Software is critical to the success of every business. The line of business and IT organization must be aligned on the enterprise software strategy.
Managing the business of software is a service offered by strategically focused professional services teams. Successfully managing the business of software is an integral part of a successful transformation of an IT organization to be aligned, collaborative, and connected across the entire software supply chain and the line of business.
This report highlights why HP Software ALM Professional Services is a powerful mix of people, process, and technology to help enable a fully optimized enterprise achieve strong business outcomes.
Is your organization preparing to evaluate, investigate, and adopt a service virtualization solution? Download voke’s 2012 Market Snapshot Report to get the latest insights on how service virtualization is meeting its promise to deliver more predictable, effective, and efficient business outcomes.
Market Snapshot Report highlights:
voke surveyed over 200 participants from diverse technology and non technology companies about their use of Agile development and the results they experienced. This report presents and analyzes their responses about the use, general perceptions, challenges, and benefits of Agile. This analysis provides organizations a context for evaluating whether or not to participate in the Agile movement, and identifying how, when, or whether or not Agile practices make sense for their organizations.
This report highlights eight key factors that are driving innovation in the testing market, including mobility, the cloud, embedded software, development testing, infrastructure test optimization (ITO) and lifecycle virtualization.
Organizations can no longer dictate where, when, or how software is used. Workers are mobile, customers are global, and every individual has a preference as to how they want to consume software. Testers must be able to plan for and execute as many combinations and permutations of software and hardware as possible to predict the outcome of software usage. Testing professionals are now in the strategic role of customer advocate and help deliver higher quality software throughout the enterprise by placing a laser focus on assessing the risk associated with every piece of software.
This special report will be available to voke's premium research subscribers and will also be available for individual purchase for a limited time.

Infrastructure—a structured platform of networked elements required to deliver services—is proliferating at an explosive rate.
Infrastructure is a critical and strategic component of every business. To protect a company’s brand promise, the infrastructure must be adequately and thoroughly tested. Optimizing testing for infrastructure is a problem that must be addressed and solved now. Organizations must be able to communicate, collaborate, and connect to share test information to deliver quality of service and to deliver high customer satisfaction. The brand is the promise an organization makes to its customers, and the infrastructure delivering real business value must deliver on that brand promise.
In 2012, voke published economic models to evaluate the hidden costs of software projects. Our key findings show that since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2009, the average cost of software projects is rising dramatically, this is in spite of smaller teams working shorter durations. At the same time, rework costs remain high or unknown and high profile software failures continue to make headlines daily.
Organizations must understand how defects create a hidden cost of rework in every software project and how these costs manifest differently in Agile and Non-Agile projects. Given the impact of catastrophic software failures on the brand, we should be witnessing a movement toward increased quality, not a reactionary call for more testing after the software has shipped.
Software engineering professionals are familiar with the concept of Cost of Quality, or more specifically, the cost involved with removing defects, essentially the cost of “rework.” The premise of this concept is that the later in the lifecycle a defect is identified, the more expensive it is to resolve the issue.
Most importantly, understand the business risks of prioritizing schedule to the exclusion of quality and ultimately cost. Empower your test organization to protect your brand from catastrophic failures.

On December 12 servicevirtualization.com is hosting an exclusive webinar with voke analyst, Theresa Lanowitz. Theresa and her team at voke recently interviewed hundreds of service virtualization users, managers and decision makers on the types of value they are receiving by modifying their application development practices.
The value users are receiving is driving innovation faster and at the same time increasing quality inside companies. The report summarizes why application development teams face moving targets and how they are overcoming pervasive connection points and code changes to deliver more without increasing resources. The survey results include quantitative numbers on:

Software quality has a direct impact on the brand image of the company that built and uses the software. Individuals and organizations responsible for the design, development, testing, and delivery of software that is vital to the business and people or those who must effectively manage a variety of challenges pertaining to quality should not miss this event.
Traditional challenges such as time-to-market, reduced costs, and increased customer satisfaction are compounded when cloud and mobile platforms are introduced. Organizations of all types—ISVs, enterprise IT, online providers, embedded systems groups, professional service organizations, device manufacturers, and telcos—must all adopt new software testing strategies to meet the rigorous demands of this changing business environment.
Lifecycle virtualization, development testing, and infrastructure test optimization help to deliver inventive ways of solving these traditional challenges. Today’s modern solutions work and can help to alleviate tactical activities and transform organizations of all types to more strategic teams with better technology and business alignment. In particular, as mobile devices and tablets “consumerize” the business application, quality, time-to-market, and costs all need to be optimized relative to the risks of new initiatives.
In this web seminar, voke's Theresa Lanowitz and Cognizant's James Mondi share examples across industries where strategic quality initiatives have been implemented to drive business outcomes and generate incrementally more business value. This web seminar will help you contextualize the strategies and processes around end-to-end quality with real life experiences and challenges.

Organizations can no longer dictate where, when, or how software is used. Workers are mobile, customers are global, and every individual has a preference as to how they want to consume software. As a result, the testing market of the future will not have one dominant vendor; rather the market will be defined by software from testing vendors that is open and integrated with a wide variety of tooling options. Testers must be able to plan for and execute as many combinations and permutations of software and hardware as possible to predict the outcome of software usage. Testing professionals are now in the strategic role of customer advocate and help deliver higher quality software throughout the enterprise by placing a laser focus on assessing the risk associated with every piece of software.
