  • Kubernetes in the Cloud (Part 2) Jul 17 2019 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Michelle Tidwell, Program Director, IBM; Tom Clark, Distinguished Engineer; Matt Levan, Storage Solutions Architect
    As enterprises move to a hybrid multi-cloud world, they are faced with many challenges. Decisions surrounding what technologies to use is one, but they are also seeing a transformation in traditional IT roles. The storage admins are asked to be more cloud savvy while new roles of cloud admins are emerging to handle the complexities of deploying simple and efficient clouds. Meanwhile, both these roles are asked to ensure a self-service environment is architected so that application developers can get resources needed to develop cutting edge apps not in weeks, days or hours, but in minutes.

    In part one of this three part series, we covered the high level aspects of Kubernetes. This presentation will discuss key capabilities IT vendors are creating based on open source technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes to build self-service infrastructure to support hybrid multi-cloud deployments.We’ll cover:

    •Persistent storage and how to specify it
    •Ensuring application portability between Private and Public Clouds
    •Building a self-service infrastructure (Helm, Operators)
    •Selecting Block, File, Object (Traditional Storage, SDS)
  • [Panel] Building Applications in the Cloud: Best Practices Jul 9 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Panel of experts
    With an increase in the number of applications being deployed on the Cloud, so to have questions about the issues presented by this recent technology adoption.

    Join this panel of experts as they discuss the importance of getting to grips with cloud infrastructure, load variance and cloud services, and learn the key best practices that will ensure your strategy is a success.
  • Achieving Data Agility in a DevSecOps World Jun 20 2019 9:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Sanjeev Sharma, VP and Global Practice Director for Data Modernization, Delphix
    As organizations mature on their DevOps adoption journey, adopting Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) automation, and breaking down organizational silos, application delivery and infrastructure provisioning speed is being accelerated. The next challenge now being exposed is the lack of agility in delivering Data into non-production environments.

    Development and Testing require the availability of relevant data in the production-like Dev and Test environments on demand, to ensure rapid testing and validation of each Build. Data is however difficult to provision and deliver on demand. This results in Data Friction being the impediment to true ‘flow’ through application delivery pipelines. Other than the inherent cost and time it takes to provision and store data instances, there is also the risk that exponentially increases as more and more instances of Data are provisioned in multiple non-production environments.

    As Dev-Test teams deliver faster and leverage more environments across parallel development streams, the number of non-production Data instances is typically several orders of magnitude higher than Production instances, increasing the exposed surface area. The ask hence is to be able to provision and deliver production-like Data instances, on-demand, as, when and where Dev-test practitioners need them in non-prod environments, while securing the Data at the same time.

    In this session Sanjeev Sharma, VP and Global Practice Director for Data Modernization will discuss practices large enterprises need to adopt, across Process, Technology and People in order to be able to Provision, Deploy, Manage, Govern, and Secure Data in Application Delivery Pipelines, addressing Data Friction and Data Security challenges that may be impeding DevSecOps adoption.

  • SHIFT LEFT THEN SHIFT UP: Strengthening Your DevSecOps Posture Jun 20 2019 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Rani Osnat, VP of Product Marketing Aqua Security
    The concept of “shift left” engages security earlier in the development cycle of cloud-native applications, accelerating development while reducing risk. However, migrating to cloud-native environments also necessitates the security team to “shift up”, focusing on the application layer to account for the shared-service model and “thin OS” environments that are prevalent in these environments.

    Attend this webinar to learn why Shifting Up provides improved security and cost efficiency in cloud-native environments, including:

    - Kubernetes orchestrated applications
    - Containers running on VMs
    - Serverless containers (e.g., AWS Fargate and Azure Container Instances)
    - Serverless functions (e.g., AWS Lambda and Azure Functions)

    Daniel Breston, Technology Leadership Transformation Coach, Virtual Clarity
    Sounds easy this Digital Transformation thing. Everyone apparently is doing it. Save a bunch of money. Makes customers happy. Our organisation looks good in the press or on the stock market. Hey – we don’t even have to do it as we can outsource everything to someone else! Nirvana!

    Really? I mean REALLY? What percentage of these initiatives do not meet their expectations? What percentage of these initiatives instead make customers unhappy, or cause staff to leave or cost you money because you did not consider what these 2 words REALLY mean?

    Let’s discuss what Digital Transformation can mean to you in what I hope is an interactive session on language, leadership expectations, metrics, basic tools you need, challenges, outcomes and the impact on your people. This is not a technical session. This is a discussion for leaders at any level on how to best engage the new industrial movement of our time best known as Digital Transformation.

  • Improving DevOps Collaboration and Capturing Capex Value Jun 18 2019 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Chris Bland, CEO, BDQ
    We will talk about some of the lessons learned with our customers, and techniques that can be used with Atlassian products and Apps, to improve DevOps collaboration. We discuss a recent implementation using Tempo Timesheets, whereby a large customer needed to record the time of engineers as painlessly as possible, in order to accurately capture their capital expenditure.

    We will then describe how silos can be broken down using the Atlassian products, from requirements, through to testing, and ultimately customer service, using Confluence, Jira Software, Zephyr for Jira, and Jira Service Desk.

    We will also show how a product like Sonatype/Nexus can be added into the CI/CD pipeline, reducing exposure to vulnerabilities from open source libraries, whilst still allowing developers to work at the same speed.

    Using tools effectively will help underpin DevOps collaboration. DevOps is all about culture – but using tools provides a framework for change.

  • A Process for Running Robust and Empowered DevOps at Scale Jun 18 2019 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Mark Debney, DevOps Director at 6point6
    The first step in DevOps implementation at scale involves building a solid foundation of tooling, automation, architecture and testing to provide a standardised level of consistency for development teams to build upon. But where to from here?

    How do we move from dedicated DevOps engineering teams to a robust DevOps capability ingrained within multi-disciplinary teams?

    What steps can we put in place to ensure DevOps works effectively at scale?

    When we acknowledge that scaling DevOps is really about strengthening DevOps capabilities within development teams, we can identify which capabilities are core to our delivery process, how we can strengthen and share these effectively across the wider development practice and which capabilities, if any, are better suited to sit outside of a development team when running at scale.

    Join the 6point6 DevOps Director, Mark Debney, as he sets out the process for running robust and empowered DevOps at scale.

  • What Got Us Here Won’t Get Us There – A Story of Transformations Jun 18 2019 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Mirco Hering, Global DevOps Lead, Accenture
    As they say, nothing is more dangerous than using yesterday’s logic for today’s problems, yet we are still working in our organisations with mental models that are inspired by manufacturing. You can see artifacts of it even in the language we use: people are resources and they work in development factories. If we are surprised why our transformations are not progressing as fast as we hoped when Agile took the stage, then looking to these old mental models provides part of the answer.

    In this talk I will explain from practical experience in my work, how the old models still influence us every day and how we can break away from them and learn new models. I will give positive and negative examples from real projects to show that it is normal to experience failures and how to course correct from the lessons such failures teach us.

    I will also provide pragmatic steps that everyone can take in their own organisations that don’t rely on buying new tools or following specific methods. Charting your own course starts with understanding where the problem is and understanding where our mental models let us down is part of that journey.

  • How We Approached Evaluation of ALM Octane and Now Run Agile Testing Recorded: May 16 2019 60 mins
    Gerd Fladrich, Risang Sidik
    This webinar is brought to you by the Vivit Testing Quality ALM Special Interest Group (SIG).

    Join this webinar that will demonstrate how BNP Paribas started and performed evaluation of ALM Octane and is now using the tool to run complete agile testing lifecycles. The testing lifecycle will be presented as a live demo that follows Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) methodology and uses Gherkin notation for defining test suites.

    The testing lifecycle starts with definition of requirements and user stories, heavily builds on test automation and advanced reporting, manages and synchronizes defects across tools, and feeds learnings from testing back into the requirements. It uses an integrated development and testing infrastructure including products like Confluence, Jira, Micro Focus ALM, Micro Focus ALM Octane, Jenkins, GIT, Cucumber, IntelliJ, TestCafe, and others.

    BNP Paribas’s journey with agile test automation using ALM Octane started in 2017. The webinar presents in a nutshell how evaluation of ALM Octane was approached and conducted. It explains how new methods were introduced with the objective to leverage full tool functionality. The initiative has soon helped to increase testing efficiency and created important business value.

    Webinar participants will learn:

    • How BNP Paribas has conducted evaluation of ALM Octane
    • Why ALM Octane is much more than just a successor of ALM/Quality Center
    • How ALM Octane eases flexible management of its entire surrounding tool chain
    • Why methodology like BDD shall precede tools, and not vice versa
    • How Gherkin establishes a common language for the entire agile development lifecycle that helps integrating business, development, and testing
    • How to use ALM Octane for pipeline management, reporting, defect synchronization, import of performance testing and BPT results, integration of in-sprint testing etc.
