  • 5 Don'ts for Supporting Developers with Cloud Resources Oct 27 2021 4:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    Colin Fletcher and Alex Irizarry
    It’s no secret that supporting developer productivity requires a cultural shift—we’ve heard it in every webinar, thought-leadership session and DevOps podcast out there. Rarely will you hear real-world examples of how successful operations teams were able to boost developer productivity with cloud resources and it is even rarer still to hear about the, well, not-so-successful stories.

    In this session, industry veterans Colin Fletcher and Alex Irizarry reveal—with real-world examples—the common culture, people, process and technology mistakes they’ve seen organizations' make when it comes to delivering the cloud resources developers need to do their job.

    Join us for a fun—and not too long—conversation where they will:
    >Identify the top 5 things to avoid when supporting developers with cloud resources
    >Discuss how to recognize each “avoidance opportunity” before it’s too late
    >Share alternatives and options that bypass trouble spots
  • The Key to Maintaining Lab Continuity with a Distributed Workforce Recorded: Sep 28 2021 49 mins
    Roni Dover, Field CTO, Quali; Krishna Khandavilli, Product Strategy, Quali
    Over the past year-and-a-half, the Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we approach many aspects of our daily lives, especially the way we work. With so much of the workforce having gone remote, both employers and employees have had to adopt all new ways of approaching their day-to-day business. Shifting to a work-from-home model means more difficulty accessing labs for use cases like software testing, sales demos, training, and customer support.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how to accommodate managing lab environments for a distributed workforce through:
    >>Standardizing environment configurations via blueprints
    >>Self-service access to lab environments
    >>Role-based Access Controls (RBAC) and Single-sign On (SSO)
    >>Maintaining Governance
    >>Ensuring security protocols and compliance standards
    >>Controlling resource utilization
    >>Maintaining productivity

  • Getting it Right: Self-service in Cloud Automation Recorded: Aug 3 2021 47 mins
    Maya Ber Lerner, CTO, Quali
    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 review common implementations of self-service and on-demand infrastructure, as well as share best practices for choosing the right implementation.

  • Scaling Bottom-up DevOps Initiatives: Choose Your Tools Wisely Recorded: Jul 27 2021 13 mins
    Maya Ber Lerner, CTO, Quali
    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 hampers their initial promise and extinguishes 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.
  • How to QA Infrastructure Automation Recorded: Jul 20 2021 62 mins
    David Williams, Quali; Michael Giacometti, Qualitest
    Better quality. Faster releases. Lower costs. These principles drive innovation in the DevOps world. As a result, software testing is no longer a point function buried in the software delivery pipeline. It now plays a broader, increasingly critical role in how modern organizations deliver digital business services by ensuring change value is met, quality is delivered, and risk is governed from concept to business realization.

    However, to maintain quality across the accelerated software delivery lifecycle, complex infrastructure and effective use of testing tools need to be built, managed and made available to teams with diverse roles in geographically diverse clouds and testing environments.

    Infrastructure Automation tools can create, provision, maintain, and decommission critical environments throughout the software development lifecycle to manage IT infrastructure demands easily and effectively.

    During this webinar, David Williams, VP of Product Strategy at Quali, and Michael Giacometti, Solution Architect at Qualitest, will discuss:

    -How enterprise organizations scale and evolve their development test practices
    -How to achieve software development excellence
    -How enterprise organizations define their software delivery processes and measure them against business value

  • Why Your Test Automation is Failing and How to Achieve True Continuous Testing Recorded: May 12 2020 23 mins
    Maya Ber Lerner, CTO, Quali
    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.
