Enhance current usage of DTK to allow develpers testers to run multiple DTKs in parallel

Currently when you deploy the DTK you can only work against a single docker image. Often our developers are working on more than one project or indeed have platforms on different releases (eq QA, Integration). In order to develop/test they need to switch to the DTK version by reinstalling which can take up to half a day. Is there a way through configuration to deploy and switch between different DTK versions quickly to avoid this process? if not then we believe this would help implementers significantly when dealing with multiple customers/releases so they can quickly switch between them.


What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

It will make for a more flexible and efficient development team when dealing with multiple customers or releases. It is a good enhancement to consider to help business partners reduce cost and risk to customers but speeding up the time taken to switch to the correct DTK version.
