One way to shift testing practices earlier in your software lifecycle is by using multi-layered visual models to specify requirements in a way where all ambiguity is inherently removed. With unambiguous and complete requirements, developers introduce less defects into their code and manual test cases, automated test scripts and required test data can be automatically generated based on the requirement, without manual intervention.
In a series of articles Paul Gerrard, a testing guru and consultant, discusses a range of testing topics. Test models are fundamental to testing and, in this article, Paul talks about the art of creating and using models. If testers are “shifting left,” pairing with developers or at least working more closely with developers, testers (and developers) need to be able to create models, learn how to articulate and share them, and support better collaboration.
You want to deliver new innovations, release apps faster and take advantage of new opportunities, but legacy applications and infrastructure are holding you back.

Marketing and technology partners must collaborate as never before in order to delight and engage customers “in the moment.”
Previously stove-piped functions are starting to work together to take a holistic approach to create great digital experiences at enterprise
scale, but organizations see the need for more work to create relevant, integrated digital customer experiences in real time.
IBM commissioned Forrester Consulting to discover how developers and marketers are working together to provide customers
exceptional digital experiences reliably, quickly, and seamlessly.
The study found that while the mandate to collaborate has been heard, there is still work to be done to move to the next level and put in
place technology, processes, and culture to create digital customer experience in real time.

With increasing demands being made on enterprise IT
departments to keep up with the accelerating pace of business,
infrastructure has to enable more dynamic, eficient application
and IT service delivery. Unfortunately, more ofen than not, IT
provisioning can be a bottleneck. Traditional means are ofen
ineficient. When developers plan their projects and estimate the
server, networking, and storage resources they need, they ofen
overestimate and pad their requests to ensure what actually
gets provisioned is adequate. The formal request comes via an IT
ticket, and then the waiting begins. Days, possibly weeks go by
before they get the resources they need, and all the while they’re
unable to iterate on and evolve core business oferings.

With a global monthly reach consisting of more than 500 million mobile users and billions of requests, Tapjoy historically relied heavily on their IT footprint. They needed an environment
that would allow them to accelerate the development and improve the performance of their big data algorithms, which help drive real time decision-making that delivers the best content to their global audience. Tapjoy engineers opted for a cloud-based model to run their big data platform instead of bare metal, prioritizing agility and the ability to scale over
bare metal performance.
Initially they deployed at AWS, but as the platform grew and their AWS costs increased, Tapjoy began to look for ways to better manage their growing public-cloud spend while increasing efficiency. They needed to do this without compromising the cloud experience they were giving their developers.
Open-source is becoming an increasingly critical component being leveraged by agile enterprises. The capital investment required to develop next generation business solutions demands that components be built and targeted to the platform best suited for the task. Understanding the tools available for you or your developers to gain efficiencies to build solutions once, and deploy on a choice of scalable and reliable platforms is of paramount importance.

The traditional technical and cultural challenges that large, hierarchical IT organizations face become more visible during times of IT transformation, such as the adoption of cloud technologies, DevOps practices, and agile methodologies. Persistent organizational culture is organic, and it can be extremely difficult for IT leaders to dictate it effectively from the top down. IT leaders can, however, use technology to encourage proper incentive structures in all levels of the organization. This paper explores the role of OpenShift by Red Hat in creating an atmosphere where creative and passionate developers can succeed frequently and quickly. Their success means decisionmakers can impact organizational culture and more rapidly achieve their goals. In this way, IT leaders can harness the efficiency and persistence of spontaneous organization, despite the inherent limitations of hierarchical systems.
Cloud in the enterprise has grown up. It’s no longer just a sandbox for developers, or a sneaky backdoor way for business units to get more IT resources fast. Now, IT leaders are seeing the big picture: cloud as the de facto model for delivering the whole of IT to the whole of the business. Increasingly, they’re adopting a Cloud-First mindset.
As IT departments’ lists of backlogged application development projects keep growing, so does the speed of new development requests from line-of-business personnel. For many IT departments, the speed of business — the speed of requests for additional developments — can’t be met under current practices. This inability to keep pace with critical development requests, supporting timely strategy modifications, seriously impacts an enterprise’s profitability. The solution FICO advocates — one that accounts for budget constraints, legacy operational realities and quality assurance — is to empower line-of-business personnel as Citizen Developers, giving them the right set of technology assets to quickly, safely and cost effectively participate in application development.

The clear benefits of agile development—better collaboration, incremental delivery, early error detection and the elimination of unnecessary work—have made it the default approach for many teams. Agile methods are also being adopted by systems engineering teams to deliver the same benefits. Some developers have questioned whether requirements fall into the category of unnecessary work, and can be cut down or even completely eliminated. Meanwhile, teams developing complex products, systems and regulated IT continue to have requirements-driven legacy processes.
So how does requirements management fit in an agile world? This paper argues that requirements management can bring significant value to agile development in regulated IT and complex product development projects, and sets out the characteristics of an effective requirements management approach in an agile environment.
