Current Tech Trends: Attack of the Drones!

I recently purchased a set of Star Wars drones and it got me thinking about all the practical and impractical uses for IoT devices. Drone technology is constantly evolving as new innovation and big investment is bringing more advanced drones to the market every few months.

The complexity of these perceived simplistic products is amazing. You have physical components that start with lightweight composite materials to radar/positioning, sensors and circuit boards and finally software or the brain that controls all aspects of the drone.

What could go wrong? Well… everything could. For industrial use and military grade applications, the results can be disastrous. Quality becomes the critical component of the production lifecycle. The obvious first step is to make sure all components work according to requirement specifications. Do all the components behave correctly?

Software QA Needs Changing in Connected World

We expect connected devices to simply work. As more “things” adopt connectivity – thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT) – there is an evolving need for quality assurance (QA) and software test management, as development and QA departments face new challenges.

QA processes must be implemented throughout the entire product development lifecycle.

Polarion QA accelerates the ability to design, coordinate and track test activities using a single, collaborative QA environment. For organizations that face regulatory scrutiny, you’ll have the ability to pass any audit or compliance test with full project traceability.

To register for the “Software QA & Testing in a Connected World” webinar, please click here.

During the webinar, you’ll hear about the following topics:

  • Manage quality of code from cradle to grave
  • Leverage your existing Test Resources and artifacts
  • Jump start your projects with ready to use templates
  • Easily manage all defects, issues and enhancements from one platform
  • Seamlessly unify with legacy test automation tools and processes
  • Linking code to test cases and requirements

Polarion QA makes it possible for QA managers, test managers, and testers are able to efficiently design, coordinate, and track all test management activities in a single solution. Design your testing process specifically for your needs, with test cases controlled throughout the lifecycle.

Here are some of the benefits of using Polarion QA:

Evolution of DevOps and ALM

There certainly is a continual convergence of industrial products, processes, and embedded software. The explosion of IoT devices has only accelerated a collision between software and quality.

We see more media reports about it, and what is interesting is that even traditional industries are facing a deluge of bad press from product recalls and delays — such as the massive inventory of software defects for the controversial US military F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program, bank customers unable to access online accounts, and auto airbag sensor glitches all resulting from software issues.

Polarion Software Helps Athletes Perform: Success Story

Biotechnology company Cercacor found Polarion Software to be the ideal “solution” for helping internal teams, with Cercacor choosing both Polarion ALM and Polarion QA to accelerate its business needs.

Cercacor looked for a more efficient way to create and manage QA activities. The quality assurance group previously used spreadsheets and documents for testing activities, but there was a need for a central repository, more transparency, and traceability. Using Polarion QA allowed for the team to avoid largely needing to alter internal processes, in addition to being able to track testing activity workflow.
