  • 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

  • Shift Left Testing Mar 12 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In the past, most traditional test automation focused on the UI and not the back-end. This was a leftover mindset from the days of "just throw it over the wall”. With the current shift in how teams are organized, the skillset for testing is evolving. Dev/Ops, continuous delivery, mobile, cloud and the Internet of Things is forcing a rapid pace of development. Now, QA professionals and business analysts are more ingrained in the overall development process from start to finish. Now that software development for different platforms are using a “shift-left” approach (which involves moving testing to earlier in the software development lifecycle), it is requiring test automation engineers to enhance their technical skills.

    Join Clint Sprauve, Senior Product Marketing Manager for HP Functional Testing, and learn about:

    • API and web services testing early in the development lifecycle
    • How to shift-left with non-technical testers

  • Agile Planning with HP Project Portfolio Management and Agile Manager Recorded: Jan 30 2015 62 mins
    What is the real challenge in aligning your agile development with the strategic objectives of the business?

    Brian McQuillan, Alan Wendt and Russ King discuss the challenge organizations face that move to Agile Development and then have difficulty aligning with the strategic objectives of the business. Often this challenge impedes the IT organization in their ability to deliver business objectives from the IT perspective. When your organization shifts to Agile you want to allow development organizations to be flexible in how they move to Agile delivery, and yet you still need to see the big picture of how you’re doing aligning goals with the business.

    HP’s comprehensive approach to managing multiple types of projects within an organization, whether traditional, agile or other project management methodologies, is brought to fruition with the combination of HP Agile Manager and Project Portfolio Manager (PPM). On the PPM side, you can bring the capabilities to drive business objectives by building through proposals and funded projects, tying that together with the progress of your agile teams within Agile Manager. HP’s Agile Manager and PPM allow your organization to understand project costs and project health, helping you determine where and how you spend your money on resources and budget allocations.

  • The ABCs of service virtualization Recorded: Sep 9 2014 36 mins
    Service virtualization is software that simulates a service’s behavior in a production environment. With service virtualization, you can keep to your development and testing schedule even when you can’t develop or test the “real” versions of applications, dependent systems, and services. So where do companies typically begin with service virtualization? Knowing the ABCs will help you and your teams plan for the best rate of adoption at your organization. Even if you have thousands of back-end systems and services, you can virtualize all the services and also model the network and application performance. By having the ability to create and use a simulated model of unavailable or constrained services, your testers can lower the time required for test case, test data preparation, API, performance, integration, and complete end-to-end testing.

    In this webcast, you will learn how to:
    • Get started with service virtualization
    • Develop and test faster by virtualizing constrained application components
    • Overcome common barriers like services still under development, limited capacity, third-party access, and port restrictions
    • Have faster release cycles
    • Identify defects earlier when they are cheaper and easier to fix
  • Scale agile development practices across the enterprise to attain peak agility Recorded: Aug 27 2014 33 mins
