Is your continuous delivery pipeline vulnerable? How do you bring the control and visibility required to ensure security?
As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, the opportunities for data breaches have risen proportionately. Privileges are extended to users and bots to perform a specific job and often aren’t revoked upon completion. Administration credentials are being stolen and compromised accounts and unmanaged systems are proving to be real threats to enterprises. It’s clear that user governance isn’t a luxury then, it’s an imperative.
CA Privileged User Governance (CA-PG) provides the functionality required to safeguard businesses from unauthorized access and breaches. It enables a high level of control, auditability and transparency to be introduced to your organization’s privileges.
By combining CA-PG and Automic Release Automation, you can automatically provide – and revoke – users and bots with necessary access credentials and privileges as and when needed. Doing so limits the risk of unauthorized access and potential data breaches.
This Webinar Explores:
Automic Release Automation – what it is and why it’s the industry-leading solution
The goals and challenges of continuous delivery

Introducing the OMG’s Data Residency Maturity Model
With the rise of managed IT services and cloud computing, sensitive data is regularly moved across countries and jurisdictions, which can be in direct conflict with various international, national or local regulations dictating where certain types of data can be stored (e.g., the European Union’ General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR). Data residency is also a consideration of data owners responsible for protecting and securing data from unintended access.
The Object Management Group® (OMG®), a technology standards consortium, launched a working group in 2015 to address the challenges of data residency and define a standards roadmap to help stakeholders manage the location of their data and metadata.
Given the complexity of the issue, a stepwise improvement plan is necessary. This webinar will introduce a new Data Residency Maturity Model (DRMM) proposed in December 2017. Similar to the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) invented in 1990 at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the DRMM contains five maturity levels aimed at helping an organization improve their practices and governance of data residency. The OMG seeks feedback on the DRMM and calls on all interested parties to contribute to this work.
May 25, 2018 is the countdown for compliance with GDPR: the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation that threatens potentially enormous penalties for companies that don’t provide sufficient privacy to data for EU citizens: including customers, employees and prospects. There isn’t much time – and GDPR compliance can be especially tough for enterprises with complex environments like SAP. In this webinar, we’ll describe how powerful automation tools can make your path to GDPR compliance painless, rapid and low risk. The countdown to May 25 doesn’t have to be a doomsday clock.

DevOps is a crucial element of digital transformation, but how do you avoid hidden pitfalls when adopting the practice?
In today’s application economy, behind every digital transformation success story, there’s the agility facilitated by DevOps. And with agility the key to both success and survival, businesses are rushing to implement DevOps across their organization. But for each successful DevOps story, there’s at least one example of failure. In their haste to achieve agility, organizations the world over are making the same mistakes.
In this webinar, Automic’s own Product Marketing Director, Ron Gidron discusses the Top 10 Ways to Fail at DevOps as learned from organizations around the globe. But, in taking a look at how to fail at DevOps implementation, Ron has also been able to uncover the successful patterns of DevOps high achievers.
This Webinar Discusses:
Lessons learned from companies attempting to adopt DevOps
The need to recognize and fund DevOps as part of your digital transformation initiative
Successful patterns demonstrated by DevOps high achievers
The business imperatives fueling digital transformation are changing not just where enterprise IT is located but how it gets used to support business innovation and reinvention. As a result, enterprises are embracing new, heterogeneous IT deployment models that combine on-premises and off-premises, cloud and non-cloud; and public cloud/private cloud resources. Colocation plays a key role in the increasingly complex workload placement decision process, helping organizations get out of the business of managing their own datacenters while also facilitating access to the expanding array of services offered by cloud providers.
Join 451 Research’s Melanie Posey, Research Vice President and General Manager Voice of the Enterprise and Dan Thompson, Senior Analyst, and Iron Mountain’s Charisse Richards, Senior IT Leader for Iron Mountain Data Centers to explore how colocation is evolving into an important foundation of hybrid IT, integrating the security and compliance of private IT infrastructure with the flexibility and agility of public clouds.
Understanding the benefits and mashed-up world of containers, microservices, continuous delivery
Join Automic Software and learn about containers, Docker and their place in DevOps, as well as their role in building out a Continuous Delivery pipeline.
In this webcast we will discuss:
-Container basics – what they are, where did they come from, what they can do for me
-Docker – a container management framework
-DockerHub – a repository of reusable app-in-a-box images or micro-services
-Micro-Services - light-weight and portable app-in-a-box containers
Containers are transforming IT and application distribution models much like virtual machines did during the late 90s and early 00s. OS containers wrap-up an application in a self-contained filesystem and that includes everything the app needs to run independently: binaries, runtime libraries, system tools, system packages, etc. This level of simplification and compartmentalization allows applications to be spun up much faster than before while ensuring consistent and predictive up time.D
Application Release Automation has transformed the speed at which DevOps teams increase business agility
Are you under pressure to contribute to your company’s digital transformation? While matching consumer trends is the priority today, most IT departments struggle for true agility when struggling with the diverse combination of skills, tools and technology that application release entails today.
In this webinar, Automic DevOps evangelist Ron Gidron introduces you to Automic Release Automation, a market-leading platform that automates all components of the release cycle and its complex dependencies, and takes you through the ground-breaking features of the new v12. Gartner predict that “by 2020, 50% of companies will have implemented at least one application release automation solution, up from less than 10% today.”
Crucial topics that can transform your release velocity include:
-Automating Container adoption, monitoring and management
-Cloud adoption strategy
-Making core back-end apps agile
-Removing maintenance windows
-Driving intelligent automation across you islands of automation
Of all the Agile practices, none is more foundational than the inspect & adapt cycle of the retrospective. Even if you struggle with every other aspect of Agile, if you consistently engage in productive retrospectives, you will get better.
Industry surveys and studies suggest that 80% or more of Agile organizations have at least some distributed teams. Most of the traditional retrospective methods assume that all team members are co-located.
Running effective retrospectives for distributed teams presents unique challenges, but also, potentially, some great advantages. In this webinar, Agile coach and Instant Agenda co-founder Michael Ball-Marian will discuss the three greatest challenges to running distributed Agile retrospectives and how to solve them. Michael will share a variety of tips and techniques that you can use in any retrospective, co-located or distributed. Finally, he’ll present a few ways in which a distributed retrospective can actually be better than a co-located one.

Every organization undergoes different pain points during their agile transformation.
We've been a part of many of those transformations, and our experts can offer insights and best practices for your organization to overcome those pain points. Join Laureen Knudsen, Agile Advisor, Executive Management at CA Technologies, agile expert and co-author of Modern Business Management: Creating a Built-to-Change Organization and resident agile expert, on Tuesday, April 17, for your opportunity to ask the questions on your mind as your organization starts, expands and scales agile across multiple teams and departments.
ITIL, and more broadly, IT Service Management, is now a 31-year-old discipline. It was originally established in the UK under the government of Margaret Thatcher in 1985. For those working in IT Service and Support, the implications of this are profound. First, it means that IT support professionals have an enormous body of knowledge to draw upon for industry best practices. Secondly, it almost always means that other corporate services, such as HR, facilities, safety, etc., are far less mature than IT Service and Support. Savvy IT managers recognize this opportunity, and are increasingly taking up the challenge of providing enterprise leadership in corporate services.
I want to challenge leaders from both IT and non-IT services to give serious thought to the role of enterprise services in your organization. This is the kind of opportunity that doesn’t come along very often. It has the potential to transform the delivery of all services in the enterprise, while saving money and improving the quality of service that your customers receive. Moreover, it can be a game changer for your career. Enterprises worldwide are in desperate need of leadership on this issue. So if you have been looking for that next big career opportunity, it may be right in front of you!
