  • The ROI numbers don’t lie. Service virtualization technology is critical to the success of a vibrant application economy. That’s the conclusion from voke, Inc. on their research of 500 companies across the globe. Organizations using service virtualization experience reduced defects and software lifecycles, and increased customer satisfaction.

    Specific ROI data from companies surveyed include:
    •46% reported a 41% or greater reduction in TOTAL defects
    •More than one-third reduced test cycle times by 50% or more
    •36% reported a 41% or greater reduction in production defects
    •More than 25% at least doubled test execution rates

    Hear service virtualization should be a cornerstone of testing automation to remove the barrier to releasing software faster and with greater quality.

    voke, Inc., will review the research showing how service virtualization is an essential technology with a strong and proven ROI used to deliver software that drives optimal business outcomes and removes constraints throughout the software delivery lifecycle.
  • The answer is YES! The ‘I’ in team doesn’t represent one single person in the apps development plan, rather it highlights the transformation of the once silo’d teams who support specific functions within the app lifecycle. The straight line of the ‘I’ symbolizes the one team approach that is making DevOps successful. Operations people are showing up in the testing phase of the application and the apps people are doing some measures and monitoring in operations. Recently, TechTarget named DevOps as one of six major data center trends for 2015. DevOps is no longer a new way to think about transformation; it is the ONLY way to bring together the silos that weigh down your business’ bottom line.

    Join our lively panel discussion with DevOps industry experts Paul Muller and Damon Edwards as they discuss:

    Common problems in traditional DevOps teams
    How these teams have changed to truly transform and become innovators
    How you can apply these ideas to your business to boost your bottom line
  • Many organizations have not been able to demonstrate that they have effective compliance management. In this session Stu Henderson describes failed attempts at compliance management, the factors causing the failures, and what you can do to develop effective compliance management. Recommendations will address relevant changes in technology, regulation, and tools, as well as organizational and procedural issues. Stu's practical recommendations are based on over a decade of observing real-life mainframe security practices, and the factors blocking their effectiveness. If you are a CISO, mainframe auditor, or the person responsible for regulatory compliance, you will learn useful steps you can take to improve the quality of your compliance and your ability to demonstrate it!
