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.
After a record-setting year in 2015, where will the tech M&A market go in 2016? What trends that pushed M&A spending to its highest level since the Internet Bubble burst will continue to drive deals and which ones will wind down? What other sectors are likely to see the most activity this year? And most importantly, what valuations will be handed out in deals over the coming year? Drawing on data and views from across 451 Research, the Tech M&A Outlook webinar maps many of the major developments in the IT landscape (IoT, Big Data, cloud computing) to how those influence corporate acquisition strategies. Join us for a look ahead to what we expect for tech M&A in 2016.
Everything is getting digitized - everything is becoming “software empowered”. Who is writing all this software? It is central IT or is it business IT and the third parties they employ? How can central IT ensure that it is relevant this exciting new, software empowered, world?

Join the upcoming webinar, “5 Ways to Use Mobile Behavioral Data to Send Engaging Emails” to see how brands can create impactful emails that are ideal for a mobile-first world.
Kahuna’s Doug Roberge will lead a panel discussion including Yummly’s COO Brian Witlin about how innovative companies are rethinking email. This includes leveraging insights from consumer behavior across all channels to deliver the right message to the right person on the right channel.
After this webinar, you’ll:

In 2016, it's time to revamp your mobile app strategy.
It’s no longer enough to target mobile customers based on bare-bones demographics. Now you need to understand who your customers are by segmenting them based on in-app behaviors. This includes their interests, activities, and even the times of day they’re most likely to interact with your business.
To kick off new year, we’re laying down the law in The State of Mobile 2016. Alongside top mobile brands, we will analyze key learnings from the past year — the strategies that succeeded and the surprises that didn't. Next, our speakers share their biggest mobile secrets, including predictions and plans for the rest of the year.
These real-life case studies will help inform your 2016 mobile marketing strategy.
In this webinar, you'll:
* Optimize your user onboarding to improve lifelong retention
* Learn about tools you didn’t know existed for driving deeper personalization
* Triple mobile push notification opt-ins through new tactics that are proven success factors
Relationships are hard work. Relationships in the modern mobile age are about ten times harder. It comes down to more than just a message and smart branding – it's one part heart, one part messaging and about four parts data science. What worked yesterday probably won't work today and it definitely isn't going to be good enough tomorrow.

More than 8 out of 10 customers are moving from one channel to another to complete a transaction or get an issue resolved. And, on average, they use more than 4 different “channels” over the course of their respective journeys. Despite this, customers expect consistent answers and personalized service regardless of their channel preference, device of choice and time of day.

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.

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.
Hundreds of organizations and thousands of developers across the world use Electric Cloud’s ElectricAccelerator.

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
