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.

Traditional project management approaches focus on measuring performance in terms of respecting time and cost estimates. Those measures confirm performance after the fact and do not address the main driver of project success: engaged high-performing teams.
This webinar, co-hosted by Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond, will present the link between continuously engaged teams, superior performance and successful high value project delivery, as well as explain how agile values, principles and tools can help build and develop continuously engaged, high-performing project teams.
Charlotte and Claude will also present and demonstrate, using real project data, a simple 3-step approach, based on agile techniques and inspired by their own experiences in projects, that will help you to quickly mobilize your teams (any types of teams, project-oriented or production-oriented) and keep them engaged and high-performing.
Those who attend the webinar will be given access to a pdf copy of the presentation slides as well as to a copy of an Excel template that can be used as a support tool to monitor and improve team engagement.

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.
