The Hidden Cost of Open Source Application Delivery Automation

Jim McMahon, Product Manager at Electric Cloud
Application delivery automation tools should do more than just automate delivery. They should reduce companies’ time to market, scale to enterprise levels, provide cross-project visibility, enable compliance and security, and increase resource utilization. Many open source tools fail to provide all of these benefits – inflating companies’ total cost of ownership. Join our webinar to learn about the hidden costs of open source tools and how Electric Cloud’s ElectricCommander provides the enterprise-level solution you need for success.

Who should attend this webinar?
•Companies struggling to consolidate open source sprawl
•Growing organizations currently using open source automation tools
•Build, test, and release teams held back by their current automation process
•Managers and executives who have limited visibility into their software application development process

  • Network Managers have a tall order in IT organizations today. Typically, they are tasked with two conflicting business directives:

    1. Deliver optimal end-user experience for networked applications

    2. Reduce the operational cost of the network, or reduce the IT budget

    But the knee jerk approach of “throwing bandwidth at the problem” while potentially improving end user experience, is hardly the answer to cost management and network optimization.

    In this webinar, Chris Greer will discuss the challenges that result from the common approaches utilized today in capacity planning and, outline a new way, comprised of 4 actionable steps to optimizing the bandwidth you may already have.

  • Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system serving more than 100 communities in Northern California. Each year its 5,000 physicians care for more than 10 million outpatient visits and discharge more than 200,000 in-patients.

    As healthcare systems transition from “fee for service” to “fee for value” reimbursement models, there is an increasing focus to drive down 30-day re-admission rates, particularly for high risk patients. To this end, Sutter Health is piloting Project RED (Re-engineered Discharge) which leverages predictive analytics to identify high-risk patients and then prescribes alternative discharge workflows aimed at lowering the risk of re-admission.

    Join us as Kristen Wilson-Jones, Sutter RD&D CTO, shares how Sutter Health has leveraged MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform in an orchestrated plecosystem of technologies to power Project RED by enabling real-time patient risk scoring, clinical workflow management and bi-directional integration with Epic.

    Topics covered
    -------------------
    + How Sutter Health is lowering 30-day re-admission rates by re-engineeing clinical workflows
    + The need for connectivity to enable workflow re-design
    + Best practice in moving from an application-centric to a data object-centric connectivity approach

  • Gartner has predicted 18-20% growth in SaaS market, and expects it to hit US $22.1 billion by the year 2015. They have also measured that SaaS adoption rate has increased many fold in the last few years (almost 71% of enterprises use SaaS solutions).

    SaaS has come a long way from “hype” to “norm”. The key to this change is the confidence that has been built by the cloud/SaaS community by providing enterprise class security. Since, SaaS model of delivery has become a defacto standard of delivering products it’s critical for software providers to ensure that their SaaS product meets the required industry security standards. In this webinar, we will address the security aspects related to architecture, deployment and management of SaaS solutions.

    Key Takeaways:
    • Security considerations in each of the architecture layers
    • Data isolation risks and mitigation plans

  • From Commit to Consumer - Three Must Haves for Speedy Delivery Recorded: Apr 22 2014 57 mins
    Sam Fell, Director of Product Marketing and Ken McKnight, Solutions Architect
    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.

  • 3 Steps to Automate Your Way to Agile Recorded: Apr 16 2013 62 mins
    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
