The Cloud gives rise to the notion of RTAD or Real Time Application Development which differs
from the traditional notion of RAD or Rapid Application Development in that there is no natural
latency between "developed" and "deployed." This can play havoc on organizations that don't fully
understand or embrace this concept. But it also insures that the benefits to enhancement are
immediate and global.
Another key feature of The Cloud is the proliferation of PaaS technologies, many of which enable
the decentralization of application development to the line of business, the Business Analyst or
even the end user outside of IT. This increases the rate of iterative change to the system and
necessitates better and better Change Management, Functional Design and overall Strategy.
Again, experience, expertise and wisdom are essential so choosing good partners is key.
