Effective Competition Depends on Continuous Delivery of Quality Software In today’s application economy every company is a software company, no matter what industry it is in:
• Shipping companies depend on logistics software to efficiently route packages, arrange drivers and automate warehouses.
• Retail companies rely on software to manage inventory, engage with customers online and to give in-store associates the tools they need to answer customer questions on the spot.
• Marketing firms lean on applications to gather consumer data and parse it, automate communication with prospects and effectively manage advertising campaigns. The examples are endless.
The point is that in order to compete today, every business must be able to quickly build and tweak software to adjust to always evolving market demands. Ultimately, business success depends on faster development iterations while still maintaining the high quality of service expected by customers, stakeholders and end users.

In today’s transformational era, businesses globally turn to digital technologies and new competitive models that take a holistic approach to business activities, processes and competencies to increase competitive differentiation. Digital transformation enables businesses to be more agile, people-orientated, innovative, customer-centric and efficient. By its very nature, digital transformation is a journey that encompasses the entire IT ecosystem, from end device to data center infrastructure.
Today’s businesses are rapidly transforming to prepare for the changes taking place in the global economy. Companies of all sizes can benefit from tools that automate the deployment and ongoing maintenance of server environments. Put another way, in today’s digital economy, where users need access to intelligible data faster, IT organizations must employ tools that automate the delivery of IT as a Service (ITaaS).

Testing is critical to the success of any application. In fact,
your software is only as good as the testing team behind it
and their ability to identify bugs before they find their way
into production. Practically speaking, that means that
building and nurturing an effective testing team is mission
critical. But, of course, doing so is a lot easier said
That's because to be successful, today’s testing teams need
to be cross-functional, efficient, and focused on the right
things. They also have to be fully bought in and worthy of
deep trust. As a result, finding the right candidates can be a
challenge, so you have to get creative.
Not only that, to attract and retain the best talent, you need
to keep them motivated by giving them ample opportunities
to learn and advance their career, while not weighing them
down with the burden of time-consuming and unnecessary
administrative tasks. Instead, you want to equip your team
with the right tools to enable and empower them.

In a case of “if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it,”
some software project failures occur because of a lack of
traceability — that is, an incomplete record of
documentation around software quality assurance efforts.
The lack of traceability has a significant impact on QA
testing effectiveness and meeting strategic goals. However,
with optimal traceability, testing becomes more efficient
and enables collaboration throughout the software
development lifecycle, as well as between product owners
and organization leaders.
Although AI and big data have delivered advances in technology these past years which make remediation more manageable and more efficient, it’s important ensure that the solution you select, meets your particular requirements, addresses and meets your needs. Some jurisdictions require technology dealing with certain types of data to be hosted on-site; data hosting, exchange, protection and privacy can all affect the choice of solution or vendor. It’s common for companies to call out these specifics in their RFPs. Other considerations include the level of precision and recall (e.g., the accuracy) required to meet project needs, the setup time for a system, its implementation and the ability to support globally dispersed team members.
Traditional PC lifecycle management is an inefficient and expensive process that will cost your business both time and money.

Better health care at lower costs, for everyone – how do health care providers get there? Understanding the gaps in patient care, patient needs, and the geographic distribution of the patient population are important elements to consider when making decisions about improving the quality of care and reducing its costs.
To effectively analyze gaps in patient care, the data needs to be in a single place or system. However, in many organizations, data is spread across a myriad of spreadsheets and database systems. Data not organized for visual exploration and coherent analysis isn’t useful for decision making. Hence the need for visually appealing and scalable analytical tools to help organizations be more efficient, effective and economically successful.
As your organization struggles with growing volumes and sources of data, increasingly
complex regulatory requirements, and pressure to do more with fewer resources, SAS
