Smarter Testing for a Smarter World
best practices to extend Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) to include quality management and improving project outcomes.
The cost of developing these complex software and systems is continuously rising while there is a strong pressure in all organizations to cut project costs. The factor of faster market reach has become even more important for organizations to gain and sustain competitive advantage. This business demand is forcing development teams to deliver applications faster, driving a need for change in the world of testing. Improving software quality and development agility has become the norm for success in this changing world.
Advanced technologies like virtualization and the cloud enable continuous integration testing across the lifecycle. They also enable integration testing of composite applications in complex heterogeneous environments much earlier in the development cycle. This mandates the features of software testing tools catering to these technologies be proactive and visionary. The practice of simulating behavior, quality and performance of systems under development during development and testing cycles (aka service virtualization) is gaining importance.
Please join us in a webcast on how to boost software quality and development agility with Peter Cole founder and CEO of Green Hat, an IBM Company. He'll be talking about today's extreme challenges of increasing cost of quality and development complexity while balancing quality and speed for software projects.
