Business applications have become the battleground for customer loyalty. To compete, IT organizations are under pressure to deliver applications faster and with higher quality. Continuous Delivery (CD) of code offers a solution. CD may be paired with DevOps, Agile and other methodologies. However, QA and testing can be an obstacle to CD’s rapid development and deployment of high quality code. Testers and developers must engage in Continuous Testing, continuously testing software for performance, quality and user experience as it’s being developed.
Continuous Testing is not a push button process, though. It requires a comprehensive approach. This paper outlines the common challenges to Continuous Testing and highlights results from real users who have used technology to get to succeed with the Continuous Testing process.

Previous best practices for cleaning healthcare facilities centered on sanitizing frequently touched objects, such as bed rails or call buttons, because these objects were believed to be major sources of contagion. However, this new study finds that floors are the largest potential source of pathogens after reviewing five participating Cleveland-area hospitals.
Specifically, the following findings are highlighted in the study:
• Patient room floors in five hospitals were found to be contaminated with healthcare-associated pathogens.
• High-touch objects often came to be in direct contact with the floor.
• Touching objects on the floor frequently resulted in transfer of pathogens to hands.
• Floors in hospital rooms are overlooked as a source for pathogen dissemination, with potentially dangerous results.

Getting the most out of A/B and other controlled tests.
In the fast-moving digital world, even experts have a hard time assessing new ideas. Case in point: At Bing a small headline change an employee proposed was deemed a low priority and shelved until one engineer decided to do a quick online controlled experiment—an A/B test—to try it out. The test showed that the change increased revenue by an astonishing 12%.
That experience illustrates why it’s critical to adopt an “experiment with everything” approach, say Ron Kohavi, the head of the Analysis & Experimentation team at Microsoft, and Stefan Thomke, an HBS professor.
In this article they describe: How to properly design and execute A/B and other controlled tests
? Ensure test integrity
? How to interpret results and avoid pitfalls
The US retail industry has had an interesting holiday season, marked by high expectations, volatility and distractions, and a reassuringly strong end. While it saw high sales growth - a 4 percent growth over last year, the best in some time - the results have not brought cheer all around. In many respects, the 2016 holiday sales data emphasizes the disruption patterns impacting the retail industry, and validates several predictions about the changing face of retail.
Online and mobile sales continue to grow unabated, at 17 and 44 percent respectively, while in-store traffic saw the highest decline in two years. While none of this is surprising in itself, it helps to highlight the role omni-channel retail will play in the coming years.
