CTO Jason Macy to Explore Best-Practice Testing Techniques for Cloud Computing and Virtualization
BOSTON, March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Crosscheck Networks, Inc., today announced that CTO Jason Macy will present the session titled, “Adapting Testing Techniques for Cloud Computing and Virtualization” at the Software Testing Analysis & Review Conference in Orlando, Florida on Monday, April 16 at 8:30 a.m. EDT.
Organized by Software Quality Engineering, STAREAST 2012 is the premier conference for testing technologies, software and tools. The event provides a forum for software testers, developers and managers to interact and learn how to improve software-testing practices while exploring key topics such as security testing, performance testing and Web services.
Cloud computing and virtualization have moved beyond the experimental stage to become core aspects of modern enterprise technologies. In his half-day tutorial, Macy will explore how to establish a solid foundation for testing applications and systems using software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) architectures. He will also discuss the emerging methods and approaches for testing cloud-based application and infrastructure services. And testers and developers will learn the different virtualization techniques – mimicking services even before they are implemented – that enable them to proceed in parallel before services are implemented.
In healthcare, EDI-, SOA-, XML- and REST-based services provide the foundation of these transaction-oriented organizations. As such, real-world, intensive testing of these services – ensuring trading partners can conduct business transactions concurrently and without issues – is essential.
Targeting that challenge, last month Crosscheck Networks introduced the SOAPSonar and CloudPort Healthcare Suite to simplify and expedite the ability of development and QA groups to ensure compliance with the latest Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) mandates. Available now, the company’s first-of-its-kind healthcare testing and simulation Suite comprises:
- SOAPSonar – A testing tool that allows developers to validate that their underlying EDI-, SOAP-, XML- and REST-based service infrastructures comply with HIPAA regulations – prior to deployment.
- CloudPort – A simulation tool that enables developers and QA to emulate all EDI transactions – claims, referrals/authorizations, eligibility/benefits – prior to implementation. With CloudPort, testing teams can validate that integration partner documents are formatted and exchanged in accordance with HIPAA Version 5010 and ICD-10 standards.
