running tests  Testing Methodology Part Two: Running Tests and Getting Approval Introduction Before any system can be completely implemented on a production computer, analysts and programmers working on the system must be able to unequivocally state that the programs work exactly as they were designed to work and that any errors or mistakes found in data processed by the system will be handled properly.

A Guide to Software Test Tools


Testing a system well is harder than building it. In the face of new risks introduced by the ever-increasing complexity of software and hardware, test tools may be your only practical way to be confident that you've got just what you paid for. From gathering the initial requirements to supporting the system after it has been deployed, test tools are available to support all phases of a project. This article looks at the ways that test tools can be used to design, code, and (of course) test a system.

SCE Leaders Partner To See Beyond Their Portfolio Part Three: Challenges and User Recommendations


One of the biggest challenges facing IT departments today is still unlocking data and processes from a plethora of heterogeneous applications running on different technologies and platforms, from mainframe to Web application servers. Since most SCE solutions involve a complex flow of transactions across a company's information systems network, users need simple to use, graphical tools to help them manage these transaction flows and quickly respond to problems.

Beyond ERP - Managing Business Performance


When your company’s ERP is implemented and running smooth (or maybe not) it’s now time to give your c-level management a bird’s eye view of how their company is running. C-managers are often not at ease with even the simplest use of computers. But in this information age those that don’t USE and LEARN from their corporate data put themselves, and worse, their company’s livelihood at risk because they may not know the pulse or health of their business.

Oracle and Microsoft Partner in the Cloud (and the Sky Hasn’t Fallen)


These days, when the compromise-hating politicians with extremist ideologies in the US Congress are again threatening to bring the US economy (and perhaps that of the entire world) to the brink of credit default, maybe even a financial systems meltdown, it is astounding to see fierce IT archrivals finding common ground.

Wee Wonder Wedges to a Mainframe Analyst's Aid!


Mainframes store almost 70% of the world’s data, and millions of applications are running on mainframes to process it. The tasks of a developer in a time-sharing option (TSO)/interactive system productivity facility (ISPF) environment can be mundane but time-consuming. This paper addresses how an organization that maintains mainframe applications can increase productivity by developing some simple tools in a TSO/ISPF environment.

What’s All This Benchmark Stuff, Anyway?


Vendors love to quote benchmarks in their product literature, press releases, and any place they think someone will use the numbers to make a buying decision. But what do the benchmarks mean, and which ones really matter?
