I will use this space to point to interesting new developments and research in the software quality assurance and testing area as well as covering general AD and Agile topics.  We have a lot of great new research underway including a MarketScope for ALM.  ALM has been a hot topic for several years now and the market is slowly begining to take shape evolving from vendors buying and buildling huge suites of management and task oriented tools (e.g. Test Case Managment and Automated Functioal Testing) to focus on the overall governance of delivering software and aiding cross functional collaboration.  Much of the evolution has fit together with the general shift toward Agile practices and current tools have good support for these and also provide the required balance of management reporting combined with team member agility.
