  • Broker@Cloud raised its profile by mounting an exhibition at the UK National Software Testing Conference.  The conference, which attracts participants mainly from industry, took place on 19 - 20 May, 2015, at the British Museum, London.  Representing Broker@Cloud, Anthony Simons joined forces with a team from the Advanced Computing Research Centre, Sheffield, in co-sponsoring an exhibition stand.  We were there from 08:00 for the two days, meeting representatives from such companies as Accenture, Capita, Birlasoft, 31 Media, PlanIt, InfoStretch and Aqua (a new venture for cross-platform testing of mobile applications).  Anthony Simons ran a live demonstration of Testing-as-a-Service over the web, generating executable test files in different formats.  Visitors to our stand took materials relating both to software testing in particular, and also to Cloud service quality assurance in general, covering all the areas promoted by Broker@Cloud.  The ACRC also advertised its collaborative research and consultancy services.       Anthony Simons (Broker@Cloud), with Phil McMinn and Mat Hall (ACRC) ready for business at the UK National Software Testing Conference, London.The industry focus on testing this year was mostly in two areas.  The first of these, Behaviour-Driven Design, is a means of writing user-stories so that these can be mapped more easily onto software tests, so linking the perspectives of the business analyst and the test developer through supporting tools.  The second theme was DevOps, the strategy used for development and deployment across different platforms, with continuous integration testing.  We had something to offer there, with the capability of translating high-level tests into different formats for different platforms.  The visitors to our stand were quite impressed with the power of model-based testing, since in industry the state-of-the-art mostly relies on the ingenuity of developers and end-users to think up appropriate tests, which often misses important negative test cases.  The need for high-quality software testing was acknowledged as becoming increasingly important, as software permeates more areas of everyday life, and the liability for poor software is being challenged in courts.  Chris Ambler, a keynote speaker, foresaw the death of the old role of the post-hoc humble software tester, and the need for Software Development Engineers in Test (SDET), skilled developers who plan for quality from the outset.We continued discussions over dinner on the first night, where the notion of "Fridge Terrorism" was the spectre on which hung the future security of the Internet-of-Things.  Not only could hackers of the future try to gain control your home devices, but also WiFi will eventually be replaced by LiFi, ubiquitous information channels activated by modulated light sources.  You might walk under a street lamp and upload your life from smart wearables.  All of this meant that the need for rigorous quality assurance was always going to be with us.   The Conference dinner event, held in the Russell Hotel, Russell Square, London
  • We are pleased to invite you to the presentation of ARTIST in the European Project Space (EPS) Session – Cloud Computing, Smart Cities and Green ICT Systems on Thursday May 21 at 16:00 CET. The session is taking place within the 5th International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science (CLOSER 2015).
    The EPS program is available here

  • This year’s CompArch & WICSA conferences were a full success for CloudScale. We are happy that our QoSA paper about definitions and metrics for scalability, elasticity, and efficiency won the best paper award. Also our paper at the FoSADA workshop about evaluating design assistants like Architectural Templates fostered productive discussions. At CompArch’s and WICSA’s poster session, we introduced several conference participants to the CloudScale Method. Check our Twitter (https://twitter.com/cloudscaleeu) for pictures.

OCEAN - support for Open Cloud projects, Yuri Glikman, Fraunhofer FOKUS
OCEAN is maintaining an online directory of FLOSS outcomes of cloud projects. The project provides a functional mapping of these outcomes, in relation with key standards and reference models from leading standardization organizations such as NIST, ETSI, DMTF, OGF, in what we call an Open Cloud Interoperability Framework and Roadmap. OCEAN supports projects by providing an online service, based on the ETICS framework enabling open cloud projects to build, test and check the quality of their software. OCEAN is also co-organising Cloud Plugfests to foster cooperation and integration between projects.

OCEAN Project Final Review

As a EU-supported collaborative project, OCEAN is having its final review in Brussels on January 29, 2015. This does not mean all work will stop, on the contrary! Experience gained in the project as well as some of its outputs such as the Open Cloud Directory are to be reused into AppHub, the sequel to OCEAN.
