It’s your first cruise vacation and you’re ready to board. You check one last time to be sure the smart wristband the cruise line sent you last week is securely fastened. Then you join the rest of the crowd on the dock. As you calculate which boarding line is shortest, a crew member glances at your wristband and directs you to a special entrance. No waiting. Once at your room, a sensor verifies the ID in your device and the door opens automatically, saving you from having to juggle bags to find a key.
How can your business support new identity-defined workspaces across a variety of users — retail store associates checking inventory on a PC and a smartphone, hospital clinicians entering test results into a mobile workstation and an iPad, or financial advisors placing trades from Android devices and laptops?
The answer is the digital workspace.

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.

How? With Enterprise Agile Delivery. Enterprise Agile Delivery brings a wealth of benefits to organizations and can be adopted by any Agile hybrid framework: SAFe, LESS, Nexus as well as Agile/lean frameworks like Scrum and Kanban.
Yet to achieve Eneterprise Agile Delivery, enterprises need an easy to use modern ALM tool for quick and successful onboarding. Download this white paper to understand how the right solution will help you:
• Strategiaclly align feature releases and backlogs with your overall business strategy
• Identify and prioritize dev and test activities with visibility into project waves and portfolios
• Make data-based decisons for safe releases with real-time insights and multidimensional views into delivery risks
• Sync business, dev, QA and release teams around shared objectives with automated coordination and communication
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.

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.
With the application economy in full swing, more organizations are turning to Continuous Testing and DevOps development practices in order to quickly roll out applications that reflect the ever-changing needs of tech-savvy, experience-driven consumers.

It is not uncommon for SAP system copies, including any post-editing, to take several days to complete. Meanwhile, testing, development and training activities come to a standstill, and the large number of manual tasks in the entire process ties up highly skilled SAP BASIS staff.
Enterprises are looking to automation as a way to accelerate SAP system copies and free up staff. However, this is only one part of the problem: What further complicates the system copy process is the need to safeguard sensitive data and manage huge data volumes while also ensuring that the data used in non-production systems adequately reflects the data in production systems so the quality of development, testing and training activities is not compromised.
This white paper explains how a considerable portion of the SAP system copy process can be automated using the CA Automic Automated System Copy for SAP solution and SNP T-Bone, helping enterprises become more agile.

In today’s application economy, everyone is in the software business. Auto makers are putting Wi-Fi hotspots in their cars. Watches are trading gears for motherboards. Even
soda fountains have evolved from dumb machines into instrumented devices with touch-screen user interfaces.
This digital transformation is changing the way applications are developed, tested, moved through environments and released into production—and it’s putting new demands on IT teams with which they’re struggling to keep up.
At a high level, this is because the application delivery systems and processes at many enterprises were put in place when IT only had to push out an annual or semi-annual release. But as market pressures and executive mandates have forced teams to deliver innovations faster and more frequently, a new set of development, testing, automation and customer challenges have appeared—acting as obstacles that stand between you and your digital transformation goals.
Automated application quality assurance and testing are fundamental to the delivery of the service levels and managed risks that are essential to delivering business outcomes you can depend on. In this context, CA’s mainframe Application Quality Management and Testing Tools send very strong messages: the tools are being actively developed and, where appropriate, integrated with equivalent tools on the distributed platforms, to help companies deliver holistic, automated, business services.
Are dev and test constraints holding back your digital transformation?
Today, just about all businesses are scrambling to add digital components to their products and services with the hopes of capturing—and maintaining—the interest of an increasingly demanding customer base. As you undergo this digital transformation, your IT teams face tremendous pressure to not only develop innovative new experiences, but do so at an accelerated rate—lest competitors beat you to market with the next big thing.
Take a new approach to solving the familiar challenge of doing more with less—and doing it faster than ever before -- remove the constraints holding you back.
At its core, Service Virtualization is all about removing constraints within the SDLC by simulating dependent systems, services and behaviors. In order to understand the true depth and breadth of this concept, however, it helps to see how Service Virtualization can be utilized in different development scenarios.
