Newer development models, such as Agile, frequently employ test-driven development, which means the developer is being asked to shoulder an increasing portion of the testing before software is sent to the team of formal testers.

Usually, the IBM i process that builds the data starts at 7:00 p.m. and the Windows process grabs the data at 8:00 p.m. Over the years, you've never had a problem because the IBM i process started one hour before the Windows process. But your business has grown and so has your data processing. The result is that the IBM i process runs longer each day.
