Test Pyramid vs Testing Trophy- What’s the Difference?
Many possible approaches to software testing exist, based on their components and the emphasis given to each one. These approaches often have names based on the shape of their graphical representation, such as pyramid testing. This method has been in common use for decades, but a variation known as the trophy is a more recent development. Today’s testing teams often compare pyramid testing with trophy testing when deciding how to test software.Read More

Custom Software vs. Off-the-shelf Software
Modern businesses frequently find they need new software to remain competitive, especially in crowded markets driven by rapidly advancing technology. The decision to implement software often comes down to a choice between custom and commercial-off-the-shelf software. Custom software has a higher up-front cost, but its maintenance costs are often lower since it probably won’t require as many changes going forward. Organizations making this decision must also consider the longer implementation time of custom software.Read More

Low code Vs Traditional Development: Which is the Best Choice for Your Enterprise Software Applications?
There was a time not too long ago when any company needing an enterprise software application was required to build their own solution from the ground up. We've come a long way in recent years, though, with software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications making it increasingly easier for companies of all sizes to acquire the software solutions they need without being required to build those solutions themselves. Perhaps the most significant advance in the world of custom software development, though, is the rapidly rising popularity of low code/ no code development.Read More

Understanding Enterprise Software
There are many applications available on the market and one or more may be ideal for your business. However, no single out-of-the-box solution will meet every possible scenario or offer the flexibility necessary to maintain a competitive edge and scale according to internal goals. For many large organizations, building a custom solution is the perfect solution. In our latest post, we dive into the latest trends in enterprise software, what to look for in your solutions, and how automation can help streamline your workflow.Read More
Harvester’s Disruption of the HCI Space
HCI is an increasingly important feature of IT infrastructure because it allows administrators to manage many systems as a single, shared resource. However, traditional solutions like VMWare can be very expensive, even for enterprise software. Our post on Harvester discusses how this open source solution has the power to disrupt the HCI space through its lower cost and other benefits. It also covers Harvester’s ease of implementation.Read More
The Importance of Backlog Management from a Developer
A software development backlog describes the product’s future, but it often becomes overloaded. This tendency can delay a product’s time to market and reduce its quality. Restoration of the backlog can be a key requirement for getting a project back on track and fostering the innovation that’s so important for successful software development. This post explains the importance of the backlog and how it affects software development. It also discusses how to prevent the backlog from becoming overloaded, which is essential for maintaining a productive development environment.Read More
What Software Architectures Should Include in 2021
Building the right architecture for your software application is challenging. How do you make a resilient infrastructure while keeping it secure and sustainable? How do you get visibility through a cloud deployment? At its core, software architecture is the unifying framework of a piece of software. It details how the logical and physical components of a system interact. In other words, software architecture is the blueprint for designing and developing a software solution. Learn what software architecture should look like in 2021.Read More
What is Cloud-Based ERP and Why Your Company Needs it?
Organizations of all sizes now use ERP solutions to manage their business processes, although there is still debate about the best way to implement them. The transition from an on-premise to a cloud ERP platform provides many benefits, especially for a growing business that needs to drive business growth by scaling its operations quickly. The primary advantages of cloud ERP for most organizations include the cost reduction, improved access and greater efficiency.Read More
The Benefits of Outsourcing a Software Development Company in 2021
Outsourcing is an approach to software development in which the client organization partners with a third party to develop the software, as opposed to developing it with and in-house team. US companies historically used outsourcing as a means of cutting costs by hiring workers in other countries to perform jobs requiring little skill for low wages. However, outsourcing has evolved since then to include skilled work like software development, such that sustained growth is now the driving factor. Cost saving still remains an important motivation of outsourcing, but it's no longer the only advantage. Software outsourcing strategies fall into three general categories, including on shoring, off shoring and near shoring.Read More
Migrating to SaaS
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) represents a dramatic paradigm shift in the way organizations develop, market, deliver and service software. It also transforms Independent Software Vendor (ISVs) into service providers that add value to the software. The migration to SaaS requires organizations to consolidate their existing single-tenant applications into a multi-tenant solution, which can prevent them from fully realizing all the benefits of SaaS.Read More
What is SaaS?
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is a model for licensing and delivering software in which the software is centrally hosted and licensed on a subscription basis. These applications are also known by other terms such as on-demand software, web-based software and web-hosted software.Read More
Serverless Platform Comparison: AWS, Google and Azure
Serverless computing is a model of cloud computing in which the service provider operates the server and dynamically manages the allocation of computing resources such as processing, memory and storage. The provider bases pricing on the resources applications actually consume, rather than the tradition pricing model that requires the user to purchase resources before using them. Serverless computing simplifies enterprise software development by concealing administrative tasks such as capacity planning, maintenance and scaling from the developer. Developers can also combine serverless computing traditional code deployment styles.Read More
Enterprise Software Development with AWS Lambda
Serverless computing is a cloud-computing model in which the cloud provider dynamically manages the allocation of computing resources. AWS Lambda is a serverless computing platform that Amazon provides as part of Amazon Web Services (AWS). It’s also event-driven, meaning that Lambda only executes code in response to events and automatically manages the computing resources that the code requires. These capabilities allow developers to focus on an application’s business logic, rather than provisioning resources and managing access control.Read More
Enterprise Software Development with Knative
Kubernetes can manage complex sets of software containers by itself, but it also creates its own configuration and management challenges. Knative is an extension of Kubernetes that eliminates the need for developers to perform these tasks and also serverless capabilities to Kubernetes. It runs on top of Kubernetes, allowing Knative to manage a large number of containers in enterprise software development. Google developed Knative as an open-source platform in collaboration with other companies such as IBM, Pivotal, Red Hat and SAP.Read More
Enterprise Software Development with Kubeless
Kubeless is a Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) platform that runs with Kubernetes. It’s entirely open-source, so it has no affiliation with any commercial organization. Kubeless is a serverless framework that allows developers to deploy small units of code without considering its underlying infrastructure. This capability means that Kubeless can leverage Kubernetes resources to perform tasks vital to enterprise software development such as API routing, auto-scaling, monitoring and troubleshooting.Read More
