Agile, mobile, cloud and composite applications
Today, HP is announcing new versions of its flagship quality and testing software products to help development and testing teams balance demands for quicker time-to-market, while maintaining application quality to continuously deliver user-centric cloud, composite and mobile applications.
Never before has there been as strong a need for test automation to keep up with the rate of change in new Agile, mobile application scenarios. We believe cracking the code on automation starts with embracing a holistic approach. In this article, we introduce and discuss a testing maturity model that leverages existing assets and skilled resources. And have bit of fun along the way aligning testing maturity with Maslow's hieirarchy of needs. Explore the concept with us and read below...

How do you ease the transition from HP Quality Center (QC) to HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)? We posed this question to Susan Merriman who plays a lead role in HP Software’s global Education team. She helps organizations create effective enablement programmes. Susan shows how one customer, Open Grid, used an innovative learning tool to prepare its people to drive the most value from the company’s investment in HP ALM.
Keep reading to find out how Open Grid is using HP Adoption Readiness Tool (ART) to make the most of its HP ALM deployment.
With more and more test automation inside companies now, why has the automation itself become so complex? It almost rivals the system it is testing.
Here we will talk about the issues with complexity, the pitfalls of this approach and why the ‘Keep it Simply Simple’ style of automation development needs to be resurrected and embraced. Today I want to talk about what we should be asking from our teams for us to begin automation.

With more and more test automation inside companies now, why has automation itself become so complex? It now almost rivals the system it is testing? In this blog series , we will talk about the issues with complexity, the pitfalls of this complex approach and why the ‘Keep it Simply Simple’ style of automation development needs to be resurrected and embraced. Today, let’s look at modularity within Automation Testing
Getting ahead of developing and testing today's composite applications is like getting ahead of urban sprawl… we need help from technology and practices; it can’t be managed with brute force. Agile development and testing teams need to plan for and implement 4 key steps to ensure their composite applications function, perform and are secure.
Keep reading to uncover the four steps to take now to prepare for testing in today’s environment.

How often do you as a project lead stay up late at night knowing that you will be the last one to be told if a project’s timeline is at risk?
Hopefully this post will help you fall asleep easier.
Do you have questions about HP Sprinter? Luckily I have some answers for you. I had a conversation with Michael Deady at HP Discover Frankfurt about manual testing and Sprinter.
If you had the chance to pit your team of coworkers against others in your area of expertise who would you wager on. Or would you prefer your company have a good old-fashioned pep rally before sending your team off for competition.
In my last blog post, we discussed the dangers of being bitten by a snake in the ALM environment. Today I want to discuss additional considerations to avoid snakebites.
I also want to look at what you should include in a snakebite kit. Because you know snakes reside around every corner and hide under rocks (after all snakes cold-blooded as well as some users)
With more and more test automation inside companies now, why has the automation itself become so complex where it almost rivals the system it is testing? Here we will talk about what are the issues with complexity, the pitfalls of this approach and why the ‘Keep it Simply Simple’ style of automation development needs to be resurrected and embraced. This is part one of a series and starts off with ‘Frameworks’.
Inevitably you’ll have users that can’t help but lose, delete or corrupt information. The odds are if you’re a snake wrangler and/or an ALM site administrator that you will get bit at least once in your career if you’re serious about what you do. This article will teach you how to apply tourniquet to the injury and to extricate the poison before it spreads elsewhere.
(As it pertains to ALM)
Sometimes as a system administrator weekends disappear because “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.” (SPOCK, Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan). It is disappointing when this happens, but how do you make it up to your family or in my case a young nine-year-old son.
One common request ALM instructors receive as students walk in the door on the first day of ALM training is, “How can I track application progress as it relates to the project plan?” Understanding the bells and whistles that are available with ALM help students become more productive ALM users.
Integrating new software in your IT environment can be difficult—but the benefits outweigh the challenges. The benefits of Agile manager are especially felt in small and medium businesses—even with their unique challenges.
Creating and managing an Agile project seems to be simple enough. Now, what complexities do you add in a distributed environment that spans six continents? What happens when you include cultural and linguistic barriers—chaos I tell you.
Setting up an agile environment for small to medium companies.
Waiting is a continual challenge for testing teams looking to test and validate composite applications and business processes in Agile time. And, solutions were costly and rare but there is a better way, virtualize it!

If the sky had fallen on the Vivit Lounge today at HP Discover, it could have taken some big movers and shakers in the world of Application Development management—oh, and me too!
What do IDE, Microsoft Word, Excel, application modeling tool, SourceSafe, and a myriad of other preferred IT tools have in common? And why do they make me think of one good Samaritan, a doctor that’s flying home and two slow-moving but well-meaning flight attendants
I wish we could all hang out at the birthplace of Germany's most important writer, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

A lot of us can relate to this: it is relatively easy to stand up tools for application lifecycle management (requirements management, architecture, coding, testing, tracking, and release management). What I find to be the hardest is to take advantage of them all, regardless of the size of the project and the complexity of the organization. Let’s talk about this blog post at HP Discover Frankfurt—session TB1706—where I will exchange my experience on the topic.
