The format was informal with lots of attendee engagement.

In today’s hyper competitive environment companies are always looking at ways to reduce cost while maintaining quality. Two key variables can greatly influence these goals: process and software. Great software testing tools and processes are now converging in a way that not only helps organizations start testing earlier, but also reduces the amount of defects that are injected into the software. This means that you can not only test earlier, you can also actually test less. The bottom line for the business is that the organization can go to market significantly faster — with more innovative, better-quality deliverables.
Join us online Thursday January 16th and learn how to improve your QA and Testing processes, reduce costs and complete your projects faster. (more…)
Recently I did a webinar on “Big Data Testing” explaining the concepts of Big Data and the deficiencies with current testing tools such as MS Excel for managing and analyzing large amounts of test data. There has been a tremendous amount of hype surrounding both the challenges and the opportunities, however business requirements such as time constraints, regulatory demands and competitive pressures are forcing organizations to deal with the continual “datafication” of things. This does not exclude software testing and in fact adds more focus on our ability to handle and interpret test data in a timely fashion while providing meaningful results. Sound challenging? Well it is and many of us are not adequately prepared for this data onslaught. In this new whitepaper “Big Data Testing” I discuss the concepts behind big data and why current QA processes and tools may not meet the needs and challenges of a digital world.

This year’s POP Challenge was yet again a great success with over a dozen high quality submissions. For the 2013 challenge we made the event more exciting by creating 2 distinct categories – 1. free extensions and 2. paid extensions.
It was very difficult in determining the clear winners and ultimately, the biggest winner is really the entire Polarion User Community, who benefit from the ongoing progress of and contributions to Polarion extensions.
That’s right: due to an overwhelming request by our user community, the 2013 POP Challenge has been extended to September 30, 2013. We have had several great submissions to his year’s challenge; so don’t miss your opportunity to enter.
