Automated vs. Manual QA

By Abdul Dremali on Nov 13, 2019, 9:05:00 AM

Software is complex stuff. Even relatively straightforward applications that do only a few things can have a dizzying number of possible “journeys” for users to take. Ideally, every one of those journeys is tested under all possible circumstances to ensure the software works as expected and doesn’t crash, pop-up useless error messages, or provide wrong answers.

By Abdul Dremali on Nov 6, 2019, 9:05:00 AM

If you’ve been paying any attention at all to the world around you, you’ve probably noticed quite a bit of discussion, speculation, and hand-wringing about emerging technologies, such as robotics and artificial intelligence (AI). Much of what’s been written in the popular press and on social media centers around big, scary questions, such as:

Can You Afford to Skip Digital Transformation?

By Abdul Dremali on Oct 23, 2019, 9:15:00 AM

One of the biggest mistakes a business can make is to assume today’s success will be there tomorrow. A company can thrive for generations, relying on a tried-and-true formula for success. It’s easy to fall into the trap of believing that what has always worked in the past will always continue to work in the future.

All it takes is one disruptive technology, one upstart company that comes out of nowhere with a better, faster, cheaper, more convenient way to deliver the same products and services, to completely upend an established company’s entire business model.

No one can predict the future, so it’s inherently difficult to anticipate these developments. But there are things businesses can do to put themselves in a better position to respond to these developments when they occur. The most important of these is digital transformation.

Digital Transformation: A Review

AndPlus understand digital transformation as the process of organizational change brought about by the use of digital technologies and business models to improve performance. Under this definition, digital transformation must include the following:

  • Business objective; typically, a desire to “move the needle” on some key performance metric
  • Foundation of one or more digital technologies
  • Organizational change, which includes some combination of processes, people, and strategy

It’s a tall order, and not easy to pull off. Many organizations treat it as no more than a buzzword. “All the cool companies say they’re pursuing digital transformations, so we’ll make the same claim,” while being light on the specifics of what’s actually being transformed.

Dig a little deeper and you’ll find those businesses that successfully execute one or more digital transformations are better able to attract and keep happy customers. Their organizations reduce inefficiencies, eliminate cumbersome manual processes, and lower costs while readying for important market changes.

Why Firmware is Secretly Everywhere

By Abdul Dremali on Oct 16, 2019, 9:15:00 AM

A few years ago, journalist Sara Bongiorni wrote a book called A Year Without “Made in China:” One Family’s True Life Adventure in the Global Economy, about her family’s yearlong quest to boycott Chinese-made products. The author never quite articulates the fundamental reasons for her boycott, nor explores the macroeconomic reasons for China’s manufacturing juggernaut. But she does succeed in making the point that yes, it’s pretty difficult for a middle-class American family to avoid buying products that are made in China or that contain Chinese components or materials.

How Firmware Works

By Abdul Dremali on Oct 9, 2019, 9:05:00 AM

An old joke in hardware engineering circles says, contrary to popular belief, electronic gizmos don’t run on electricity. They run on smoke. When something goes wrong, the smoke (sometimes accompanied by flames) escapes, and the device stops working.
