Balancing Agility and Control: The True Path to Continuous Delivery

Hans Jörgen Dekker, QUINT; Dave West, Tasktop; Toby Marsden, HP Software; Fil Zanasi, HP Software
Software is eating the world. It is almost impossible to deliver new business capabilities without significant software innovation. Software agility directly affects business capability. Software delivery is a key business process for most organizations. But for many companies, software delivery is poorly understood and is not treated as an integrated, visible business process. Governance and control directly compete with agile methods and improved release models. To navigate to the nirvana of business agility requires a different way of approaching the whole value chain of software delivery.

This debate will discuss the following:
•What is the nirvana of software delivery?
•What are the challenges to getting there?
•What is the reality of agile development?
•How does continuous delivery fit with agile?
•What is the future of Application Lifecycle Management?
•And, how do you get there from your current position?

Join moderator Hans Jörgen Dekker, Managing Consultant at QUINT and panelists:
•Dave West: former Research Director at Forrester Research and now Chief Product Officer at Tasktop;
•Toby Marsden: Director of Application Solutions and Strategy at HP Software;
•Fil Zanasi: Financial Services Market Specialist at HP Software.

    Service Virtualisation – Test Further. Test Faster. Test Better!

    Join us for a research based webinar led by Forrester, which uncovers and addresses the concerns of how to stay in step with the velocity of today’s application delivery.

    Today's applications are largely compositions representing business processes put in place to better serve the business. But as businesses rapidly change, the need to adopt more agile processes is growing, which in turn means that the supporting applications must also be flexible.

    For example did you know that:

    •close to 70% of IT leaders think that they need to increase overall automation to shorten release cycles?
    •over 58% of IT leaders see a clear need for more integration testing in 12-18 months for systems of engagement because of growing architecture complexity?
    •long testing cycles are seen as a huge impediment to shorter and more frequent releases?
