  • UC Optimization for Pros
    UC Optimization for Pros Tim Poindexter, VP Marketing | Dave Bottomley, Senior Solutions Engineer Live 60 mins
    In today’s business world, communication matters more than ever. People want to communicate in new ways everyday: more channels, more devices, more flexibility. But these demands rely on a new generation of technology, operating in real-time. What happens if the technology isn’t reliable? Digital services to customers are unreachable. Phones stop working. Video conferences crash.

    A small outage can have a big impact. Businesses need to react quickly and get to the root cause to find a solution. They need to ensure their UC is reliable, and optimized.

    Unified communications are the arteries and veins of your organization and its connection to the outside world. Internally, you can’t function properly when there are problems. Externally, you’re paralyzed when there’s an outage. Unified communications keep the heart of the organization pumping.

    Without effective communications and collaboration capabilities, employees are at a competitive disadvantage with slower product development and decision making overall. Reliable communications and collaboration infrastructure that helps employees work efficiently enables your organization to breathe.

    Today's most successful companies are data-driven, making informed decisions instead of guesses. Traditionally data-driven insights have been delivered in the form of standalone business intelligence applications, but in the past few years we’ve seen a big shift towards delivering contextual analytics embedded directly into other software applications and business workflows. For software vendors this means meeting high end-user expectations by infusing compelling data visualizations and analytics into every application you create and sell. Modern data visualization and analytics applications, therefore, need to be designed from the ground-up to be quick and easy to embed for a web and mobile-first world. They also must capable of handling today's rapidly evolving modern data platforms so that your analytics technology does not lock you into using yesterday's
    data stores.

  • Shift Happens! The power of Performance Testing
    Shift Happens! The power of Performance Testing Jeff Bradley, Pre-Sales Advisor, CA Technologies Feb 28 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Performance testing is more relevant than ever. It’s even more prominent in the software development life cycle than in the past. What’s changed is that development and testing teams now can test component level performance earlier than ever with tools such as Service Virtualization.

    It’s now easier to identify and fix performance-related issues as they are being worked much earlier than before, when performance testing was done during a formal performance testing cycle in the stage environment after multiple code builds have hidden those issues deeper across several application layers.

    This session will cover the basics of how to shift performance testing left so that development and testing teams can test component level performance using CA Service Virtualization and CA BlazeMeter.
