Background – My Journey to the Cloud REAL-TIME VISIBILITY AND CONTROL PLATFORM AS A SERVICE INSTANT SCALABILITY (PaaS) SCALE UP AND DOWN ISO 29119 SLA’s CMMI PAY AS YOU USE TESTING AS A SERVICE (TaaS) (PAYU) SOFTWARE AS A SERVICE (SaaS) INFRASTRUCTURE AS A SERVICE (IaaS) HIGH AVAILABILITY “We‟ve all heard the claims that cloud computing will, without any up-front investment, provide instant @jonathon_wright scalability, flexibility, and availability for testing-on-demand. But how well does this work in practice?” #UNICOMSeminars
SLM Ready? Cloud Power Solution Lifecycle Management in the Cloud @jonathon_wright #UNICOMSeminars Where are we going next?
Q1) What is „Solution Lifecycle Management‟ in the Cloud? “Existing technologies of virtualisation, business process modelling, cloud based „application lifecycle management‟ solutions and rapid and easy internet access allow for the development of approaches that @jonathon_wright www.unicom.co.uk #UNICOMSeminars allow companies to leverage „Software as a Service‟ and pay only for what they use (PAYU).”
Q2) – Which „Application Lifecycle Management‟ Tools? “My @jonathon_wright consisted of over 300+ solutions under test (SUT), representing 2,700+ applications current landscape #UNICOMSeminars under test (AUT), across 50+ global locations with over 10,000 practitioners worldwide.”
Q3) Business Benefits of „Solution Lifecycle Management‟*? • Delivering business value, not just driving process efficiency • Supporting individual, team, and institutional management • Extending life cycles to include delivery • Managing software that gets deployed everywhere • Integrating across tools • Using reporting and dashboards to provide „Business Insight‟ *Source - The Forrester Wave™: Application Life-Cycle Management, Q4 2012 “Improve Reporting of Business-Oriented Metrics to Demonstrate the Value of QA – more organisations are beginning to centralise QA practices and develop TCOEs most still need to prove the business value of QA by @jonathon_wright reporting operational metrics linked to specific business outcomes” - World Quality Report (2013-14) #UNICOMSeminars
Q4) Is our business ready for „Solution Lifecycle Management‟? Capability Maturity Model (CMM®) Assessment to provide a current software „process‟ maturity level & the target maturity level: CMM Level 1 Phase Criteria Initial processes are disorganized, even chaotic. Success is likely to depend on individual efforts, and is not considered to be repeatable, because processes would not be sufficiently defined and documented to allow them to be replicated basic project management techniques are established, and successes could be repeated, because the requisite processes would have been made established, defined, and documented Level 2 Repeatable Level 3 Defined Level 4 Managed an organization monitors and controls its own processes through data collection and analysis Optimised processes are constantly being improved through monitoring feedback from current processes and introducing innovative processes to better serve the organization's particular needs Level 5 @jonathon_wright #BCS_SIGIST an organization has developed its own standard software process through greater attention to documentation, standardization, and integration www.unicom.co.uk * Reference models: CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) IPD-CMM (Integrated Product Development Capability Maturity Model) P-CMM (People Capability Maturity Model) SA-CMM (Software Acquisition Capability Maturity Model) SE-CMM (Systems Engineering Capability Maturity Model) SW-CMM (Capability Maturity Model for Software)
Q5) Are we ready for „Solution Lifecycle Management‟? Documentation Activity Streams Living Meta Data Real-time info “Master the Data” @jonathon_wright #BCS_SIGIST Team Working Dashboards Remote collaboration Funnel Virtualisation “Embrace cloud workforces” “Collaborate inventively” www.unicom.co.uk “Encourage simplicity”
Q6) How to become an „Ambassador of Data‟ / „Business Insight‟? Business Insight Funnel Virtualisation Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data Data “Data security and safeguarding access to cloud infrastructure remain a priority for CIOs – especially given the number of highly publicized recent security breaches. The hybrid cloud option is becoming more popular, as it @jonathon_wright allows#UNICOMSeminars between public and private cloud infrastructures.” - World Quality Report (2013-14) companies to split www.unicom.co.uk

SLM Ready Cloud Power Solution Lifecycle Management in the Cloud @jonathon_wright #UNICOMSeminars “To the cloud”
Q8) Should we move to the cloud? A match made in heaven? and/or New Challenges & Opportunities ? “Make greater use of the cloud for testing – Organisations are taking a cautious approach to „Testing in the Cloud‟ we advice developing a specific strategy for migrating testing to the Cloud, factoring in explicit @jonathon_wright requirements, www.unicom.co.uk #UNICOMSeminarstools and opportunities that the cloud offers” - World Quality Report (2013-14)

Final Thoughts – Solution Lifecycle Management in the Cloud “The best aspects of these proven approaches demonstrate how they have evolved over the past decade, and this echoes some of the changes towards more lean and agile business methodologies. They are in a constant state of evolution – just as the underpinning technology evolves over time.” My section in the „Experiences in Test Automation‟ book (Dorothy Graham & Mark Fewster) 2012. @jonathon_wright #UNICOMSeminars Twitter with how many slides in this presentation? 25
