The Importance of Corporate Virtual Environments for Your Development Team

Modern business requires modern solutions. Whenever a business process is updated, companies pay special attention, especially when it concerns known productivity issues or workarounds.
GPS (global positioning systems), for example, started as a military technology. Once it became available for public use, transportation companies like Federal Express, TomTom, and Garmin, quickly implemented it. Then came Uber, which disrupted the ride-sharing industry when it began using GPS to create what is essentially a taxi service, without taxis.
Likewise, today’s corporate learning environments have been re-energized using technology. Processes like rote memorization, slideshows, and documentation pale in comparison to the interactive learning environments enabled through modern technology.
The Value of Corporate Virtual Environments
Currently, there is a big push to adopt augmented reality (AR), where digital objects appear in view, and virtual reality (VR), where complete and interactive environments are entirely digital.
Research has shown that virtual reality is just as real to humans as physical reality. Learning through VR is no different than hands-on training that takes place in real life.

Always Use Virtual Testing Environments for Software Testing/Deployment
Virtual environments are becoming more common for software testing and deployment. They simplify standard business processes into a completely digital space, saving developers time and money otherwise spent on finding and purchasing compatible hardware. With a virtual testing environment, employees can simply log in to a web portal, andare ready to go.
Because of these significant savings—as well as the increased flexibility that comes with a cloud-based approach—businesses of all sizes are gravitating more and more toward virtual environments.
What Makes an Effective Virtual Testing Environment?
Productive virtual testing environments sandbox your development environment, making them the ideal fail-safe environment for introducing breaking changes in your code. You can test that code within various simulated operating systems and software—all without finding, purchasing, or setting up compatible systems.
Virtual environments even include augmented and virtual reality applications development.

Benefits of the Self-Service Application Environment
Self-service application environments are perfect for corporations that need more customization than a generic developer profile suggests.
Productivity increases, workflows become more streamlined based on corporate mandates, and employees work faster and more efficiently on their assigned tasks.
Productive employees in self-service application environments are more capable than the average user due to a smaller learning curve and prior learning and education.
The Value of Dev Environments in the Cloud
The cloud is a game-changer for corporate environments. Physical hardware and resources have been all but replaced by cloud architecture and infrastructure. As an example, using cloud-based elasticity to manage server loads allows companies to trim and monitor budgets without affecting productivity.
If you implement all IT resources physically (the old-fashioned way), you will need to invest in more expensive systems, which will take up much more office space and require teams of employees to use.
With the cloud, you can access resources using just your smartphone.
The Advantages of Cloud Dev Environments and Cloud-Based Environments
Cloud dev environments, and cloud-based environments in general, provide employees and corporate management with quicker access to more resources—without the expected financial costs. Cloud-based environments are also much more forgiving to developer errors or software errors, which are inevitable.
Even minor software patches can break or “bug out” when being tested and deployed. Virtual environments, from cloud-based development environments to VR apps, can have a profoundly positive effect on corporate virtualization of assets and training.
From the Chief Technology Officer to the junior developer, all employees can benefit from virtualization, which can be more effective than outdated techniques while offering a buffer in case of human error.
