Electric Cloud to Host 'Continuous Delivery for Financial Services' Event in London with Co-Author and Continuous Delivery Expert David Farley

Electric Cloud, the leader for accelerating Continuous Delivery success, today announced it is hosting a half-day event featuring David Farley, co-author of the defining book, "Continuous Delivery," in London on Tuesday, May 13, 2014. The 'Continuous Delivery for Financial Services' event will outline specific approaches and use-case-based benefits of the Continuous Delivery software deployment methodology that helps leading banks, insurance firms and investment houses drive predictable and fast application updates to customers. The event, targeted to software executives and CIOs, will be held at the Tower Bridge and is open to qualified IT executives.

"To stay ahead of the competition software is increasingly a critical differentiating factor for financial services firms, and Continuous Delivery provides a predictable way to release quality software at a pace that always meets business needs," said Steve Brodie, CEO of Electric Cloud. "Partnering with David Farley and our London-based customers, we have a targeted set of presentations that address the unique challenges financial services companies face when embracing modern software delivery practices like Continuous Delivery."

This event is designed for IT executives who share a common interest in delivering quality software faster and more cost-effectively. Often referred to as the "new Agile," Continuous Delivery provides transformational benefits that drive strategic value through more predictable, fast and quality software releases. It automates the software delivery process and directly addresses the quality, reliability and risk issues that arise from the drive to release software faster than ever before. Continuous Delivery helps organizations embrace and manage the increasing pace of change, and empowers software teams to respond to a range of business issues by shipping applications quickly — when the business needs it.

Farley, co-author of "Continuous Delivery," will present a keynote on how to build a foundation for a rapid, reliable, low-risk delivery process that includes a "deployment pipeline" and an automated process for managing all software changes — from check-in to release. He also will outline the dynamics and basis for the proper "ecosystem" needed to support Continuous Delivery, from infrastructure, data and configuration management to governance.

"Many CIOs believe that adopting Continuous Delivery is not possible due to compliance and audit issues," said Farley. "In fact, this is not the case at all. This event will demonstrate, through real-life case studies, how Continuous Delivery done properly puts the decision of when to release software back in the hands of the business — and the visibility to pass audits and adhere to government regulations."
