  • Gartner, Inc.’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Integrated Software Quality Suites (ISQ)


Testing is one of the key processes in the software development life cycle. The market has been steadily maturing to deliver improved user success, but technology changes like agile practices, mobile computing and cloud platforms can complicate vendor evaluation for testers and test managers. The integrated software quality (integrated quality assurance [IQA]) tool suite market is a subsegment of the overall software development life cycle market. It is a composite market composed of an integrated suite of related toolsets, rather than a single technology. Read Gartner, Inc.’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Integrated Software Quality Suites

Demonstrations

  • Continuous Testing applications deployed on IBM WebSphere software


Testing today's complex applications is creating new challenges for organizations wanting to accelerate software delivery. To deliver today's software at the speed the business demands, teams can no longer wait or defer testing until later in the development lifecycle when all of the application components are finally available. This short video demonstrates how teams can use IBM's test automation and service virtualization capabilities to test applications deployed on IBM WebSphere software earlier and continuously which in turn decreases the cost of testing, identifies defects earlier - when they are cheaper to fix, and reduces project risk.

Service Virtualization For Dummies - Enabling continuous testing

The ability to rapidly release new product features is vital to the success of today's businesses. At the same time, testing these composite applications can take longer and cost more. Attend this session to gain insights on which services to virtualize in order to maximize your ROI. Discover how testing at the API layer can isolate defects for faster remediation and avoid late stage integration issues. Stop waiting until the complete application is available in a test environment to begin your work. Leave with an understanding of how virtual components can make incomplete or unavailable application functionality available for testing.


Achieve competitive advantage through Continuous Testing

Accelerating software delivery has become critical for organizations to sustain market leadership and create new business opportunities. Delivering software at the speed the business demands is creating new challenges for the entire development team – programmers and testers alike. Teams now need to continuously test today’s complex applications in order to get higher quality software to their customers faster. However, delays and interruptions are forcing teams to revisit how software is tested, adopting new techniques and technologies to give them more time to do what they were hired to do – test! Join IBM to explore today’s testing challenges - such as interruptions - and then hear insight on how to remove these testing bottlenecks. You'll learn about solutions to help teams test earlier, more often, and for less.
