In the last few years, businesses have changed the way they protect data.
Studies show they’re abandoning traditional backup and recovery in favor of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS).1 With DRaaS, businesses enjoy the luxury of keeping a replica of their data hosted at a remote site that they can fail over to in an emergency—without bearing any of the infrastructure costs or maintenance responsibilities. All infrastructure and maintenance is the responsibility of the provider. Gartner predicts that global DRaaS revenue will reach $3.4 billion by 2019. The firm cited several reasons for the shift:
One way to shift testing practices earlier in your software lifecycle is by using multi-layered visual models to specify requirements in a way where all ambiguity is inherently removed. With unambiguous and complete requirements, developers introduce less defects into their code and manual test cases, automated test scripts and required test data can be automatically generated based on the requirement, without manual intervention.
In a series of articles Paul Gerrard, a testing guru and consultant, discusses a range of testing topics. Test models are fundamental to testing and, in this article, Paul talks about the art of creating and using models. If testers are “shifting left,” pairing with developers or at least working more closely with developers, testers (and developers) need to be able to create models, learn how to articulate and share them, and support better collaboration.

If you work in DevOps or software QA, you likely already know why
automated software testing is essential for quality control to keep
pace with continuous delivery. Automated testing delivers faster
results and more thorough coverage, and enables shift-left testing
for earlier detection of bugs.
Yet the issue of how to approach automated testing remains difficult
for many QA teams to solve. A range of obstacles makes it challenging to begin automating software tests, or to increase the extent of test automation beyond the basics.
In the midst of an overwhelming amount of disruption taking place in the retail banking industry, a clear path to success has emerged. Banks that want to continue to gain and retain loyal customers must make it easier to bank with them.
According to a survey that included 760 different banks and credit unions, the most important priority for 2017 and beyond is the removal of friction from the customer journey.1
To clarify, today’s customer journey includes both the customer experience at local branch locations as well as their experience while interacting with websites, mobile apps, smart watches, and anything else that is connected to the Internet.
