Creating seamless digital experiences for customers can require hundreds of systems and services to work together. Not only do you have to worry about your own internal systems, but now in the world of APIs and microservices you also have to worry about how these external systems are going to work with yours.
Testing dependencies on 3rd party services presents unique challenges. Many 3rd parties charge access fees for test interfaces and the availability and performance of the interfaces may not be the same as the production versions.
Learn how service virtualization can be used to:
•Virtualize 3rd party services so they are accessible all the time without fees
•Replicate production like dependencies for testing
•Reproduce production defects for faster remediation
•Eliminate scheduling conflicts and enable parallel development
•Generate virtualized data
Working in QA and testing has never been more challenging. Development is turning out new code faster than ever, and test backlogs just keep piling up. Errors that make it into production then need to be traced and fixed, adding to the backlog.
Discover how test automation, service virtualization, and test data management can help you make your testing more agile—and permanently eliminate the excuses.
You will learn how to avoid these common excuses with the following skills:
•The dog ate my data: Simplify test data management and increase test coverage
•That application was before my time: Automate tests for poorly documented systems
•Nobody told me that: Improve test case requirements with visualization
•I didn’t have time to test that: Accelerate testing with test automation and open source code
•It worked fine on my machine: Use service virtualization to create production-like test environments in minutes
Chef Compliance lets you express your compliance rules as code. You can easily run those rules as tests whenever you want. You get immediate feedback on whether your servers are configured as they should be.
Chef Compliance scans your servers to see if they are configured in accordance with your rules and generates a report that identifies the issues it found. You can then use Chef to remediate those problems.
In this webinar, Joe Gardiner will demonstrate how Chef Compliance works by scanning a default installation of RHEL 7.0 on the public cloud to see if it is CIS compliant. After the scan identifies the problem areas, Joe will use Chef to bring the server in line with the CIS benchmarks.
You’ll also learn about an offer from Chef to help you perform a scan of your infrastructure and get you started on the road to compliance.
Moving to the cloud can be daunting; often organizations struggle understanding where to begin and the steps required to realize a migration.

Cloud storage has transformed the storage industry, however interoperability challenges that were overlooked during the initial stages of growth are now emerging as front and center issues. Join this Webcast to learn the major challenges that businesses leveraging services from multiple cloud providers or moving from one cloud provider to another face.
The SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface standard (CDMI) addresses these challenges by offering data interoperability between clouds. SNIA and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have partnered to create a SNIA CDMI Conformance Test Program to help cloud storage providers achieve CDMI conformance.
As interoperability becomes critical, end user companies should include the CDMI standard in their RFPs and demand conformance to CDMI from vendors.
Join us on July 19th to learn:
•Critical challenges that the cloud storage industry is facing
•Issues in a multi-cloud provider environment
•Addressing cloud storage interoperability challenges
•How the CDMI standard works
•Benefits of CDMI conformance testing
•Benefits for end user companies

The movement away from electro-mechanical devices for primary storage to solid state technology continues. Flash technology has been immensely successful and continues to advance with greater density and less cost. It is also driving changes in the interfaces and protocols for storage from disk-based to memory-based. Additional solid state technology is entering the market and will create a hierarchy of different performance and cost storage. This presentation will discuss some of these changes and their potential impacts.
As organizations move into the "3rd platform", they’ll need to discover new ways to support solutions like Private Cloud and Real-Time Analytics. The traditional disk-based storage they're depending on is not keeping up. Flash is transforming datacenter infrastructure performance, capacity and cost to address these challenges.
Join Chris Tsilipounidakis from Tegile as he examines the ways of transforming to a Flash datacenter to support various, mixed application workloads in an ever-changing ecosystem.
