Containers are engineered to support the need for continuous application changes. As self-contained artifacts, they accelerate the benefits of immutability, where full systems are disposable and can be quickly reconstructed – meaning no patching and configuration drift. But there’s no free-lunch and the ephemeral nature of containerized apps challenges teams to understand how a “now you see it, now you don’t” system impacts overall application performance.
New techniques are required to manage containerized changes in context of the highly dynamic state in which they operate. View this on-demand webcast to learn:
-How small changes in containers (in code, apps and architecture) can remain undetected, but cumulatively build to cause severe problems
-The application of multi-dimensional analysis to track container changes across time to pinpoint the impact on performance
-Methods to increase the supportability and resilience of containerized applications within and across the continuous delivery pipeline

3. Cover all your bases without compromising time & resources.
Today’s world of testing is a marathon! Testing teams are required to test more environments and mobile devices, without damaging the quality of their applications. They are required to test much earlier in the cycle, and to provide constant visibility, enabling development teams to have a short feedback loop in order to run faster and meet the business demand. This creates a big challenge for testing teams to keep up with the rapid pace of change without compromising on quality.
In this webinar, we will introduce you to StormRunner Functional, the very first and only hybrid test execution service to support the Micro Focus testing tools with Unified Functional Testing (UFT) and UFT Pro (LeanFT), as well as the popular and open source Selenium.

Agile teams are beginning to test earlier than ever before in order to improve quality, shorten test cycles and reduce the possibility of releasing bugs. To successfully move fast without breaking things, teams must integrate quality assurance into their CI/CD processes.
In this webinar, you will learn:
1. The fundamentals of automatable QA strategies
2. How to successfully integrate quality into your CI process
3. How to shorten the feedback loop between catching and fixing bugs
Test automation is often held up as the QA endgame. Teams mistakenly believe that if they can crack the automation code, all of their quality problems will be solved. But even when implemented perfectly, automated tests are brittle, flaky, and require significant upkeep.
Automation is a critical QA tool, but it's not a magic bullet. To get the most out of automated testing and drive high-quality releases, teams must devise a QA strategy that balances management costs and testing speed.
Join this web seminar to learn how to create a balanced test automation strategy that satisfies your team’s needs.
You’ll also learn:
- The true cost of test automation
- How to adapt your test automation approach to fit faster iteration cycles

Many teams are now “shifting left,” and starting their QA process earlier in the development cycle. But in most cases shift left testing was confined to unit testing alone. While unit testing is a core component of a continuous testing strategy, teams that want to optimize for speed and quality should shift functional testing left, too.
In this webinar, learn how to:
1. Adopt a shift left strategy for functional testing
2. Optimize your testing strategy to get comprehensive results more frequently
3. Develop and ship features faster with minimal risk of bugs in production
With less than a year before the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) goes into effect, many companies are scrambling to figure out how to be compliant with yet another regulation. A better way to approach this (or any) compliance initiative is to understand its basic requirements then search for solutions that will not only help you to meet compliance, but improve your business.
Don’t just become compliant, become better! The EU GDPR is not only an opportunity to evaluate how your teams use personal data for testing, but how those teams can build better data from scratch with faster and better results.
Join our expert, Nathan Devoll from CA Technologies, as he clearly explains the EU GDPR and builds the case for generating new data more quickly without the compliance headaches. You’ll come away with a clear understanding how you can become EU GDPR compliant and build better data, at the same time!
Development teams are shipping more features, faster than ever, and each release carries the risk of introducing bugs to your users.

Mobile Users don’t accept bad performance or dysfunctional applications and abandon bad apps with a wipe of their hand. Bad mobile applications are far more complex to test given the fragmentation of devices out there and different network conditions in real life that are difficult to simulate in development labs.
In this webinar we cover the Micro Focus approach to these issues and provide a live showcase on how to secure a stable app that exactly does what it is supposed to do.
Are you getting that mobile moment? Do you know what your users are really experiencing when using your app? Do you wonder where the bad rating comes from you got after the latest release of your app?
Mobile user experience is actually very complicated to catch and measure, it is multi-facetted. In this webinar we will cover the most important aspects of a 5-Star mobile user experience and how you can really measure and monitor it.
In a live example we will then show you how easy it is to get it done.
