Balancing Agility and Control: The True Path to Continuous Delivery
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.

What does “high availability” mean in practical terms? This webinar will detail what it takes to make your Subversion deployment highly available, including what you’ll need and some of the trade-offs to expect.
Hygienic design, regulations & compliances are increasing dramatically in the Food & Beverage market. Consequently, the questions raised are: how can you ensure food safety? How does Hygienic Design support the cleanability & Total Cost of Ownership of your plant? And with a practical example: What does a perfect flowmeter for liquids look like?
As well as speakers from Bürkert, this webinar features presentations from Hein Timmerman of Diversey-Sealed Air & Patrick Wouters of Cargill. Both are members of the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group, EHEDG.
Patrick will discuss Cargill’s overall goal to provide high quality, safe food, every time, everywhere; to this end, hygienic design is an important pre-requisite. This accounts for the choice of flow meters. Although hygienic design is a critical element, it is more important to have a correct measurement of the flow. This control point is of utmost importance, to ensure that specified functionality is achieved & food safety & product quality is ensured.
Hein will discuss Sealed Air’s Value Added Services on cleaning applications & cleaning validations, which includes remote monitoring tools & software platforms to support their end customers’ requirements for food safety & Total Cost of Ownership.
Bürkert’s John van Loon will discuss their new technology, FLOWave. This answers the hygiene issues other systems could face, by employing surface acoustic waves in a stainless steel tube. As such FLOWave allows a flow measurement of liquids without any parts within the tube. Current methods in industrial flow measurement are mainly based on moving parts like paddle wheels or rigid fixtures such as a bluff body in the measurement tube. These flow metering systems have their specific weaknesses, limiting their range of applications. The measuring task must be fulfilled, reliably, throughout the entire life cycle of the device. Also, the daily operative handling effort should remain within reasonable limits.

One very big challenge we have in IT is “what is the big picture”. We hear so much about technological advances and trends like cloud and the internet of things that many organisations become confused and seem to think that these are the big picture – but they are not! These are simply different types of ways IT can be delivered and technological advances.
So why is this “big picture” so elusive? If you think about it most IT people are quite obsessed with IT. It’s their job after all. IT advances seem to come thick and fast resulting in yet another project, yet another new thing to deliver, and yet another set of problems and issues to resolve. So it’s not really a shock to see that IT people can become easily engrossed in technology and not focused on “the big picture”.
Does a big picture actually exist? Well yes, as at last there is a Reference Architecture designed specifically for running the business of IT which utilises fundamental concepts such as viewing IT as a value chain, supported by value stream. This is called IT4IT™ and it has been produced by The OpenGroup http://www.opengroup.org/IT4IT
So how can the big picture help with Continual Service Improvement? Well, at last we have an overarching architecture which we can use to drive improvements focused on maximising value back to the business, and not just improving IT for the sake of it! This also allows organisations to identify small incremental steps that are more manageable and achievable for them to deliver whilst gradually moving closer to the “big picture”.
This session will introduce IT4IT™ and give some practical examples of how it can be used within the context of Continual Service Improvement
Between April and July of 2015, Gatepoint Research invited selected European executives to participate in a survey themed Enterprise Software Security Strategies. 71% of those surveyed report being very or critically concerned with application-related security and yet an astonishing 76% has not deployed application security testing solutions to help address the problem. This webinar will review the results of the survey in detail and show how you can address the top challenges identified. It will give practical steps that you can take to implement a comprehensive application security program that ensure that all applications are tested for security vulnerabilities prior to release. It will also discuss how, over time, you can mature this program and implement a full Secure Software Development Life-cycle to address the problem at source.

Cloud computing is all about improving agility and efficiency for organisations but the focus is often on the speed to provision infrastructure and services. But what about all the ongoing management and maintenance processes that go with it? If you are going to improve the deployment of services using public or private cloud it is important to look at how you improve the efficiency of the processes around it.
Learn how process automation technology can help you automate common tasks and processes to improve the speed of delivery, improve the quality of services and take out cost.
The drive to agile development, faster delivery and DevOps has resulted in a major reduction in the scope and frequency of performance testing, primarily due to the need to reduce cycle times, and the difficulty of executing large scale tests earlier in the process. This has also led to a proliferation of test technologies selected by individual projects to cover only their specific needs, causing reduced test case reuse and inconsistency in results.
Reduced delivery times, instant and ubiquitous user feedback and reduced testing is a potentially toxic combination for organizations.
Performance Engineering is the new discipline of smarter, more flexible testing executed earlier in the process, delivering actionable and repeatable results including accurate performance data enabling issues to be addressed faster and at lower cost. Performance Engineering is not about a specific technology or product, but it is about reducing rework, maximizing automation and increasing feedback.
Join this webinar to learn more about Performance Engineering and how HP’s Performance Engineering solutions can help you on the path towards continuous business feedback and improvement, built-in and automated performance, optimized applications for business and customer value, and collaborative and interactive teams focused on quality.
Join us for this webinar to learn how HP customers use automation to become more efficient, reduce errors, improve quality and become more responsive to business requirements. In this webinar we will focus on areas where our customers have gained the greatest benefit from automation such as incident resolution; server lifecycle management and user lifecycle management. We will also look at the process organisations take to implement automation technology and drive change in their businesses and where they were able to demonstrate strong return on investment.
