Despite all your planning, the release made it to market with some significant bugs, and your company has had to run damage
control. Now you’re getting questions about what went wrong, and before you know it, the blame game is in full force, with your
developers and testers pointing fingers at one another.
So what happened? Whose fault was it really? And what can you do better next time? The truth of the matter is, at a time when
the stakes for software development are higher than ever (and only continuing to rise), the blame game simply isn’t going to cut
it. And if you’re operating in a true DevOps environment, the finger pointing should never even happen in the first place.
Many organizations consider optimization only for their largest or most challenging business problems, often utilizing a small number of Operations Research professionals.

The complexity and high level of integration inherent in SAP environments can make development especially challenging and increase the time required to bring solutions to market. Persistent development and test challenges include unavailable systems, inability to accurately model performance and complex test data requirements. By employing service virtualization to model the core business logic in SAP systems and integrations, teams can free themselves of these constraints, leading to faster build and test cycles, better quality and lower cost.
"Are dev and test constraints holding back your digital transformation?
Today, just about all businesses are scrambling to add digital components to their products and services with the hopes of capturing—and maintaining—the interest of an increasingly demanding customer base. As you undergo this digital transformation, your IT teams face tremendous pressure to not only develop innovative new experiences, but do so at an accelerated rate—lest competitors beat you to market with the next big thing.
Take a new approach to solving the familiar challenge of doing more with less—and doing it faster than ever before -- remove the constraints holding you back.
At its core, Service Virtualization is all about removing constraints within the SDLC by simulating dependent systems, services and behaviors. In order to understand the true depth and breadth of this concept, however, it helps to see how Service Virtualization can be utilized in different development scenarios.

How to overcome complexity and be ready for future growth.
The modern production digital print market brought a world of opportunities for micro-runs and variable data printing into the hands of Print Service Providers (PSPs). With print available in any quantity to anyone, print is being democratized, resulting in ever-greater numbers of increasingly smaller jobs. The old print model of high-volume static print is being replaced with a myriad of micro-runs and micro-jobs.
Automation that allows PSP owners to master the ensuing complexity and respond faster than ever before is enabling them to refocus on market development and on delivering value.
A recent study by Engineering.com indicated there is a significant gap between how Industrial Equipment Manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. In order to address the challenging aspects of product development projects, it was determined that projects with a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution will perform higher.
Learn how PLM solutions with embedded project management can uniquely provide the following operational best practices:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio in order to leverage common technology platforms and launch products to market faster
• Coordination of a project’s schedule and resources, with its scope as defined by requirements and development constraints, in order to meet market expectations
• Automatic project task updates as development work is completed to provide a real-time understanding of project status and progress
Effective Competition Depends on Continuous Delivery of Quality Software In today’s application economy every company is a software company, no matter what industry it is in:
• Shipping companies depend on logistics software to efficiently route packages, arrange drivers and automate warehouses.
• Retail companies rely on software to manage inventory, engage with customers online and to give in-store associates the tools they need to answer customer questions on the spot.
• Marketing firms lean on applications to gather consumer data and parse it, automate communication with prospects and effectively manage advertising campaigns. The examples are endless.
The point is that in order to compete today, every business must be able to quickly build and tweak software to adjust to always evolving market demands. Ultimately, business success depends on faster development iterations while still maintaining the high quality of service expected by customers, stakeholders and end users.
Speed and agility matter.
Businesses are being disrupted every day by digital upstarts that find ways to address new market requirements before the more established companies can respond.
Despite talented IT teams and years of head start in both architectural and development work, it is still difficult to respond to these challenges using traditional development patterns centered around monolithic software applications. It’s simply impossible to get to market quickly when applications need to be maintained, modified and scaled as a single entity by a large, heavily inter-dependent team.
From this need has arisen the microservices paradigm: a set of patterns for software architecture, development, deployment and culture that focus on speed and agility. From small, independent services and teams to automated deployment to fault tolerance and resiliency, these patterns help accelerate time to market.

A major telecoms client was struggling with time to market. Keen to launch a new youth brand, it had a number of innovative value-added digital services it wanted to offer; but it was taking a long time to implement them. Launching a new brand meant a 12-15 month cycle, which was unacceptable.
The reason was that, whenever anyone wanted to launch a new product or feature, they had to work on both the back-end and the front-end and then integrate it with the front end applications to make it work. This was so time-consuming and difficult that we were appointed to introduce a micro services layer in between, which would shorten development timescales.
There’s growing, industry-wide pressure to integrate more software and electronics into products. In fact, innovative products are now critical to the success of future-thinking companies — 52 percent of companies developing smart products fear they’ll lose market share unless they continue to make products smarter. There are, however, unique challenges that come with perfecting development processes and managing complexities. This e-book, by research firm Tech-Clarity, outlines steps to successfully transforming your products into smart, connected systems.

Build or buy? When manufacturers have sought new leaders, they have typically done both: grooming talent in-house and paying market rates for the best thinkers and managers.
With the growing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) shortage, companies will be harder-pressed to buy – and keep – top technical talent. Emerging and established leaders will command premium prices and field continual offers, increasing the likelihood they’ll make frequent job changes, taking their industry and institutional knowledge with them. As a consequence, manufacturers will need to build their talent pipeline, empower knowledge workers with the tools and intelligence they need to succeed, and provide professional development opportunities that exceed what competitors offer.
This will be a marathon, not a sprint. What’s key to making the race for talent successful: virtual training environments that accelerate learning and innovation.
Organizations may believe that simply building new applications to keep up with changing business needs is enough to offer new value to the market.
However, between building new applications and maintaining legacy Java EE applications, organizations often end up supporting both traditional and new infrastructures with unchanged or even reduced IT budgets. As the pressure to increase their technical and business agility increases, IT organizations are being forced to re-examine their processes and infrastructure. The result? Architecturally rigid, monolithic middleware is being replaced with solutions that offer agility, flexibility, and rapid development and deployment, such as PaaS.
