As an increasing number of organizations are going “agile”, quality concerns are being raised yet again. But being “agile” does not have to mean sacrificing quality. As a matter of fact, with agility can come

Stricter rules about exit criteria from one sprint to another and the overall pressure from users who want it now and working properly or they will use something else has made delivering quality software more important than ever.
Because of this elevated pressure for software of higher quality, IBM Rational software continues to increase their investment in helping organizations improve the quality of their software deliveries and the results are showing. IBM Rational was named “Software Testing Solutions Champion” by Info-Tech Research Group in their February 2013 Vendor Landscape on Software Testing Solutions. The report goes on to say that “IBM offers a comprehensive suite of products aimed at testing the most demanding and complex apps.” As well as “IBM offers the strongest testing product in this landscape.” This is truly a sign that the IBM investment is paying off.

resulted in the announcement of IBM Rational Test Workbench providing service virt
