Balancing Agility and Control: The True Path to Continuous Delivery

Manage webcast
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.

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.

  • Performance Testing is Dead; Long Live Performance Engineering Recorded: Mar 17 2015 45 mins
    Matthew Brady, EMEA HP Software
    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 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.

    •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?
