  • HP ALM offers a great tool for managing and executing tests, and can form the cornerstone of a solid DevOps framework. However, DevOps involves far more than just tooling.

    This webinar will demonstrate how to import BPM models to CA Agile Requirements Designer and further convert them into an active flowchart. Optimized tests can thereby be derived directly from the BPMs, bringing the business and IT into close alignment and eliminating manual effort. If the BPM changes, difference and dependency analysis and can be used to identify its impact on the system, automatically updating test assets.

    Featuring Philip Howard of Bloor Research, this webinar will show you how the right tooling, processes and culture can fully automate testing, and how testing can be embedded within a success DevOps pipeline, driven by the design phase.

    By attending this demo, you will understand:

    - Why traditional testing techniques might not be suited to DevOps, with manual test design and maintenance creating delays and allowing an unacceptable number of defects

    - How a requirements driven approach can eliminate many of the testing bottlenecks within a DevOps framework, while avoiding the “information hops” which degrade quality

    - How to automate test case design, data provisioning and maintenance, building a re-usable library of test components to accommodate rigorous testing within a DevOps framework
  • Die Anforderungen an die IT sind klar definiert: Anwendungen sollen schneller, qualitativ hochwertiger und fehlerfrei entwickelt und zur Verfügung gestellt werden. Diese Anforderungen können nur durch eine effektive Integration der IT-Werkzeuge erfüllt werden – auch im Netzwerk.

    Ist die heterogene Netzwerkinfrastruktur aufgebaut, muss diese sicher und stabil betrieben werden. Neben dem Fehler- und Verfügbarkeitsmanagement sind auch die Disziplinen Performance- und Traffic-Management, sowie das Konfigurationsmanagement in Kombination mit dem Compliance-Management zur Einhaltung von fremden und eigenen Richtlinien notwendig.

    Um die beschriebenen Netzwerkmanagement-Anforderungen abzudecken, gibt es viele unterschiedliche Werkzeuge. Typischerweise sind diese oft nicht – oder nur mangelhaft – integriert. Dies hat zur Folge, dass die reibungslose Netzwerküberwachung im laufenden Betrieb scheitert, da die Pflege der isolierten bzw. nicht integrierten Systeme sehr arbeitsintensiv ist. Eine oft verfolgte Best-of-Breed-Strategie ist hier also nicht zielführend.

    Die Netzwerkmanagement-Lösung von Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), bestehend aus dem Network Node Manager i (NNMi) und dem Network Automation (NA), ist eine vollständig integrierte Softwarelösung, um die heutigen Netzwerkmanagement-Anforderungen abzudecken und die Arbeitsaufwände zu reduzieren.

    Erfahren Sie in unserem kostenfreien Live-Webinar mehr über die Lösung von HPE anhand von konkreten Anwendungsfällen unserer Kunden.

  • Is your VoLTE network ready to launch?

    Frequent news of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) live network failures and deployment delays have made mobile network operators more cautious to avoid being in the next headline themselves. The inevitable truth is that VoLTE deployment is ultra-complex. To increase confidence when launching VoLTE, all potential failures must be found and fixed before going live.

    There is no getting around the need for load testing in the lab network: most critical failures found in load testing are not detected during functional and regression testing. And then there is the production network, which is not the same as the lab network. They defer from connectivity (IP, MPLS, etc.) to geo-redundant, application, capacity and scale configuration. It is equally important and vital to load test the production network to discover failures that may not be found when testing the lab network.

    This webinar explains the additional benefits of testing the production network and how this can increase confidence to launch VoLTE services successfully. The webinar also explores the differences between lab and production network testing for use cases such as IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) and evolved packet core (EPC) and end-to-end testing.

  • Driverless and autonomous car technologies are ushering in the upcoming revolution of the automotive industry, with large corporates such as Google, Apple, Uber, and traditional Auto OEMs working on their own flavor. It’s the inevitable future of transportation that can’t be ignored. In the traditional insurance industry, the driver’s responsibility is dependent on what and how they drive, but with driverless cars, who is in charge?

    Algorithm Base Insurance is the next reality of the upcoming driverless car era, in which insurance will be decided by the quality of algorithm running the car fleet. In this session, Dr. Pratik Desai will explain his work on how IoT, V2V, Autonomous driving and Big Data will change the way the Automotive Insurance industry functions.
  • The cloud concept originated with the dot.com phenomenon in the early 2000s, but was brought to reality by the large web-based and social media companies in the last half dozen years. However, the requirements companies like Google and Amazon had for their clouds were beyond what traditional IT infrastructures could deliver - so they designed their own. These hyper-scale companies used software-defined, scale-out architectures and commodity hardware to build flexible, yet cost effective cloud infrastructures.
    Enterprises are moving towards a cloud-based model to deliver IT services. They see the potential of the hyper-scalers’ approach to creating cloud infrastructures but don’t have the resources or expertise to make that do-it-yourself model work. The Open Storage Platform (OSP) provides these companies with a solution that leverages commercial, off-the-shelf components and a “roll your own” approach to building private clouds.
    Join Evaluator Group Sr. Analyst, Eric Slack and learn how companies are using the Open Storage Platform to build private clouds. In this informative webinar you will get the information to:

     Understand the OSP model and its origin

     Understand where OSP is being used

     Understand the benefits OSP can provide

     Understand how to implement OSP

  • What Wholesale Managed Cloud Means for MSPs

    Cloud technologies have reinvented the way infrastructure resources are built, orchestrated, deployed and consumed. However, it has not reinvented the channels through which much of this technology reaches the late majority of small and medium-sized businesses. For these businesses, and many enterprises, managed services in the hands of a trusted advisor remain essential to the consumption of IT.
    For the MSPs, VARs and integrators that fill this advisory role, building and operating cloud infrastructure of their own is expensive, resource intensive and unnecessary. However, the opportunity to resell existing public cloud platforms holds many advantages.

    This webinar from 451 Research and Egenera will include:
    -Discussion of customer cloud adoption trends, barriers to adoption and service provider selection criteria.
    -An overview of market trends related to the delivery of managed services and applications based on cloud infrastructure
    -A look at Egenera’s Xfinity product, a wholesale cloud offering aimed at MSPs.

    Attendees will learn about the opportunity that exists for distributing a public cloud infrastructure product to their customers, and the customer requirements and challenges that will help them to effectively position those products.
  • The first rule of data analytics for fast-growing companies? Measure all things.

  • There is an assumption that the more you spend on security technology, the more secure you will be. However, it is evident from the media that even though organisations are spending many on security products they are still being breached. Majority of organisations are falling back on 'historical, layered defence strategies’ with the tendency to think that by merely upgrading software and building up walls, their organisation is safe, but what if the attacker dug underneath the wall?. Does this demonstrate they are spending effectively and keeping their organisation secure?
    In this webinar, we will discuss why organisations don't need to spend more on security to be better protected but need to spend wisely with the budget they already have. Organisations continually need to think about how they readjust and refocus on strategies that enable them to be resilient and recover from a cyber-attack. The webinar will cover:
    Spend vs Resiliency – is it proportionate?
    Strategy for protecting what really matters
    Focusing on the 5% of alerts that really matter

  • The successful adoption of NFV depends on the ability of a virtualized cloud infrastructure to deliver sufficient performance comparable to today’s proprietary network appliances.

    Enterprise/IT cloud hardware specifications and configurations are not optimized to handle heavy NFV dataplane workloads needed by Communications Service Providers. In order to achieve this kind of performance, you need advanced processor and networking technologies embedded in silicon and in PCIe devices, but even so, you need to ensure your VNFs are ultimately able to leverage these capabilities.

    In this talk, we'll show how NFV throughput performance varies depending on proper VNF workload placement configuration, by declaring what the VNF requires from the hardware (SR-IOV, DPDK, etc) and ensuring proper matching and configuration in NFVI. We will see how Enhanced Platform Awareness and intelligent orchestration are enablers for such extreme performance.
  • Until recently there has been very little fundamental innovation in how WANs are designed and implemented. Driven by the development of Software-Defined Networking (SDN), that is changing.

    Now, there are tremendous advantages that result from applying SDN concepts within the WAN. To date, the discussion of an SD-WAN has focused primarily on WAN solutions that feature dynamic load balancing of traffic over MPLS and Internet links that connect branch offices. While that is a very important application, applying SDN concepts to the WAN can provide far more value than what is possible with a hybrid WAN use case.

    Join us for our live webinar with industry expert Dr. Jim Metzler on Tuesday, May 10th, at 12 pm EDT/17.00 BST to learn more about how SDN is changing the way networks are built and managed, and about the real value an SD-WAN can bring to distributed networks.

    Attendees will learn about:

    — Virtualized compute & virtualized networks
    — How SDN enables network services
    — SD-WAN uses cases beyond branch offices, including IoT, in-vehicle, and more
    — The business demand versus social demand driving SDN/SD-WAN adoption

  • PCI DSS 3.1 is scheduled to become effective as of June 30, 2016, and includes several changes - and challenges for retailers. The most notable changes include:
    •PCI DSS applies to any organization that store, process or transmit account data (credit card data);
    •Older versions of SSL are no longer regarded as a secure technology and, therefore, no longer can be used as a security control;
    •Passwords must be changed at least once every 90 days.
    These changes can be seen as a mandate for organizations to reinforce their level of compliance. But Tim Brown of Dell argues that becoming compliant should, in fact, be a result of your security program, not an end in and of itself. All data that falls under PCI DSS 3.1 should be appropriately secured, and effective identity and access management also leads to effective compliance.
