Countless QA teams continue using subpar testing tools because they can’t stand the thought of migrating thousands of test artifacts or training testers on an entirely new platform. Many would prefer the status quo of using their current toolset because they believe that a migration will be painful, or that it will slow them down. But there’s a problem with that logic: The longer they wait, the more obsolete their current toolset becomes, and the further removed QA becomes from the rest of the software development lifecycle — which often means that testing lags behind, remaining a roadblock on the agile transformation journey.
This white paper will cover:
o The true cost of using inadequate legacy tools, and why migrating now is better than waiting
o Six steps to make migration as painless as possible for your QA and development teams
o How the entire SDLC benefits from a flexible toolset that integrates quality into agile processes

Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.
Implementing source code vulnerability testing in the software development life cycle. Finding and fixing security issues early is an application project can help reduce development costs while improving software quality. Source code security tools implemented and used across the software development life cycle are known to provide such results.

Digital transformation (DX) continues to headline business initiatives as companies look to remain competitive in the rapidly changing IT landscape. Organizations are increasingly investing in and implementing next-generation applications and architectures such as software-defined IT and hybrid IT to drive higher levels of efficiency and agility. These modern technologies and architectures, however, also require organizations to evolve their underlying infrastructure to support new capabilities and demands.
Recent strength in the server market, which continues to operate in a marketwide refresh cycle, illustrates the growing demand for new infrastructure. 1Q18 marked the server market's fifth consecutive quarter of both shipment and revenue growth and represented a fourth consecutive quarter of year-on-year ASP growth, as customers continue to replace aging server infrastructure with more powerful and efficient systems that leverage the latest platform developments from processor supp
Discover service virtualization and how it fits into the big picture of software quality. In this book, Service Virtualization For Dummies, IBM Limited Edition written by industry analysts Marcia Kaufman and Judith Hurwitz, learn how to deliver higher quality software by increase the efficiency and effectiveness of your testing processes while reducing testing downtime and testing cost.
HPE StormRunner Load is a cloud based performance testing solution that helps agile development teams release robust products that scale with confidence. The comprehensive analytic will identify performance bottleneck before deployment.
The dynamic interaction between these parts is simulated using ABAQUS/Explicit. With the model, it is possible to predict the kinematics of the impact mechanism, including torque spike characteristics and driving speed. Key characteristics of the model have been validated by tests.
The ABAQUS/Explicit simulation to predict tracking consists of several steps. First, find the belt shape, as it is stretched around the rollers. Second, apply tensioning device forces and roller misalignments. Finally, initiate belt rotation, transient and steady state.
Cloud adoption is an expanding part of IT organizations’ strategies, and IT architects are growing more sophisticated in how they think about cloud; however, as of early 2015, relatively few organizations have truly advanced levels of cloud maturity. In IDC’s recent worldwide CloudView Survey, we discovered that nearly 60% of organizations are currently using or planning to implement some form of cloud — whether for a single project or their portfolio, for test/development environments, or to run mission-critical applications 24 x 7 — but only 25% have reached the level that IDC would call “mature”— that is, building repeatable, managed, or optimized cloud strategies. There is significant room for improvement.
Even with the latest devices, your mobile workforce may not have
what they need to get the job done. Without a strategy to provide them with data and applications, they’re forced to work without them or find workarounds that can compromise security.
Today’s workers are constantly on the move, and IT departments are scrambling to keep up. Access to email is not enough. You must address the legacy applications that your employees can’t easily access from their mobile devices, knowing that app development can be cost prohibitive and complex. And you have to have a strategy in place to secure and manage every application in use.

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.
Service virtualization and testing automation speed time-to-market: Discover how Walgreens has reduced application development cycle time (from 10 weeks to 5 to 7 weeks), transformed testing into a non-linear, agile process and ensured high quality of proprietary business applications using HP Application Lifecycle Management solutions.

Business applications have become the battleground for customer loyalty. To compete, IT organizations are under pressure to deliver applications faster and with higher quality. Continuous Delivery (CD) of code offers a solution. CD may be paired with DevOps, Agile and other methodologies. However, QA and testing can be an obstacle to CD’s rapid development and deployment of high quality code. Testers and developers must engage in Continuous Testing, continuously testing software for performance, quality and user experience as it’s being developed.
Continuous Testing is not a push button process, though. It requires a comprehensive approach. This paper outlines the common challenges to Continuous Testing and highlights results from real users who have used technology to get to succeed with the Continuous Testing process.
In this whitepaper I argue that the person most affected by the introduction of agile or extreme programming techniques is not the software or quality assurance engineer, but the build manager. And the build manager can no longer make do with home grown tools; software production automation tools are required to make agile development a build reality.

TechWell, IBM, uTest, and Keynote partnered on a powerful new survey that explores where today’s testers are spending their time, what obstacles they most often encounter, and where they think their attention should be focused.
This "paradigm shift" includes a move from a predominance of physical testing for product prototype validation to simulation-led problem solving and performance validation, using Computer Aided Engineering, and Design (CAE and CAD) tools.
