Capital One Financial Corp. Analyst Notes
On March 6, 2014, Capital One Financial Corp. (Capital One) announced that the Company has launched its annual Taxes and Savings Survey to find out how refund recipients are planning to use their dollars. According to the release, the survey stated that 80% expect to get a refund and more than half plan to spend the majority of the refund while 40% of people receiving a refund are saving the majority of it. Commenting on the release, Jim Kelly, Head of Direct Banking, Capital One, stated, "Four in five Americans are expecting to get tax refunds this year and most of them are already thinking about what they intend to do with the money. Whether your goal is to save for the future, pay down debt to help get your finances in order or even to spend all or some of your refund on something important to you, planning ahead is essential to help keep yourself on track. A tax refund isn't a year-end bonus or magic windfall, it's the government giving you some of your own money back, so it makes sense to think carefully about how you plan to use it, putting that refund to work for yourself and getting on a path to save more and invest in your financial future."

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
