The Hidden Cost of Open Source Application Delivery Automation

Jim McMahon, Product Manager at Electric Cloud
Application delivery automation tools should do more than just automate delivery. They should reduce companies’ time to market, scale to enterprise levels, provide cross-project visibility, enable compliance and security, and increase resource utilization. Many open source tools fail to provide all of these benefits – inflating companies’ total cost of ownership. Join our webinar to learn about the hidden costs of open source tools and how Electric Cloud’s ElectricCommander provides the enterprise-level solution you need for success.

Who should attend this webinar?
•Companies struggling to consolidate open source sprawl
•Growing organizations currently using open source automation tools
•Build, test, and release teams held back by their current automation process
•Managers and executives who have limited visibility into their software application development process

  • Malware today is very different from just a few years ago. Traditional AV technology is no longer able to consistently and fully remediate or defend against today’s most advanced threats. New and emerging threats such as ransomware, social engineering driven attacks and micro variant financial threats are just some examples of difficult to remediate infections. This presentation will take a look at the malware landscape and explain why these tactics are so effective against traditional AV technology. We will examine three specific families of infections and highlight their tactics to evade detection and what issues occur with remediation. Lastly, we will talk about Webroot’s innovation and how our SecureAnywhere AV solution is capable of defending against, and remediating today’s most advanced threats.

  • From Commit to Consumer - Three Must Haves for Speedy Delivery Recorded: Apr 22 2014 57 mins
    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.

  • 3 Steps to Automate Your Way to Agile Recorded: Apr 16 2013 62 mins
    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
