Dans une série d’articles, Paul Gerrard, consultant et spécialiste des tests, aborde diverses questions sur ces derniers. Les modèles de test sont essentiels pour les tests et, dans cet article, Paul Gerrard évoque l’art de créer et d’utiliser ces modèles. Si les testeurs interviennent de plus en plus tôt, de pair avec les développeurs ou du moins plus étroitement, les testeurs (et les développeurs) doivent être capables de créer des modèles, de savoir comment les articuler et les partager, ainsi que d’encourager une meilleure collaboration.
In a series of articles Paul Gerrard, a testing guru and consultant, discusses a range of testing topics. Test models are fundamental to testing and, in this article, Paul talks about the art of creating and using models. If testers are “shifting left,” pairing with developers or at least working more closely with developers, testers (and developers) need to be able to create models, learn how to articulate and share them, and support better collaboration.
The Impact of CECL and Financial Institution Readiness
When it comes to CECL compliance, top financial consultants agree that extensive amounts of historical data, including different lengths of portfolio histories, will be needed. In addition, this research reveals that a majority of financial institutions do not understand how their risk management methodology needs to change. Nor do they comprehend the impacts of the changes that will need to be made to calculate Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL).
This represents a significant opportunity for top-tier consultancies to provide valuable thought leadership and guidance now, before financial institutions find themselves scrambling to meet the new standard. Learn more in our survey results."

Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning. The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business (LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy. IDC believes that this emerging environment is to date still highly undefined, even as businesses must make critical decisions. Should businesses develop in-house or use VARs, systems integrators, or consultants? Should they deploy on-premise, in the cloud, or in some hybrid form?

HRIS solutions designed for very large organizations can be costly to set up and maintain, and often require the services of an army of consultants to keep them operational. Systems designed for very small organizations concentrate on either HR functions such as attendance and compensation, or on benefits management, but usually lack the ability to integrate the two areas. To be a practical investment choice for a mid-tier organization, a satisfactory HRIS solution must have its HR and benefits functions highly integrated. It must be agile so it can easily be kept aligned with the constant change in compliance laws, and it must be robust and secure, built on a tried and true platform foundation.
