  • Watch this 5 minute video to learn about credential stuffing attack and how adversaries use stolen usernames and passwords to hijack accounts.
  • 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

  • In the application economy, you have to deliver software as if your business depends on it … because it does! It’s a bold statement, but true. Think of nearly every interaction a person might have today—be it for work, commerce or play. Most have a digital dimension, which relies on digital technology and platforms.

    In order to survive and grow, every company needs to become a technology company and every business needs to become a digital business. Successful transformation requires Continuous Delivery, the new business imperative that enables you to rapidly develop and deliver applications that drive superior user experiences and engage your customers and staff.

    But the traditional “software factory” or process for transforming an idea into a customer experience is throttled by a number of bottlenecks in the delivery pipeline. That means delivering innovative, high-quality applications, faster and more frequently can be a chaotic and complex process, particularly if your application delivery systems and processes were designed to only push out one or two releases a year.

    Moderator Alan Shimel, DevOps.com; and experts Chris Rowett, CA Technologies and Julie Craig, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and Anbu Muppidathi, Cognizant discuss ways to overcome today’s application economy challenges with solutions designed to transform your software delivery lifecycle into a continuous delivery pipeline of digital innovation.
  • Hyperconverged technology is a term used to describe what some
    vendors are calling 'infrastructure in a box' or 'all-in-one solution.' Virtualization and storage
    administrators understand that it can make sense to couple virtualized
    storage with a virtualized server instance in some cases to create a
    virtualized infrastructure.
    However, there are several issues to consider before plunging into a hyperconverged deployment.

    This session will discuss the applications benefiting from a hyper converged solution and how it fits into your data center.
  • Wie Sie sicher wissen, untersagt das deutsche Bundesdatenschutzgesetz in seiner Zweckbindungsklausel das Verwenden von sensitiven Echtdaten in Test-, Entwicklungs- und Schulungssystemen. Dennoch sehen wir, dass eine Vielzahl von Unternehmen dieses Risiko immer noch eingeht und sich davor scheut, die nötigen Anpassungen durchzuführen.

    Die deutsche Versicherungswirtschaft begegnet diesem Thema mit dem Code of Conduct über den GDV als Vorreiter nun offensiv.

    Der GDV (Gesamtverband der deutschen Versicherer) ist der erste Verband in Deutschland, der für eine freiwillige Selbstverpflichtung zum Schutz von personenbezogenen Versichertendaten die Zustimmung der Datenschutzbehörden erhalten hat.

    Sämtliche deutschen Versicherungsunternehmen die dem Code of Conduct (CoC) bis Ende 2014 beigetreten sind haben sich damit verpflichtet, dem Datenschutzkodex des GDV innerhalb von 3 Jahren gerecht zu werden.

    Mit den neuen Verhaltensregeln wird transparent, was von der Antragstellung bis zur Schadenregulierung mit personenbezogenen Daten geschieht.

    Lernen Sie wie Informatica die Anforderungen aus dem CoC (Anonymisierung für sensitive Daten in Produktion sowie Test & Entwicklung) umsetzt und gleichzeitig Ihr Testdatenmanagement modernisieren kann.

    Da gemäß BSDSG als auch neuester EU-Novelle Datenschutz ein branchenübergreifendes Thema ist, sind alle Interessenten herzlich zu diesem Webinar eingeladen, die direkt (z.B. Datenschützer) oder indirekt (z.B. Test-Manager, Enterprise Architekten) mit dem Thema konfrontiert werden.

    The role of the CMO is more complex than ever before, and the battle to win over the customer can appear daunting. With over 120 digital marketing channels to choose from, and more than 2,400 products available to manage them, it is inevitable that marketing technology takes a driving seat. More technology means the CMO has now set up camp in the CIO's territory.

    But this doesn't have to lead to the next office battleground (we all remember the Great Sales & Marketing Wars of the '90s, right?); there is a way forward.

    We'll explain how marketing and IT executives can make cross-functional, cross-methodology teams work, without fisticuffs. We'll cover best practices to reduce fire drills, manage resources, and drive productivity. Those siloes that are in the way? Look out because we're going to bust 'em. Like peanut butter and chocolate, the CMO and CIO can work together to deliver awesome, tasty, results - we'll show you how that begins.

    After this webinar, you'll:

    * Identify problem communication areas within your organization that can lead to internal war
    * Learn how to speak fluent CIO, and discover your inner process junkie
    * Discover new, exciting acronyms, and find out why they're deadly important to your continue growth
    * Find out why fluidity will be the next big thing in executive circles

    It's time to sign up to avoid a war, not create one. Join us...

  • In the application economy, applications are the face of your business. Poorly performing applications and outages cost time and money. Just as importantly, bad applications can negatively impact user satisfaction and hurt an organization’s brand image. It is more important than ever to address performance and availability issues early in the software development lifecycle (SDLC). CA Application Performance Management (APM) can uniquely go wide (end to end) and at the same time provide deep visibility with low overhead. By making CA APM part of every phase of the SDLC organizations can achieve the goal of “Catch Early and Fix Early” and avoid bad applications from going into production.

    In this webcast you will learn:
    • Why it is important to catch and fix performance problems early
    • How teams can leverage CA APM to enhance team productivity
    • How CA APM enables collaboration that breaks down barriers between dev and ops
