Testing the cloud?

October 25, 2010 Leave a comment

One of my favourite subjects of late is how do you test your cloud?

It’s always been a challenge to get testing more involved in the development process and tooling has come along way to making this possible. But what happens when you add the cloud to the mix?

I’ve had a few chats with Danny Crone from nFocus about this in relation to Azure and was really excited to see they’ve got an event on the very subject …

The only problem is that this takes place tomorrow afternoon in Reading so I can’t make it …

I only hope that there’s a repeat or that they share some of the presentations …

This sits well with the ALM Health Check Service that inTHiNK is looking to offer in the coming weeks – more on this soon!

Software Security: have we nailed it?

October 14, 2010 Leave a comment

Software security has and continues to be a top line issue for most organisations, yet software and IT teams still continue to produce and deploy insecure code and applications with serious consequences for the brand, reputation and, of course finances of their customers and their own organisation.

Creative Intellect in association with the IASA have recently launched a survey that seeks to understand the security challenges across the development cycle and look to see if it is handled better by large or small projects, organisations and if there is a difference across industries.

I thoroughly recommend you taking part in the survey. All respondents will get a free copy of the full report and will be entered into a draw to win a free half day consulting session with Creative Intellect Consulting Ltd in the field of software delivery and application lifecycle management.
