  • This webinar will discuss strategies to help you save money in the AWS Cloud. From turning systems off at night, to implementing bidding strategies on the spot market, there are many ways in which you can manage and reduce your costs with AWS.
  • Traditional testing methods do not fit well for the DevOps world. They simply are not suited for the velocity or volume of changes required to achieve Continuous Delivery. With 70% of test cases written manually and almost 50% of SDLC costs taken up by testing, it is clear that more of the testing effort needs to be automated.

    Like test case design, creating test data from scratch is labor intensive, costly and error prone. It rarely leads to the creation of realistic data fitted for the specific business purpose. As a result, testing is too slow and lets too many defects slip through, so that only a fraction of desired functionality is delivered, and the customer experience goes downhill in the end.

    Join the discussion to explore:
    - The various testing related constraints to Continuous Delivery
    - How effective Test Case Design and Test Data Management methods and tools can help facilitate Agile Development and Continuous Delivery
    - Testing best practices today and what the future of testing looks like

  • Today’s banking customers are a demanding bunch. They expect mobility, transparency, instant access, and competitive products from their providers. In response, financial institutions are hard at work optimizing online and mobile banking. However, all too often, the solutions and apps they create fall short of the mark.

    At the same time, technology advancements are making it easier than ever for small, agile fintech startups to quickly turn ideas into marketable products across multiple channels, including wearables.

    To compete in the digital age, banks must deliver smart, friendly technology, and they must do it quickly. The best way to do this is to partner with the experts. Leading banks and fintech firms need one another to thrive, if not survive.

  • CA Release Automation and Skytap Environments-as-a-Service Webinar

    We’ve all seen the cooking show where the chef is showing the host a new recipe, and then “voilá!” out of the oven pops a fully baked dish, without the wait time. When multiple teams can develop, deploy and test in parallel using exact, instant clones of the target deployment environment, it’s like having one of those magic time-warp ovens for baking software releases. Discover how you can easily integrate instant cloud-based environment provisioning directly within automated application deployment workflows, and get out of the business of messing with infrastructure recipes. Join us for this webcast and learn how combining Skytap EaaS with CA’s leading Release Automation solution, you can:
    . Easily harness the complexity and volume of applications, tools and environments inherent in continuous delivery
    • Eliminate bottlenecks at every phase of the SLDC for faster release velocity, from the early provisioning of development infrastructure, through system, integration and acceptance testing and into production.
    • Use the CA Release Automation Action Pack for Skytap EaaS to provision/delete, copy, schedule, suspend and resume Skytap cloud environments on demand.
    • Use Skytap’s “golden template” capability to stamp out specified infrastructure completely within the context of the automated deployment workflow, without requiring additional coding or waiting for scripts to run.
  • Health plans push for their members to visit their primary care provider for a checkup. It improves health outcomes and reduces the medical spend from costs related to illness and disease. Like their members, health plans also need checkups that will identify the challenges to which they are increasingly exposed, such as issues around information security, revenue maximization, and staffing needs. In this webinar, we will discuss how to specifically deal with key issues related to each of these areas.
