The Wizardry of Business Process Management - Part 4
Part 1 of this blog series started a lengthy discussion about the value proposition and parts-and-parcels of business process management (BPM), with an ensuing

cobol testing  all programming languages (e.g., COBOL , C++ , Java, etc.) are procedurally based. The “Pro” in “Pro-Dex” describes how Pega’s Process Commander rules engine captures and automates procedural elements using friendly forms and user constructs that support agility. But businesses are also driven by declarative process executions. The “Dex” in the “Pro-Dex” approach is accomplished by declaring how we want things to happen, without necessarily weaving each declaration into every process.

Software Test Tools

Tools exist to support software testing at all stages of a project. Some vendors offer an integrated suite that will support testing and development throughout a project's life, from gathering requirements to supporting the live system. Some vendors concentrate on a single part of that life cycle. The software test tools knowledge base provides functional criteria you might expect from a testing tool, the infrastructure that supports the tool, and an idea of the market position of the vendor.

Six Misconceptions about Data Migration


A truly successful data migration project involves not only an understanding of how to migrate the data from a technical standpoint, but an understanding of how that data will be used and its importance to the operation of the enterprise.

cobol testing  of software code in Cobol in order to get some of the data loaded into the migration tables in the correct format. Only one of the company’s IT staff knew Cobol, and working alone, he could not develop all the coding within the time frame required to meet our implementation schedule. Situations like this require either the training of other existing in-house staff, or that the process be outsourced. Each of these options had its own unique costs and benefits. Management faced with this situation must Read More

Function Points: Are They Really the Right Unit of Measure for Software Sizing?


Function points (FPs) are the most popular unit of measure for measuring the size of software. But because FPs were developed in the 1970s, are they not now outdated for today’s event-oriented programming and multi-tiered software architectures?

From then on and until end-user computing (EUC) and graphical user interface (GUI) software came to be, FPs were the right unit of measure for sizing the software. That was a good two decades ago—a very long time in the computer field indeed. Since then, FP methodology has become so popular, there is now an association called the International Function Point User Group ( IFPUG ). IFPUG champions FP methodology, and it conducts examinations to offer Read More

Requirement Traceability-A Tester's Approach


The value of a requirement traceability matrix is in its ability to track and monitor each requirement to be incorporated into the customer's product throughout the entire process of product development, and to detect defects at the earliest stage possible.
