The global lifecycle transformation is an interconnected ecosystem of people, processes and technology within an enterprise and across its partners, suppliers, providers and customers. In this paradigm, the enterprise IT organization becomes a strategic business partner focused on delivering value.
The transformation shatters barriers, facilitates collaboration and takes the risk out of software development to produce predictable reliable results for an optimized business outcome.
Outsourcing and specifically the trend to move tasks to offshore providers is evolving. At the end of the 20th century, the concept of using an offshore provider was primarily a cost issue. As the nuances, positives, and negatives of using offshore providers became visible the idea of team virtualization was the most popular reason for outsourcing. Now, as teams are truly virtualized across boundaries, both real and imaginary, outsourcing is about to enter a new phase. Offshore providers will more than likely take on more technical roles and responsibilities while their clients concentrate on the core business and deliver strategic value. Emerging nations where populations are increasing their technical skills are a haven for entrepreneurs and venture capital investments. In this edition of the Future Watch, we hypothesize on where technical skills will emerge and why standards will be driven to acceptance.
Application security is an issue practitioners have chosen to defer to the operations group. The rationale is multi-faceted and includes issues such as: lack of skills, lack of time, and lack of support by upper management. In this Market Commentary, we examine the six truisms that must occur to make the practice of application security a reality.
The acquisition of Mercury by HP is completed. The industry has lost an independent software company to a mega-vendor. It is unclear to the market what HP’s intentions are for the Mercury product line. In a highly competitive enterprise software application lifecycle market, HP does not have the luxury of time to slowly reveal their plans for the Mercury product line.

Service providers and network equipment manufacturers are adding automation to their pre-production testing process for a combination of reasons: improved test coverage, accelerated time-to-market for products or services, reduced capital and operational expense, optimized equipment use, reduced training time, greater test collaboration, reduced test backlog, and reuse. All of these automation drivers are intertwined and focus on delivering better quality to the customer. This Market Snapshot will focus on the need for test automation of networks and connected devices, identify a path to automation adoption and provide an overview of where the market is with respect to the right processes, technical skills and technology.
Virtualization is poised to become the defining technology of the 21st century. Virtual lab automation, a new use for virtualization in the application development and quality assurance organizations has made inroads to the pre-deployment side of the application lifecycle equation. In this Market SnapshotTM, we will examine the organization and its metamorphosis as virtual lab automation becomes more pervasive. We will also define the value and benefits of Virtual lab automation.

David Cassidy and puka shells, Donny Osmond and purple socks, or chocolate and peanut butter. OK, I am dating myself, but there are just some things that do go together. I spent the past 2 weeks realizing there is some truth to this concept, even in technology.
On April 25, 2007 I was honored to deliver the keynote address at the SQS Software Quality Conference in Dusseldorf, Germany
. This is a major event in the software quality world, with attendees coming from around the European Union to hear about quality and exchange ideas with others. While preparing the content for my keynote, I had several conversations with SQS CEO, Rudolf van Megen. Mr. van Megen has a unique outlook on the quality market and its future direction. During our conversations he told me of the big push in the German market, specifically, to using offshore providers...

Join voke's Theresa Lanowitz at Cognizant's Life Sciences Testing Summit in New Jersey on March 28, 2013.
Join voke's Theresa Lanowitz at Cognizant's Testing Summit in Boston on June 27, 2012. Theresa will be presenting voke's latest research on testing platforms. She will discuss the empowered QA professional in the age of the cloud and mobility. Theresa will also be moderating the knowledge cafe to wrap up the event.

Software quality has a direct impact on the brand image of the company that built and uses the software. Individuals and organizations responsible for the design, development, testing, and delivery of software that is vital to the business and people or those who must effectively manage a variety of challenges pertaining to quality should not miss this event.
Traditional challenges such as time-to-market, reduced costs, and increased customer satisfaction are compounded when cloud and mobile platforms are introduced. Organizations of all types—ISVs, enterprise IT, online providers, embedded systems groups, professional service organizations, device manufacturers, and telcos—must all adopt new software testing strategies to meet the rigorous demands of this changing business environment.
Lifecycle virtualization, development testing, and infrastructure test optimization help to deliver inventive ways of solving these traditional challenges. Today’s modern solutions work and can help to alleviate tactical activities and transform organizations of all types to more strategic teams with better technology and business alignment. In particular, as mobile devices and tablets “consumerize” the business application, quality, time-to-market, and costs all need to be optimized relative to the risks of new initiatives.
In this web seminar, voke's Theresa Lanowitz and Cognizant's James Mondi share examples across industries where strategic quality initiatives have been implemented to drive business outcomes and generate incrementally more business value. This web seminar will help you contextualize the strategies and processes around end-to-end quality with real life experiences and challenges.
- How to build strategies for testing new-age applications as well as age-old computing problems
- Methods to enhance quality and service delivery by establishing the right structure, process streamlining, and by leveraging technology
- Implementation approaches for an end-to-end quality initiative and some of its pitfalls and challenges
