  • Continuous Delivery = Agile + DevOps: Learn more with Guest Forrester
    Continuous Delivery = Agile + DevOps: Learn more with Guest Forrester Forrester VP and Principal Analyst, Diego Lo Giudice and Dan Rice, Agile Advisor, CA Technologies Recorded: Mar 2 2017 59 mins
    The Global Agile Software Application Development Online Survey from Forrester Research, Inc. shows that a third of firms have been practicing agile for more than five years, and 54% have successfully scaled their Agile practices to more than half their teams.*

    People who practice agile methods often talk about "pulling quality forward." This and other agile tenets (delivering early and often, reducing batch size, inspecting and adapting, creating a collaborative culture and focusing on customer value) are designed to help organizations get valuable, high-quality features out the door, fast. But they can't happen just in engineering: agile succeeds as a mindset that's systemic throughout your organization.

    Join CA Technologies and guest speaker Diego Lo Giudice, Forrester VP and Principal Analyst in Application Development + Delivery to find out how YOU can help make your business an agile business by implementing agile both upstream (through your business portfolio) AND downstream (through testing and operations).

    If you're ready for a strategic, collaborative approach to delivering value to customers, then you won’t want to miss this webinar.

  • DevOps and the Mainframe: Your Partners in Velocity, Quality, and Value
    DevOps and the Mainframe: Your Partners in Velocity, Quality, and Value Rob Stroud, Principal Analyst at Forrester, and Dana Boudreau, Senior Director of Product Management at CA Technologies Recorded: Feb 22 2017 58 mins
    In the application economy where traditional business is being disrupted, velocity, agility, quality and customer experience is critical for enterprises to drive differentiation to remain competitive. While many believe that DevOps is only for startups and unicorns, forward-thinking organizations are focusing on unlocking the potential of their mainframe investments to drive their Business Technology culture, leveraging DevOps practices including agile development, automated CI/CD pipelines, testing and release automation, to deliver differentiated products and services.

    Join guest speaker Rob Stroud, Principal Analyst at Forrester, and Dana Boudreau, Senior Director of Product Management at CA Technologies, for an in-depth discussion on how bringing DevOps to the mainframe can challenge traditional development methodologies, delivering code faster with greater quality in responding to escalating market demands.

  • Keeping Applications Compliant and Secure Using ARA
    Keeping Applications Compliant and Secure Using ARA Keith Puzey, CA Technologies Recorded: Feb 16 2017 25 mins
    Are you burdened with regulatory mandates that require the proper compliance controls and audit trails? Do last-minute security updates hold-up your application releases—or more problematic, have you missed security patches that impacted the business?

    In this 30-minute webcast:
    -Discover what it means to shift your security thinking left and incrementally improve security as part of your continuous delivery practice.
    -Learn how you can apply the right levels of governance, gain end-to-end transparency and ensure full auditability of your releases.
    -See how an Application Release Automation (ARA) solution like CA Release Automation enables you to deliver applications with the agility and speed required by your business while enabling you to stay in control.

    At the end of this webcast, you’ll have insights into how to mitigate digital risks as you apply continuous delivery practices.
  • Make API Driven Testing the Object of Your Affection this Valentine Day
    Make API Driven Testing the Object of Your Affection this Valentine Day Nathan Devoll, CA Technologies Recorded: Feb 14 2017 56 mins
    For organizations with legacy and/or proprietary applications one of the biggest challenges to automating more tests can be the failure of test automation tools to recognize objects. In addition to identifying objects finding a tool that can automate testing across all the different protocols of these applications can also be a major challenge.

    During this webcast we’ll share with you two stories shared at CA World from GM and Williams Energy on how they were able to accelerate testing by shifting to an API strategy. During the session we’ll cover how CA’s DevTest solution help clients:

    •Shift testing from the UI to the API
    •Decrease maintenance efforts and run times for regression tests
    •Use a single tool to automate testing across the full stack
    •Incorporate testing into continuous integration efforts

    In addition to talking about GM and Williams energy we’ll also share additional real world stories on how others have adopted DevTest to delight their management teams and increase speed to market.
  • Service Virtualization: A Critical Component of Any Continuous Delivery Strategy
    Service Virtualization: A Critical Component of Any Continuous Delivery Strategy Regan Walker Director of DevTest Presales CA Technologies Recorded: Feb 8 2017 56 mins
    By continuously delivering new features and releases, an organization can better meet the demands of consumers and outmaneuver its competitors. Test automation helps these efforts greatly, but how do you get access to all the systems and services a team needs to continuously test throughout the software development lifecycle?

    This is where service virtualization comes into play. You can test and develop under realistic conditions without needing to access production systems, purchase hardware or software for test environments, or pay third-party access fees.

    Watch this session to discover why service virtualization is a critical component of any continuous delivery strategy. You will learn how to:

    - Create lifelike copies of APIs, services, and systems
    - Get access to all the systems you need to run your tests
    - Vary and control run conditions
    - Shift left in your development and testing while using service virtualization
  • How to Build the Right Automation
    How to Build the Right Automation Huw Price, CA Technologies Recorded: Jan 24 2017 62 mins
    Many companies are investing heavily in automation. Good high quality automation is key as companies move towards a successful DevOps model. The problem is that automation scripts can be very brittle and tend to not cover or test the entire application. They are also very difficult and time consuming to keep up to date.

    See how you can design, create and update automation scripts as well as their associated test data and end points.

  • 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
