ITIL – Getting Software Testing in Better Shape

The IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a publicly available collection of books owned by the UK Governments' Office of Government Commerce (OGC). After the first publication of ITIL, the amount of books quickly grew to about 30 volumes. The second set of ITIL publications (v2) was published with a specific goal of ensuring ITIL was more accessible to those interested in it, and to consolidate the information into sets that grouped these guidelines in to differing aspects of applications, IT Management and services. However, the cost of these ITIL manuals is still significant, particularly for non-commercial use. ITIL version 3 outlines a broad set of testing guidelines and best practices. It does not restrict the project to following one testing methodology, but rather encourages the selection of principles that best fit the requirements. It does emphasize the need to reduce risk early in the project lifecycle and provides several suggestions as to how to do this. Test … [Read more...]

Hosted Therapy Software Services Vs In House IT Overhead

Hosted Software Service vs In-House IT Therapy clinic managers who are in the process of evaluating therapy software solutions must also consider the benefits of a hosted software service against in-house IT management.

Pros and Cons of Spaghetti Integration & Star Integration

A few years ago, IKEA released a VERY hilarious commercial to promote its simple and clean furniture line to organize a home or office space. In short, the commercial opened with an attractive couple, in a rather unattractive and untidy room, sharing a single spaghetti dinner. They savored and slurped each noodle as suggestively as a bowl of pasta can possibly be eaten. The female - with eyes closed, head to plate, mesmerizing her partner with her technique - was so engrossed in her sensual display that she accidentally mistook as another noodle her boyfriend's filthy shoelaces which, of course, were tied to his even filthier sneakers . (If this is too gross for you, that may help to explain why it was banned in the US.) The commercial faded out and ended with a silent, but poignant reminder: "Tidy Up". Just like with an untidy room, a spaghetti integration (or star integration) may take months, even years, to get to the point of being disorderly. Traditionally, … [Read more...]
