Continuous testing is the practice of testing across every activity in the SDLC to uncover and fix unexpected behaviors as soon as they are injected. Continuous testing is the embedding of testing as a fundamental and ongoing aspect of every activity through the application lifecycle, from requirements through production, to ensure the business value is being achieved as expected.
As the pace of business continues to quicken, companies are starting to recognize that to stay competitive the process of developing and releasing software needs to change. Release cadence has greatly accelerated. There is no occasion anymore for a six- to 18-month find-and-fix turnaround in which the customer will find the delay acceptable. Things need to move faster, and they need to be ready and perfect faster.

There are five ways to provision test data. You can copy or take a snapshot of your production database or databases. You can provision data manually or via a spreadsheet. You can derive virtual copies of your production database(s).
You can generate subsets of your production database(s). And you can generate synthetic data that is representative of your production data but is not actually real. Of course, the first four examples assume that the data you need for testing purposes is available to you from your production databases.
If this is not the case, then only manual or synthetic data provision is a viable option.

MAINTENANCE MADE EASY WITH THE HELP OF DATA
Predictive maintenance involves gathering targeted data for analysis, the results of which will help anticipate potential failures before they occur. Companies opt for this type of maintenance to avoid predictable incidents and repair equipment, assembly lines, or machinery with minimum impact on their operations.
The concept of a virtual, digital equivalent to a physical product or the Digital Twin was introduced in 2003 at a University of Michigan Executive Course on Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) taught by Dr. Michael Grieves. In light of these advances, it is timely to explore how the Digital Twin can move from an interesting and potentially useful concept that aids in understanding the relationship between a physical product and its underlying information to a critical component of an enterprise-wide closed-loop product lifecycle.
Understand how focusing on the connection between physical product and virtual product will improve productivity, uniformity of production, and ensure the highest quality products.
A&D manufacturers and their suppliers now depend more than ever on global supply chains. As they reach across time zones, languages and cultures, supply chains have to work around challenges that build up costs and drag down production schedules. Communication between distributed engineering and production centers can be labored and error-prone. These problems are often compounded by repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production methods, and concern that the shop floor may not be working with current data. Ideally, global companies should be able to design products at any location and produce them at selected sites, with all stakeholders from design to the shop floor working concurrently from a single unique global data source.
Understand how manufacturing companies can deliver machined parts faster and increase revenue by reducing costs – despite operating globally across time zones and cultures.
Documents reviewed for production are the facts that underlay all claims and defenses – and they matter.

Solvent printing is the perfect solution for signs, vehicle wraps, and many other
print applications. Solvent inks produce top-quality graphics, enabling printing
service providers (PSPs) to maintain high-volume output and lower production
costs while providing their customers superior color gamut and accuracy.
Although solvent inks provide great performance and have many additional
bene ts, they come with one frustrating work ow drawback: the delays PSPs
experience by having to wait for solvent ink to dry, particularly when the
application requires lamination. A new breakthrough solvent ink technology
solves this problem by reducing print curing time by at least 75% of the 24
hour waiting period normally recognized by media manufacturers and industry
These new solvent inks make it possible for PSPs to laminate solvent prints on the
same day they are printed. PSPs can achieve high image quality without sacri cing
valuable time, plus they can avoid clutter and reduce spa

The media and entertainment industry
was valued at $1.81 trillion in 2016,
and is expected to reach $2.14 trillion
by 2020. Activities within this industry
have grown over the last couple of years,
and now range from creating content for
movies, TV and games, to delivering that
content. This is increasingly performed
via on-demand data networks rather
than traditional over-the-air broadcasting,
watched over high resolution displays that
enhance the overall viewing experience
of the user, and even the latter is
being delivered from the same storage
repositories. Media production is also
now prevalent in areas not traditionally
associated with this activity, such as
training, museums, and education.

Dell EMC technology for Digital Manufacturing harnesses the workstation, HPC and storage capabilities that combine to enable better products, more efficient design and production processes, and meet rapidly changing customer preferences.
Collecting, collating and digesting more and more data in the entire ecosystem, from product modelling to after-sales trends, are making the digital factory a powerful and necessary reality in the manufacturing landscape.
Intel's factories rely on thousands of PCs for manufacturing automation; keeping these PCs up and running can prevent expensive downtime. To manage these systems, Intel IT is using the Intel vPro platform's hardware- based feature, Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT), to help reduce production downtime caused by PC incidents by 87.5 percent.
Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is flooding today’s industrial sector with data. Information is streaming in from many sources — equipment on production lines, sensors at customer facilities, sales data, and much more. Harvesting insights means filtering out the noise to arrive at actionable intelligence.
This report shows how to craft a strategy to gain a competitive edge. It explains how to evaluate IIoT solutions, including what to look for in end-to-end analytics solutions. Finally, it shows how SAS has combined its analytics expertise with Intel’s leadership in IIoT information architecture to create solutions that turn raw data into valuable insights.

High-profile data breaches continue to make headlines as organizations struggle to manage information security in the face of rapidly changing applications, data centers, and the cloud. Against this backdrop, data masking has emerged as one of the most effective ways to protect sensitive test data from insider and outsider threats alike.
While masking is now the de facto standard for protecting non-production data, implementing it alongside virtual data technologies has elevated its effectiveness even further.

Today's test data management (TDM) solutions force teams to work with compromised data sets, and push testing to too late in the software development lifecycle. The end result is rework, delayed releases, and costly bugs that cripple production systems. Furthermore, prevailing approaches to test data management - including subsetting, synthetic data, shared environments, and standalone masking--represent flawed solutions that fail across one or more key dimensions.

For many companies the appeal of the public cloud is very real. For tech startups, the cloud may be their
only option, since many don’t have the capital or expertise to build and operate the IT systems their
businesses need. Existing companies with established data centers are also looking at public clouds, to
increase IT agility while limiting risk. The idea of building-out their production capacity while possibly
reducing the costs attached to that infrastructure can be attractive. For most companies the cloud isn’t
an “either-or” decision, but an operating model to be evaluated along with on-site infrastructure. And
like most infrastructure decisions the question of cost is certainly a consideration.
In this report we’ll explore that question, comparing the cost of an on-site hyperconverged solution with
a comparable set up in the cloud. The on-site infrastructure is a Dell EMC VxRailTM hyperconverged
appliance cluster and the cloud solution is Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Quality matters, but despite advances made in video streaming technology, delivering great quality live video over the
Internet is still not easy. There are challenges with predicting the scale and potential audience location; challenges with
managing complex encoder and origin technology; challenges of delivering video securely and reliably over the Internet;
and challenges of protecting live streams. Add to that the range of devices, the complexity of live event production, and
the demand for HD and 4K image quality and you get a scenario that is more complicated than ever before.
