Continuous Testing: An IBM point of view
Testing takes time and it is costly. Especially across multiple systems and platforms in the complex, hybrid cloud world. Teams that improve their test efficiency and effectiveness significantly reduce their expenses and the time it takes to get high-quality innovative solutions to end users. You can't test everything, and you can't automate everything, so it is critical to find the right subset of tests in the riskiest areas. Also key is service virtualization, which allows testing to begin as soon as a build is made, by mimicking missing dependencies. By combining test automation and service virtualization, teams test earlier, or "shift left," and continuously, so they gather feedback faster than ever.

Flow measurements for software
DevOps is best understood as applying highly successful lean management practices to business processes that include software. However, lean techniques such as value stream mapping and flow management are generally applied to more business processes such as manufacturing and logistics that are more easily controlled. This article extends those lean techniques to processes that include software by treating DevOps as an artifact-centric business process. Taking this approach shows, in particular, how DevOps can be instrumented and measured to help achieve business goals.

Use Rational Quality Manager in a continuous delivery DevOps pipeline
Automated testing is an important piece of the DevOps continuous delivery pipeline. It's easy enough to write automation test scripts and have them be triggered after a build is installed. It is more difficult to maintain a group of tests to run, the machines to run them on, and a history of the test results. This set of tasks can be daunting if you are using plain ANT and properties files to maintain the inventory.

DevOps for rapid software production
Producing IT software solutions fast enough to meet operational demands has become increasingly challenging for technology-rich businesses. The process is labor intensive and requires iterative procedures as well as 24x7 attentiveness to integrating, compiling, and testing code. At first glance, throwing additional resources at the problem seems the logical response, but a better solution is to develop software applications more rapidly using a framework that is resilient enough to withstand mass-production automations. DevOps offers such a framework, and coupled with rapid application development, businesses can perform fast-paced prototyping, testing, and delivery while maintaining high quality standards.

Agile data analysis - Advanced workflows and R integration
To perform agile data analysis in a production environment, the processing of data must be integrated with tests that require a minimum of user interaction. The configuration of the analysis tools, therefore, must be done programmatically. You also need fast access to graphical reporting, which gives a visual representation of the resulting analysis, to help you determine whether further investigation is required. Learn how to use advanced workflow techniques in KNIME, an Eclipse-based graphical workbench for data analysis and reporting, and the R analysis package to create production-ready workflows and complex graphical representations of the processed data at any point in the workflow.

Security considerations for DevOps adoption
As DevOps matures and finds broader adoption in enterprises, the scope of DevOps must be expanded to include all the teams and stakeholders that contribute to application delivery. DevOps introduces an approach of continuous delivery and continuous testing of small sets of capabilities being delivered by an application delivery organization. Security teams can take advantage of this delivery approach as a way to reduce security risks. By continuously securing these smaller releases of functionality, they can identify security vulnerabilities early in the lifecycle and mitigate the effects early.
