What keeps IT leaders awake at night?

Posted by bugfinders on Wednesday 05 April 2017

Being an IT Leader isn't an easy job, not when hackers are coming at you from all sides trying to get their hands on your existing bugs trying to use these as loop holes to enter your existing site. It’s especially nerve-racking because one breach can turn a company from a respectable digital business to one that looks like it protects its information with a layer of thin paper.

Here are three things keeping CTOs up at night – and a solution to help them fall back asleep again:

Bring an end to ‘Push & Pray’ when going live on new web releases

Historically, technical teams have gone live with multiple bugs and issues across their digital estate – what we call ‘Push & Pray’. This impacts your brand reputation and waves the flags to hackers who are looking for weak and vulnerable websites. Ultimately this will impact online revenues and your CMO will certainly want a resolution around this.

Making sure the platform works on latest devices

Typically, organisations might test between 5-15 browsers and mobile devices. What is not realised is that customers use a much wider set of devices. In fact, to cover 80% of mobile traffic, you need to cover 152 devices, which is simply not possible in-house. How are you ensuring that your customers can access your services at all times from whatever device they happen to be using?

Ever tightening deadlines and reduced QA budget

Organisations are releasing more and more technology updates, sometimes daily or weekly - yet investment in testing is running at all-time low. Without access to an on-demand agile testing solution, there is simply no other way to find the most critical, reputation affecting issues, on all your customers’ most used devices, within your tight deadlines.
