  • Cyber attacks are daily news, and yet security and compliance are often not considered as a fundamental requirement when adopting hosted & cloud strategies – something that would be unheard of in a physical infrastructure environment.

    In this webinar, a security expert from Alert Logic will discuss the latest trends in cybercrime, and the motivation and methods currently used by hackers, and their impact on cloud security, including:

    •An expert profile of today’s evolved hackers and threat landscape
    •What attackers are really after, why, and how they’re getting what they want
    •How hackers monetise stolen data
    •Common methods and tools hackers use to exploit vulnerabilities
    •How to integrate security & threat intelligence capabilities into your cloud and on-premise environments

    The webinar will also cover how fully managed security services can secure the application and infrastructure stack across your infrastructure – whether dedicated, hybrid or the cloud. Managed security services such as intrusion detection, vulnerability assessment and log management coupled with deep security content, and 24x7 continuous monitoring helps Rackspace customers to reduce risk, increase application availability, and reduce the cost of running in-house teams and technologies to manage their security and compliance outcomes.
  • Traditional testing methods do not fit well for the DevOps world. They simply are not suited for the velocity or volume of changes required to achieve Continuous Delivery. With 70% of test cases written manually and almost 50% of SDLC costs taken up by testing, it is clear that more of the testing effort needs to be automated.

    Like test case design, creating test data from scratch is labor intensive, costly and error prone. It rarely leads to the creation of realistic data fitted for the specific business purpose. As a result, testing is too slow and lets too many defects slip through, so that only a fraction of desired functionality is delivered, and the customer experience goes downhill in the end.

    Join the discussion to explore:
    - The various testing related constraints to Continuous Delivery
    - How effective Test Case Design and Test Data Management methods and tools can help facilitate Agile Development and Continuous Delivery
    - Testing best practices today and what the future of testing looks like

  • In the application economy, you have to deliver software as if your business depends on it … because it does! It’s a bold statement, but true. Think of nearly every interaction a person might have today—be it for work, commerce or play. Most have a digital dimension, which relies on digital technology and platforms.

    In order to survive and grow, every company needs to become a technology company and every business needs to become a digital business. Successful transformation requires Continuous Delivery, the new business imperative that enables you to rapidly develop and deliver applications that drive superior user experiences and engage your customers and staff.

    But the traditional “software factory” or process for transforming an idea into a customer experience is throttled by a number of bottlenecks in the delivery pipeline. That means delivering innovative, high-quality applications, faster and more frequently can be a chaotic and complex process, particularly if your application delivery systems and processes were designed to only push out one or two releases a year.

    Moderator Alan Shimel, DevOps.com; and experts Chris Rowett, CA Technologies and Julie Craig, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and Anbu Muppidathi, Cognizant discuss ways to overcome today’s application economy challenges with solutions designed to transform your software delivery lifecycle into a continuous delivery pipeline of digital innovation.
