7 Best Practices for Release Management | IBM

The effort it takes to get an application from development to production can be a long and painful process, but it doesn’t have to be. Proper release management practices can ease the pain in deployment processes and get the applications deployed quickly and successfully.

This white paper will discuss best practices for improving a release process and strengthening release management. Once the practices are in order, the process can be enabled to keep up with the pace of Agile, and reduce the risks associated with rapid deployments.

Mobile Test Automation: The Tool Landscape | Gallop

To meet the demands of faster releases and quality outcomes, mobile test automation is essential. 

The tool landscape is becoming quite robust, and there are several factors to consider: a variety of tool features, various operating systems that are supported (or not), and device compatibility, to name a few.

Mobile Performance Testing | Gallop

The responsiveness of mobile apps is crucial, making the stakes high for software teams and testers to deliver quality mobile apps that are fast and reliable, no matter the load. 

Principles and Practices of DevOps | Skytap

Confusion endures about not only what DevOps is, but where to start (and possibly end) with it. In this note, we introduce a model of commonly associated practices to guide organizations with their DevOps journeys.

Load & Performance Testing in Production | Neotys

One of the biggest challenges in testing is often the testing environment itself. Although ideally load and performance testing activities are done in a preproduction or a QA environment, many projects don’t have the time or budget to recreate the production environment for test. 

Load Testing at the Speed of Agile | Neotys

This white paper outlines the challenges of load and performance testing in an agile environment and offers key, proven best practices for implementing continuous load testing in your agile projects.

Testing managers, agile practitioners, and anyone participating in agile or “agile-like” development teams will benefit from this in-depth white paper. You will learn:

Mobile Load Testing Challenges | Neotys

Although load testing mobile apps shares many best practices with web app performance testing, there are critical nuances and unique use cases to consider. 

How to Ensure Personal Data is Protected when Producing Test Data | Grid Tools

Most companies spend a lot of resources securing their production databases—the lifeblood of their organizations. 

Unfortunately, many test and development teams do not have the processes and tools in place to completely protect their test data.

The Top Ten Misconceptions About Automated Test Data Creation | Grid Tools

Most testers and developers are either masking production data—a practice with a high risk of data leakage—or creating test data by hand. Yet there are automated tools to create test data, so why aren’t we using them?

Download this revealing white paper to discover ten misconceptions people have about automated test data creation, along with the truth behind each reason. You’ll learn that:

Agility in the Cloud: How Dev/Test Teams Increase Velocity While Reducing Defects | Skytap

An agile mindset and agile practices help developers and testers shorten release cycles, reduce defects, and deliver more value faster. However, many teams still struggle to acquire, provision, deploy, and manage the dev/test computing environments and resources they need.

This technical white paper from Skytap explores how enterprises are employing cloud-based computing environments to remove impediments to their success due to resource and environment constraints.

Deployment Automation Basics | IBM

Manual and scripted deployment processes—whether Dev to Test/QA or to Production—are fraught with potential errors and slow down release cycles. New technologies are available today to completely—or almost completely—automate your organization’s software deployments across all environments and for many types of systems.

Download this technical white paper to learn how developers, testers, QA teams, and operations departments are eliminating manual errors and replacing undocumented, insecure scripts with fully automated, traceable, and repeatable processes.
