Worksoft® Positioned as a Visionary in Magic Quadrant for Integrated Software Quality Suites

Worksoft®, an innovative provider of test and lifecycle automation solutions for use with SAP® applications, today announced that it has been positioned in the Visionaries quadrant by analyst firm Gartner, Inc. in its recently published Magic Quadrant for Integrated Software Quality Suites (1). The Magic Quadrant report evaluated fourteen software quality solution vendors based on a rigorous set of criteria that comprise ‘completeness of vision’ and ‘ability to execute.’ According to Gartner, the automated software quality assurance market is comprised of three areas: Test Management, Automated Stress and Load Testing, Automated Functional and Regression Testing. According to the report, "the total market for test management and functional and load/stress automation is currently valued at just under $1.2 billion, and is growing at more than 8% per year."

“Package applications place additional constraints and different needs on testing organizations than custom development, including lack of access to source and data models, and a high degree of complexity,” said Thomas Murphy in the report.

“We are very happy to be recognized by Gartner as a visionary company in the software quality market,” said Dan Gannon, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Worksoft. “We believe this reinforces our script-less testing philosophy and its proven ability to reduce time and resources required to manage complex change management lifecycles.”

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
