agile testing- Agile testing is a critical component of agile integration, in which development teams strive to maintain a continuous, stable build that is suitable for release at any given time. With agile testing, tests are integral—not ancillary—to the primary software creation process and provide the feedback necessary for developers to iterate the next, incremental build.

apache Hadoop – Apache Hadoop data systems are not limited in their scale. More hardware and clusters can be added to handle more load without reconfiguration and purchasing expensive software licenses.

When business processes all filter through these large applications, everything works smoothly. But these applications do not always offer the most innovative solution to a common business problem.

Business Intelligence – While the term “business intelligence” describes both a methodology and a category of enterprise software, the primary activity in business intelligence is data analysis.
