Ensuring Access to the Right Equipment at the Right Time and at the Lowest Cost

By David Saeys, Managing Director, Electro Rent Europe

Creating a cost-effective plan that ensures the availability of the right test equipment at the right time requires collaboration and bottom-up planning between two groups that don’t always see eye to eye: testing and finance

The Role of Static Analysis in a Secure Software Development Lifecycle

by Bill Graham, GrammaTech, Inc.

When should static analysis be applied?” The answer to this question is fairly straightforward: “whenever code is being developed.” This however, is a simplification. The longer answer is “part of a structured and secure development process.”
