Continuous Testing for Dummies

The Continuous Testing for Dummies is a limited edition e-book from IBM that explains the basics and features of continuous testing, a DevOps practice area, and one of the most ardently followed software quality assurance processes today.

Service Virtualisation for Dummies

Service virtualisation simulates the behavior of select components within an application to enable end-to-end testing of the application as a whole. Test environments can use virtual services in lieu of the production services to conduct integration testing earlier in the development process, helping companies create more efficient testing environments by eliminating many of the roadblocks that testing teams typically encounter.

DevOps for Dummies

DevOps is the newest best practice philosophy for software development processes.

The Power of Mentorship

Hello to the Testhouse family! This is my second blog in a series of posts aimed at sharing insights into things I have learned or experienced in my career in testing to date. If you find anything that sparks your interest or have follow up questions, then please do let me know. In my last blog, I touched on mentorship, conferences, and the value of networking.

Companies acquire enterprise SaaS applications (such as Microsoft Dynamics, Salesforce, ServiceNow or Workday) to accelerate business capabilities. However, the complexity increases as businesses begin to customise and integrate solutions to suit their business requirements.
