The software that is developed and delivered to run a company is now part of the brand promise and is inextricably linked to it.

Software is complex, and making sure the right parts are tested and understanding the risk associated with software help mitigate catastrophic software events. Adopting the concept of extreme automation allows classic problems across the entire software lifecycle to be solved through modern tooling and eliminates as much human intervention as possible.

This report highlights why Tricentis Tosca Testsuite is a solution uniquely designed to put testing teams on the path to extreme automation and eliminate time-consuming manual tasks frequently associated with functional and regression testing.

The concept of the Cost of Quality, that is, the cost of rework to remove defects, is that the later in the lifecycle a defect is identified, the more expensive it is to resolve the issue. With its shift in requirements ownership from the business to developers who will discover requirements through changes to the source code, the Agile movement is effectively pushing requirements definition to later in the lifecycle. Applying models for the cost of rework to Agile projects reveals the hidden costs of the late definition of requirements. This report provides economic models for evaluating project results and selecting the most appropriate practices.

In this Enterprise Leadership podcast Theresa Lanowitz provides some down-to-earth discussion about cloud computing as a disruptive technology, moving one step closer to pervasive utility computing.

Every household doesn't need its own energy grid. If you follow this logic, then each enterprise does not need to be in the business of creating massive infrastructure. Why not take advantage of the some of the world's largest infrastructure offered to you by Amazon.com's Web Services or Google Apps Engine? That is the view of Theresa Lanowitz, the founder of voke, a research firm focused on breakthrough technologies, such as cloud computing.

She says that while Salesforce.com has revolutionized customer relations marketing by elevating it as a platform as a service, Amazon.com and Google.com have the opportunity to share their knowledge and expertise with every enterprise. She adds, "By making their massively scalable, highly available, high-performance environment, and a solid security infrastructure available, both Amazon.com and Google.com have moved one step closer to software as a service and pervasive utility computing. As a result, companies will be able to lower the cost of doing business and to remain innovative, competitive, and profitable. Enterprises of all sizes need to focus on delivering value to the marketplace of their core competency, regardless of what it is."

In this podcast, Theresa Lanowitz discusses the following:

  • What type of impact Amazon.com Web Services and Google Apps Engine will have on cloud computing;
  • What other areas of cloud computing and Web 2.0 will prevail;
  • Why CIOs are hesitant to embrace cloud computing; and
  • What three cloud computing takeaways CIOs need to think about in making decisions about this app?

With software, time-to-market has trumped everything, but at what expense? Catastrophic software failures have made headlines day after day, yet software quality seems to be an afterthought. This mindset of quality as an afterthought must be changed. Software quality professionals must reinvigorate thinking in the software lifecycle and focus on driving competitive business results through software. Software quality professionals can no longer act in isolation; they must be an advocate for the business and be able to identify risks in addition to defects.

Software quality professionals are witnessing an inflection point where quality is an endeavor undertaken across the software lifecycle. Quality professionals must learn to leverage modern technology to automate tactical activities to be able to focus on strategic activities that will deliver valuable business outcomes. It is time to bring quality back to software.

This presentation will focus on:

  • Why software quality is more important than ever for a truly digital organization
  • Why traditional silos must effectively collaborate to satisfy the needs of the business
  • How software quality professionals can update their skill sets to prevent business failures

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.

Will a new generation of Lifecycle Virtualization capabilities drive the development of the next set of industry leaders?

Let's face it - today's customer has "no mercy" for a company that can't deliver the services they demand, on time and with uncompromising quality. Keeping IT costs down is no longer a competitive differentiator - it is a requirement for entering the game. Therefore the companies that win in today's economy will be the ones that can innovate and deliver new products and services to market the fastest.

Lifecycle virtualization includes the following solutions such as virtual lab management (VLM), virtualized cloud platforms, service virtualization, defect virtualization, and device virtualization. Alongside desktop and server virtualization, lifecycle virtualization serves as the third pillar in a truly virtual environment. In fact, Lanowitz believes lifecycle virtualization has the power and potential to deliver more impact to the market than both server and desktop virtualization, by finally solving age-old and classic challenges of software development and delivery.

Get visionary insights about this latest customer-based research from voke principal analyst Theresa Lanowitz in this one-hour webinar. She will be joined by ITKO "Chief Geek" and CA distinguished engineer John Michelsen who will present real world examples of how Service Virtualization allows software development teams to shave weeks or months off their time-to-market, while drastically reducing infrastructure costs and performance issues in production.


With ever-increasing adoption of cloud in the enterprise, how will IT properly take advantage of it where it can provide the most value? Join ITKO and analyst firm voke's Theresa Lanowitz, a noted expert on virtual lab infrastructure, for the latest research on where virtual lab technology is going, and how devtest clouds will impact the enterprise view of both private and public clouds.

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.”

Application performance management requires you to pay attention to each step of the performance lifecycle - from designing the architecture, to the build, to testing, monitoring, maintenance and management. Performance experts dissect each phase of the lifecycle to reveal solutions for the most common performance problems, the right tools for the job, and tips for finding, diagnosing and fixing performance bugs.

This free, one-day virtual seminar focuses on:

  • Techniques for applying application management across the lifecycle
  • How to elicit performance goals for client, server and mobile applications
  • Applying a tools-based approach to any application performance management process
  • How to identify performance issues in cloud environments

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

How Virtualization is Enabling Self-Service to Transform the Global Lifecycle
Date: Wednesday, July 23, 2008
Time: 2:00 PM Eastern; 11:00 AM Pacific

Banks have ATMs; grocery stores have self checkout; airlines have self check-in. All of these self-service approaches provide convenience for customers and deliver ROI for the companies that offer them.  Self-service has appeared within the corporate environment as well.  Many companies are offering self-service access to computing resources to their business constituents. This increases the ability to provide infrastructure and services more efficiently and use resources in more strategic ways to benefit the business.

Cutting edge IT services are now available through a self-service model thanks to virtualization. Virtualization lets companies pool IT resources and provide them as needed throughout the entire global lifecycle.

Join analyst Theresa Lanowitz, founder of voke Inc., for this informative session where you will learn about self-service IT and:

  • Key components to the global lifecycle transformation
  • Current issues hindering the implementation of the global lifecycle and how to overcome them
  • Best practices and innovative technologies available for the enterprise

Learn how virtualization is enabling self-service to transform the global lifecycle!


Join Theresa Lanowitz and Blueprint on Wednesday June 18, 7:00-7:30pm at the Partner Showcase Theatre at HP Software Universe, Las Vegas, NV.

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.

We invite Business Analysts or anyone interested in requirements to take the survey! Read More...

Join leading Application Lifecycle analyst Theresa Lanowitz, voke, and iTKO LISA founder & Chief Architect John Michelsen, for this online event May 28, 2008, 2:00 PM Eastern / 11:00 AM Pacific.

Test managers constantly lament that few outside their group understand or care much about the value they provide and consistently deliver. Unfortunately, they are often correct. The lack of visibility and understanding of the test team’s contribution can lead to restricted budgets, fewer resources, tighter timelines, and ultimately, lower group productivity. Join Theresa Lanowitz and Dan Koloski as they highlights ways to move from simply being a tester of software to an advocate for your organization’s customers. Learn how to effectively and concisely communicate with key stakeholders in your organization to ensure that they understand the value and role of the testing group. With effective and concise communication, the testing group will be perceived as more strategically important and integral to the success of every project.


Specific points to be discussed include:
  • Strategies for communicating complex data
  • Ensuring your communications give you the visibility you need
  • How to create testing evangelists within your organization
