BUT IT’S NOT ENOUGH.
That’s because trends like agility, mobile and cloud
computing have QA teams bursting at the seams. As a
software development leader, you are under the gun to
deliver higher-quality software at an accelerating cadence
– and still find time to provide solid evidence of testing at
any given moment.
Test case management systems are – and have been – a
clear value driver in development organizations. But many
of these systems do not support today’s unique testing

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.

If you work in DevOps or software QA, you likely already know why
automated software testing is essential for quality control to keep
pace with continuous delivery. Automated testing delivers faster
results and more thorough coverage, and enables shift-left testing
for earlier detection of bugs.
Yet the issue of how to approach automated testing remains difficult
for many QA teams to solve. A range of obstacles makes it challenging to begin automating software tests, or to increase the extent of test automation beyond the basics.

In a case of “if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it,”
some software project failures occur because of a lack of
traceability — that is, an incomplete record of
documentation around software quality assurance efforts.
The lack of traceability has a significant impact on QA
testing effectiveness and meeting strategic goals. However,
with optimal traceability, testing becomes more efficient
and enables collaboration throughout the software
development lifecycle, as well as between product owners
and organization leaders.

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

A look inside the latest World Quality Report* and a conversation with Sogeti's Jean-Pascal Duniau. This report, published by Capgemini, Sogeti, and HP is based on interviews with 1,553 respondents in 25 countries uncovers a number of new developments in the testing / QA market and an increased change of pace. With a heightened focus on mobility and the demand for testing in the cloud gathering pace, this growing demand means that companies are having to re-evaluate their resources and strategies.

Our client is a very well-known, long-established bank with over 13 million customers across the globe. Over the years, they had built up a large and complex technological legacy. The landscape included over 1,000 different applications residing on a complex architecture and a hybrid mix of technology, which made testing the non-production environment an increasingly difficult task for quality assurance (QA) teams. Testing environments were fragmented, and this was compounded by a lack of ownership, governance processes, and communication regarding the status of environment readiness; causing delays, extending time to market, and increasing cost.
IBM Rational Testing Solutions for SOA help software delivery and QA teams to improve the quality of SOA solutions, by automating the creation, execution and analysis of functional, regression and performance tests of non-GUI business processes and services. In this webcast, we will demonstrate the benefits of IBM Rational Testing Solutions for SOA.
Software development projects have a long and storied history of failure. In fact, 82% of projects today run late, while errors cost 80% of the average project budget to fix (The Standish Group). Certainly no other business process today is allowed to endure this sort of failure. But software development is often left to chance, despite the significant cost and importance of the process.
In this Solution Spotlight, QA and test managers learn more about how they can be change agents to help ensure a smooth transition to Agile for their test teams, as well as tips on fitting testing into the development lifecycle.
Agile methods have a reputation for being fast and adaptive and can enhance both quality and team productivity. For these reasons they are attractive to software teams in many different domains - including safety-critical systems development. But how can agile methods be adapted to meet the needs of such a challenging domain? In the fourth episode of the series, IBM Rational Chief Evangelist, Bruce Powel Douglass discusses how agile practices can be adapted to meet the evidence needs of safety-critical projects.
