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.

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.
I will summarize the stages of analytics maturity that lead an organization from traditional reporting (descriptive analytics: hindsight), through predictive analytics (foresight), and into prescriptive analytics (insight). The benefits of big data (especially high-variety data) will be demonstrated with simple examples that can be applied to significant use cases.
The goal of data science in this case is to discover predictive power and prescriptive power from your data collections, in order to achieve optimal decisions and outcomes.

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

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
