Application changes are a fact of life for a database administrator. They frequently involve infrastructure modifications such as hardware and software upgrades, platform migrations, configuration transformations such as converting a single instance Oracle Database to Real Application Clusters, as well as more mundane changes like schema modifications. Extensive testing is usually performed to assess impact of these changes but despite that many problems are uncovered only after production deployment. In this presentation we will discuss strategies for proper unit and load testing that every database administrator must learn in order to effectively manage the risk of change in their data centers.

  • How to pick the right SAM tool? How to pick the right SAM tool? Barry Friedman, Global VP Vendor Alliances Recorded: May 4 2016 21 mins
    SAM has been touted as a way to mitigate license compliance risk but in actuality the true value lies in its ability to reduce software costs and maximize/optimize your software investment.
    Additionally, a critical component of a successful SAM program should also be measured by the value it delivers to others in the organization. The definition of “Others” depends on your organization and can include such areas as finance, Security, Help Desk, IT Service Management, HR, etc. This Webinar will focus on leveraging a structured methodology and a simple algorithm to capture the requirements presented by “others”, how to validate the tool’s ability to deliver on those requirements and how much weight they carry in the final selection ensuring all stakeholders need are met.

  • Using HP ALM Within a State of the art DevOps Framework Using HP ALM Within a State of the art DevOps Framework Philip Howard, Bloor Research and Josh Taylor, CA Technologies Recorded: Apr 30 2016 53 mins
    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

  • Adopt IT Operations Analytics to Make Better Decisions, Faster Adopt IT Operations Analytics to Make Better Decisions, Faster Donnie Berkholz and Erin Avery Recorded: Apr 28 2016 53 mins
    In the digital era, IT has an extraordinary opportunity to become a data-driven business partners helping the business achieve its goals of revenue generation, cost reduction, and risk mitigation. However, IT reporting and analytics have historically focused on descriptive and diagnostic work – describing what happened and why. The speed and agility of the digital revolution demands the ability to not only describe what happened in the past but to predict what might happen in the future and to make recommendations about what should be done.

    IT operations analytics offers IT organizations a path to evolve the use of machine, operational and business data for more effective, forward-looking prioritization and decision-making. And in a recent BMC sponsored survey, 79% of IT pros said they would be more effective at their job if they had access to non-IT sources of data to help them make decisions in business context.

    Join Donnie Berkholz, 451 Research, and Erin Avery, BMC Software, for a high energy, fast paced discussion on adaptive, real-time analytics that any IT operations organization can adopt to become highly prescriptive and predictive.
