Balancing Agility and Control: The True Path to Continuous Delivery

Hans Jörgen Dekker, QUINT; Dave West, Tasktop; Toby Marsden, HP Software; Fil Zanasi, HP Software
Software is eating the world. It is almost impossible to deliver new business capabilities without significant software innovation. Software agility directly affects business capability. Software delivery is a key business process for most organizations. But for many companies, software delivery is poorly understood and is not treated as an integrated, visible business process. Governance and control directly compete with agile methods and improved release models. To navigate to the nirvana of business agility requires a different way of approaching the whole value chain of software delivery.

This debate will discuss the following:
•What is the nirvana of software delivery?
•What are the challenges to getting there?
•What is the reality of agile development?
•How does continuous delivery fit with agile?
•What is the future of Application Lifecycle Management?
•And, how do you get there from your current position?

Join moderator Hans Jörgen Dekker, Managing Consultant at QUINT and panelists:
•Dave West: former Research Director at Forrester Research and now Chief Product Officer at Tasktop;
•Toby Marsden: Director of Application Solutions and Strategy at HP Software;
•Fil Zanasi: Financial Services Market Specialist at HP Software.

  • The ROI numbers don’t lie. Service virtualization technology is critical to the success of a vibrant application economy. That’s the conclusion from voke, Inc. on their research of 500 companies across the globe. Organizations using service virtualization experience reduced defects and software lifecycles, and increased customer satisfaction.

    Specific ROI data from companies surveyed include:
    •46% reported a 41% or greater reduction in TOTAL defects
    •More than one-third reduced test cycle times by 50% or more
    •36% reported a 41% or greater reduction in production defects
    •More than 25% at least doubled test execution rates

    Hear service virtualization should be a cornerstone of testing automation to remove the barrier to releasing software faster and with greater quality.

    voke, Inc., will review the research showing how service virtualization is an essential technology with a strong and proven ROI used to deliver software that drives optimal business outcomes and removes constraints throughout the software delivery lifecycle.
  • 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.

    Join our lively panel discussion with DevOps industry experts Paul Muller and Damon Edwards as they discuss:

    Common problems in traditional DevOps teams
    How these teams have changed to truly transform and become innovators
    How you can apply these ideas to your business to boost your bottom line
  • Many organizations have not been able to demonstrate that they have effective compliance management.

  • Automating Services in a Hybrid World Mar 19 2015 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    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.

  • Performance Testing is Dead; Long Live Performance Engineering Mar 17 2015 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    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.

    Join us for a research based webinar led by Forrester, which uncovers and addresses the concerns of how to stay in step with the velocity of today’s application delivery.

    Today's applications are largely compositions representing business processes put in place to better serve the business. But as businesses rapidly change, the need to adopt more agile processes is growing, which in turn means that the supporting applications must also be flexible.

    For example did you know that:

    •over 58% of IT leaders see a clear need for more integration testing in 12-18 months for systems of engagement because of growing architecture complexity?
    •long testing cycles are seen as a huge impediment to shorter and more frequent releases?
