Today's test data management (TDM) solutions force teams to work with compromised data sets, and push testing to too late in the software development lifecycle. The end result is rework, delayed releases, and costly bugs that cripple production systems. Furthermore, prevailing approaches to test data management - including subsetting, synthetic data, shared environments, and standalone masking--represent flawed solutions that fail across one or more key dimensions.

Scale events — like online sales and digital product launches — present great revenue opportunities, but they also present large risks to your business. Whether you are a retailer preparing for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, or a digital vendor launching a new service, your brand is both at its most visible and its most vulnerable during these scale events. Many more customers visit your site over a short period of time, raising the potential for resource constraints and discovery of software bugs. Information about issues spreads quickly via social media and news outlets. And, your customers typically spend more per transaction, so every lost order has a greater negative impact on your bottom line.
Site reliability engineering (SRE) can help you better prepare for scale events through an iterative cycle of data-driven improvement.

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.

Enterprises and users continue to be concerned about mobile apps and mobile malware because they have been trained by legacy antivirus software packages. Look for a known malware file and remove it.
The issue with this logic on mobile devices is the mobile operating systems evolve and add features very rapidly. The mobile operating systems add millions of lines of code in a year and therefore introduce unintended consequences, bugs and vulnerabilities. In 2017, there were more CVEs registered for Android and iOS than all of 2016 and 2015 combined. In 2017 there were 1229 CVEs awarded. Over half of these CVEs that received scores of 7 or greater indicated that the vulnerabilities are severe and exploitable. This trend is expected to continue as the mobile operating systems mature and more features are added.

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.
