Enterprise Applications

  • Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Nathan Devoll, SV Consultant, CA Technologies Recorded: Jul 26 2016 54 mins
    Traditional performance testing typically requires that all components of the application are “completed,” integrated and deployed into an appropriate environment. This results in testing not being done until late in the delivery cycle or sometimes skipped entirely. Which can then lead to a less then optimal user experience, expensive rework and potential loss of business.

    Many organizations are adopting service virtualization to overcome the key challenges associated with performance testing. During this session see why and specifically how service virtualization:
    •Enables you to do testing early in the dev cycle by simulating unavailable production systems and missing components
    •Helps you control the inputs (like response times and 3rd party system responses) so you can do more negative and exploratory testing
    •Provisions performance test environments “in a box” for on-demand testing
    •Works with CA APM so that you can monitor an app during a load and performance test and see how the app reacts

  • Using Predictive Analytics to optimize Application operations: Can you dig it? Using Predictive Analytics to optimize Application operations: Can you dig it? Lesley-Anne Wilson, Group Product Rollout & Support Engineer, Digicel Group Recorded: Jul 22 2016 23 mins
    Many studies have been done on the benefits of Predictive Analytics on customer engagement in order to change customer behaviour. However, the side less romanticized is the benefit to IT operations as it is sometimes difficult to turn the focus from direct revenue impacting gain to the more indirect revenue gains that can come from optimization and pro-active issue resolution.

    I will be speaking, from an application operations engineers perspective, on the benefits to the business of using Predictive Analytics to optimize applications.

  • On the way to Smart Factory On the way to Smart Factory Jay Monahan, Director of Smart Factory Solutions, Dell Services Recorded: Jul 22 2016 42 mins
    Presented by Jay Monahan, Director of Smart Factory Solutions, Dell Services. In 2012, The Economist claimed we were entering the third industrial revolution based on the digitization of manufacturing, also referred to as the “smart factory.” The development and adoption of the Internet of Things is a critical element of smart manufacturing as reduced sensor device cost, and increased connectivity and in-memory processing give manufacturers the ability to gather and use data to increase product quality and transform operations. IT organizations are increasingly involved with the management, security and governance of this data as equipment and products are connected to the internet. This session will provide a practical framework for evaluating ways to improve sensor enablement, transaction processes and analytics based on real-world customer examples.

  • Reduce your TCO with a full-featured software load balancer Reduce your TCO with a full-featured software load balancer Ashish Shah, Director of Product, Avi Networks Recorded: Jul 21 2016 44 mins
    Hardware or software applicance-based load balancers do not scale horizontally. They often cause configuration delays, overspending, and overprovisioning. Avi Networks leverages the power of central management and insights derived from distributed load balancing resources to provide predictive autoscaling of load balancers as well as application components. Enterprises can eliminate upfront capital costs and adopt an elastic subscription-based model for load balancing. The Avi Vantage platform alleviates operational complexities inherent in buying hardware and managing multiple appliances.

    In this webinar learn new best practices for autoscaling load balancers and applications. Learn the flexibility and cost savings achieved through:

    • Software-defined L4-L7 services and central management
    • Use of commodity x86 servers for load balancing
    • Elastic scaling based on real-time traffic that eliminates overprovisioning
    • Avoiding CapEx and significantly reduced OpEx

  • What Came First - the Model or the Test? What Came First - the Model or the Test? Huw Price, CA Technologies and Paul Gerrard, Gerrard Consulting Recorded: Jul 21 2016 63 mins
    All testing relies on modelling, but “test models are the only way forward for testers and businesses”, according to Paul Gerrard, Principal at Gerrard Consulting. This session reviews the use of modelling in testing and illustrate, using real life examples, how chaos and carnage is being replaced with structured order.
    Paul sets out his vision for a “New Model of Testing” which puts models at the heart of high quality, efficient testing. This will be accompanied by a practical demonstration of how model-based approaches can be applied within a state-of-the-art DevOps framework including:
    •How models can be used to capture accurately ever changing business requirements
    •The “Shift left” effect of formal modelling for testing, where test cases, scripts, data and expected results can all be generated from the initial design
    •How the testing assets derived from a model can be updated automatically, so that testing keeps up with the rate at which user needs change
  • Building a Successful Omnichannel Strategy for Physical Stores Building a Successful Omnichannel Strategy for Physical Stores Geoff Nairn, Enterprise Solutions Specialist at Openbravo Recorded: Jul 21 2016 36 mins
    Consumers are rushing to embrace the benefits of omnichannel retailing by choosing retail brands and businesses that have adapted the shopping experience to fit their connected "always on" lives. The physical store will continue to play a central if changed role in this new scenario and so bricks-and-mortar retailers need to leverage the strengths of their existing physical store network and their brand to offer customers a transformational shopping experience across all channels.

    What Will You Learn?
    In this webinar we highlight how retailers are using omnichannel to create differentiated shopping experiences designed to boost sales and margins, build loyalty and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. We explain how information technology can help retailers successfully implement key omnichannel concepts in a way that builds on the advantages of an existing physical store network and evolves at a pace the retailer can decide.
