Agile teams report the lowest rate of measuring non-functional requirements.
What does this mean for the evolution of quality in this era of Continuous
To explore how the rise of SDLC acceleration trends such as Agile, DevOps,
and Continuous Delivery are impacting software quality, Parasoft conducted a
survey about measuring and monitoring non-functional requirements (NFRs).
Here's a glimpse at what we discovered and what it means for the evolution of
quality in this era of Continuous Everything...
Explore the 10 most popular continuous testing resources of 2015, including
Forrester and Gartner research, interviews, infographics, an ebook, and more.
With today's DevOps and "Continuous Everything" initiatives, teams need the
ability to assess the risks associated with a release candidate-instantly and
continuously. Maybe that's why 2015 seemed to be all about Continuous
Testing, from conferences, to analyst research, to the blogosphere.
Here's a look at what Continuous Testing articles from the Parasoft Resource
Center piqued the most interest in 2015:

Why did Comcast explore service virtualization?
There were two primary issues that led Comcast to explore service

With today's interconnected applications, a complete and realistic test
environment is nearly impossible to stage. However, without reliable access
to a complete and reliable test environment, testing is delayed or curtailed.
The result is that organizations risk:
Brand erosion as faulty software drives away customers Delays in time to
market which diminish market share Exposure to legal liability associated
with application failure (security, reliability, performance)
That's where service virtualization comes into play.

To accelerate application release cycles, KPN needed to address a critical
bottleneck in the testing process. Their end-to-end test scenarios interacted
with dependencies controlled by other divisions and external entities, and
gaining access to the required dependencies was a slow and frustrating
process. Due to these test environment access constraints, testing efforts
were regularly delayed and cut short.
“Using Parasoft Service Virtualization to simulate the behavior of these
dependencies, KPN can now test earlier, faster, and more
completely—accelerating time to market whil... (more)
