Pleasing every stakeholder can be a problem in software development. Different people have different needs and desires. Some people may need certain functions while others want the application released as soon as possible. It’s important to realize that while it may not be possible to please everyone all the time, quality assurance is the best guarantee of happy stakeholders.
Bugwolf was recognized as a Super Connector - The Business Model of Generation Z at the Strategy & Innovation World Forum in Sydney.

Configuration management has been around since the 1950s, where it began by managing hardware development and later progressed to managing software development as well. It is the comprehensive documentation and updating of data concerning the hardware and software of a particular enterprise.
Rapid software development is driven by the ever escalating demand for new applications, which has increased the need to deploy high quality, bug free software quickly, in order to satisfy the market. This need for speed means that continuous deployment and integration is now an inevitable part of the development cycle. So, it is important to understand the nature of handoffs.
Bluemix is the Heroku of IBM. It has been built on Cloud Foundry and runs on top of Softlayer. Many of the world's well-known and successful applications and services have been built on SoftLayer. We were first introduced to IBM Bluemix in July last year. At the time it was still going through beta and coincided with the increasing market traction of Softlayer, which was acquired by IBM last year. We were intrigued but also excited about the possibility of a new channel for Bugwolf.
Bugwolf has been enjoying the benefits of working with IBM. As part of that we had the pleasure of participating on a panel they co-ordinated recently, and an outstanding white paper on startups and the cloud.
