  • Maximize Test Coverage and Software Security Maximize Test Coverage and Software Security Arif Muhammad and Abhijit Mugali CA Technologies Recorded: Jan 11 2017 55 mins
    Traditionally, test data management has involved copying, masking, and subsetting production data. While masking data does offer production-like data, it’s also slow, complex, and often error-prone, increasing the risk of sensitive information making it to less secure test environments.

    View this event to discover how synthetic data generation can create realistic test data that contains no sensitive information. What’s more, this test data will contain the negative paths, future scenarios, and outliers not typically found in production, providing the data needed to maximize test coverage.

    You will also learn:

    -The drawbacks of using production data in testing, from compliance to provisioning time and quality

    -How data visualization can be used to identify any data missing from production needed for rigorous testing

    -How masking can be combined with synthetic data generation to plug any gaps in test data
  • Testing in the New Digital World  - Meeting the Challenges Testing in the New Digital World - Meeting the Challenges Jonathon Wright, Director, Digital Assurance, CA Technologies and Paul Gerrard, Principal, Gerrard Consulting Recorded: Dec 7 2016 73 mins
    User expectations are shifting faster than ever and yet are set higher than ever before. The software landscape is therefore evolving rapidly to deliver higher quality software at an ever-greater pace. Testing must be able to keep up and move away from a traditional Core IT approach. Shifting to an Adaptive IT model calls for a new practice that requires accelerated communication, collaboration, integration, measurement and automation.

    Whether you label this as Digital Transformation or not, understanding the detail of this journey is an essential part of every organisation's journey to becoming a Digital Enterprise.

    Together with Paul Gerrard, Jonathon Wright will define what Digital Transformation is, its complexity and its risks, what Digital Assurance is from the process angle and then they’ll look at how models are being at the heart of testing, creating an essential ’blueprint’ for test design.
  • Tales in Testing - Paranormal Service Virtualization Use Cases Tales in Testing - Paranormal Service Virtualization Use Cases Jonathon Wright, Rick Bansal and Nathan Devoll from CA Technologies Recorded: Oct 27 2016 60 mins
    What happens when you have to test software disguised as hardware? How do you create test environments that effectively replicate the dependencies and performance of things like SmartMeters, security sensors and other IoT devices?

    Join this panel discussion on the strangest things they’ve seen clients use service virtualization to test. You’ll learn:
    •What service virtualization is
    •What is can be used to simulate
    •How it helps enable parallel development and testing
  • Gold copy data at your fingertips Gold copy data at your fingertips CA Recorded: Oct 27 2016 57 mins
    In order to deliver rigorously tested software which reflects changing user needs, testers require constant access to up-to-date data throughout the sprint. The data provisioning process at many organizations therefore needs to be rethought. Depending on an over-burdened, upstream team to find, create and provision data is not an option. Slow and complex extract and copies can take days or weeks, while there is no guarantee that the data delivered will in fact reflect the tests at hand.

    CA Test Data Manager offers a new approach to data provisioning which can remove the constraints and provide testers with the right data in minutes. View this session to find out how:
    • All the data needed to execute every test can be identified and created before it is requested by testers
    • Gold Copy Data can be stored as re-usable assets in a central Test Data Warehouse
    • Testers and developers can access rich data on demand, using a self-service web portal
    • Data can be made available in parallel, across versions, products and teams
    • Test Matching can ensure that the right data is provisioned to the right place, at the right time

    This end-to-end approach to Test Data Management means that that testers have the data they need, when they need it, to deliver rigorously tested software to market earlier and at less cost.
  • The Agile Enterprise is not a Myth…it's a Reality The Agile Enterprise is not a Myth…it's a Reality Dan Rice, Agile Advisor, Agile Management, Americas & EMEA Recorded: Oct 11 2016 61 mins
    Many companies experimenting with agile development methods in their engineering and IT groups are having only mixed success.

    Unless you’re implementing agile both upstream (through your portfolio) and downstream (through testing and operations,) you’re not harnessing agile’s full power through Digital Transformation. Being faster to market doesn’t help your bottom line if you deliver the wrong things, and failing to get the right things into production fast means you’re leaving money on the table.

    Join this web seminar to gain insight into the benefits of a digital transformation. You’ll discover a strategic, collaborative approach to channel the power of agile and deliver more value to your customers.

    You'll learn how to:
    Deliver value quickly in small increments across work streams
    Provide visibility into strategic initiatives that inform the process, from planning through delivery
    Support continuous delivery with automation
  • 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
