John McDonald, CEO of CloudOne is a pioneer in making Rational products available via a SaaS model. CloudOne now works with companies of all sizes and shapes: from systems development to enterprise modernization to traditional development, device management and analytics.
He points out that we are seeing a diversity in where software is going: it is increasingly becoming part of hardware, whether that be heavy equipment or components in automotive devices.
On the advantages of cloud-based development, beyond the financial aspect he also points to the power of elasticity of resource based on the needs of the development lifecycle and the way in which cloud enables global collaboration on development.
A diversity of skills is now essential for developers coming into the field. John talks about a ‘renaissance approach’ where developers need to know a number of languages as well have an understanding of the human component and different device platforms.
