  • The State of Software Delivery Management: Exploring The Future of SDM Recorded: Oct 7 2020 58 mins
    Mitchell Ashley, CEO and Managing Analyst, Accelerated Strategies Group (ASG)
    Truly disruptive organizations understand that agile software delivery pipelines are at the heart of their digital transformation. However, while some organizations may understand this in theory, in practice the situation looks very different for most.

    This research set assesses the current state of Software Delivery Management (SDM) and examines the impact of SDM adoption in the enterprise. The research consists of survey data and one-on-one interviews with key industry leaders and experts to gather and further refine the data on which this report is based.

    In this talk, ASG CEO Mitch Ashley will share data from the research and show how organizations with mature SDM strategies are better able to quantify both the cost of delivery and the cost of delays in delivery. Additionally, the research will show why organizations are enjoying an improved ability to tie software features and their delivery to business impact and customer value. This presentation will also breakdown how an SDM strategy addresses the gaps and inefficiencies in an organization’s ability to deliver software, based on three key capabilities that help organizations increase their software delivery efficiency and effectiveness.

    Top takeaways from this presentation include:

    • Survey data and research to share the current state of software delivery management
    • An understanding of what it takes to successfully execute a digital transformation strategy and why it’s imperative that organizations adopt SDM capabilities
    • Three capabilities to help increase software delivery efficiency, including:
    o Quantifying the impact of investment in software delivery;
    o The capability of software delivery teams to communicate and collaborate;
    o End-to-end visibility into the value flow of software delivery streams

  • DevOps for Apps to accelerate Industry 4.0 and AI@Edge Recorded: Oct 7 2020 51 mins
    Muralidhar Goparaju, Chief Executive Officer, AmberFlux EdgeAI Private Limited
    As we look to momentous changes unleashed by technological advances like 5G, AI, Deep Learning/Machine Learning, AI Accelerator Chips, etc., supported by social changes leading to 9-to-5 jobs taking newer meanings with WFH with higher autonomy for business users. DevOps provides an opportunity for enterprises leapfrog to Industry 4.0 by leveraging their internal data, social media data and finding effective ways to analyze, learn, and inferencing the data from the millions of edge devices to give business users the power to take autonomous decisions within real-time and meet the regulatory and risk management requirements.

    Traditional App Dev models that needed elaborate software lifecycle and testing, and an extended roll-out plan, will pose severe challenges in Industry 4.0, and it requires real-time updates rolled out to all users. The traditional models that relied on IT development, Implementation and Processes are now blurred as business users rely more on AI to perform many of the tasks being performed by business process organizations.

    To achieve Industry 4.0, enterprises need to critically relook at their internal processes and work towards leveraging AI for many of the tasks that are being done manually today, and then push the inferencing from these AI tools to the end business users. Enterprises would need to rapidly push these inferences from AI tools to the end-users and at the same time keep constantly updating their learning, analysis and inferences on real-time basis from the millions of data generators from devices, users, and social media to ensure that the users always have most current AI inference on their devices. All these updates, including Cloud based machine learning, analysis and AI inferencing and all the business users devices (like mobile, laptops, tablets, AR/VR, wearables, etc., ) need to happen in real-time.
  • No Time to Test Recorded: Oct 7 2020 42 mins
    Nick Denning, CEO, Diegesis Limited
    “No Time to Test” – an approach to starting the testing journey with people who think module testing is all you have to do.



    You are called in by a development manager who is suffering because of crashes in the system causing outages at critical times and significant revenue losses. They know they have to do something about testing but doesn’t know how to get started or obtain buy in. The situation is that the system is huge and complex. To properly scope out a full functional and regression test plan might take years. At the same time the developers are not interested, providing the blame cannot be pinned on them.



    The point of this session is to discuss how to present a strategy that will allow you to make a realistic start without promising the undeliverable.
  • Don’t miss the train! Test automation is finally growing up. Recorded: Oct 7 2020 65 mins
    Marcel Veselka, Visionary, Tesena;
    The search for more efficient, quicker and cheaper testing has been ongoing for a long time. In the past test automation was frequently presented as the solution to this problem. These days it has become at least a small part of any modern software testing process. However, in the next four years the test automation market will grow 2.3 fold to over 25 billion USD.
    But it’s not only the size of test automation that is growing, it’s also increasing in maturity. It is now better that ever before as the tools are getting to grow more advanced and the practices more mature.
    We will share with you how test automation market is changing, what are the current hot trends, and what new opportunities these will bring to us. Some of the most interesting innovations relate to improving scope selection, execution and maintenance of the automated test pack, powered by AI and ML.
    This talk will give a high-level, understandable introduction to what’s happening and is about to happen in test automation. The target audience is testers, developers and technical resources.
  • The Goldilocks Problem of Software Delivery Recorded: Oct 6 2020 63 mins
    Anders Wallgren, VP of Tech Strategy, CloudBees
    Over the last 15 years, organizations have had difficulty with the entire software delivery process, but two artifacts in particular became a recurring problem. The problem stems from the Goldilocks principle: one of these artifacts is much too big to overcome efficiently, and one of them is much too small to make a significant impact, so we need to find the one that is just right.

    So what artifact is “just right?” As the user, what we really care about are the Features: the stuff we use and interact with all the time to make our daily lives better. However, the systems we have today haven't advanced to the point where software features are the nearest proxy for customer value. In other words, the feature must be at the forefront of the UI.

    In this talk, I will share why features are the proxy for value and explore the different levels of abstraction for the “just right” aspect of a Feature in order to shift people's mindset from thinking in terms of Builds or Releases, to thinking in terms of the customer and business value. I will share tactics to address the Goldilocks problem and how to have these discussions at the right level of the software in order to make prioritizations, decisions, and discoveries.

    What Attendees Will Learn:

    A different perspective about software delivery, which will help them make better decisions about which features to pursue and builds/releases to postpone.

    Learn why features are the future and how they are the perfect middle-ground between individual builds and major releases.

    How to ultimately break free from the Goldilocks problem of software delivery.

  • DevSecOps – Ensuring built-in-Security in an evolved DevOps landscape Recorded: Oct 6 2020 67 mins
    Sesh Murthy, Cloud Raxak CTO and Co-Founder; Tarun Krishnamurthy Managing Partner, Anzen Technology Partners
    DevSecOps extends DevOps, in that everyone in the software development life cycle is responsible
    for security bringing operations and development together with security functions. DevSecOps
    embeds security in every part of the development and operations processes. It is about automating
    core security tasks by embedding security controls and processes early in the DevOps workflow
    (rather than being bolted on at the end). For example, this could be the case when migrating to
    microservices, building out a CI/CD pipeline, compliance automation or simply testing cloud
    infrastructure. It is about getting security back into the lifecycle, or as it has been described: ‘shifting security left’.

    Integrating security into DevOps to deliver DevSecOps requires new mindsets, processes, and tools.
    Starting with continual Risk Assessment, Security and Risk Management leaders need to adhere to
    the collaborative, agile nature of DevOps to be seamless and transparent in the development
    process, making security as silent, encompassing, and seamless as possible.

    How to get a business to approach built-in security, from the beginning and continually:
    1. By establishing a security and data privacy strategy – a Security Program spanning people, process, products with Risk Assessment and Policies.
    2. Integrating Data Protection, Secure Coding and Testing practices within the engineering
    lifecycle.
    3. Leveraging automation to integrate security into the DevOps & CI/CD pipeline – from code scanners through to continuous security configuration management and remediation – in Dev, Testing, Staging, Production environments.
    4. Finally, staying abreast of practices, regulations, auditing and remaining certified, in true intent and spirit.

  • Rethinking Test Automation Recorded: Oct 6 2020 59 mins
    Paul Gerrard, Principal, Gerrard Consulting
    Test (execution) automation has been a goal since the earliest programs were written. The mechanics of automated tests have evolved with the technology used to build software, but the fundamental problems of test automation have not changed. Establishing a consistent environment, creating integral and re-usable test data, handling genuine failures, false negatives (and positives), tear-down, and clean-up. These are well-understood challenges. Developers and testers battle with flaky environments, test frameworks, and buggy software under test much the same way they always did. There is little debate about these technical or logistical matters.

    The use of unit test frameworks to test low-level components and integration is well-understood and usually most effective. But where the user interface is graphical and/or where tests of larger, integrated systems are required, test automation is more challenging. These tests tend to be longer, slower, and more complex and consequently, they are harder to write, debug, and maintain. These tests also run relatively slowly. All in all, long-winded, complex tests are flaky and far less efficient and economic. Two models dominate people’s thinking in this area – the four-quadrant model and the test automation pyramid. They have some value, but practitioners and managers need something better to guide their thinking.

    This is the “state of automation” and has been for many years.

    In this talk, Paul sets out a way of thinking about testing and test automation that helps to answer the strategic questions: What does test automation really do for us? When and how is automation the right choice? How do we justify automation? Can automation replace testers? What new tools and skills do we need to implement automation in the future?

  • AI and Machine Learning in a Selenium World Recorded: Apr 22 2020 49 mins
    Mike Wagner, Test Architect and Principal Consultant for tap|QA
    Many testing teams today use Selenium for their automation needs and rightfully so, Selenium allows for cross browser and mobile support, it’s free and has a large open source community behind it.

    Regardless of its feature set, Selenium and test automation in general has its own list of pain points like test maintenance and test coverage.
    These pain points can have a large impact on testing metrics depending on the test architecture used and the design patterns being followed.

    To address these pain points a team can utilize areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) via open source libraries.
    This enables the tests to find their own elements and attempt every possible combination of test cases, which a tester could then store, rerun, and iterate on.
    This approach effectively gives Selenium a brain in the form of models and actions.

    Join Mike Wagner, Test Architect and Principal Consultant for tap|QA as he leads this informative session for teams interested in integrating Artificial Intelligence into their existing Selenium framework.

    Takeaways: Understanding of the different areas of Machine Learning/AI with an emphasis on:
    * Convolutional Neural Networks (How they apply to element selection)
    * Reinforcement Learning (How it applies to test coverage)
    Approach for implementing Convolutional Neural Networks and Reinforcement Learning into an existing Selenium framework.
    * Introduction to top open source libraries related to Machine Learning
Trends and insights for developing apps and maintaining service
The webcasts in this channel will highlight trends and best practices for the application development lifecycle as well as how to make sure your application maintain a steady level of service.
