In this week’s Computer Weekly, we look at the future for Autonomy - the great British software firm that was acquired for £7bn by HP nearly a year ago - following founder Mike Lynch's shock departure. We examine the emerging best practice in software testing and growing adoption of the TMMi methodology. We go behind the scenes of the Marussia Formula 1 team to see how high-performance computing supports their bid for racing success. And the final part of our buyer's guide to desktop virtualisation looks at the implications of consumerisation and bring your own device (BYOD) schemes. Read the issue now.
