Enterprise growth and timely change of business technologies are inevitable. Progress in business development is tidily connected to a company’s IT and communication technology development.
What is needed?
Vendors need to provide more elegant solutions to maintain their ability to compete on the market.
It becomes ever more important to implement inter-operable and cross-platform adaptable solutions that satisfy clients and enable service and IT departments to react faster and more efficient to client needs.
Agile software and IT architectural practices need to reshape how we think about our enterprise technology, about implementing change and advancing business competition. Continue reading “Enterprise IT Trends – Making Growth Flexible” »
Software as a Service (SaaS) is providing on-demand and cost effective solutions that allows today’s companies to flexibly scale their software needs while developing their business.
Now, SaaS principles get applied to life science allowing scientists being more flexible and cost-effective without negotiating quality of their research.
Researchers have to cope with manifold institutional and federal regulations on scientific data generation, processing and storage and often struggle with only having access to relatively old Continue reading “Life Science Software Markets: Science as a Service” »
More and more enterprises use Apache Hadoop for business analytics.
Apache Hadoop provides a platform to process Big Data that are generated on a daily basis. It is an open-source software framework for data-intensive distributed application in the cloud. Prominent users of Hadoop include Google, Facebook, IBM, Akamai, ebay or Amazon.
Hadoop enables to interact with huge amount of date on multiple of computation-independent computers. Continue reading “Hadoop Distributions: Needed Change to Improve Big Scale Business Software” »
Any software development requires project management as importantly as having the right engineering team with coding expertise. This gets even more important when developing clinical software products – from patient management systems, to medical devices and to electronic medical records (EMRs) etc.
Today’s healthcare industry presents unique and complex software development challenges that require understanding of unique software architecture patterns Continue reading “Medical Project Management in Software Development” »
Increasing decentralization of information raises the need to synchronize data across numerous devices and data storage locations.
Synchronization processes comprise a ‘source’ and ‘destination’ entity and, based on data appearance, is categorized into unidirectional and bidirectional synchronization. Continue reading “Data Synchronization Techniques” »
Automated test cases: Bigger companies require it, start-up companies should have it – do you consider it?
As each airline needs to test the functionality of their aircrafts to guarantee complete safety for their passengers, today’s software engineering teams need to test their software to guarantee full functionality and security for their applications. Or do you want that financial apps calculate close-to but not quiet matching data, doctors give wrong recommendations due to an error in a decision-support systems or social app share by default sensitive information to everybody? Continue reading “Automated Test Cases: Would You Board an Aircraft without Back-up Check?” »
A hologram is a projected three-dimensional visual image of a physical representation.
The word “holography” derives from the Greek word “holos” meaning “whole” and “graphos” meaning “message” perfectly describing what a hologram really is; a “whole message” of an object or person.
Simplest holograms are flat surfaces which under proper illumination seem to comprehend a three-dimensional image. Most advanced holograms project 3D images into the air and allow tangible interaction with the projection. Continue reading “Holograms – Big Data of Tomorrow” »
More and more enterprises seek the help of third-parties to host business solutions rather than sourcing hardware and software themselves. The Software as a Service (SaaS) model allows those enterprises to get more efficient to achieve business agility. SaaS is reused across multiple channels, markets and customer segments. Continue reading “Business as a Service (BaaS) – The New Cloud Management Concept” »
The software development principle of continuous delivery is a team effort to create and maintain an automated building, testing and deployment of code and software.
Using continuous delivery guarantees that software is released long before users are given access to it and that additional releases occur very frequently – not less than once per iteration but normally as often as several times a day. Software is continuously tested for functionality Continue reading “The Continuous Delivery Pipeline” »
Continuous integration is a team software development and management principle that can be applied to any iterative programming model. It was supposedly developed in the early 60′s when IBM’s team developing OS/360 had to re-build the codebase four times a day. Recently, continuous integration become more popular boosted by the need to build high-quality, high-performance and reliable software quickly.
There are a few principles that characterize best practices of continuous integration such as committing new code frequently (at least once a day), categorizing developer tests, developing and using a steadfast integration build server that gives continuous feedback mechanism and the staging builds.
