Agile Development and DevOps emphasize quick feedback cycles. But how do we test non-trivial applications with many components? What do we do when some components are outside of our control, expensive to access, or simply not ready to test against? Delaying integration testing or running the tests infrequently is can cause problems to linger, quality to fall, and delivery delays.

Agile is a cornerstone of software delivery from IT to complex and embedded systems. This research-based paper reports on key challenges, patterns and working practices for extending Agile to cross-discipline deployment in product and systems development.
This white paper describes software as the invisible thread that links product parts into an intelligent whole. It examines software delivery for smart products and strategies for evolving software development into a business process. Agile development has become a cornerstone of most software development organizations. Marked by iterative processes that deliver incremental value over time, agile development has enabled organizations to manage software complexity more effectively and to improve quality and time to market compared with previous development processes.
In this era of unprecedented change, organizations need agility to adapt rapidly. Part of what separates winners from losers is the ability to respond quickly and intelligently to market opportunities, competitive threats and regulatory constraints — in short, to innovate and create value. The best companies understand how to use technology for strategic advantage to help accomplish these goals.
Many healthcare providers have gone through several challenging years of organizing their electronic records systems. And during that time, consumer-driven healthcare has gained momentum. This executive brief explains how an IBM WebSphere Portal software–based solution can provide a flexible and valuable long-term solution compared to other options, with personalized user experiences that help deliver agile, security-rich access to relevant information.
One of the biggest hurdles that enterprises face is a lack of trust in IT’s ability to deliver business value. While a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) can sort things out by making systems more flexible and agile, this is only part of the answer. What’s missing is an effective model for engaging consistently with business teams throughout the whole lifecycle of IT investments.
Practically every CIO office is focused on quickly exploiting opportunities to drive value for the business. Decisions about seamlessly integrated and personalized portal infrastructures with high operational efficiencies are top of mind. Through agile and unique online experiences, portals bring together applications, information sources and people – in the contexts of role and associated business processes – on the Web and across the value chain. Additionally, they increase talent effectiveness and productivity while lowering costs, and they drive value chain agility and customer advocacy.
Does your IT change as fast as the market? A service-oriented architecture (SOA) provides a foundation that enables agility and aligns IT to business goals. This interactive presentation from IBM will show you how to provide fast, flexible, reliable access to information, business-wide. It also covers methods to ensure trust, management and security across business applications.
Technology can prove to be a vital component in the quest for service profitability. However, there is a lot of technology out there targeted at field service organizations which has evolved to the point where its introduction in customer-facing functions can significantly enhance organizational productivity.
