  • Simplify Application Modernization with Portfolio Management Recorded: May 17 2016 52 mins
    Dave Guevara, Global Enterprise Strategy & Architecture Portfolio Solutions Leader, Ciber
    Today, business is fast-paced with more moving parts than ever before. Companies that adapt their systems quickly in responding to business needs have a distinct competitive advantage. But organizations that are saddled with legacy systems not only struggle to keep up, but they’re also likely to find themselves on the fringe of relevance. Learn how to extend CA PPM to solve these complex modernization challenges.

    Which of these modernization challenges are you dealing with now?

    •Modernization initiatives exist for our major systems, but we need “the plan” for what else must change too.

    •Our systems are highly customized so we are “stuck”! How do we get unstuck without disrupting the business and get to our target state?

    •There are a few hundred applications, many are too expensive to maintain and take too long to change, but how?

    •Groups of large applications (e.g. mainframe, ERP, custom suites) need to be modernized to meet current business needs, but big bang will take too long, cost too much and “temporary” business solutions will just keep adding to today’s complexity and cost.

    •Our best talent, who should be innovating, are stuck maintaining what we have and fixing it as best they can to meet business needs.

    Join us for a BrightTalk webinar on Tuesday, May 17th at 10am PT where CA’s alliance partner Ciber will discuss how organizations are using portfolio management methods to solve these difficult and complex application modernization and rationalization challenges.

  • Take Agile to the Next Level with Forrester and CA - 1 PDU Recorded: May 9 2016 55 mins
    Diego Lo Giudice, Vice President Principal Analyst Serving Application Development & Delivery Professionals, Forrester
    The Q2 2015 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.*

    Yet practicing agile, by itself, isn’t guaranteed to deliver business value. Many companies with experienced agile teams still aren’t seeing the results they’d hoped for. Are your agile practices improving or flatlining? What good are productivity and velocity if they’re not enhancing your bottom line?

    As the speed of business accelerates and more competitors adopt agile, grassroots approaches just won’t cut it anymore. That’s why you should join our webinar on April 14 , at 10:00 AM (UK time/11am (CET) with CA Technologies Transformation Consultant or CA Agile Central, Andy Sales, and guest presenter Diego Lo Giudice, Forrester Analyst in Application Development + Delivery. You’ll learn how to apply the best practices found by both Forrester’s survey and CA Agile Transformation Consulting to give you a competitive edge and deliver business results.

    •Find out why it’s essential to connect delivery to your portfolio (upstream) and your operations (downstream) with cross-functional teams

    •Learn how to focus on cultural change to drive sustainable behavioral change

    •Get your company practicing continuous improvement with measurements that drive results

    This event qualifies for 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU credit).
  • Total Application Life Cycle Management Recorded: Apr 20 2016 50 mins
    Rick Morris, President, R2 Consulting
    In the application economy, every team needs different information in order to be effective:

    •Executives need high level portfolios / programs to be able to prioritize work to keep up with the competitive demand
    •Project Managers need project schedules, effort estimates, time tracking , and issues & risks to accurately manage project health and update status
    •Resource Managers need to balance effort estimates from support and project work to effectively see expectations of their resources
    •Developers need to break down project work, support, enhancement, and bugs to smaller segments in order to run in an agile, waterfall, or hybrid model.

    However, often there is no one software tool that all segments can agree on. Total Application Life Cycle Management is a solution from R2 consulting designed to allow organizations to leverage the investments that they have made in existing toolsets and allows users to stay in the systems most suitable for their responsibilities, yet provide leadership with integrated visibility into all activities related to the organization's portfolio of applications, including the ability to see:

    •ALL costs and information related to the entire application life cycle
    •ALL Effort expended for maintenance and support including cap/op-ex costs of the application and supporting infrastructure
    •ALL bug fixes and enhancements plus supporting information
    •Demand and resource management aligned with projects and project information
    •All compliance data include application version, contract details, and license information

    Please join us for a BrightTalk webinar where CA Partner R2 Consulting will share details about their Total Application Life Cycle Management solution and how it can help your organization create a holistic view into the business of IT.
