Forrester Research on DevOps Quality Metrics that Matter

Published By: Tricentis     Published Date: Aug 19, 2019
The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the past 5 years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies, system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era. Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under the microscope as well? Are metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail rate important in the context of DevOps, where the goal is immediate insight into whether a given release candidate has an acceptable level of risk? What other metrics can help us ensure that the steady stream of updates don’t undermine the very user experience that we’re working so hard to enhance? To provide the DevOps community an objective perspective on what quality

Frost & Sullivan whitepaper “Data Center Management Services"

Published By: HPE Intel     Published Date: Mar 15, 2016
To free up staff resources to focus on strategic business initiatives, many IT leaders are considering engaging a partner to handle ongoing data center maintenance and optimization. But, too often, data center management services fall short of expectations. Standard care services may be limited in scope, and may not support the range of legacy hardware already in the data center. Conversely, complex managed or outsourced services may involve a costly, fully-customized engagement, in which costs are unpredictable, and control is wrested away from the enterprise. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—many data center management service providers seem to lack the innovative spark that will ensure continuous improvement to data center operations.

Customer Experience: The Flip Side of the Fraud Detection Coin

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Jan 17, 2018
First, today’s digitally oriented customers expect banks to provide an ever-higher quality experience defined by speed and the flexibility to conduct business across many channels. They’ve grown accustomed to going online and transferring money between accounts, for example, and using their mobile device to make payments and check their account balance. These kinds of experiences have raised the bar in terms of customer expectations – and banks need to keep up, or risk losing customers. This is particularly true of millennial customers, as they have little regard for loyalty, which banks have traditionally relied on to build their business. Once frustrated by inconvenience, they don’t hesitate to switch banks – and thanks to the internet, this is now a fast, painless process.

Ovum White Paper

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Jun 21, 2016
Businesses must become agile and provide differentiated service as customer demands and expectations change. Moving beyond simple phone transactions, customers are taking matters into their own hands and turning to their peers, the web and social media to find answers. Contact centers play a major role in determining the customer’s perception of a company. Often seen as brand ambassadors, agents are the main interaction point for customers. It is therefore critical that they deliver personalized communications in the channels that customers prefer. Businesses should use cloud technology to add multichannel tools and support growing demand for chat, social, SMS and video.

IDG Assessment Tool

Published By: HP     Published Date: Dec 05, 2014
This assessment is composed of a core set of comparative questions, and the option to be assessed in any of three key areas: computing economics, service delivery and business performance. After a half-decade of cost cutting and shrinking IT budgets, the compute infrastructure that powers the enterprise now is typically inefficient, slow and not optimized for business outcomes. It is better suited to the economic realities of 2010 rather than the rigors of the application workloads, delivery models & business expectations of today driven by cloud, mobility, security and big data megatrends. As a result, there is a significant gap between what businesses expect from technology and what IT can deliver.
