Perforce Software suggère cinq conseils de nettoyage de printemps à l’attention des équipes de développement

Le leader de la gestion des versions de type Entreprise dévoile les meilleures pratiques permettant de maintenir la coordination entre les équipes de développement

WOKINGHAM, Royaume-Uni, (17 avril 2013) — Perforce Software vient de dévoiler cinq conseils destinés aux équipes logicielles et visant à les aider à mieux gérer leurs environnements de développement avec l'arrivée du printemps. Ces recommandations ont pour but de maintenir des codebases bien organisés et d'améliorer les processus de développement.

« Le printemps correspond à la période où les projets logiciels commencent à s'accélérer. Mais si les jours sont plus longs, il n'en est pas de même des cycles de livraison, qui ne sont pas allongés, » a expliqué Randy DeFauw, Chef de produit senior chez Perforce. « Avec un codebase bien maintenu et bien géré, les entreprises peuvent appréhender cette phase de hausse d'activité avec sérénité et lancer leurs nombreux projets variés l'esprit tranquille. »

Cinq conseils de Perforce pour le nettoyage de printemps de vos codebases :

  1. Utiliser un outil pour conserver une trace de tout ce qu'il se passe : les études sur le sujet montrent qu'une mauvaise communication compromet l'efficacité des livraisons, et que cet obstacle est bien plus marqué au sein des équipes distribuées. Pour surmonter cette difficulté, assurez-vous que tous les collaborateurs savent où trouver les informations et contenus de projets importants.

  2. Le courrier électronique est, tout au plus, un rappel incitant à regarder ailleurs : veillez à stocker la documentation, les instructions de déploiement et les récentes informations délicates relatives à la mise à niveau de la base de données à un emplacement sûr. (Remarque : les pièces jointes ne constituent pas un emplacement sûr.) Les connaissances partagées lors des conversations sont tout aussi importantes ; conservez-les avec le code pour éviter d'avoir à fouiller dans les dossiers Outlook à 3h du matin.

  3. Prévoir un plan de croissance : si votre stratégie n'est pas adaptée, vous courez à l'échec. Le système de déploiement « maison » développé l'automne dernier pour pousser une application Web dans Azure ne fonctionnera pas correctement maintenant qu'il prend en charge plusieurs milliers d'utilisateurs simultanés dans un système à cinq niveaux.

  4. La virtualisation simplifie le processus des publications de mise à jour : vous avez toujours rêvé d'appliquer de véritables contrôles en amont sur chaque commit ? Ou d'unifier cinq canaux de conception dans une seule structure afin de réduire les difficultés de dépendances ? Les outils IC modernes délivrent les performances requises en exploitant les fermes de virtualisation.

  5. Gérer les branches de déploiement comme les branches de code : la fusion de branches doit suivre une stratégie. Après tout, les modifications apportées à une branche logicielle ne se font pas au hasard. Tous les environnements de déploiement ne sont pas identiques. Dès lors, les stratégies de branchement pour les données de déploiement doivent prendre en considération les différences au niveau de la divergence, de la sécurité et de la fusion sélective des fonctionnalités.

Depuis plus de 10 ans, Perforce répond aux besoins des environnements de développement les plus exigeants au monde, permettant à des milliers d'entreprises de gérer et d'étendre leurs codebases. Outre la gestion du code source, les produits Perforce offrent aux équipes la possibilité de collaborer sur n'importe quel type de contenu numérique, qu'il s'agisse de documents, de ressources multimédias, de feuilles de calcul, d'images ou autres.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
