With the application economy in full swing, more organizations are turning to Continuous Testing and DevOps development practices in order to quickly roll out applications that reflect the ever-changing needs of tech-savvy, experience-driven consumers.
Rigorous data they need, in the right formats. This forces teams to postpone their testing until the next sprint. As a result, organizations like yours are increasingly looking for ways to overcome the challenges of poor quality data and slow, manual data provisioning. They are also concerned about compliance and data privacy when using sensitive information for testing. CA Test Data Manager can help you mitigate all these concerns, so you’re positioned to achieve real cost savings.
CEOs seeking to disrupt their sector rather than be disrupted, are turning to Agile development methods in order to accelerate development and rapidly adapt to changes in business requirements. Agile development is a group of methodologies, utilising incremental, iterative work sequences or sprints delivered by cross-functional teams and represents a fundamentally different way of working from traditional waterfall development. One of the major barriers to successful adoption of Agile ways of working, is a lack of industry consensus on how to successfully contract for Agile. The traditional Time & Materials approach is slow, and can obstruct collaboration. This paper discusses the alternative models for sourcing Agile and gives recommendations that benefit both customer and suppliers.
As businesses increasingly demand mobile options for employees, Sprint has introduced a service
for wholesale providers called Wholesale Mobile Integration (WMI), which integrates wireless and office telephones on the same phone number.

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.
According to this EIU survey-based report, sponsored by Sprint Business, breakthroughs delivered by 5G will be truly disruptive, upending the status quo, unleashing innovation and threatening incumbents in many markets.
Agile methods have proven effective for software development and have grown in popularity across a number of software disciplines. Agile methods build capabilities using an iterative approach, as opposed to traditional approaches where requirements are defined early and designs are completed in full before a single line of code is written. Agile incrementally defines requirements with priorities, partial component designs and working systems that evolve through iterations called sprints.
The question remains, however: Do the 12 agile principles apply to more than just software? Agile principles are in line with lean management’s approach. Given that, it seems as though agile principles should directly apply beyond software development. However, the answer is not straightforward, because differences between software and physical components affect how agile is applied. Let’s explore how agile can be applied in light of these differences.
It takes more than a single interaction to net a customer. By now, marketers understand the importance of multichannel engagement, but most still struggle to seamlessly connect the customer experience across channels.
Simply put, it’s easy to batch and blast a broadcast message to email, social, and mobile audiences, but consumers today want more. They want to see themselves in the brand, not just see the brand talk about themselves.
Additionally, personalizing messaging in one channel can be tricky enough, but connecting messaging, for an audience who is sprinting from one channel to the next, is a whole other hurdle.
