  • The answer is YES! The ‘I’ in team doesn’t represent one single person in the apps development plan, rather it highlights the transformation of the once silo’d teams who support specific functions within the app lifecycle. The straight line of the ‘I’ symbolizes the one team approach that is making DevOps successful. Operations people are showing up in the testing phase of the application and the apps people are doing some measures and monitoring in operations. Recently, TechTarget named DevOps as one of six major data center trends for 2015. DevOps is no longer a new way to think about transformation; it is the ONLY way to bring together the silos that weigh down your business’ bottom line.

  • The importance of an effective PPM solution is undisputed. Companies around the world have been using CA PPM (formerly Clarity) for more than ten years, and new companies are deploying it every day. With such a huge install base and so much historical use, why then do some companies still struggle with successful deployments?

    It all comes down to The Lost Art of User Adoption.

    Too often we see organizations pat themselves on the back for designing and implementing the perfect PPM solution, assuming that their users understand the how and the why as well as the project sponsors do. And when the new system gets turned over to the users, the organization is surprised when the users question it, or outright reject it. In hindsight, a small investment in User Adoption would have gone a long, long way.

    In this 60 minute webinar, we'll cover:

    •Why User Adoption Matters
    •It Seems Expensive! Is It Worth It?
    •Understanding the Challenges
    •One Size Does Not Fit All – Designing the Perfect User Adoption Program

  • Viele Entwicklerteams mit SAP-Systemen leiden unter Einschränkungen beim Testen durch veraltete oder falsche Testdaten, verursacht durch lange und schwierige System-Refreshs.

    SAP-Systemumgebungen stehen aufgrund ihrer hohen Kosten nur limitiert zur Verfügung, eine kurzfristige Bereitstellung von Zusatzsystemen ist nur erschwert möglich.
    Darunter leidet die Software-Qualität und das IT-Budget.
    Unsere Kunden können mit CA-SV diese Systeme simulieren und damit für Integrationstests mit anderen SAP oder Nicht-SAP Umgebungen zur Verfügung stellen. Die Daten sind dadurch aktuell und für alle Testanforderungen konsistent. Bisherige Wartezeiten entfallen und Fehler durch schlechte Testdaten in der Produktion werden vermieden.
  • The rise of malware and malicious insiders brings application security into clear focus. Well written software, security testing and code obfuscation mitigate risk but the most critical applications in the most risky locations need to go one step further to become tamper resistant. Trusted applications that handle sensitive data, control valuable IP and perform critical processes can be isolated and protected within secure execution environments. Mobile phones, embedded devices and data center servers all adopt physical hardening to secure the applications they host. This webinar focuses on protecting business applications that support high-tech manufacturing, content distribution, online authentication – in fact any situation where you need to know for sure that your application is doing precisely what the developer intended – nothing more, nothing less.
  • In the past, most traditional test automation focused on the UI and not the back-end. This was a leftover mindset from the days of "just throw it over the wall”. With the current shift in how teams are organized, the skillset for testing is evolving. Dev/Ops, continuous delivery, mobile, cloud and the Internet of Things is forcing a rapid pace of development. Now, QA professionals and business analysts are more ingrained in the overall development process from start to finish. Now that software development for different platforms are using a “shift-left” approach (which involves moving testing to earlier in the software development lifecycle), it is requiring test automation engineers to enhance their technical skills.

    Join Clint Sprauve, Senior Product Marketing Manager for HP Functional Testing, and learn about:

    • API and web services testing early in the development lifecycle
    • How to shift-left with non-technical testers
    • Best practices for proper test automation in Agile and continuous testing processes
  • The drive to agile development, faster delivery and DevOps has resulted in a major reduction in the scope and frequency of performance testing, primarily due to the need to reduce cycle times, and the difficulty of executing large scale tests earlier in the process. This has also led to a proliferation of test technologies selected by individual projects to cover only their specific needs, causing reduced test case reuse and inconsistency in results.

    Reduced delivery times, instant and ubiquitous user feedback and reduced testing is a potentially toxic combination for organizations.

    Performance Engineering is the new discipline of smarter, more flexible testing executed earlier in the process, delivering actionable and repeatable results including accurate performance data enabling issues to be addressed faster and at lower cost. Performance Engineering is not about a specific technology or product, but it is about reducing rework, maximizing automation and increasing feedback.

    Join this webinar to learn more about Performance Engineering and how HP’s Performance Engineering solutions can help you on the path towards continuous business feedback and improvement, built-in and automated performance, optimized applications for business and customer value, and collaborative and interactive teams focused on quality.
  • The rise of enterprise trends such as bring your own device (BYOD), increased use of cloud and network based services and the need to ensure optimum performance, makes added user authentication measures vital.

  • Cloud computing is all about improving agility and efficiency for organisations but the focus is often on the speed to provision infrastructure and services. But what about all the ongoing management and maintenance processes that go with it? If you are going to improve the deployment of services using public or private cloud it is important to look at how you improve the efficiency of the processes around it.

    Learn how process automation technology can help you automate common tasks and processes to improve the speed of delivery, improve the quality of services and take out cost.
  • When a leading bank states that “in online mortgage sales, a simple change in the colour of a Website calculator resulted in a 10% increase in sales”, it is a reminder of the significant impact the smallest updates in a digital presence can have. However, DevOps adoption faces a major barrier in the enterprise in overcoming organisational debt – historical decisions that will constrain transformation and quick release cycles.
    This webinar explores:
    •the value of marginal gains made through incremental improvements
    •the pitfalls of marginal losses that can build into significant organisational debt
    •and highlights ways in which DevOps can overcome challenges to make a positive impact
