The Hidden Cost of Open Source Application Delivery Automation
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

- ElectricCommander customer use cases,
- key differentiators over AnthillPro and,
- how a leading consumer brand switched over from AnthillPro to ElectricCommander.

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.

Robert Baillargeon, Vice President of Engineering, Sodius
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.

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

Digital transformation is a top business priority and it includes embracing consumer trends around mobility. However, recent stats on the state of mobile app development in the enterprise are dismal. Gartner has also concluded that the enterprise mobile app journey is a complicated one for IT.
All too often mobile apps fail before they’re off the ground because companies try to do too much, too quickly. The road to digital transformation – and mobile – is a journey, not a race.
Join Tom Ku, VP Enterprise Mobility and hear him share our recommendation around breaking this journey down into digestible, easy to rollout and test steps before achieving ultimate mobile nirvana!
The competitive landscape of cloud computing in China and India looks very different today than it did a few years ago. Aside from gaining wholehearted support from local governments, positive investment climate has a role to play to ignite market interest and vendor support. While early cloud leaders like Amazon and Salesforce have helped define the evolving marketplace and invited further competition, local players, which used to be hampered by process oversights, are now turning to cloud-based business models and service delivery to reinvent themselves and stay agile as technology innovation collides with reality. How does the cloud market shape up in China and India so far? What types of cloud services will be important in near future? What does it mean for you going forward?

Over the past few years, malware authors have developed increasingly sophisticated and creative ways to infect endpoints. Encrypting ransomware is no longer merely an annoyance. It's a highly persistent and organized criminal activity in full deployment, with Ransomware-as-a-Service at its core. The damage from becoming a ransomware victim is considerable, and can even put organizations out of business.
At Webroot, we believe it's possible to effectively protect enterprises and users, but only by understanding your adversary and the techniques they use for their attacks. In this webinar, Webroot's own Senior Threat Research Analyst, Tyler Moffitt, will offer expert insights into the past, current, and emerging encrypting ransomware variants--and how businesses can stay ahead.
