Taking Enterprise Continuous Integration to the Next Level
European webinar - 9 AM GMT (10 AM UK time zone)
The advantages of running Enterprise Continuous Integration (CI) processes are well documented - improved time-to-market and quality are just the top of the list. Implementing CI across the enterprise appears to require more build infrastructure than many IT organizations can sustain and a large build cloud puts a large performance load on the SCM system. Both Electric Cloud and Perforce provide unique technology to implement Enterprise CI while addressing critical challenges through key advantages such as preflight build support and source repository replication.
Join this webinar to learn how Perforce's investment in replication technology will help sustain an enterprise build cloud with little impact on the rest of the system. Perforce's 2012.1 release features a new replication behavior targeted at build cloud support, another step forward in Perforce's federated architecture. You’ll also learn how ElectricCommander 4.1 and the latest release of the ElectricCommander plugin for Perforce dramatically improve Enterprise CI adoption and preflight build performance.

1) Accelerated, error-free builds
Agile development creates more frequent builds. A CD platform that optimizes and parallelizes large builds across hundreds, or even thousands of cores is good. A solution that automatically detects dependencies to eliminate broken builds is even better.
2) Faster feedback
You shouldn’t have to wait until builds or tests are 100% complete before receiving feedback. A CD platform that allows real-time drill-down into warnings and errors as they occur give helps eliminate wasted time and CPU cycles.
3) Bulletproof and painless processes
CD isn’t continuous if jobs in flight are lost when a CI server goes own; or when it takes days for QA machines to be provisioned; or when deployments fail because of differences between QA and production. A CD platform should automate and normalize the build, test and deploy process across ANY environment (public, private or hybrid) with 1-click simplicity.
Kurt Bittner, Guest Speaker & Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Inc and Jacob Aleksynas Senior Build Engineer, Gap Inc
Applications have become competitive differentiators for businesses. Organizations who are able to deliver higher quality applications to their customers, faster than their competition, are winning the race in the Age Of The Customer. Many organizations understand this conceptually but struggle to quantify the benefits and costs of improving delivery capability. In this webinar, Kurt Bittner of Forrester Research, Principal Analyst serving Application Development and Delivery Professionals, will describe how leading organizations have gone about this analysis and how they are measuring their results.

What is the Automotive Workbench Solution? It’s a software and systems engineering development workbench, founded in a cloud-based, multi-vendor offering (Electric Cloud, CloudOne, Sodius, MethodPark, and IBM) that provides a one-stop shopping and delivery vehicle to you and your engineers. Electric Cloud's partner, Sodius, presents the benefits of the Automotive Workbench Solution at Spark 2013.
Providing a centralized system to manage the pipelines for all your applications can be daunting. Enabling several disparate teams to achieve continuous delivery can sound unrealistic. How do you satisfy the need for visibility, scalability, consistency, repeatability, and flexibility with a single tool? Learn how Electric Cloud created a solution to help you accomplish these goals.
Manish Aggarwal, Principal Engineer, Software, LSI
LSI had a large and growing number of test cases for testing different variants of chipsets, features and platforms. QA was unable to handle the scale of testing needed for a release. An automation solution was devised around Electric Cloud's ElectricCommander to allow test case selection based on multiple user-selected criteria and then execute those set of test cases manually or on a schedule. Results of those test cases were automatically emailed to users. This presentation describes improvements the automated system brought to the LSI team.

Jeffery Hammond, VP and Principal Analyst at Forrester and Anders Wallgren, CTO at Electric Cloud
Are you overwhelmed with the challenges of releasing today's complex business applications? Does it feel like you will never able to hit the market window or quality bar set by your business peers?
An effective release management process is a critical capability for organizations that want to get an edge on their competition through innovative software systems and services. Putting process guidelines in place and automating the build process are good first steps, but there are many additional tactics that organizations can use to increase their release capacity, from time-boxed releases, to milestone release schedule, up through continuous delivery of software changes.
Join Forrester VP and Principal Analyst Jeffrey Hammond and Electric Cloud CTO Anders Wallgren as they discuss five specific ways to streamline your release management processes with an eye toward faster, more predictable delivery of world class software.
Christopher Rommel, VP of Embedded Technology at VDC
We all know that Agile enables software organizations to continuously deliver working software faster to customers (internal or external). This helps software teams to not only deliver products faster but also in tune with the changing market needs. In practice however, organizations still struggle to get the full benefits of Agile methodology because they have not fully automated their practices (development, build, test, release).
Join us to hear Christopher Rommel, VP of M2M and Embedded Technology at VDC, address the fundamental issues and recommendations you should consider as you adopt Agile:
1. Drivers for adopting Agile
2. Critical organizational, process and tooling issues to consider and pitfalls to avoid
3. Recommendations on how to do this right by automating your processes

Unfortunately many organizations today are losing the race against the hacker community by a large margin. As noted in the Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigation Report, the percent of compromises that transpired in “days or less” has risen from 67% to 84% over the last 10 years. Over this same time period, the percent of compromise discoveries that occurred in “days or less” also improved, but not enough to narrow the time gap between compromise and discovery. In other words, the bad guys are accelerating their exploits faster than the good guys are accelerating their ability to discover.
The path to narrowing the time gap between compromise and discovery, and then neutralising business-impacting incidents, is through a comprehensive and mission-oriented Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). A well-designed SIEM not only advances security objectives, but it also works to direct personnel and process for maximum impact. With limited resources and a rising number of attacks, not all solutions are created equal. You need to ensure they are getting the best bang for your buck.
In this webinar, Michael Suby, vice president of research at the global research and consulting organization Frost & Sullivan, will discuss the factors that contribute to SIEM’s total cost of ownership.
• How to calculate the total cost of ownership of a SIEM
• The basic functionality that every SIEM should have to confidently breeze through preliminary activities
• The SIEM attributes that will have a lasting impact on your organization’s cost efficiency in effectively managing risk
Join us to learn the features that should be on the top of your scorecard when evaluating a SIEM for either first-time deployment or replacement.
