Software Testing News May 2021
Today we cast our eyes back to last month’s top news stories. Software testing news May 2021 yielded many reports of innovative behaviour, something we at eTestware applaud. Indeed, as part of theICEway, one of our core values is innovation.
European software vendors valued higher than US counterparts
This story revealed the findings of a survey conducted by Garnier & Co. When assessing the stock market value on both the simple sales multiple and average growth, EU vendors emerge on top. They also have a higher valuation premium at ~ 9%.
More details on the study are here. It was based upon an analysis of 95 European-listed and 97 US-listed software vendors. The comparison period was 2006 to 2020.
Irish Government refuses to give in to ransomware
The government decided to maintain a hard line with hackers who stole data from the Irish Health Service Executive (HSE). This story reveals that a decryption tool was given to the HSE by the hackers. Designed to allow the HSE to unlock its IT systems, many saw this as an encouraging development. Instead though, the HSE will continue with its own efforts to rebuild the IT infrastructure.
AI test to help treat UK bowel cancer patients
As part of theICEway ecosystem, we are proud to help clients in healthcare. This story then, naturally caught our attention. It seems that an artificial intelligence-based technique has been developed to examine AREG and EREG protein levels. Hopefully the technique will help boost the chances of bowel cancer being identified earlier.
