2008 was a tough year for IT, and 2009-2010 appear to be more of the same: Budget cuts, a focus on conserving cash and doing more with less. At the same time, technology has not stood still: innovative technologies that have the potential to deliver strategic value, such as application virtualization and replay debugging, are still being developed, and are entering the mainstream. What can we learn from previous economic downturns with regards to making technology investments in such a climate?

Join Theresa Lanowitz, analyst from voke, and Jonathan Lindo, CEO and Founder of Replay Solutions for a podcast discussion of current challenges in today's application problem resolution processes and suggestions for how application development teams can dramatically shorten the process of fixing defects to speed time-to-market. This session will give practical guidance on how your application team can:

  • Make incremental investments that have immediate ROI through the elimination of manual work
  • Save money and increase efficiency by eliminating complex processes needed to reproduce defects
  • Improve productivity with better collaboration between geographically disperse teams
  • Increase application quality by fixing those hard to find or elusive defects

Replay Solutions provides application problem resolution products that dramatically shorten the process of fixing defects to speed time-to-market. ReplayDIRECTOR functions like a DVR for enterprise applications - recording all inputs and events affecting your application while it is running, then replaying those steps to execute the code in exactly the same way and reproduce the error without needing to reproduce the environment the defect occurred in.

 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.

 
With the failure of www.HealthCare.gov, US taxpayers will pay the price for the cost of rework.  Modern tools such as service virtualization enable early testing of incomplete or unavailable components and systems to help mitigate potential risks of production failures.
 
Uncovering defects earlier in the software lifecycle saves time and money. In today’s environment where businesses and governments run on software, removal of defects related to requirements is essential to eliminating the risk of exponential cost overruns and schedule delays.
 
Collaboration and availability is essential prior to beginning development. It is much less expensive and easier to meet, discuss, review, and refine to ensure that requirements are properly defined and communicated than to change the code at a later point in the project.
 
Effective collaboration and test coverage of key requirements is essential. Make sure you invest properly in architecture, requirements, design, and quality practices that prevent the release of catastrophic failures.
Tips to avoid catastrophic failures:


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.

Learn why line of business involvement is critical to the success of any software project

The world is moving at the speed of software. The business, in its never-ending quest to be more competitive, demands everything faster. While this may seem like a new way of life, this demand from the business is not new. What is new is how we are dealing with the demands of the business – through managing the cost, quality, and schedule of software. We live in a world where we are constantly barraged with sound bites and are warned that if we do not release software every seven seconds, our 100-plus year old company is going to be in the dustbin of companies that were.

How do we survive and thrive in this era of sound bites while delivering value to the business and protecting the brand of our organization? How do we really manage cost quality and schedule? Where are the hidden costs coming from in our software projects? What does the cost of rework really mean?

You will learn:

  • How the defects create the hidden cost of rework in every software project
  • Why line of business involvement is critical to the success of any software project
  • Why it is necessary to go beyond the sound bite and really understand the impact of decisions

Date and Time: April 26, 2012, 2 p.m. EDT

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.

You’ll learn:

  • How to build strategies for testing new-age applications as well as age-old computing problems
  • Methods to enhance quality and service delivery by establishing the right structure, process streamlining, and by leveraging technology
  • Implementation approaches for an end-to-end quality initiative and some of its pitfalls and challenges

Join voke principal analyst Theresa Lanowitz and Wayne Ariola, VP of Strategy at Parasoft, for a 45-minute webinar that:

  • Discusses the challenges that impede thorough and accurate testing of today's composite apps.
  • Explains the real-world impacts of such testing delays and limitations.
  • Introduces new technologies that enable testers to access the exact test environments they need—any time and anywhere.

You'll learn how service virtualization not only provides 24/7 access to the environments needed to test, but also significantly reduces the CAPEX and OPEX associated with establishing, configuring, and maintaining test environments.

Almost daily, we see reports of software failures that harm enterprises and impact the brand, putting testing organizations and their efforts in the spotlight. Fortunately, testers are now in one of the most exciting times in the software industry’s history! Theresa Lanowitz describes how you can begin to use new technologies—cloud, virtualization, and mobility—to deliver more value to your company, enhance your career, and act as a change agent for higher quality. As organizations adopt cloud and mobile strategies, testers must be ready to deliver immediate value on these new platforms while test organizations must complement and extend their existing tools to ensure these new platforms meet the demands of the business—especially in the areas of performance and security. Theresa reports on the ways that leading organizations are using the cloud and virtualization to test over more platforms, deliver greater coverage, and find critical defects prior to production. Find out how your team can begin to use—or enhance your use of—these technologies while improving on all corners of the classic “cost, quality, schedule” triangle.

The link between software defects and business risk, including delayed time-to-market and lost customer satisfaction, is undeniable. To remain agile today and avoid quality control problems late in the cycle, requires testing be expanded beyond traditional QA testing into development.

In this live eSeminar leading industry analyst Theresa Lanowitz of voke, along with Coverity experts, will demonstrate why the key to success does not lie in adapting your current process, but in integrating development testing into your existing application or software development lifecycle.

During this informative 60-minute webinar, technology experts will explain:

  • The benefits of development testing, from faster time-to-market to enhanced visibility
  • How to transform your development organization to drive quality
  • How to foster better collaboration between Development and QA

Cloud computing is happening in a big way.  No wonder: infrastructure-as-a-service, resource elasticity, and user self-service promises huge, visible, and fast returns.

The needs of software development and testing  for scalable, flexible, compute-intensive IT infrastructure makes it an incredible candidate  for the benefits of cloud computing. Whether it is vast clusters for testing, dozens of machines to run ALM tools, or the requests for “just one more box,” development and test teams are always asking for something , it is always changing, and time is of the essence.

Join us as Theresa Lanowitz, the founder of analyst firm voke, discusses the utilization of cloud resources for test and development.  Theresa will share research showing how this approach can lead to lower costs, more productivity, and more predictability. Joining Theresa will be Anders Wallgren, CTO of Electric Cloud, who  will show how task and workflow automation, resource management, and tool integrations allow test and development  teams to effectively use a  cloud infrastructure.

Every tester has heard “it works on my machine” from a developer, referring to a defect deemed to be non-reproducible. We all know the back-and-forth conversations and have yearned for ways to easily replicate test environment failures in the development environment. Test organizations often struggle with access to test environments that closely match production while the operations department struggles to keep up with the demand for provisioned environments. Virtual lab technology can solve these frequent, tedious, and expensive problems, delivering immediate productivity and return-on-investment. By shattering barriers between development, testing, and operations, virtual lab technology is transformational and promises to be the hub of the modern application lifecycle. Theresa Lanowitz shares the results of the “voke Market Snapshot” report on virtual lab management. This groundbreaking research is relevant, current, and something all testers and test managers need to know. Learn how to leverage virtual labs in your test organization while eliminating the age old developer-tester contention that “it works on my machine.”

If you’re interested in optimizing IT resources by transforming your application lifecyclein particular efficiency and qualitythen Join Theresa Lanowitz, founder of analyst firm voke, as she presents the findings of a recent market snapshot on performance centers of excellence (CoEs). Topics covered will include building a performance COI, achieving qualitative and quantitative ROI, gaining organizational maturity, and realizing strategic value and tangible results. You’ll come away with a new strategic approach to delivering customer satisfaction, high quality, and resource savings.

Performance experts discuss ways to document performance and scalability requirements, track those requirements through development and test, and measure performance across every stage of the development lifecycle. The panel concludes with a debate on how to best determine if those requirements are met prior to moving to production. This discussion gives you insight into how to:

  • Define measurable performance requirements before a line of code is written
  • Drive development and test strategies through effective performance requirements
  • Determine if performance requirements are met before application deployment


To achieve business optimization through the application lifecycle, organizations are building centers of excellence (COE). A COE focused on performance is a strategic way to deliver customer satisfaction, high quality and resource savings.

Join Theresa Lanowitz, founder of voke Inc., as she presents the findings of a recent Market Snapshot on Performance Centers of Excellence. In this presentation, we will discuss:

  • Building a performance COE
  • Achieving performance COE ROI – qualitative and quantitative
  • Gaining organizational maturity through a performance COE
  • Realizing the benefits, results, and strategic value of a performance COE

Uncertain times demand surefooted testing and QA strategies that ensure your software and applications perform as desired.   Theresa Lanowitz is presenting the Business Challenges of Testing at Cognizant's exclusive event.

When solving problems with enterprise applications, the first challenge is to reproduce the error. This is the basic starting point of any problem resolution process - programmers need to reproduce problems to fix their code, testers must verify and document defect reports before sending them to development, and support teams need to understand the specific details of a problem before escalating user issues. It sounds simple enough, but for enterprise applications this can be an extraordinarily complex and costly process. Re-creating the environment, re-populating the database, and generating the required load on the servers is a tedious, manual process that involves many teams. There is a clear need for corporate IT to be able to automatically reproduce any problem, from anywhere in the world, without needing to reproduce it using brute force.

Join Theresa Lanowitz, analyst from voke, and Jonathan Lindo, CEO and Founder of Replay Solutions for a discussion of current challenges in today's application problem resolution processes and suggestions for how application development teams can dramatically shorten the process of fixing defects to speed time-to-market. This session will give practical guidance on how your application team can:

  • Save money and increase efficiency by eliminating complex processes needed to reproduce defects
  • Improve collaboration between geographically disperse teams
  • Increase application quality by fixing those hard to find or intermittent defects

Replay Solutions provides application problem resolution products that dramatically shorten the process of fixing defects to speed time-to-market. ReplayDIRECTOR functions like a DVR for enterprise applications - recording all inputs and events affecting your application while it is running, then replaying those steps to execute the code in exactly the same way and reproduce the error without needing to reproduce the environment the defect occurred in.

All are painfully aware of the dismal statistics on software projects success rates. Recent reports show that the situation is not trending for the better, and continue to point to poor requirements as the leading cause. When you peel back the covers it’s really no wonder – the discipline of Requirements Definition is not formalized, most are trying to do this work using only word processors and spreadsheets, and the role of requirements author is anything but standardized or supported.

The good news is that there is significant movement in the industry on all these fronts of late. Professional organizations are emerging for this discipline and are growing rapidly, powerful purpose-built tools for Requirements Definition now exist, and the role of the Business Analyst is rapidly solidifying. This presentation provides a snapshot of these new developments and shares some results from a recent study on the role of the Business Analyst.

Tag Results for Test Automation — Recognition

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.
