As personal computing devices became more accessible, more and more businesses have incorporated bring your own device (BYOD) policies in the workplace. BYOD has enabled the workforce to interact with familiar devices, cutting the learning curve, and enhancing productivity.
A test automation framework is a set of rules, guidelines, and tools for testing software products under development. It helps quality assurance teams improve both their productivity and user experiences. With a well-documented framework, organizations can test new software deployments more thoroughly, mitigate human error, and save time using automation.
Modern businesses rely on various technologies to keep their companies up and running. Today, most of them need an internet connection and multiple apps and software to help their staff get things done.
At first glance, all the different technologies you use may seem unrelated to one another — after all, the software your accounting department uses is different from what your research and development team has and so on.
Film and television perpetuate the idea of one high-profile hacker getting through a company’s cybersecurity and stealing confidential data, but most data breaches aren’t that exciting: more often than not, the culprit is closer to home.
In the 2018 study by the Ponemon Institute, 61% of the respondents pinned the cause of data breach to a negligent employee (an alarming 112.9% increase from 2017). A properly researched and well-executed security awareness training can help lower the risks of data breaches caused by internal factors.
From client information management to automated billing and accounting, businesses turn to custom web applications to solve the problems that cause bottlenecks in their workflows. Companies invest a lot of time and money to have developers build such bespoke apps, so it can be utterly frustrating to find out that critical functions don't work upon deploying the apps into the real world.
All businesses hold confidential client data and information that will fetch a hefty sum on the black market, so no industry is completely safe from financially-motivated cyber attacks. For example, the health industry is full of valuable data like Social Security numbers, and as per Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report, data breaches affected one in four healthcare organizations.

The only way for a business to survive in a world dictated by fast-changing technology is to evolve with it. A business must learn to improve its existing technology to remain competitive. How can this be done? We can learn a thing or two from the principle of test driven development (TDD).
What is TDD?
TDD is a software development process that takes small steps instead of rolling out big changes at once.

One of my favorite people is Nido Qubein. For those of you who don’t know, he’s a businessman, motivational speaker, and the President of High Point University in High Point, North Carolina. Nido places extreme importance on providing his students and their families with extraordinary experiences.
Many successful small businesses have one thing in common — the ability to see the big picture, envision what their success will look like tomorrow, and invest in it today.
At MXOtech, a boutique, women-owned IT solutions firm specializing in custom healthcare development solutions, this is definitely the case.
The great efficiency that we enjoy (or bemoan for some!) in our 21st century life is that information can flow at the speed of light as bit and bytes of data. It seems that what we enter and click on here shortly thereafter ends up in a delivery package there.
