Best Practice Automation for Change, Configuration and Release Management

The practice of implementing “Service Transition” processes such as Change, Release & Configuration Management poses many questions to those trying to make it all work together. One of the main questions confronted by many is “How can I get these all to work together?”

As part of this discussion we will try to provide clarity and address some of the daunting questions faced by many, as well as take a look at how Best Practice Automation can help you achieve a higher level of infrastructure control resulting in improved service quality and at a lower cost.

  • From Cost Center to Profit Center May 16 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Phyllis Drucker - Consultant, Linium
    Cloud…outsourcing…Platform as a Service…all of these could make IT irrelevant, so how do you prevent this? By providing value every day and by running IT as a Business. Great catch-phrase, but what does it mean? In a nutshell: knowing the services IT is providing, what they cost to operate and whether they provide value, and by staying on the cutting edge of technology even with todays fast pace of change, so that the business you support remains competitive. This webinar addresses the basic building blocks you need to run like a business: defining services and offerings, layering in financial management and charge-backs/show-backs so you understand the costs of these offerings and how to pull it all together in a way that helps you run as a business does, even if it’s only on paper.

    We have been saying 'people are our greatest asset' for eons. But have we really demonstrated it?

    When organisations are undergoing change that is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous and we need people to change at a velocity never known before, putting people first is an imperative.

    If organisations don't do this they will very quickly cease to be relevant in this world of increasing disruption.

  • SIG Talk: Quality and Testing 5 - Proven Practices Recorded: Apr 17 2018 56 mins
    Mark Ford, Arvind Namasivayam
    Shown below is an outline of the agenda and topics:

    Speaker: Mark Ford
    Integrate your SDLC Tools Quickly and Easily with Tasktop Hub: Integrating your Micro Focus tools with other SDLC tools can bridge gaps and facilitate far better communication paths than emails and excel sheets alone. Sure, it would be great to have everyone under the same umbrella, but that’s not always the reality we live in. So why not allow other teams to work on the same Micro Focus ALM Requirement, Test, or Defect from their own SDLC tool? I’ll show you how you can set up a basic Defect synchronization between Micro Focus ALM and Atlassian JIRA for example in as little as 5 minutes using a product from Micro Focus partner Tasktop called Tasktop Hub
    .
    Speaker: Arvind Namasivayam
    Tips and Tricks of Installing, Administering and Using Micro Focus Mobile Center: In this segment you will be introduced to a quick overview on Micro Focus Mobile Center. Arvind will explain some o the challenges that he faced while installing the tool. He will also share valuable tips and tricks on effectively implementing and using Micro Focus Mobile Center.

  • Accelerate High-Quality App Delivery with the Micro Focus DevOps Suite Recorded: Mar 28 2018 55 mins
    David Landsberg, Malcolm Isaacs, Ayal Cohen
    According to the 2017-18 World Quality Report, 88% of companies surveyed are using or experimenting with DevOps, and that number is growing. Making the transformation is not easy, and it’s made even more complicated by tools that aren’t integrated with each other, do not communicate with each other, and do not offer end-to-end visibility into and collaboration across the DevOps pipeline.

    Micro Focus recently introduced their DevOps Suite, consisting of best-of-breed lifecycle management (ALM Octane), functional and performance testing (StormRunner Functional and StormRunner Load), and production monitoring (AppPulse) tools.

    Attend this webinar to hear about the DevOps Suite, and how it can help your team accelerate application delivery at high quality and scale. We’ll also show you an end-to-end demo of the products. Here is what you will learn:

    • Challenges facing organizations making an agile or DevOps transformation today
    • Why it’s critical for organizations to have DevOps tools that share data and insights with each other as well as being tightly integrated with the pipeline
    • How the Micro Focus DevOps Suite provides you with lifecycle and
    pipeline management, continuous functional and performance testing
    from the cloud, and production monitoring for continuous assessment

  • SIG Talk: IT Operations 1 - ITSMA/ Hybrid Cloud Management Recorded: Mar 15 2018 61 mins
    Eric Krueger, David Angradi
    Vivit launches its first ever IT Operation Management (ITOM) SIG Talk event. We have 3 speakers who will give you insights in the ITSMA Containers Concept and migration into the Hybrid Cloud. They will share their knowledge and expertise and provide thought-provoking and actionable content.

    Shown below is an outline of the agenda and topics:

    •Speaker: Eric Krueger
    Everything you need to know about the Micro Focus ITSMA Containers Concept: Containers are here and they are the best way to deploy, maintain and upgrade software. What are containers? How are they deployed? How is the software different on containers than traditional platforms? Why did HPE/Micro Focus decide on a containerization approach to their ITSM suite? Tune in and find out why containers are the deployment method of the future and how to transition your existing ITSM suite from your Linux or Windows environment to a Containerized environment.

    •Speakers: David Angradi
    A “real” migration into the Hybrid Cloud (HCM, PlateSpin, and Cloud Assess): The Hybrid cloud has either been a unicorn (something beautiful but not real) or a boogey man (something to prevent disruption) in our ecosystem for the last several years. In marketing and static architectures, we have seen a lot of promises, but very little actual progress.

    Hybrid Cloud is becoming more important everyday as nearly all companies are in (or will be in) the public cloud but many of these same companies ‘know’ that they cannot be 100% public. So, the problem we are all trying to solve is how can we provide all the features, functions and automations.

    What will be covered:

    •Building and migrating existing workloads to a Hybrid cloud
    •Use Cloud Assess product to discover and right size
    •Plate spin to move – migrate – in automation
    •Use HCM product for day-to-day management, automation and ITSM control
