  • From students to executives, finding solutions to improve efficiency, productivity, and communication has become vital. These end users are trying to excel in their work, and while they don’t mean to cause harm, in most organizations this desire leads to the use of applications, services, and data storage and sharing beyond IT's boundaries. This practice, known as “shadow IT,” is having an obvious impact on technical support teams. Attend this webinar to learn more about shadow IT and how you can strike a balance between reaping the benefits and avoiding the risk.
  • Microservices are all the rage. An important characteristic of microservices is “shared nothing” … the idea of including necessary libraries or other elements in each microservice. By not sharing libraries outside of the microservice, organizations can support unlimited horizontal scalability, avoid overburdening the network, and avoid unnecessary dependencies that can lead to failures.

    “Shared nothing,” however, doesn’t mean that microservices don’t interact with each other or with other code in your application environment. In fact, developers may “share” where different applications may interact with an identical instances of the same microservice code.

    As a result, building shared services introduces new types of dependencies, especially when DevOps teams are implementing large distributed applications. Service Virtualization is necessary to make virtual services available to developers who are creating these microservices or any other code. Service Virtualization is important to ensure microservices will work properly as they scale up during continuous integration.

    In this webinar, architecture expert Jason Bloomberg will drill down into the microservices architecture principle of “shared nothing.” He will explain the challenges of implementing shared nothing microservices, and how Service Virtualization can address those and other constraint challenges. You’ll also hear from Scott Edwards, Director of Product Marketing at CA Technologies, on using Service Virtualization to remove bottlenecks throughout the SDLC to drive innovations to market, faster.

    As a second part of our discussion, we dig deeper into the concept that mixing Agile and traditional application development methodologies works well. This time we focus on outcomes, or what we know works. Most importantly, we’ll also talk about what doesn’t work and what should be avoided.

    Agile has more value in some aspects of the application development lifecycle than others. While organizations are changing around the notion of Agile, it’s healthy to take a close look at what’s practical as to the successful design, development, and deployment of new or existing applications.

    It’s time to start asking the tougher questions.

    We’ve got a panel of experts to address the issues around Agile and mixing more traditional approaches with new, from the perspective of the project managers.

    We’ll deal with the tough decisions that enterprise development project leaders and ISVs have to deal with today as they move to more “modern” approaches. What’s more, look at how the cloud, big data, and the Internet of Things are driving even more innovative thinking around development methods. If you’re moving to Agile, this is a must attend.

    After this webinar, you'll:

    · Discover what works when mixing traditional app dev techniques
    · Automate Agile principles while deploying new or existing apps
    · Learn how cloud and big data can complicate the Agile scenario
    · Avoid the pitfalls of bad development strategies
  • IT Service Management (ITSM) has evolved dramatically and what was considered mature and effective ITSM just a short time ago is barely sufficient today. So what’s next for ITSM and are you prepared for the future?
