Five Reasons to Shift Your Focus from Coding to Testing Digital transformation leaders have poured tons of money and effort into coding in recent years. And with good reason.

But if your investments in testing haven't kept pace with your investments in coding, you'll lose. Here's why: Reason #1: Functional testing is one of your worst DevOps bottlenecks.

Digital Crossfire | @DevOpsSummit @CAinc @Aruna13 #DevOps #API #AI #ML

Brand owners are caught in a digital crossfire. From one direction comes intense competitive pressure to innovate or to at least follow very, very quickly. From the precisely opposite direction comes the potentially existential threat of an app very publicly flopping or - even worse - being very publicly revealed to jeopardize the customer's well-being. Either way, you lose brand value in a social marketplace where brand is your primary currency. What's a brand owner to do? Auto-da-fé The car industry offers an excellent case in point. One day, carmakers are climbing all over e... (more)
