  • Overcome wait time, cost and inefficiency within test and dev to improve quality Recorded: Feb 6 2014 39 mins
    These days, every IT shop tries to be more agile and get to market as fast as possible. But most of the applications going to market are interconnected, complex and some components can reside in the Cloud. With today's interconnected / composite applications, a complete and realistic test environment is nearly impossible to stage. Without access to a reliable, high-fidelity test environment, testing is delayed or curtailed and businesses suffer.

    Join testing experts from EWE Telecommunications in a conversation about the realities of the constraints within test and development environments. They will also share how:
    • Continuous integration testing can improve quality
    • Service Virtualization can remove unnecessary costs and reduce project risk
  • Best Practices for Scaling Agility to the Enterprise level Recorded: Jan 14 2014 39 mins
    Agile practices have generally worked well in small teams and programs. However, agility is challenged when Enterprises have a mix of systems, different outsourcing models, and a demanding global release schedule. Enterprise agility needs to expand beyond the development phase, pushing into release and deployment, while diving deeper into the organization spanning not only development teams but also programs and portfolios. Enterprise Agile frameworks can provide solutions to address these challenges. In this webinar you will learn how to leverage these solutions across the IT Lifecycle and into control levels to truly enable business agility.

    You will learn about:

    • Enterprise Agile Manifesto
    • Best practices for scaling Agile at the team, program and portfolio levels
    • Industry standards for Enterprise Agile
    • Maturity model for Enterprise Agile
  • 3 key lessons for Agile continuous performance testing Recorded: Dec 11 2013 45 mins
    When software development is accelerating at increasing rates, the performance of apps – particularly mobile apps – and the servers which support them are more critical to success than ever.

    This Web Event provides key lessons learned from integrating performance into continuous delivery by invoking HP LoadRunner from a Jenkins server. You will learn how to:
    • Scope different performance risks to be covered during each run
    • Arrange for integrated parallel activity across the application lifecycle (unit, system, pre-production, etc.)
    • Analyze run history to identify payback from proactive efforts
  • Agile and Service Virtualization—coming together for faster software delivery Recorded: Dec 4 2013 34 mins
    In an effort to gain speed and agility, many companies have adopted composite application development approaches in addition to the rapid adoption of Agile methodology in development teams. But while Agile promises speed, it does not guarantee high quality – which is critical to achieving business goals. The combination of Agile development in faster iterations along with componentized service-based applications promises significant breakthroughs in velocity. But it also brings a whole new set of challenges through dependencies, causing significant project delays and failures as dependencies rapidly turn into constraints. The answer lies in a new software capability known as Service Virtualization.

    Attend this Web Event to learn about the concept and value of Service Virtualization and how it can eliminate constraints throughout the Agile application development process. You’ll hear about:

    • The Agile approach and the importance of test and development teamwork
    • What types of impediments and constraints emerge with Agile and composite application architecture
    • How to eliminate these constraints in test and development with Service Virtualization
    • The ROI of implementing Service Virtualization
  • Agile software delivery – get speed without sacrificing quality Recorded: Nov 20 2013 45 mins
