CM Crossroads' 7th Annual ALM Expo Focuses on Agile, ALM and Cloud

Online Developer Conference Spotlights the Three Keystone Disciplines That Development Organizations Must Address to Be Successful

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  CM Crossroads, the leading online information center for Agile, Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), and Cloud Driven Development, announced today the launch of ALM Expo 2010. This year's conference takes place October 26-28 and devotes each of the three days to one of the Keystone pillars of success for software development: Agile, ALM and Cloud.

According to Patrick Egan, Founder of CM Crossroads and the Agile Journal, "Agile, ALM and Cloud Driven Development are the keys to success for any organization because without all three you fail. Software development without some levels of agility lacks the speed of delivery that customers demand. Also, with the current growth of most applications, development teams face major hurdles in scalability without the use of cloud based resources throughout the development process. And most importantly, without a strong underlying lifecycle management solution no development organization can achieve the reliability and repeatability required to compete in today's market."

Now in its 7th year, ALM Expo 2010 takes place October 26-28 and includes 15 hours of online discussions on a wide range of topics. Each day of the conference begins at 9 a.m. Pacific time with a keynote presentation. Conference recordings will be available on-demand for at least 6 months following the event.

Day 1 -- ALM Essentials -- Keynote with Uttam Narsu (Former Forrester/Giga Analyst)
Day 2 -- Agile Goes Mainstream -- Keynote with Johanna Rothman
Day 3 -- Cloud Driven Development -- Keynote Panel with Rock Rocaberte

WHAT: ALM Expo 2010 -- Agile ALM and Cloud Driven Development

WHEN: October 26-28, 2010 -- 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Pacific
