[Webinar] Cloud Automation Journeys: How to Convert Your Lab into a Cloud
Labs are the center of IT innovation. With demands of increased agility, traditional labs can't keep up. Traditional lab build-out and consumption models need to change. Lab infrastructure needs to become more efficient, automated and offer cloud-like consumption with environments delivered as-a-service.

Organizations that achieve the automation and self-service ideals of DevOps are able to build, release, and deploy features and apps to users faster and with better quality than the competition. But those ideals are elusive to many teams, especially where changes to existing build and release pipelines are met with fear of losing control over security, compliance, and cloud infrastructure costs.
Join experts from the DevOps Institute and AWS Marketplace to learn how to enable Development and QA teams with automated, self-service, and compliant environments across the pipeline to speed up application development and delivery.
Join us to learn about:
Best practices on how to effectively implement GitOps with infrastructure version control
Getting Dev, QA, Ops and Security teams working together to enable self-service environments across the CI/CD pipeline
How to adopt immutable infrastructure patterns to avoid painful rollback scenarios and easily re-build vs. repair production environments
Using tools in AWS Marketplace, such as Quali CloudShell Colony, to provide controlled, self-service, on-demand environments for developers and QA
Bottom-up DevOps initiatives are a wonderful way of bringing about positive change to application teams. A common danger is that local efforts can lead to local optimization. At some point, grassroots efforts start to build their own technical debt which hamper their initial promise and extinguish the teams' excitement. At DevOps Experience, an annual virtual summit hosted by MediaOps, Quali's CTO, Maya Ber Lerner, discusses common life cycles of bottom-up DevOps projects and their use of specific open source and commercial tools, as well as pros and cons of each.
For the latest episode, our host, Arta, sat down with Quali's Chief Product Officer, Edan, as he shared the secret to accelerating product release cycles while maintaining #visibility and governance. Check out the interview to learn more now.
Everyone knows that infrastructure automation is fundamental to any DevOps platform. However, infrastructure automation requires not only coding abilities, but also cloud network, security and cost expertise, and Infrastructure as Code skills. It’s not something developers want to waste their time on. Being able to provide on-demand self-service infrastructure provisioning and deployment to dev teams can free them from building and maintaining their own cloud automation. It makes it possible for developers to focus on developing the features and products that really matter.
But as self-service increases in popularity and becomes a mandatory requirement, you may ask yourself: are all self-services created equally?
In this webinar, Maya Ber Lerner, CTO at Quali, will discuss:
- Common implementations of self-service and on-demand infrastructure
- Best practices for choosing the right implementation

Making DevOps initiatives scale is a maturity milestone companies are struggling to achieve. While the benefits of value stream automation to business agility is clear, most businesses find it difficult to overcome the skill and knowledge gap. In this webinar, Quali's Maya Ber Lerner and 6point6's Mark Debney and Chris Porter will talk about the essential elements in achieving widespread adoption of DevOps practices. From taking a DevOps pulse, to overcoming the talent shortage and practical best practices for scalable Platform Ops.

The world depends on software more than ever, increasing the risk presented by low software quality. QA teams are required to adopt modern approaches to quality in order to keep up.
In recent months, the rising need for remote testing exposed weak links in many businesses’ QA processes. But it also presents an opportunity to tackle old QA patterns that hinder efficiency.
In this webinar, Qualitest's Performance Test Lead, Leandro Melendez, and Quali's CTO, Maya Ber Lerner, will discuss how environment automation can change the way teams approach quality and be the basis of a successful QA strategy.
As your organization goes through the application transformation journey, DevOps engineers are faced with difficult questions around the need to maintain security compliance and infrastructure costs under control while implementing full automation of your release process.
Join us and learn how JFrog and Quali combine forces to speed up the application release cycle and enforce governance and control. In particular, how Environment as a Service can help with security compliance, with a consistent blueprint throughout the value stream and cost control with built in automation and business-driven policies.
Only a few years ago, test automation was a "geeky nice to have," but it is now recognized as essential for continuous software delivery, according to Maya Ber Lerner, CIO at Quali, the test-environment-service provider. At the QA Financial Forum London on March 12th, Ber Lerner was presenting remotely from New York, explaining how financial firms can overcome the single major barrier that keeps them from optimizing the ROI from automation technologies: the lack of trust they have in their test environments.
Provisioning test environments is a time-consuming, complex and mostly manual process that takes the automation out of test automation, and often results in mis-configuration and incorrect data sets. To achieve continuous testing and successful automation at scale, Ber Lerner explains in the presentation how QA teams can access automated production-like environments they can trust and achieve true continuous testing across value stream.

Whilst some organizations believe that the SRE model can benefit DevOps teams, some prefer to embrace one or the other - even pitting the two methodologies up against each other.
Join us for episode 2 of Day-To-Day DevOps, where we take a closer look at why this may be, the challenges it causes, and what silver linings can emerge when both movements work together to enable automation and reliability.
Host Helen Beal, Chief Ambassador at the DevOps Institute, is joined this month by:
- Mark Rendell - Principal Director, Accenture
- Maya Ber Lerner - CTO, Quali
- Craig Pearson - Director, Creative Agile Partners
Check out the latest QualiFYI episode with Broadcom's Christine Bentsen, Head of Product Marketing of Continuous Testing, as she discusses how to alleviate bottlenecks using automated test environments to continuously improve quality and more. With host Arta Shita.

Application development is driving the digital transformation. For the online retailer, Resident, that meant the need to quickly develop, test, and release business critical applications in AWS cloud using a DevOps approach. However, Resident needed to accomplish all of this within budget, while they were facing rapid growth, distributed development teams, and complex back-end applications that supported revenue generation.
Watch this webinar to learn how Resident selected Quali’s Environment as a Service solution, CloudShell Colony, and AWS public cloud to:
>>Provide self-service application environments to globally distributed development teams
>>Control cloud costs with dynamic staging environments
>>Gain visibility into cloud resources for predictable growth

Monitoring is a core Ops/SRE responsibility. If you operate an environment, you need to monitor it—this is Ops 101. But when releasing faster, monitoring the continuous output of code and infrastructure changes grows more challenging.
Emerging technologies in AIOps and environment automation make it possible for Ops Engineers/SREs to take the practice to the next level; when paired together, they efficiently connect observability with DevOps—increasing speed without losing control.
Join Maya Ber Lerner, CTO at Quali, and Dror Mann, VP Product at Loom Systems, in this fireside chat and demo as they reveal strategies for:
-Connecting monitoring data to continuous delivery through Environment as a Service
-Using AI to intelligently interpret data
-Achieving stronger product reliability and accountability without slowing down innovation
