With Agile and DevOps practices in the forefront, the approach to the software development lifecycle demands a constant shift-left/right. It’s no secret that release cycles are accelerating. But how do you keep pace with the demands for faster, better, more complete testing?
Agile and DevOps testing teams need to:
• Collaborate to accelerate test design and maintenance
• Share the same IDEs, tools and templates
• Integrate with other testing processes and open technologies for continuous delivery
To achieve this you need a solution specifically built for continuous testing and continuous integration.
HPE Lean Functional Testing (LeanFT) is a powerful and lightweight tool that is perfect for developers, testers and automation engineers who practice Agile and DevOps. This web event will deep dive on the drivers for migrating to LeanFT, and challenges that you would encounter when implementing this transformation from a people, process and technology standpoint in the context of your current organization. It will also decipher the secret sauce to take a systematic approach to drive transformation (re-engineer process, people and technology) on your current automation initiative.
As business demands faster delivery of quality applications, the design, development, testing, and production teams need to work collaboratively, smarter, and faster to remove bottlenecks in the software delivery cycle. In the world of DevOps, it is important for each team to work beyond their comfort zones to adopt new processes, new cultures, and new tools to drive the transformation across the enterprise and make an impact on the business.
In this web event, we will examine what challenges traditional “dev/test” teams face in moving faster and how they can start to remove these challenges.

In an age where we have billions of things connected, streaming media and on-demand business platforms, network traffic is growing at an unprecedented and exponential rate. Do you know how the network affects your app and website performance? Will your customers “hang in there” while your page is loading, so they can complete their purchase? And do you know what part of the code is really causing the "hang up”?
HPE Network Virtualization emulates real network behavior so you can validate and test applications to ensure that there are no failures in production and user experience will be above par after deployment. It also provides optimization recommendations on a code level for immediate remediation of issues and bottlenecks.
Join us on this web event to learn more about Network Virtualization and how it can ensure stellar app performance, satisfied customers, and a growing business.
Today’s IT environment is one of complexity – applications need to change rapidly to keep up with rising user expectations. There’s a multitude of devices, operating systems and app versions for IT to keep up with. And when something goes wrong?
The worst way to monitor performance and stability is to wait for users to complain – by then they will abandon your app.
Recent surveys find that 61% of App & Ops teams lack APM solutions featuring user experience dashboards – they lack the end-to-end visibility from the user action, to the network, to the line of code.
IT operations require a central view into their applications and infrastructure to be able to react fast to app performance and stability issues. HPE Operations Bridge brings everything together in a single-pane-of-glass to consolidate events and data from multiple disparate sources. But do the events feeds of your Operations Dashboard give you a good sense for how users are experiencing your apps and services?
During this Webinar, you’ll learn from user experience and performance monitoring experts how IT Ops can maintain a single-pane-of-glass for all applications within the organization whether Web, Mobile, desktop or SaaS apps. By integrating HPE AppPulse with HPE Operations Bridge, IT Ops can collaborate with apps teams to act quickly to resolve business critical events, and improve user experience.

For financial services firms eager to migrate to the cloud, security and compliance requirements can pose a challenge. Personally identifiable information (PII) and non-public information (NPI) is often entrusted to financial services orgs with the expectation that access be limited, that the data be encrypted, and that activity involving that sensitive information be monitored. In fact, mandates including GLBA and PCI DSS require that firms maintain control over both data residency and privacy, capabilities that are not the focus for most cloud app vendors.
In this webinar, we'll discuss the essential components of a complete cloud security strategy and the tools that can help protect financial data in any cloud app. Learn how Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) implement full-strength encryption for data-at-rest in Salesforce, provide contextual access controls, apply content-aware DLP to sensitive customer data, and more.

Meetings are where ideas are exchanged, tasks are assigned, commitments are made, and brains are stormed. These days they are not defined by where people are, but how they’re connected. With the right devices, people have the freedom to interact with colleagues remotely – without any barriers to communication.
Unfortunately, many business meetings are badly organised and poorly run. They can also consume a great deal of time. According to a recent Plantronics survey, 40% of companies spend between 11 and 30 hours a week in meetings. That’s without taking into consideration time spent preparing for meetings and following up afterwards. Time can even be lost as a result of technical difficulties or connection issues.
Besides wasted time, there are other costs companies should consider: the cost of hiring a meeting space; the cost of travel and supplies; and the cost of purchasing food, etc. Given these facts, it is hardly surprising that more and more companies are having virtual meetings using web and video conferencing facilities. With access to high-speed internet, cloud-based collaboration services, mobile technology, and advanced audio equipment, people can connect to each other at any time.
However, a meeting is a meeting and many of the problems that afflict face-to-face meetings can carry over into the virtual world: lack of an agenda, domineering personalities, timewasters, no ownership of the issues and the rest.
During this web seminar we will be taking a sideways look at this occasionally loved (but mostly loathed) institution and will look at ways that meetings can be improved. We will also investigate why virtual meetings are becoming an increasingly popular option and find out why some companies are still reluctant to carry out meetings using web and video conferencing technology.
