  • Modernizing SAP with scriptless testing
    Modernizing SAP with scriptless testing Thomas Koeppner, Micro Focus Recorded: Jul 19 2018 49 mins
    SAP modernization presents a combination of business challenges and technical challenges, both of which must be overcome in order to achieve a successful transformation. For best results, the business experts and the technical experts must work together on the transformation, and in particular, when testing updates to the SAP system. Scriptless testing is the most effective way to bridge the gap between those with an intimate understanding of the business processes, and those more at home with the technical details of SAP.

    This webinar will explore some of the challenges of testing SAP systems, and explain how scriptless test automation, using Micro Focus Business Process Testing (BPT), allows business users to define the processes, flows and data to be tested, while automation engineers implement the automated components that form each test’s building blocks.

    Takeaways
    • Understand the challenges of testing of critical systems such as SAP
    • Discover how scriptless testing can bring technical and business experts together to create effective automated tests
    • Understand how the components underlying scriptless test can be reused across different tests, and maintained with ease

  • Actionable Insight in Massively Scalable Environments
    Actionable Insight in Massively Scalable Environments Peter Waterhouse, Sr. Advisor, CA Technologies Recorded: Mar 21 2018 55 mins
    Containers speed development, but the applications they support can exponentially increase the number of alerts and system checks. Asynchronous messaging, more dependencies and API/network centricity all conspire to overload application support teams. Furthermore, old monolithic architectures where failure conditions were known and predictable, now give way to a more complex set of conditions involving more moving parts – making manual root cause determination like trying to ‘find a needle in a haystack of needles’.

    View this on-demand webcast to learn more about the impact of containers on development and support teams and the strategies needed to prevent alert fatigue and burnout. Topics for discussion include:
    -Why traditional and manual alerting methods no longer scale in container environments and the detrimental impact on teams and growth
    -The application of adaptive baselining and proven statistical models to help prevent false positives and detect hidden container performance anomalies
    -The use of advanced analytics to collect, ingest and correlate multiple conditions to a single root-cause.
    -How production container analytics can be used to guide design decisions and identify practices that correlate to higher levels of performance
