  • Test di Performance come parte integrante del ciclo di sviluppo software. Test di Performance come parte integrante del ciclo di sviluppo software. Domenico Maracci Mar 2 2017 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Con la Digital Transformation le performance applicative e la User Experience sono diventati fattori determinanti per il successo di un’iniziativa digitale. Allo stesso tempo l’adozione di metodologie Agile impone un approccio “as-a-code” nella gestione di tutte le fasi del ciclo di vita del software. È per questi motivi che risulta fondamentale indirizzare la verifica delle performance già dalle prime fasi dello sviluppo software, abilitando l’esecuzione dei Test di Performance già nei cicli di build di una nuova release.
  • Continuous Delivery = Agile + DevOps: Learn more with Guest Forrester Continuous Delivery = Agile + DevOps: Learn more with Guest Forrester Forrester VP and Principal Analyst, Diego Lo Giudice and Dan Rice, Agile Advisor, CA Technologies Mar 2 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The Global Agile Software Application Development Online Survey from Forrester Research, Inc. shows that a third of firms have been practicing agile for more than five years, and 54% have successfully scaled their Agile practices to more than half their teams.*

    People who practice agile methods often talk about "pulling quality forward." This and other agile tenets (delivering early and often, reducing batch size, inspecting and adapting, creating a collaborative culture and focusing on customer value) are designed to help organizations get valuable, high-quality features out the door, fast. But they can't happen just in engineering: agile succeeds as a mindset that's systemic throughout your organization.

    Join CA Technologies and guest speaker Diego Lo Giudice, Forrester VP and Principal Analyst in Application Development + Delivery to find out how YOU can help make your business an agile business by implementing agile both upstream (through your business portfolio) AND downstream (through testing and operations).

    If you're ready for a strategic, collaborative approach to delivering value to customers, then you won’t want to miss this webinar.

  • How to Leverage APIs & Microservices to Accelerate Legacy Modernization How to Leverage APIs & Microservices to Accelerate Legacy Modernization Matt Serna, Mike O'Meara and Dmitriy Kuznetsov Mar 7 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As agile upstarts continue to displace established incumbent companies, the imperative to adopt (and adapt to) modern technologies and platforms - cloud, big data, IoT, mobile - has never been greater.

    All too often, legacy systems, which form the backbone of many enterprises, can stand in the way of the implementation and adoption of these technologies. As the number of digital transformation initiatives and the speed with which they must be delivered intensifies, IT leaders are being overwhelmed by the sheer number of requests for data feeds from legacy systems. Moreover, existing legacy interfaces, developed in a world of daily, batch calls, are not fit for purpose for today's digital channels requiring real-time data causing additional pain.

    Join Matt Serna, Manager Industry Marketing, Mike O'Meara, VP of Infoview Systems, and Dmitriy Kuznetsov, VP of Integration and Cloud Services, Infoview Systems for an in depth look at a specific customer use-case.

    Listeners will learn:

  • Why Application Performance Management Needs Better Database Monitoring Why Application Performance Management Needs Better Database Monitoring Mike Kelly, SelectStar CTO & Milan Hanson, Forrester Senior Analyst Mar 7 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    There's a lot of emphasis going into tracking the customer's transaction performance through all of the factors that might slow it down. Today there is lots of emphasis on looking into the source code, looking at APIs, looking into the network, looking into the servers, VMs, and containers on-prem or in the cloud. But let's not forget an essential component that's not getting a lot of attention: databases. Customer obsession and performance management depend as much today as ever -- maybe more -- on databases. And they're not getting any simpler! Complex distributed databases like Hadoop, Cassandra, and NoSQL require monitoring and management that's very different and much more complex -- monitoring that integrates into the APM systems and analytics required to achieve customer obsession.

    In this webinar, join guest speaker, Forrester Senior Analyst Milan Hanson, who will discuss the importance of customer experience, customer obsession and the technological and cultural shift this creates. Following Milan, SelectStar General Manager Mike Kelly will highlight key trends driving database monitoring and management, including how it relates to application performance.

But this is only the beginning. Additional Executable UML standards are being built on this foundation, including recent ones for composite structure and state machines. Come learn about the growing suite of OMG Executable UML specifications, watch these standards in action and discover the promise they hold for the future.
  • Panel Discussion: Impact of Cloud and Digital on Future of the IT Organisation Panel Discussion: Impact of Cloud and Digital on Future of the IT Organisation Rob Pritchard (Moderator) Mar 8 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The organisational impact of “cloud” adoption (in all its guises), as well as other modern enterprise technologies, is a topic of relevance to IT and business leaders in all industry sectors.
    The much vaunted shift to "everything-as-a-service" will have major implications not only on the tasks and services that IT departments traditionally perform, but the skills required in the organisation and the nature of the relationship that “IT” has with the “business”. Shadow IT is now a fact of life in most organisations. Business customers expect IT to take more of a leadership role in defining and enabling business strategy.
    Or will it? Is it? Do they?
