Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.

Today's test data management (TDM) solutions force teams to work with compromised data sets, and push testing to too late in the software development lifecycle. The end result is rework, delayed releases, and costly bugs that cripple production systems. Furthermore, prevailing approaches to test data management - including subsetting, synthetic data, shared environments, and standalone masking--represent flawed solutions that fail across one or more key dimensions.

This latest release facilitates bi-directional workflows between operations and application development to expedite problem resolution. Register to read the full report.
In today’s user-centric world, applications are increasingly at the heart of how your customers experience your products and services. Consistently good application performance is now essential to business success. This is where the quality of application performance enters the picture. Given the
complexities of today’s modern application environments, applications should be tested early, often, and thoroughly in the development cycle using processes and solutions to fit your specific needs. To help your organization meet this objective, this interactive brochure explores an eight-step framework for better application performance. This framework begins with business requirements and culminates in the ongoing optimization of
your application performance. With its expansive application software portfolio, HP covers all of the steps in this framework.
Business applications have become the battleground for customer loyalty. To compete, IT organizations are under pressure to deliver applications faster and with higher quality. Continuous Delivery (CD) of code offers a solution. CD may be paired with DevOps, Agile and other methodologies. However, QA and testing can be an obstacle to CD’s rapid development and deployment of high quality code. Testers and developers must engage in Continuous Testing, continuously testing software for performance, quality and user experience as it’s being developed.
Continuous Testing is not a push button process, though. It requires a comprehensive approach. This paper outlines the common challenges to Continuous Testing and highlights results from real users who have used technology to get to succeed with the Continuous Testing process.
With the application economy in full swing, more organizations are turning to Continuous Testing and DevOps development practices in order to quickly roll out applications that reflect the ever-changing needs of tech-savvy, experience-driven consumers.
Rigorous data they need, in the right formats. This forces teams to postpone their testing until the next sprint. As a result, organizations like yours are increasingly looking for ways to overcome the challenges of poor quality data and slow, manual data provisioning. They are also concerned about compliance and data privacy when using sensitive information for testing. CA Test Data Manager can help you mitigate all these concerns, so you’re positioned to achieve real cost savings.
To compete successfully in today’s economy, companies from all industries require the ability to deliver software faster, with higher quality, and reduced risk and costs. This is only possible with a modern software factory that can deliver quality software continuously. Yet for most enterprises, testing has not kept pace with modern development methodologies. A new approach to software testing is required: Continuous Testing.
In the first session in a series, join product management leadership to gain in-depth insights on how by shifting testing left, and automating all aspects of test case generation and execution, continuous testing, it enables you to deliver quality software faster than ever.

It is not uncommon for SAP system copies, including any post-editing, to take several days to complete. Meanwhile, testing, development and training activities come to a standstill, and the large number of manual tasks in the entire process ties up highly skilled SAP BASIS staff.
Enterprises are looking to automation as a way to accelerate SAP system copies and free up staff. However, this is only one part of the problem: What further complicates the system copy process is the need to safeguard sensitive data and manage huge data volumes while also ensuring that the data used in non-production systems adequately reflects the data in production systems so the quality of development, testing and training activities is not compromised.
This white paper explains how a considerable portion of the SAP system copy process can be automated using the CA Automic Automated System Copy for SAP solution and SNP T-Bone, helping enterprises become more agile.

In today’s application economy, everyone is in the software business. Auto makers are putting Wi-Fi hotspots in their cars. Watches are trading gears for motherboards. Even
soda fountains have evolved from dumb machines into instrumented devices with touch-screen user interfaces.
This digital transformation is changing the way applications are developed, tested, moved through environments and released into production—and it’s putting new demands on IT teams with which they’re struggling to keep up.
At a high level, this is because the application delivery systems and processes at many enterprises were put in place when IT only had to push out an annual or semi-annual release. But as market pressures and executive mandates have forced teams to deliver innovations faster and more frequently, a new set of development, testing, automation and customer challenges have appeared—acting as obstacles that stand between you and your digital transformation goals.
Are dev and test constraints holding back your digital transformation?
Today, just about all businesses are scrambling to add digital components to their products and services with the hopes of capturing—and maintaining—the interest of an increasingly demanding customer base. As you undergo this digital transformation, your IT teams face tremendous pressure to not only develop innovative new experiences, but do so at an accelerated rate—lest competitors beat you to market with the next big thing.
Take a new approach to solving the familiar challenge of doing more with less—and doing it faster than ever before -- remove the constraints holding you back.
At its core, Service Virtualization is all about removing constraints within the SDLC by simulating dependent systems, services and behaviors. In order to understand the true depth and breadth of this concept, however, it helps to see how Service Virtualization can be utilized in different development scenarios.
"GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation has just been signed into law and enacts new rules and stiff penalties for any company who misuses or loses European Union (EU) citizens’ personal data. This sweeping legislation has expanded the definition of personal data and puts IT and testing departments on high alert to safeguard personal data, across development and testing environments. Test data management, the process of obtaining and distributing test data for development teams, takes on greater urgency as the GDPR deadline looms.
Solid test data management practices will be key to overcoming compliance roadblocks and avoiding huge fines associated with GDPR. Utilizing new ways in which test data can be generated, distributed and managed will be pivotal role to meeting this regulation.
In this webcast, Vanson Bourne and CA will present the results of their highly anticipated GDPR readiness survey of 200 corporations in North American and the UK. Join us to learn more about:
"There's new legislation in place, that's expanded the definition of personal data and puts IT and testing departments on high alert to safeguard personal data, across testing and development environments. It's the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Are you ready for it?

Today's technology is getting more and more complex, and it's moving from the lab to homes and offices faster than ever. Increasing competition, expanding markets, and a growing expectation for seamlessness mean IoT and SaaS companies alike are looking for a thorough but fast-paced means to validate the quality of their products and releases.
This e-book gives a straight-forward introduction to Customer Validation -- the modern framework for beta testing. It anchors the four key components of traditional beta (people, products, environment, and time frame) around the needs of present-day product development. This includes: establishing the building blocks for thoroughly testing interoperability, creating accurate user scenarios, carving out channels for direct customer interaction, and identifying solutions that will delight your audience.
Software delivery processes and systems, and the people involved with them, are under increasing pressure. Sometimes it’s digital transformation, other times it’s simply the challenge of keeping up with the demands created by ever more dynamic markets and an escalating pace of change. None of this is news, but is does provide an important backdrop to the discussion of how software delivery needs to evolve, especially given that traditional methods and approaches were never designed to deal with the fastmoving and unpredictable environment you are probably working in today.
