Stickyminds' Cameron Philipp-Edmonds recently interviewed Wayne Ariola (Parasoft Chief Strategy Officer and co-author of Continuous Testing) about how Continuous Testing provides a real-time, objective assessment of the business risks associated with an application under development and allows both business and technical managers to make better trade-off decisions between release scope, time, and quality. The interview covered topics such as: The relationship between risks and Continuous Testing Common misperceptions about Continuous Testing Who should care about Continuous Testing How we are all in a new era of testing Why now is the best time in the history of software to be a tester The following is a brief excerpt from the interview...

Applying a unified service virtualization initiative has proven to be a powerful tool for assisting organizations to accelerate the SDLC: An organization has a single version of the truth, removing the risks created by having independent brittle stubs. Service virtualization introduces an environment-based approach, allowing the entire organization to access common artifacts that represent critical functionality... (more)

What’s Killing Software Testers on Halloween? By @Parasoft | @CloudExpo

On Halloween day, let's take a quick look at some of the top things that are killing software testers... Accelerated Release Cycles In response to today's demand for speed and "Continuous Everything," the software delivery conveyer belt keeps moving faster and faster.  Considering that software testing has long been a thorn in the side of the software delivery process, it's unreasonable to expect that simply trying to speed up an already-troubled quality process will achieve the desired results.
