Lack of communication is often cited as the biggest problem Business have when implementing DevOps. This would be communication between co-located teams where the team just doesn’t talk, teams across geographies where time zones come into play, even where the IT and Business just will not discuss things. Indeed, there are many places where a lack of communication can cause DevOps to fail.
On July 23, 2019, Antony Edwards, COO of Eggplant, and Diego Lo Giudice, VP Principal Analyst at Forrester, conducted a webinar on “Putting Intelligence into your Continuous Testing.”
Daniel Priestly points to “Illusion of Limited Resources” as the number one limiting factor to holding you back from becoming a Key Person of Influence. It is the same fallacy that holds organizations back from progress.
We are in a Digital Testing Epoch. Are you ready?
Earlier this month, we were delighted to learn that our Digital Automation Intelligence Suite took top honors in the Best DevOps Tool category in the competitive SIIA CODiE Awards. The awards are the only such program in the tech industry where peers are responsible for vetting and scoring the submissions, meaning that, as the organizers’ state, each win “serves as incredible market validation for a product’s innovation, vision, and overall industry impact.”
Yupp, you’ve guessed it, HTTP. HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP/HTTPS) is the go-to language for IoT devices, in that it’s the protocol used when devices talk to each other via the internet. I know what you are thinking: what about everything we’ve heard about security in the news? Surely there is nothing more important than security in IoT?

A year ago, we brought you Performance Matters, our one-day conference in London. Alongside web performance topics and case studies, we talked about intelligent test automation, big data, and how we saw these worlds converging.
A lot has happened in a year. And at Eggplanet, this year’s Eggplant conference in London on 6 June, we have a lot more to show you.
We live in a digital world, with software permeating every aspect of our everyday lives. And businesses are waking up to the fact that the quality of that software is critical to their very existence.
This is where Continuous Quality Meets Business Outcomes, and it’s the theme of our inaugural Eggplanet Europe on 6 June, London.
"The quality of your company’s software has a direct impact on the quality of your company’s financial results. You know it. Management knows it. And the importance of quality will only continue to grow with the need for 24x7 operations, high availability requirements, aggressive service-level agreements, and the need to roll out innovative new web-based services."
This was the first paragraph of a paper I wrote in 2005 about how to build your organization around a Testing Center of Excellence.

Reasons include faster release cycles, more complex technology, and more technically astute end-users, with the result that QA lost sight of who was really using their applications.
