Software Test Tools

Tools exist to support software testing at all stages of a project. Some vendors offer an integrated suite that will support testing and development throughout a project's life, from gathering requirements to supporting the live system. Some vendors concentrate on a single part of that life cycle. The software test tools knowledge base provides functional criteria you might expect from a testing tool, the infrastructure that supports the tool, and an idea of the market position of the vendor.

Enabling Security in the Software Development Life Cycle


When companies discover new security vulnerabilities, they must retrofit the affected software with an appropriate patch and fend off the wrath of customers. Each newly discovered vulnerability results in a frantic patch, halfway deployed, and potentially opens up another hole. That’s why you should address security vulnerabilities during the software development process—before you get locked into a game of catch-up.

Comparison of ERP and CRM Markets' Life cycle Snapshots


Today's enterprise applications are required as a matter of course to address more than the processes taking place within the walls of an enterprise. Almost all traditional ERP vendors (small and big alike) had to experience a wake-up call and have long been trying to expand their product offering in tune with the ever-changing trends and requirements of the new collaborative economy. The need for providing a full, comprehensive CRM suite rather than an individual solution or a bundle of point solutions for each distinct CRM area remains firm, and will urge further market consolidation.

Keys to Accelerating Web Application Delivery


Slowdowns, scalability issues, and security gaps hit Web applications where it hurts. Data center consolidations put distance between application servers and users—producing long round-trips and slow response times. Luckily, there is a solution. Deploying a wire-speed application system—in a unified single-platform design—boosts response times, improves infrastructure scalability, and safeguards against security threats.

Product Developers Need to Shift to an All-Digital Mindset


Over the past several decades, processes to design and build cars, airplanes, and other products have typically followed a linear, sequential path. But the inefficient flow of information has frequently led to delays in product delivery. To remedy the situation, product development groups are shifting to a more holistic digital mindset using digital business models, processes, and tools. By embracing digital like never before, product developers can become fully integrated digital businesses and, therefore, well positioned to be more competitive.
