Few examples of this…..Cloud speeds service delivery, and so we now see 90% of CIOs view cloud as critical to their plans. We see organizations leveraging mobile to improve reach of services to clients – with 1Bm smart phones and tables shipping in 2012 – a 34% increase in a year. We see over 20B machine centric devices now deployed enabling more responsive business operations and business models. And all of these technologies are generating tremendous data with 2.7 zetabytes of digital content in 2012 – an increase of 50% in one year.

We always want to be testing. Stub interfacing components out that are unavailable at the time and then re-introduce them when they are available. Continuous integration testing at a “ system ” level. When new components are introduced the automated test suite scan be run as regression tests. Thereby controlling the risk of extra functionality being deployed into the test environment by having mitigated the risk through earlier testing against stubs. This is an incremental and iterative approach to integration testing.
