  • Driving Continuous Delivery with Service Virtualization Driving Continuous Delivery with Service Virtualization Heather Peyton and Tanvi Mehta, CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 21 2016 44 mins
    Companies need to look for new ways to work in quality innovative applications in and out of the development and testing lifecycle. By continuously delivering new features and releases more quickly, an organization can better meet the demands of consumers and outmaneuver its competitors. But how to maintain quality in an always moving delivery cycle remains a core challenge.

    Join us and learn how other orgs are enabling continuous delivery by using service virtualization. During this session will explain how CA Service Virtualization works and helps eliminate constraints across the software lifecycle, allowing developers, testers, and performance teams to work in parallel for faster delivery and more reliable outcomes. You’ll also learn how CA Service Virtualization:

    •Replicates production like dependencies for testing
    •Helps you control inputs like response times, so you can do more negative testing
    •Virtualize 3rd party services so they are accessible all the time without fees
    •Reproduces production defects for faster remediation
    •Eliminates scheduling conflicts and enable parallel development
  • Take a Requirements-Driven Approach to Better Software Take a Requirements-Driven Approach to Better Software Jonathon Wright, Director of Digital Assurance, CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 20 2016 60 mins
    Case studies show that the vast majority of defects creating havoc in production software are not introduced by developers or testers, but by requirements. Rather than alleviating this problem, agile development practices have introduced a new one: Testers must navigate a constant barrage of disparate user stories and change requests.

    In order for development teams to keep up with constantly changing user needs, requirements must be captured in a format that minimizes miscommunication, reacts quickly to change, and enables subsequent test assets to be derived automatically.

    Learn a requirements-driven approach that:
    - Captures user needs in a format already familiar to business analysts
    - Allows testers to automatically generate optimized test cases, test scripts, data, and expected results
    - Automatically reflects changes made to the requirements in the test assets

    Testing quickly doesn’t mean you have to test poorly. The goal of agile development teams today is to test quickly and completely.

    See how CA Agile Requirements Designer and CA Test Data Manager help teams define test cases from product requirements and then assign test data to match the generated test cases. This powerful combination helps you deliver quality applications faster. Inclusive of a demo, you can expect to learn:

    - Define and generate test cases from product requirements
    - Match test cases to test data
    - Quickly generate test data needed
    - Deliver quality applications more quickly with an automated approach
  • What does the GDPR mean to you? What does the GDPR mean to you? Arif Muhammad, Director Product Management and Wilfred Mathanaraj, Product Owner TDM, CA Technologies Recorded: Aug 17 2016 42 mins
    There's new legislation in place, that's expanded the definition of personal data and puts IT and testing departments on high alert to safeguard personal data, across testing and development environments. It's the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Are you ready for it?

    In this session, we’ll demonstrate how CA Test Data Manager helps to both mask your production data and to generate synthetic test data; a powerful combination to help you meet compliance needs and deliver quality applications. There will be a short section on the future of the tester self-service model that will enable testers to efficiently get access to the right test data.

  • Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Nathan Devoll, SV Consultant, CA Technologies Recorded: Jul 26 2016 54 mins
    Traditional performance testing typically requires that all components of the application are “completed,” integrated and deployed into an appropriate environment. This results in testing not being done until late in the delivery cycle or sometimes skipped entirely. Which can then lead to a less then optimal user experience, expensive rework and potential loss of business.

    Many organizations are adopting service virtualization to overcome the key challenges associated with performance testing. During this session see why and specifically how service virtualization:
    •Enables you to do testing early in the dev cycle by simulating unavailable production systems and missing components
    •Helps you control the inputs (like response times and 3rd party system responses) so you can do more negative and exploratory testing
    •Provisions performance test environments “in a box” for on-demand testing
    •Works with CA APM so that you can monitor an app during a load and performance test and see how the app reacts
  • What Came First - the Model or the Test? What Came First - the Model or the Test? Huw Price, CA Technologies and Paul Gerrard, Gerrard Consulting Recorded: Jul 20 2016 63 mins
    All testing relies on modelling, but “test models are the only way forward for testers and businesses”, according to Paul Gerrard, Principal at Gerrard Consulting. This session reviews the use of modelling in testing and illustrate, using real life examples, how chaos and carnage is being replaced with structured order.
    Paul sets out his vision for a “New Model of Testing” which puts models at the heart of high quality, efficient testing. This will be accompanied by a practical demonstration of how model-based approaches can be applied within a state-of-the-art DevOps framework including:
    •How models can be used to capture accurately ever changing business requirements
    •The “Shift left” effect of formal modelling for testing, where test cases, scripts, data and expected results can all be generated from the initial design
    •How the testing assets derived from a model can be updated automatically, so that testing keeps up with the rate at which user needs change

    Continuous delivery is a journey and application release automation (ARA) is its lynchpin. As application delivery becomes more streamlined and risk-free through automation, additional challenges emerge as the velocity, volume and complexity of multi-team, composite applications grow.

    Are you ready to take your continuous delivery journey to the next level? CA Release Automation offers exciting capabilities for DevOps managers and other stakeholders to jointly plan, orchestrate and optimize complex releases—without compromising speed or quality.

    This session covers capabilities like:
    •Plan and execute a multi-app release, including sequencing deployment dependencies between apps
    •Actively monitor release deployment progress
    •Integrate your tools of choice directly into your continuous delivery tool chain
    •Automate the promotion of releases through all stages of the release pipeline
    •Link to release content from CA Agile Central or Jira and track its progression through a release cycle
    •Govern and optimize the release cycle with the continuous delivery dashboard

    Learn how to master complex, multi-app releases before they become your next bottleneck.
