Face to face in the news:
2015 - Heroku launches application development platform for Enterprise. Beware Force.com
Heroku, the Salesforce-owned, application development and hosting platform, announced a new product line called Heroku Enterprise. It’s geared for big companies that want to develop the kind of modern applications seen at startups while providing the type of features that many large enterprises want, including security features and access control. Essentially, the product line claims that large enterprises can now have it both ways: a way to make the type of applications that are typically derived from an agile-development process (with access to trendy technology like containers and new database services) all while being monitored under the iron fist of the enterprise. Kudos to Heroku if it can pull that off. With Heroku Enterprise, organizations can supposedly now monitor all their developers, applications and resources under one interface.
