As automation lightens the load on IT operations personnel, and the DevOps cultural shift brings dev and ops together, some ops people are worried about their jobs.
Furthermore, as DevOps takes hold, other roles in the organization are set to transform. DevOps potentially reworks project management methodologies, so what about the project managers? DevOps flattens organizations, so should middle managers be worried?
In this webinar, industry analyst and president of Intellyx Jason Bloomberg will set the stage with some broad observations about the organizational impact DevOps is having across enterprises.
Next, Pauly Comtois, VP of DevOps at Hearst Business Media will join Jason for a thought-provoking, in-depth discussion of how DevOps impacts individual's roles within the organization, with some first-person stories of Hearst Business Media’s DevOps transformation.
You will learn:
- Potential starting points to mapping your own DevOps transformation
- What non-technical groups and roles need to be part of any DevOps initiative – and methods for effective inclusion
- New organizational approaches to structure and collaboration that empower instead of threaten
- How to better manage business changes with DevOps strategies
The cloud is here to stay. However, that also means more and more companies are realizing that they’ve built two separate IT teams and are struggling to deliver quality services without a unified view. A true hybrid monitoring solution is the answer to this common problem.
Join Jay Lyman, Analyst at 451 Research, and Kent Erickson, Alliance Strategist at Zenoss, as they discuss what is shaping hybrid IT, where it's going, and what to do about it.
The functionality required by systems continues to increase and the digital semiconductor vendors are doing a pretty good job keeping the power requirements stable. In some cases, they’re even dropping the voltage levels to what considered at one time to be noise. From a power-management perspective, how do system designers deal with this need to squeeze every watt from the shrinking battery cells? That’s what will be covered on Day 2 in the three-part series of Embedded University: Analog/Power. Sponsored by Texas Instruments
Together, Windows 10 and Intel deliver the productivity, security and manageability you need to advance your business.
Intel and Microsoft have been collaborating for more than 30 years, creating technology that has changed the way we do business.
With Windows 10, we’ve taken this partnership to a whole new level, with new hardware lighting up key Windows features that help you stay ahead of security threats, while making it easy for you to manage devices across your business.
The new devices on Windows 10 and the new Intel 6th generation processor (Skylake) deliver:
•Better Productivity: Do more and be more productive with improved multi-tasking, less waiting, familiar interface and app compatibility
•Better Security: Helps protect identity, data and devices against modern security threats
•Better Manageability: Stay current with less effort, manage devices more effectively, remotely provision and deploy applications
Watch this webcast to:
•Discover Windows 10 productivity, security and manageability features that new hardware lights up
•Learn more about the Intel 6th generation processor (Skylake) and how it helps give time and money back to your company
•Get additional resources to evaluate when it might be time for new devices and what devices are right for you
Regulators, converters, boosters, mixed-signal, logic, drivers, and so on. The list seems to go on endlessly. Are you afraid to admit that you need a 101 course for analog/power? We can help. Day 1 of the three-day class, Embedded University: Analog/Power, will give you what you need to start your design, put you on the right track, and arm you with the tools necessary to design the analog and/or power subsystem within your design.

HP ALM offers a great tool for managing and executing tests, and can form the cornerstone of a solid DevOps framework. However, DevOps involves far more than just tooling.
This webinar will demonstrate how to import BPM models to CA Agile Requirements Designer and further convert them into an active flowchart. Optimized tests can thereby be derived directly from the BPMs, bringing the business and IT into close alignment and eliminating manual effort. If the BPM changes, difference and dependency analysis and can be used to identify its impact on the system, automatically updating test assets.
Featuring Philip Howard of Bloor Research, this webinar will show you how the right tooling, processes and culture can fully automate testing, and how testing can be embedded within a success DevOps pipeline, driven by the design phase.
By attending this demo, you will understand:
- Why traditional testing techniques might not be suited to DevOps, with manual test design and maintenance creating delays and allowing an unacceptable number of defects
- How a requirements driven approach can eliminate many of the testing bottlenecks within a DevOps framework, while avoiding the “information hops” which degrade quality
- How to automate test case design, data provisioning and maintenance, building a re-usable library of test components to accommodate rigorous testing within a DevOps framework
Application Defender can provide consistent and centralized logging of application use and abuse to SOCs or others tasked with Security Monitoring. Learn about the Application Logging categories and use cases that will enable you to gain visibility into application activity across the whole enterprise without changing source or parsing logs.

In the digital era, IT has an extraordinary opportunity to become a data-driven business partners helping the business achieve its goals of revenue generation, cost reduction, and risk mitigation. However, IT reporting and analytics have historically focused on descriptive and diagnostic work – describing what happened and why. The speed and agility of the digital revolution demands the ability to not only describe what happened in the past but to predict what might happen in the future and to make recommendations about what should be done.
IT operations analytics offers IT organizations a path to evolve the use of machine, operational and business data for more effective, forward-looking prioritization and decision-making. And in a recent BMC sponsored survey, 79% of IT pros said they would be more effective at their job if they had access to non-IT sources of data to help them make decisions in business context.
Join Donnie Berkholz, 451 Research, and Erin Avery, BMC Software, for a high energy, fast paced discussion on adaptive, real-time analytics that any IT operations organization can adopt to become highly prescriptive and predictive.
Applications are becoming increasingly complex making it difficult to understand customer experience and quickly triage application performance issues. With large scale, applications spanning multiple platforms and geos it can be a challenge to view the large amounts of data produced by monitoring tools, let alone administer.
