Major transformations of the enterprise IT organizations are underway. For competitive and successful enterprises, IT is an integral part of the business and is treated as such. Factors such as globalization, time-to-market and convergence are the driving forces to bring IT organizations back from the fringe of existence.
Here we examine the trends, emerging technology needs, and processes that are facilitating this necessary and timely transformation.
Software is more complex than ever. Multi-threaded applications are being developed to take advantage of new hardware with multi-core environments. Using technology such as dynamic analysis will allow developers to predictably identify the most egregious errors such as race conditions and deadlocks.
Significant threats from hackers are a 24x7x365 reality and the costs of security breaches can be exponential. And, with the adoption of more distributed environments and cloud platforms, these risks are exacerbated. It is critical now more than ever to move from a defensive approach to security to a well-coordinated offensive plan.
This Market Snapshot report provides real-world data to help organizations justify the investment in operationalizing security through secure operations automation practices and solutions. Operationalizing security through the use of secure operations practices and solutions will help your organization:
Software is ubiquitous, part of the brand promise, and a competitive business differentiator. However,software teams still face classic software engineering conundrums.The constraint of environments is one of these classic software engineering problems that persist in a time of frequent release cycles and global supply chains. Each member of the software lifecycle team requires access to production-equivalent environments for development and testing activities.
Skytap delivers a purpose-built, cloud-based lab solution to accelerate and optimize the software lifecycle. Skytap provides teams with the resources necessary for the precise time needed to perform development or test work. With unconstrained access to environments as close to production as possible for as long as necessary, teams can test as early as possible, identify and remediate defects more quickly, and remove provisioning wait times.
Read this report to learn how Skytap enables software teams to deliver better software, reliably, and predictably while producing more valuable business outcomes.
Software is critical to the success of every business. The line of business and IT organization must be aligned on the enterprise software strategy.
Managing the business of software is a service offered by strategically focused professional services teams. Successfully managing the business of software is an integral part of a successful transformation of an IT organization to be aligned, collaborative, and connected across the entire software supply chain and the line of business.
This report highlights why HP Software ALM Professional Services is a powerful mix of people, process, and technology to help enable a fully optimized enterprise achieve strong business outcomes.

Market Snapshot Report highlights:
The concept of the Cost of Quality, that is, the cost of rework to remove defects, is that the later in the lifecycle a defect is identified, the more expensive it is to resolve the issue. With its shift in requirements ownership from the business to developers who will discover requirements through changes to the source code, the Agile movement is effectively pushing requirements definition to later in the lifecycle. Applying models for the cost of rework to Agile projects reveals the hidden costs of the late definition of requirements. This report provides economic models for evaluating project results and selecting the most appropriate practices.
Join Theresa Lanowitz, analyst from voke, and Jonathan Lindo, CEO and Founder of Replay Solutions for a podcast discussion of current challenges in today's application problem resolution processes and suggestions for how application development teams can dramatically shorten the process of fixing defects to speed time-to-market. This session will give practical guidance on how your application team can:
Replay Solutions provides application problem resolution products that dramatically shorten the process of fixing defects to speed time-to-market. ReplayDIRECTOR functions like a DVR for enterprise applications - recording all inputs and events affecting your application while it is running, then replaying those steps to execute the code in exactly the same way and reproduce the error without needing to reproduce the environment the defect occurred in.
In 2012, voke published economic models to evaluate the hidden costs of software projects. Our key findings show that since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2009, the average cost of software projects is rising dramatically, this is in spite of smaller teams working shorter durations. At the same time, rework costs remain high or unknown and high profile software failures continue to make headlines daily.
Organizations must understand how defects create a hidden cost of rework in every software project and how these costs manifest differently in Agile and Non-Agile projects. Given the impact of catastrophic software failures on the brand, we should be witnessing a movement toward increased quality, not a reactionary call for more testing after the software has shipped.
Software engineering professionals are familiar with the concept of Cost of Quality, or more specifically, the cost involved with removing defects, essentially the cost of “rework.” The premise of this concept is that the later in the lifecycle a defect is identified, the more expensive it is to resolve the issue.
Most importantly, understand the business risks of prioritizing schedule to the exclusion of quality and ultimately cost. Empower your test organization to protect your brand from catastrophic failures.
Register now for this 45-minute Webinar and live Q&A featuring voke's Theresa Lanowitz and Parasoft. They'll discuss the challenges imposed by the unpredictability of the Internet and the dramatic increase of IoT application interconnectedness. We'll touch on important requirements for the IoT space, including code analysis, testing (unit, load, and performance), and service virtualization.

How Virtualization is Enabling Self-Service to Transform the Global Lifecycle
Date: Wednesday, July 23, 2008
Time: 2:00 PM Eastern; 11:00 AM Pacific
Banks have ATMs; grocery stores have self checkout; airlines have self check-in. All of these self-service approaches provide convenience for customers and deliver ROI for the companies that offer them. Self-service has appeared within the corporate environment as well. Many companies are offering self-service access to computing resources to their business constituents. This increases the ability to provide infrastructure and services more efficiently and use resources in more strategic ways to benefit the business.
Cutting edge IT services are now available through a self-service model thanks to virtualization. Virtualization lets companies pool IT resources and provide them as needed throughout the entire global lifecycle.
Join analyst Theresa Lanowitz, founder of voke Inc., for this informative session where you will learn about self-service IT and:
