Top 10 Development Testing Resources of 2014: Static Analysis, Security, Unit Testing and More

DevelopmentTestingAgile and lean methodologies are undeniably here to stay. As organizations look to accelerate the SDLC, the entire team has to contribute to quality. That's where Development Testing comes into play. For both enterprise and embedded development, organizations are increasingly seeking out ways to eliminate the business risk of faulty software by consistently applying software quality practices such as static analysis, unit testing, and code coverage analysis throughout the SDLC.

In case you missed them, here's a recap of the most popular Development Testing resources in 2014:

  1. PC Maker Enhances the Enterprise User Experience w/ Development Testing: A leading PC company wants to reduce field-reported defects for "preloaded" software. Learn how they are using defect prevention practices such as static analysis to accelerate delivery while ensuring high reliability.

  2. How to Improve Software Quality & Shorten Time to Market with PIE: In this on-demand webinar, learn how process intelligence and Parasoft's Process Intelligence Engine (PIE) addresses the gaps that even the best software quality tools can't resolve.

  3. DDJ's Best Testing Tools of 2014: Parasoft Development Testing Platform: "For those companies desiring a comprehensive solution that covers nearly all aspects of testing throughout the SDLC, rather than a series of point products they have to integrate manually, Parasoft delivers a platform that is hard to beat."

  4. Real World Static Analysis Boot Camp: This two-part webinar explores how to turn static analysis from a disruptive task into an integrated process that boosts software quality and team productivity across the SDLC.

  5. Why a Development Testing Platform Is Essential for Accelerating the SDLC: Since software quality has traditionally been a “time-boxed” exercise, it's foolish to expect that accelerating the SDLC will magically yield better results from a quality perspective. Learn how a Development Testing Platform helps organizations accelerate the delivery of top-quality applications.

  6. Medical Device Software Validation & Compliance: A Case Study: Discusses how Inomed was able to rapidly automate their established processes for IEC 62304 medical device software compliance—as well as introduce full requirements traceability. This significantly reduces the work required to achieve and sustain the mandated medical device software compliance certification.

  7. [INFOGRAPHIC] Is Software Development Meeting Expectations? Software is increasingly critical to an organization's competitiveness, but the applications being developed consistently meet business stakeholder expectations only 17% of the time. What's the problem...and what's the secret to ensuring that expectations are met?

  8. Your Guide Through the SWAMP: Avoiding Predators in a Murky World: In this on-demand webinar, Parasoft and the SWAMP discuss strategies for driving software assurance within your organization. Learn how to add a few processes to your software build in order to make it more secure.

  9. How Static Analysis Helps You Get Started with DevOps: Learn why static analysis is the ideal development testing practice for enabling DevOps.

  10. To Accelerate Continuous Delivery, Shift Left Static Analysis: The bane of any Continuous Delivery strategy is testing. You can have wildly fast builds...completely automated Continuous Integration and Delivery... but if your Continuous Testing slows your Agile-ity to a crawl, it’s all for naught.
