  • This webinar will discuss strategies to help you save money in the AWS Cloud. From turning systems off at night, to implementing bidding strategies on the spot market, there are many ways in which you can manage and reduce your costs with AWS.
  • 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

  • Today’s banking customers are a demanding bunch. They expect mobility, transparency, instant access, and competitive products from their providers. In response, financial institutions are hard at work optimizing online and mobile banking. However, all too often, the solutions and apps they create fall short of the mark.

  • It’s well-known that storage I/O latency is the most common culprit hindering performance and efficiency in virtual computing. And it’s also well-known that using solid-state storage devices (SSDs) instead of hard-disk drives HDDs can significantly reduce this latency. The challenge is to deploy solid-state storage without an expensive forklift upgrade to existing storage systems. Join SanDisk to learn how new technologies enable solid-state storage to be deployed in the server, as a complement to existing storage, delivering flash memory performance at a far lower cost than a storage upgrade.
  • There’s no escaping change. And organizations that cling to the “tried and true”—whether it be existing business models and processes or perceptions of market conditions and customer preferences—are doomed to continually play catch-up in the marketplace.
