  • The application lifecycle is accelerating. And now you have multiple datacenter and cloud environments to manage. Traditional management tools just don’t fit a rapidly evolving landscape of applications, clouds and users. Like it or not, the cloud is hybrid. How are you going to manage your hybrid cloud world?

    Guest speaker, Forrester Research, Inc.’s Dave Bartoletti will reveal:
    •Typical hybrid cloud management challenges
    •Essential cloud management capabilities
    •Picking the right tools for application lifecycle success

    David Cope will also share how CliQr customers benefit from application-defined cloud management.
  • Connecting assets to audiences with speed and scale requires a data integration solution that allows you to integrate in real time via APIs, do batch tasks such as data ingestion or synchronization and handle a variety of data sources -- from JSON to XML to EDI. With Mule 3.7, we introduced DataWeave, a simple, powerful way to query and transform all types of data.

    We’ll be showcasing the power of DataWeave in the following scenarios:
    - Highly performant mappings and transformations
    - Simple one-to-one mappings
    - Complex mappings (e.g. joins, filtering, partitioning)-
    - Easy to write, easy to maintain, metadata aware mappings
  • Network-dense, interconnection-oriented facilities are not easy to replicate and are typically able to charge higher prices for colocation, as well as charge for cross-connects and, in some cases, access to public Internet exchange platforms and cloud platforms. Mobility, the Internet of Things, SaaS, IaaS and content delivery all depend on network performance. This presentation will look at the following issues:

    - How will Open-IX and the launch of European-model exchanges impact the interconnection market?
    - What are the networking and datacenter technologies that can disrupt this market?
    - What are the advantages of Direct Connect services?

  • We know that DevOps principles and patterns have been pioneered by the “unicorns,” the likes of Google, Amazon, Facebook, Netflix, Twitter and so forth, doing tens, hundreds or even thousands of deployments per day, while preserving world-class availability, reliability and security. However, unique challenges exist when DevOps transformations are undertaken in large, complex organizations.

    The unique challenges include legacy applications, lack of automated testing, tightly coupled architectures, operating in regulated industries, powerful change management approval boards, security and compliance requirements, low trust bureaucratic cultures, and so on.

    However, large, complex organizations are successfully transforming using DevOps, such as GE, Macy’s, Ticketmaster/LiveNation, Barclay’s, Nordstorm, Target, Raytheon.

    In this webinar, Damon Edwards, Gary Gruver, John Willis, and Gene Kim will share their experiences and lessons learned about the unique challenges and solutions of implementing DevOps in large, complex organizations. They will also include lessons learned from the DevOps Enterprise Summit 2014 and goals for the conference this year.

    Panelists Include:
    -- Gene Kim, CTO, Tripwire;
    -- Damon Edwards, Managing Partner, DTO Solutions, Inc;
    -- Gary Gruver, author and experience technologist in Continuous Delivery and DevOps;
    -- John Willis, author and evangelist at Docker, Inc.
  • Low-code platforms have become a critical factor in helping AD&D organizations rapidly deliver applications to win, serve and retain customers.

    With these platforms, enterprises are routinely delivering apps much faster than conventional methods. But can these platforms truly scale across the full modern app lifecycle? What are the top use cases for deploying a low-code platform?

    Join John Rymer of Forrester Research for an engaging discussion about the innovative ways organizations are utilizing low-code platforms across the app lifecycle. Hear from IT executives with Autoliv, Estafeta and NES Financial as they talk candidly about how low-code platforms have driven growth and competitive advantage in their organizations.
  • Speed. Quality. Innovation. That is what you are tasked with day in and day out... delivering superior user experiences that excite and engage your customers. But every benefit of beating your competition to market disappears if the app fails to perform in production. With development now happening in sprints, testing can no longer be sequential. Quality must be a focal point at every stage in the SDLC.

    In this session, learn how to “shift quality left” to make QA more than just a single step in the SDLC. By automating the creation of test and virtual services, and enabling access to realistic test data and scenarios early in the SDLC is key, you can drive a pervasive, continuous quality process integrated earlier throughout the development process.
  • In today’s application economy, companies like TIAA CREF are focused on getting applications to market faster, without sacrificing quality—continuing to provide great customer experiences. This requires retooling how you deliver applications, including focusing on smaller batches of work, automating test and deployment, and reducing ‘release drama’ along the way. This session highlights how TIAA CREF was able to automate the delivery pipeline, testing and infrastructure configuration to significantly improve their application delivery process, application quality and team collaboration.
  • In the Age of the Customer, applications are the face of your business and it is more important than ever to address performance and availability issues early in the software development lifecycle - before they get a chance to impact end users. Using Application Performance Management (APM) in pre-production is a best practice for creating and delivering applications that perform well and provide a great user experience.

    In this session, Forrester Research guest speaker Milan Hanson discusses trends and directions for usage of APM in pre-production. And he relays results from the recent Forrester Consulting TEI Study for CA Application Performance Management (CA APM) illustrating the value in both pre-production and production.

    To gain a better understanding of the best practices you should consider from the following topics, Milan will dive into:
    • The importance of addressing performance issues in pre-production
    • Trends and directions for the usage of APM in pre-production
    • The value of CA APM according to the Forrester Consulting TEI Study
  • Many people working in software development spend their careers without seeing what good looks like. Our history is littered with inefficient processes creating poor quality output, too late to capitalise on the expected business value. How have we got to this state? How do we get past it? What does good really look like?
    Continuous Delivery changes the economics of software development, find out how and why.
  • With cloud computing now becoming a mainstream technology for most companies, new opportunities have emerged for cloud and hosting providers that extend beyond their traditional infrastructure-focused businesses. The most interesting changes in cloud infrastructure, applications and services are yet to come.

    A key characteristic of Cloud 2.0 is that 70% of the opportunity is beyond infrastructure hosting, with application, managed and security services demand growing from enterprises. To capture this providers must continue to evolve their offerings to meet the increasingly complex demands of customers who are now in the driver's seat. These customers need not only infrastructure, but also wrap-around services and support that they have come to expect from their corporate IT departments.

    During this data-driven discussion you will learn:

    - What Cloud 2.0 means for your business
    - Cloud adoption trends
    - How to innovate without risk
    - Who are the primary decision makers
    - How customers choose a service provider and what requirements are important to them
    - Where customers allocate their budgets
  • DevOps methods enable teams to ship software more quickly and frequently but that advantage is negated unless the reliability and sustainability practices of operations teams are included throughout planning and execution. Too many organizations that rapidly ‘sheep dip’ development teams in Agile practices that focus at the team level ignore the implications that arise at production scale. Join this exclusive webinar with Dan North of DNA who will discuss how enterprise IT teams can enable collaboration without coercion. Attendees will learn how optimizations can be leveraged across both dev and ops teams so that the constraints that arise in stovepiped approaches are avoided.
  • Every year, retail companies are seeing more of their revenue shift to the ecommerce part of their business during the holiday season. For 2015, revenue from ecommerce sites during the holidays is forecasted to yield over $82 Billion, an increase of 14% over 2014. With this amount of retail revenue moving to ecommerce sites, companies cannot afford to have any downtime that might deter customers from accessing their site and or having a smooth customer experience. Of all the ways an ecommerce site might be affected to upset a business during a busy revenue-generating holiday season, cyber breaches are usually not thought as one of them until it’s too late.

    Security breaches are an increasingly damaging threat within the retail and ecommerce industry and can disrupt the availability and revenue of ecommerce and retail businesses. In some cases, several of the highest–profile breaches have occurred to household names, and have resulted in millions of records being released–at the cost of tens of millions of dollars–and in at least one case, costing executives their jobs. It is of course important that all retail organizations learn lessons from these breaches so as to not duplicate errors from the past.

    In preparation for one of the biggest revenue seasons of the year for ecommerce and Retail, Tricia Pattee, Security Product Manager from HOSTING and Paul Fletcher, Security Evangelist from Alert Logic will provide insight into the latest cyber security trends related to ecommerce and retail as well as the following:
    · Examine the attack vectors and the profile of the threat actors of cyber attacks
    · Provide an understanding of the weaknesses and vulnerabilities that are affecting retail and ecommerce companies
    · Discuss defenses against the retail and ecommerce-related breaches to help detect and prevent copycat attackers
  • We've all heard how DevOps can greatly accelerate velocity and efficiency. The challenge is how to transform an enterprise which was not born with the cloud, with established processes and systems. Join us on this webinar and hear how HP IT is making the move from:
    • organizational silos to integrated teams and continuous delivery pipelines
    • physical systems and storage to cloud infrastructure and Docker containers
    • templates and forms to infrastructure-as-code
