Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
Mark Tomlinson shared an emerging industry practice with me. Customers are setting up incremental environments. The environments are incremental steps from a developer environment to production. Incremental Environments
There's no strict rule for how many of each type of environment, and the most sohpisticated setup has multiple physical environments/labs which could be used for any of each purpose. The beauty of this approach is that instead of having a great big wall to throw your application over, it's a series of incremental hurdles. Each hurdle represents increasing requirements and constraints. This approach is also great for Centers of Excellence. A Center of Excellence team can build the environment to reflect and codify their practices. The Center of Excellence team can also harvest and share the lessons learned to help teams over each incremental step.
