  • How We Approached Evaluation of ALM Octane and Now Run Agile Testing
    How We Approached Evaluation of ALM Octane and Now Run Agile Testing
    Gerd Fladrich, Risang Sidik Recorded: May 16 2019 60 mins
    This webinar is brought to you by the Vivit Testing Quality ALM Special Interest Group (SIG).

    Join this webinar that will demonstrate how BNP Paribas started and performed evaluation of ALM Octane and is now using the tool to run complete agile testing lifecycles. The testing lifecycle will be presented as a live demo that follows Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) methodology and uses Gherkin notation for defining test suites.

    The testing lifecycle starts with definition of requirements and user stories, heavily builds on test automation and advanced reporting, manages and synchronizes defects across tools, and feeds learnings from testing back into the requirements. It uses an integrated development and testing infrastructure including products like Confluence, Jira, Micro Focus ALM, Micro Focus ALM Octane, Jenkins, GIT, Cucumber, IntelliJ, TestCafe, and others.

    BNP Paribas’s journey with agile test automation using ALM Octane started in 2017. The webinar presents in a nutshell how evaluation of ALM Octane was approached and conducted. It explains how new methods were introduced with the objective to leverage full tool functionality. The initiative has soon helped to increase testing efficiency and created important business value.

    Webinar participants will learn:

    • How BNP Paribas has conducted evaluation of ALM Octane
    • Why ALM Octane is much more than just a successor of ALM/Quality Center
    • How ALM Octane eases flexible management of its entire surrounding tool chain
    • Why methodology like BDD shall precede tools, and not vice versa
    • How Gherkin establishes a common language for the entire agile development lifecycle that helps integrating business, development, and testing
    • How to use ALM Octane for pipeline management, reporting, defect synchronization, import of performance testing and BPT results, integration of in-sprint testing etc.

    There are many challenges facing those who work in the ITSM field. It seems the most significant challenge is the constant changes, whether they are within the tools and customers you are supporting, the on-and-off boarding of employees, or the changes in your ITSM solution from upgrades or total replacement. The Micro Focus Adoption Readiness Tool can help you guard against these changes affecting your business.

    • How to stop your knowledge leaving the building when the SME’s move on
    • How to put together a knowledge repository and maintain your content efficiently
    • How to create new content on the fly
    • How to make this knowledge available for everyone at the point of need

    Kubernetes in the Cloud
    Matt Baldwin, NetApp and Former Founder StackPoint Cloud; Ingo Fuchs, NetApp; Mike Jochimsen, Kaminario Recorded: May 2 2019 61 mins
    Kubernetes (k8s) is an open-source system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes promises simplified management of cloud workloads at scale, whether on-premises, hybrid, or in a public cloud infrastructure, allowing effortless movement of workloads from cloud to cloud. By some reckonings, it is being deployed at a rate several times faster than virtualization.

    In this presentation, we’ll introduce Kubernetes and present use cases that make clear where and why you would want to use it in your IT environment. We’ll also focus on the enterprise requirements of orchestration and containerization, and specifically on the storage aspects and best practices.

    •What is Kubernetes? Why would you want to use it?
    •How does Kubernetes help in a multi-cloud/private cloud environment?
    •How does Kubernetes orchestrate & manage storage? Can Kubernetes use Docker?
    •How do we provide persistence and data protection?
    •Example use cases

    DevOps Adoption in The Real World – 3 Ways to Drive Test Centric Continuous Deli
    Julian Fish, Wes Godard Recorded: Apr 30 2019 59 mins
    As Enterprise DevOps adoption hits the mainstream, organizations are looking to streamline and simplify their Development and Testing practices through the use of Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD). Whilst CI and CD practices can provide significant benefits, such transformations are often led by Development teams, where little thought is given about the impact that the process and technology changes will have upon testing organizations, and the need to fully align all areas of the application delivery pipeline.
    In this live webinar, join Micro Focus to understand:
    • How development, test and release processes and pipelines can be easily and simply aligned
    • How test automation can be a core component of your CD pipeline and why an orchestrated DevOps toolchain is key to successful DevOps transformation
  • Introducing a Security Feedback Loop
    Introducing a Security Feedback Loop
    Dan Garfield, Chief Technology Evangelist, Codefresh.io Recorded: Apr 25 2019 31 mins
    We’re all looking at ways to prevent vulnerabilities from escaping into our production environments. Why not require scans of your Docker images before they’re even uploaded to your production Docker registry? SHIFT LEFT!

    When your engineers get information about security vulnerabilities earlier, they're more efficient with fixes!

    Join Codefresh, as we demonstrate setting up vulnerability and compliance thresholds in a CI pipeline. We will show you how to give your teams access to your Docker images’ security reports & trace back to your report from your production Kubernetes cluster using Codefresh.

  • Making Continuous Security in Applications a Reality
    Making Continuous Security in Applications a Reality
    Aaron Weaver - Application Security Architect, OWASP and DefectDojo Recorded: Apr 24 2019 43 mins
    You’ve probably heard many talks about DevSecOps and continuous security testing but how many provided the tools needed to actually start that testing? This talk does exactly that. It provides an overview of the open source AppSec Pipeline tool which has been used in real-world companies to do real security work. Beyond a stand-alone tool, the OWASP AppSec Pipeline provides numerous docker containers ready to automate, a specification to customize with the ability to create your own implementation and references to get you started.

    The talk will also cover how to add an AppSec Pipeline to your team’s arsenal and provide example templates of how best to run the automated tools provided. Finally, we’ll briefly cover using OWASP Defect Dojo to store and curate the issues found by your AppSec Pipeline. The goal of this talk is to share the field-tested methods of Aaron Weaver - If you want to start your DevSecOps journey by continuously testing rather then hear about it, this talk is for you.
