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.

The Need to Rethink the WAN


Technological advances have evolved at an exponential rate over recent decades—we’ve seen the advent of the Internet, cloud computing, virtualization, and several other technologies. But the wide area network (WAN) technologies that are currently in use in most branch offices have changed little since the 1990s.

Business environments today are experiencing unprecedented growth and change, and IT departments are losing visibility and control. Traditional WAN technologies are a mismatch for modern branch networks that need to be up and running quickly. The demand for adaptability, awareness of costs, and the need to run and monitor business-critical processes are indicating the necessity for a new WAN technology paradigm.

New WAN services based on the latest technologies have not been deployed by traditional service providers, primarily because they require an initial financial outlay which companies are not prepared to make. But they are poised to succeed multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), and are the most viable alternative for supporting application performance while dealing with increased network traffic and the connectivity demands of cloud computing and mobile access.

In this white paper, the characteristics of WAN technology and the limitations of traditional WAN technology, including complexity, are explored. This paper also discusses some new approaches, such as a hybrid WAN, which are better suited to supporting fast-changing business and technology environments.

How Health Benefit Exchanges Will Change the Business Landscape in the Health Care Space


The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which aims to create state-based health benefit exchanges in the US, calls for a shake-up of the health care sector. The focus for technology companies addressing the health benefits exchange opportunity needs to be around the integration of stakeholders on a common platform, ensuring quick and easy access to medical records, patient data, insurance service providers and products, automated physician entries, and payment channels.

The Future of the Manufacturing Supply Chain—Networked, Mobile, and Collaborative


As we move through 2015, the subject of the future of the supply chain has come back into focus. What does the future supply chain look like, and what do we expect some of the essential characteristics to be? Although this requires a degree of speculation, there are also some trends and technologies that clearly are having, and will continue to have, an enormous impact on the supply chain:

  • The next-generation supply chain will be a networked supply chain that will sit at the center of three lobes—demand aware, supply visible, and innovation networked.
  • Mobility, as well as modern mobile tools, continues to transform the way supply chains conduct their business.
  • Collaboration, via traditional or modern social media tools, is a critical capability for the future of the supply chain.
The ability to fully integrate the demand, supply, and innovation aspects of the supply chain into one networked entity is both exciting and unnerving. Data identification, capture, and analysis play a huge role in this future supply chain, and unless manufacturers plan to add employees (which we can assure you, they do not), the only practical solution is the deployment of technology solutions. In this white paper we discuss the importance of networks, mobility, and collaboration and the role we believe they must play in the future of the supply chain and the benefits that can accrue.
