|FEATURED WHITE PAPERS |
Faced with today’s multilevel challenges, many functional testing teams are reaching the breaking point. Yesterday’s tools and processes can’t overcome the challenges of time to market, the onslaught of mobile technologies, and the complexity of today’s hybrid composite applications.
To respond to these challenges, your organization needs to rethink ingrained practices that are out of step with today’s demands. It is time to transform your functional testing approaches with automated capabilities that accelerate the test process and enable the unified testing of end-to-end application functionality. Read about how HP tools allow your organization to revolutionize your manual testing, automate functional testing before the GUI is ready, simplify testing through an integrated interface, and create end-to-end automated functional tests for even the most complex hybrid composite applications.
Forward-looking companies are realizing that automation is an absolute prerequisite for migration to the cloud—and the key to a smooth, non-disruptive transition to hybrid service delivery. They are also learning that the move to the cloud is a process, not a project, and that it requires automating not just infrastructure elements but also business processes and service delivery.

Big Data Special Interest Group – New!
By Pam Bishop, Big Data Special Interest Group Champion
Data, the most precious raw material in the 21st century. By the year 2049 a $1,000 computer will exceed the computational capabilities of the entire human species. Experts forecast that raw data will grow 50% per month and almost 800% in the next 5 years. Data could equal 35 zettabytes by 2020. In fact, there will be more text messages sent today than there are people in the world. Join the Big Data SIG and participate in the largest explosion of our time – the explosion of big data and information.
