As the debate rages on within companies of all sizes on who should "own" software quality, and at what stage(s) of the SDLC should testing be performed, an interesting finding popped up in the most recent SmartBear State of Software Quality | Code Review report. Close to 800 participants in the survey — nearly 80% of which define their roles as either developers, architects, or systems engineers — stated that code review is the number one thing a company can do to improve code quality ...

Application programming interfaces (APIs) are the underpinnings of digital transformation and represent 83% of all web traffic. Serving as the fabric of modern service delivery and app development, the logic and sensitive data APIs can expose have made them a high-value target for cybercriminals. In fact, the amount of API cyberattacks has spiked in the last year. According to Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) analysts, "attackers are setting their sights on unprotected APIs, and API attacks will see a banner year in 2022" ...

Internal tools — custom software built to support the business operations and used primarily by employees — are essential for managing complex internal processes that any company, from a small startup to a FAANG, relies on to operate day-to-day. Internal tools can make these processes more efficient within and between teams, and, when done right, save engineers time and resources. Retool's recent State of Internal Tools 2021 report found that developers dedicate more than 30 percent of their time to the process of internal app building ...

Creating an agile enterprise goes far beyond just purchasing and deploying new technologies. Effectively managing your organization's software value chain plays an integral role. But achieving agility also requires a cultural transformation — led by leadership — to drive enhanced business performance, employee engagement, and customer satisfaction.

In this age of software eating the world, implementation speed is of the essence. Organizations that cannot update their systems quickly and effectively will find themselves left behind by more nimble competitors and become easy prey for cybercriminals. A key limiting factor in the deployment of software is that it often must reside in different locations and devices, and in some cases will be serving different use cases. This requires the creation of multiple configurations, which accompany the application code ...

Although APIs are the backbone of our digital economy, their growth means more API sprawl — a distributed infrastructure of APIs with a lack of observability and traceability leading to vulnerabilities, breaches, and attacks. It is time to start thinking about what drives the sprawl and control it ...
