    - Easy to write, easy to maintain, metadata aware mappings
  • Every company needs to be a technology company to survive in the application economy. Business and customer expectations are immediate and changing on a daily basis. This continuous and disruptive flow of new demand requires an effective approach for managing and consuming centralized resource management insights. Organizations have improved their investment review and approval process but it is more important to determine if an organization “can” take on the desired effort.

    This Webcast will focus on how resource management processes play a key role in potentially providing the insights necessary to answer the “can we” question that must be asked before allowing any new project or program for inclusion in the enterprise portfolio.

    •Do we have the resource capacity?
    •Do we have the resource capability?
    •Can we supplement our existing resources with 3rd-party resources?
    •What are the resource cost comparisons and ramifications?
  • Hospitals and other healthcare providers face the daunting challenge of managing information. As patient records, diagnostic information, and even the operating theater increasingly rely on networked electronics, the amount of data that must be created, transmitted, managed, and stored has grown dramatically. The number of devices connected and powered via the healthcare facility’s network infrastructure is also growing. Concerns with how heat rise can degrade network performance from the next generation of Power over Ethernet (PoE) is also top of mind for network administrators in healthcare. In addition, the patient experience is more important than ever, and things like a fast WiFi connection can translate to significantly improve customer experience. In this Berk-Tek webcast, you will learn how you can protect the future health of your network infrastructure

    Topics to be discussed include:
    - The IP Market Drivers
    - New Technology on the Way (PoE, Wireless, 2.5G and 5G)
    - Brief Review of the Healthcare’s TIA-1179 Cabling Standard
    - Planning for Success
    - Conclusions and Recommendations

  • 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.
  • Low-code platforms have become a critical factor in helping AD&D organizations rapidly deliver applications to win, serve and retain customers.

    With these platforms, enterprises are routinely delivering apps much faster than conventional methods. But can these platforms truly scale across the full modern app lifecycle? What are the top use cases for deploying a low-code platform?

    Join John Rymer of Forrester Research for an engaging discussion about the innovative ways organizations are utilizing low-code platforms across the app lifecycle. Hear from IT executives with Autoliv, Estafeta and NES Financial as they talk candidly about how low-code platforms have driven growth and competitive advantage in their organizations.
  • Digital transformation requires organizations today to be both bold and agile to keep up with the pace of the market shift. Bpm’online invited Rebecca Wettemann, a world-famous CRM analyst & VP of Nucleus Research, to share her expert perspective on values of the process-focused approach to CRM during the one-hour webinar.

    Recent studies predict that by 2017 about 70% of successful digital business models will rely on dynamic processes designed to evolve with customer needs.

    CRM technology underpins nearly every customer-facing process today. At the same time, companies that are seeking the transformation, face certain barriers to change:
    •Deficiency in pre-built customer-facing processes and difficulty in modifying them.
    •Customization of business processes takes too long.
    •Specific technical expertise is required to modify processes and better align them with strategic imperatives.

    Does your CRM allow for changing customer-facing processes with minimum efforts in order to support your business growth?
    How can you make the business case for a more dynamic CRM strategy?

    Attend the 1-hour webinar to find out how to:
    • Benefit from fast and easy process adjustment – no complex and time-consuming configuration by IT specialists.
    • Timely adapt customer-facing processes in response to the rapidly changing business environment.
    • Consistently test, modify, and improve business processes.
    • Build the business case for transforming your CRM processes.
  • 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 today’s application economy, companies like TIAA CREF are focused on getting applications to market faster, without sacrificing quality—continuing to provide great customer experiences. This requires retooling how you deliver applications, including focusing on smaller batches of work, automating test and deployment, and reducing ‘release drama’ along the way. This session highlights how TIAA CREF was able to automate the delivery pipeline, testing and infrastructure configuration to significantly improve their application delivery process, application quality and team collaboration.
  • 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
  • Many people working in software development spend their careers without seeing what good looks like. Our history is littered with inefficient processes creating poor quality output, too late to capitalise on the expected business value. How have we got to this state? How do we get past it? What does good really look like?
    Continuous Delivery changes the economics of software development, find out how and why.
  • With cloud computing now becoming a mainstream technology for most companies, new opportunities have emerged for cloud and hosting providers that extend beyond their traditional infrastructure-focused businesses. The most interesting changes in cloud infrastructure, applications and services are yet to come.

    A key characteristic of Cloud 2.0 is that 70% of the opportunity is beyond infrastructure hosting, with application, managed and security services demand growing from enterprises. To capture this providers must continue to evolve their offerings to meet the increasingly complex demands of customers who are now in the driver's seat. These customers need not only infrastructure, but also wrap-around services and support that they have come to expect from their corporate IT departments.

    During this data-driven discussion you will learn:

    - What Cloud 2.0 means for your business
    - Cloud adoption trends
    - How to innovate without risk
    - Who are the primary decision makers
    - How customers choose a service provider and what requirements are important to them
    - Where customers allocate their budgets
  • 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.
