of-this-world tools and methodologies.  From our Enterprise Services teams we had subject matter experts from our Testing and Quality Assurance team (our very own Alan Forand) as speakers at the conference this year!  Delivering an excellent seminar on Agile Development and Testing, Alan Forand gave the packed audience some key insights in to the experiences HP teams have gained working clients who are moving to Agile Development, teams that are still exploring Agile and teams that have a foot in both worlds (waterfall and agile).


From our Mobile Services teams our very own Perminder Sohal took part in a CIO session where CIO and vendors like HP discussed the move to mobile, planning and experience gained by companies already "mobile" and those reviewing how mobility will affect thier business future.


To get a feel for the conference go here: Gartner AADI.  If you're a regular Gartner attendee you should be able to browse all the recent presentation including Alan Forand's speaking engagement.  Our teams will be releasing more insights and experiences from this conference so stay tuned for more on the growth of HP Applications Development Services, Mobility and Testing!


As always, you can find out more about our services here: HP Application Development Services, and HP Testing and Quality Assurance Services.
