Low-code’s a rapidly rising sector, but will it disappear?

Every week, we have one or two “briefing days” in which we schedule as many as eight one-hour discussions with various technology vendors in our broad coverage area that spans everything from cognitive to customer experience platforms — and everything in between. It’s always fascinating to see the mix of companies we talk to week-to-week. … continue reading

USF goes all in on low-code

What if 70 percent of the people developing apps for your organization never studied computer science? Such is the case at the University of South Florida (USF) where low-code development is central to its development strategy. The impetus for the switch from traditional development to low-code started five years ago, when it became apparent that … continue reading

Low-code for mobile: Toys or tools?

Mobile developers tend to be skeptical about the effectiveness of low-code tools when they know exactly what native iOS and Android development takes. In fact, some developers are so turned off by low-code platforms that the very mention of them triggers a passionate response. “Low-code is bad enough, but low-code for mobile is even worse. … continue reading

No-code/low-code: Not your dad’s RAD

The earliest seeds of application development by business users (aka “citizen developers) can be traced back to the days in which waterfall was the norm. Like today, the business wanted capabilities available sooner than developers were able to deliver. While development methodologies and tools have advanced significantly in the last three decades, the core concepts … continue reading

Low-code/no-code development heats up

Digital transformation is driving higher demand for low-code/no-code tools. As more business tasks and processes are translated into software, the pace of business is accelerating further. Without low-code and no-code development, organizations are going to find it increasingly difficult to keep pace with their competitors. “If we look at basic issues companies have now, what … continue reading

Tools of the continuous testing trade

Testing has always required tools to be effective. However, the tools continue to evolve with many of them becoming faster, more intelligent and easier to use. Continuous testing (CT) necessarily recognizes the importance of testing throughout the software delivery life cycle. However, given the rapid pace of CT, tests need to run in parallel with … continue reading

Who owns continuous testing?

Continuous testing (CT) has been the missing piece of the Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) movement, but that’s changing out of necessity. While organizations say they’re “delivering value to customers” at an ever-accelerating pace, customers may disagree with the definition of “value” when software quality doesn’t keep pace. In fact, software quality may actually decrease as … continue reading

Continuous testing at every step

Continuous integration (CI), continuous testing (CT) and continuous delivery (CD) should go hand-in-hand, but CT is still missing from the CI/CD workflow in most organizations. As a result, software teams eventually reach an impasse when they attempt to accelerate release cycles further with CI/CD. What they need to get to from both a mindset and … continue reading

Century-old company prioritizes continuous testing

Companies in just about every industry are being disrupted by digital natives. To stay competitive, old companies must adapt, which can be a painful transformation. Moving to Agile is tough enough. Now, more businesses have adopted DevOps, continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment (CD), albeit at different speeds. Software testing at Lincoln Financial Group is … continue reading

Why continuous testing is so important

Organizations continue to modernize their software development and delivery practices to minimize the impact of business disruption and stay competitive. Many of them have adopted continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD), but continuous testing (CT) tends to be missing. When CT is absent, software delivery speed and code quality suffer. In short, CT is … continue reading
