IBM Thought Leadership Webinar: Boosting Software Quality and Development Agility
AlWagner 120000DGH6 Visits (2710)
The world of developing and testing today's composite applications is becoming more and more complex as new innovative software and solutions are being built and deployed to meet the needs of the business. This complexity is driving up the cost of quality in terms of both labor and test lab costs. Today's approach of adding more testers to projects in order to validate new functionality and ensure the existing continues to work as expected is reaching it's practical end of life. In addition to increasing labor costs, the effort and hardware requirements associated to providing and administering the necessary test environments is also a contributing factor for the cost of quality - along with adding the potential for project delays. There has to be a better way - and there is!
The key to boosting software quality and development agility is virtualization and more specifically virtualizing the dependent services to perform continuous end to end integration testing much earlier in the development cycle. Simulating dependencies of 3rd party services allows test teams to validate critical integrations earlier avoiding late stage integration issues where defect resolution is more expensive. Simply put virtualization can help you drive down the cost of testing, reduce risk and improve cycle time.
In this, the second Thought Leadership web cast sponsored by IBM, Peter Cole, CEO of Green Hat, an IBM Company, will share his thoughts on continuous integration testing and virtualization and how this new approach to testing can help organizations test earlier at a fraction of the traditional costs.
As a introduction to what will be shared during the web cast, listen to the preview podcast available on IBM Rational Talks to You.
