Controlling Color in Print Production to G7® Specifications—Every Day, Every Print Run
Many print operations already understand the benefits of color management using gray balance as a control factor. And calibrating your press to meet the Idealliance G7 specification is becoming a major selling point to earn print buyer confidence.
When calibration is done as a one-time event, most offset press control systems still rely on traditional solid ink density control in print production, with no way of automatically controlling and monitoring G7 metrics, avoiding critical color variations.
The piece that has been missing—until now—is the ability to use inline color control to continuously monitor and keep every print job within G7 specifications. Rather than thinking of G7 as a one-time calibration event, QuadTech and System Brunner are introducing a complete system for ensuring G7 quality for every print run.
Join us for an informative webinar explaining G7 as a calibration methodology and for press control, INSTRUMENT FLIGHT® with gray balance control (the world’s first G7 certified press control system), and the newest software enhancement for controlling print production to G7 metrics.
Sponsored by QuadTech. Featured speakers: G7 experts Daniel Würgler, CEO, System Brunner AG and Don Hutcheson, President, HutchColor, LLC

Dominance of mobile devices and platforms, necessitate organizations to deliver superior quality faster than competition in an evolving technological landscape. More so for the telecom industry where customer experience and retention are interconnected.
In this joint webinar by Vodafone, Experitest and TCS, learn how to convert the mobile testing challenges into opportunities, by skillfully taking customer experience to whole new level.
Many organizations struggle with the implementation of the engineering practices of DevOps, specifically with continuous testing. What if software development teams had a solution that was 100% cloud based (for distributed teams), provided real-time data analytics (for quick feedback), and supported the activities of build, edit and execution of test scripts in the cloud (nothing on the desktop). Couple that with the ability to test mobile apps on multiple devices (for scale and efficiency), the option to use containers plus existing tools (including open source), and support visual UX testing (for user experience and accessibility) while linking directly to existing continuous delivery infrastructure, and the goal of continuous testing becomes in reach.
Join Clint Sprauve, Product Marketing Manager for Continuous Testing & Automation, to see the future of continuous testing in action and get a sneak preview of the latest software solutions for test automation.

One of the advantages of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) is the ability to modify the network on the fly. A closed feedback loop between the service assurance solution and the orchestration system enables network self-healing and self-optimization when providing mission critical services. By identifying performance issues we can take immediate action to solve problems or improve service reliability, thus reducing mean time to repair (MTTR).
You need to ensure that the analysis is performed in real time. Most service assurance solutions set real-time analytics as a goal. Being such a key component of the service assurance solution, further analysis is required on how close to that goal the solution can reach. There are many areas in this type of solution that demand attention: data collection, normalization, correlation, analysis, service-level impact, alerting and more. Each element requires a specific set of strategies to optimize the time taken to make a determination.
Key questions you need to ask when defining real-time analytics include: How many moving pieces do we have on the service assurance solution? How many different vendors are involved? How many data collection systems? Do you need to transfer that data to a second service quality or service experience analytics solution before deciding you need to request a change from the orchestrator? How does your system scale? How many times do I need to manipulate the data to integrate it across multiple systems? Do you need to aggregate collected data at multiple levels before a decision is made?
In this webinar, and its associated whitepaper, we go deep into these aspects of how real-time analytics are crucial to enable closed-loop service assurance in your SDN or NFV solution. The webinar will provide you with ideas on how to optimize your service assurance platform.

Behavior-Driven Development with Ruby/Cucumber automation is a practical, fail-proof, read-to-use strategy or process that improves software quality and decreases costs.
Ambiguity and miscommunication cause the majority of critical defects and undesirable outcomes in the software development lifecycle. Behavior Driven Development (BDD) ensures that requirements are accurate. It builds a mutual understanding of what should be developed and tested through a common vocabulary.
This webinar introduces BDD methods that promote product quality by generating business requirements in Gherkin (Given-When-Then) format. Tool agnostic, BDD emphasizes communication between business, requirements analysts, developers, and testers to ensure quality expectations are achieved. Describing requirements in the form of system behavior eliminates scope creep and guarantees proper software functionality.
