  • Continuous Delivery boils down to two essential elements: quality and speed. It depends upon the ability to take a business requirement from the initial idea to deployment at pace, without compromising quality.

    However, speed and quality are often viewed as opposing elements, where you can have one, but not the other. Testing is often blamed, as it is viewed as something which is necessary to guarantee quality, but which slows projects down. Thorough testing is therefore often abandoned as the deadline looms, leading to defects and, eventually, a poor user experience.

    To keep up with the pace of Continuous Delivery in “the New World”, testing needs to be made less manual, more systematic, and more reactive to constant change. In this talk, Huw Price will explore how model-based testing can be used to achieve this, “shifting left” the effort of testing into the design phase, and fully automating testing thereafter.

    Having set out the common challenges faced when testing, a full demonstration will be provided of how test cases, data and virtual assets needed to fully test a system can be derived automatically from the requirements themselves, and how these can be automatically updated when the requirements change. Flowchart modelling will be suggested, as a way to bridge the gap between IT and business initiatives, so that testing iteratively and necessarily validates that the changing requirements set out by the business are implemented.
  • Today, our customers are interacting with our business and services through mobile, web and increasingly via wearables. It is critical to understand and improve the user experience we are providing across all of these app channels. Are our customers getting good value from our apps? How are they interacting with us? How can we deliver more value via the channels and devices most important to our users? To stay competitive, you need to deliver great experiences to your users, quickly, securely and efficiently across all channels. Discover how a customer-centric view of your customer experience empowers you to understand your users, quickly identify issues and deliver more business value via apps through the omnichannel.
  • The adoption of microservices add a new layer of complexity to an already complex application environment. When application issues arise, it becomes difficult to pinpoint the source and, too often, you find yourself in lengthy war rooms or assigning experts to triage every issue. As a result, brand loyalty, customer satisfaction and innovation are negatively impacted. The old approach to monitoring application performance just isn’t working. A new approach is needed. In this session we will discuss four areas that you should consider which will change the way you think about monitoring microservices.
  • Do you still dread walking into the office each morning, knowing that you’re walking into multiple alerts of application performance issues? Or even worse, getting those notifications after hours?

    Get ahead of application crashes and back-end performance issues with CA Mobile App Analytics (MAA). Join this webcast to see a high-level overview of the CA MAA solution and how you can:

    • Gain end-to-end visibility from the app to the database
    • Analyse and identify root cause
    • Evaluate and address end-user experience issues before the end-user notices them
    • Join us to see just how easy it is to enable better application performance, and cut back on those dreaded alerts
  • See how CA manages and monitors our own CA SAP environment

    SAP applications and the business processes they enable often represent the very core of your business. Customers, partners, and employees expect availability, responsiveness and secure access, while the CEO expects that budget objectives will be met and efficiencies exploited to improve the bottom line. CA Technologies provides a robust portfolio of SAP certified IT management solutions which help reduce the cost and risk associated with delivering your SAP enabled business processes, while helping to enable the service levels needed for more optimal business operations.

    In this session you’ll learn:
    • The business drivers, technical challenges and importance of SAP in the daily works of CA
    • How CA manages its own SAP implementation with CA APM solutions
  • We know that DevOps principles and patterns have been pioneered by the “unicorns,” the likes of Google, Amazon, Facebook, Netflix, Twitter and so forth, doing tens, hundreds or even thousands of deployments per day, while preserving world-class availability, reliability and security. However, unique challenges exist when DevOps transformations are undertaken in large, complex organizations.

    The unique challenges include legacy applications, lack of automated testing, tightly coupled architectures, operating in regulated industries, powerful change management approval boards, security and compliance requirements, low trust bureaucratic cultures, and so on.

    However, large, complex organizations are successfully transforming using DevOps, such as GE, Macy’s, Ticketmaster/LiveNation, Barclay’s, Nordstorm, Target, Raytheon.

    In this webinar, Damon Edwards, Gary Gruver, John Willis, and Gene Kim will share their experiences and lessons learned about the unique challenges and solutions of implementing DevOps in large, complex organizations. They will also include lessons learned from the DevOps Enterprise Summit 2014 and goals for the conference this year.

    Panelists Include:
    -- Gene Kim, CTO, Tripwire;
    -- Damon Edwards, Managing Partner, DTO Solutions, Inc;
    -- Gary Gruver, author and experience technologist in Continuous Delivery and DevOps;
    -- John Willis, author and evangelist at Docker, Inc.
  • Speed. Quality. Innovation. That is what you are tasked with day in and day out... delivering superior user experiences that excite and engage your customers. But every benefit of beating your competition to market disappears if the app fails to perform in production. With development now happening in sprints, testing can no longer be sequential. Quality must be a focal point at every stage in the SDLC.

    In this session, learn how to “shift quality left” to make QA more than just a single step in the SDLC. By automating the creation of test and virtual services, and enabling access to realistic test data and scenarios early in the SDLC is key, you can drive a pervasive, continuous quality process integrated earlier throughout the development process.
  • In the Age of the Customer, applications are the face of your business and it is more important than ever to address performance and availability issues early in the software development lifecycle - before they get a chance to impact end users. Using Application Performance Management (APM) in pre-production is a best practice for creating and delivering applications that perform well and provide a great user experience.

    In this session, Forrester Research guest speaker Milan Hanson discusses trends and directions for usage of APM in pre-production. And he relays results from the recent Forrester Consulting TEI Study for CA Application Performance Management (CA APM) illustrating the value in both pre-production and production.

    To gain a better understanding of the best practices you should consider from the following topics, Milan will dive into:
    • The importance of addressing performance issues in pre-production
    • Trends and directions for the usage of APM in pre-production
    • The value of CA APM according to the Forrester Consulting TEI Study
  • DevOps methods enable teams to ship software more quickly and frequently but that advantage is negated unless the reliability and sustainability practices of operations teams are included throughout planning and execution. Too many organizations that rapidly ‘sheep dip’ development teams in Agile practices that focus at the team level ignore the implications that arise at production scale. Join this exclusive webinar with Dan North of DNA who will discuss how enterprise IT teams can enable collaboration without coercion. Attendees will learn how optimizations can be leveraged across both dev and ops teams so that the constraints that arise in stovepiped approaches are avoided.
  • CA APM 10 delivers new patent-pending innovations, based on the E.P.I.C. APM strategy that take Easy, Proactive, Intelligent, and Collaborative to new levels. By upgrading you can take advantage of these capabilities to help make triaging application performance easier and faster. In this webcast we’ll cover why the new capabilities are worth upgrading for and give some guidance on how to do the upgrade.

    You will learn:
    o The benefits of upgrading to APM 10
    o Best practices and tips & tricks for a smooth upgrade
    o Services available to help you
