5 Steps to More Effective QA Automation in a DevOps Environment

DevOps, and its predecessor Agile development, provide a gateway to the best practice of “find and fix early.” However, allocating sufficient time and resources to thoroughly test your enterprise applications is a continual challenge – given the frequency and volume of change. With resource constraints and the limitations of today’s existing tools, many business-critical applications go minimally tested while the quality of these applications is fundamental to the business’ success.

In this session we’ll discuss 5 key strategies for improving QA and Delivery within a DevOps environment. Learn how to leverage advanced data-driven testing to dynamically validate your applications, while allowing you to easily and rapidly create and maintain your functional tests.

We’ll cover in-depth the features and integration of scriptless test automation to enable:

Broad Usability – reduce the time it takes to create and maintain tests, simplifying test development for the entire DevOps team
Reusability – build a growing library of test assets that can be leveraged by all users, to support multiple applications and end-to-end tests
Simplified Test Maintenance – easily detect changes with each new software iteration, and update tests automatically to ensure minimal delays in the DevOps process
Data-Driven – run multiple data sets against the same test and increase test coverage and agility

  • What’s New in ALM - Enhancing your team’s efforts to deliver amazing Apps Recorded: Sep 27 2017 57 mins
    Oren Ziv, Collin Chau, Esther Balestrieri
    ALM QC 12.55 has just been released in August, providing enhanced features and benefits for Application teams, end users and ALM admins working together to deliver high quality applications with confidence.

    Join us as we review the key newly released capabilities of ALM/QC 12.55 and walk through a live demo.

    ALM/QC 12.55 Highlights include:

    •Test board enhancements providing improved user experience for test management and execution
    •Support for Quality of Things (QoT) – ALM client for offline/online Internet of Things (IoT) & device manual testing
    •Improved collaboration through integration of Skype for business
    •Upgraded administration with ability to back up large files

  • Accelerate the BusDevOps Cycle with Storyteller and HPE ALM Recorded: Sep 21 2017 52 mins
    Susan D'Angelo
    Agile works well for small, co-located teams that can hover around sticky notes on a Kanban board, and collaborate on-demand. But as initiatives become more complex, and teams become dispersed, Agile can be difficult to scale across the enterprise.

    What’s missing in Agile practices today is the ability to see the whole picture. With user stories as the source of record for an application, it’s hard to connect all the dots to see the complete functionality of a feature or capability. Think about the new team who will be developing additional features on that capability - where can they learn everything it does today? How will they know the impact their changes will have on that capability or potentially other capabilities? How will they collaborate on those changes and get them reviewed in a timely manner? How will your business stakeholder understand the impact of new those changes to the overall business process? Storyteller provides a centralized reusable searchable repository of exiting business and technical process models and requirements (business, non-functional and regulatory). In addition we also offer rich visualization, collaboration and review functionalities. These base capabilities are being used today to address the questions above. And - we do it in a way that everyone can understand from Business Stakeholders down to developers and testers.

    Storyteller is a key player in Enterprise Agile. We bridge the business gaps in the current agile process. For companies struggling with Agile Transformation, we providing guardrails around writing user stories and feature decomposition. Project teams can save time and effort by using our user story and test plan generation which can them be automatically synched over to ALM tools. We are also a key player in the BizDevOps chain by providing that upfront business alignment so what is produced though “Dev” and delivered and maintained by “Ops” is exactly what “Biz” wanted.
  • Introducing the Network Operations Management Suite from HPE/Micro Focus Recorded: Sep 19 2017 57 mins
    Joe Reves, Brian Kaplan, Jon Kies
    Network engineering and operations teams face a complex, moving target. But unfortunately, they’re typically armed with only a disparate collection of management tools - with little or no integration. Network teams deal with equipment outages, slowdowns, security breaches, inability to reach resources, access denials, and other issues that can be caused by anything from a bad connection to devious hackers.

    To address these challenges, we are now offering the 5th suite in the ITOM portfolio – Network Operations Management (NOM). Combining the functionality of Network Node Manager i (NNMi) and Network Automation (NA) and additional suite functionality such as reporting, NOM represents our path forward to managing web-scale networks with their evolving mix of physical, virtual, and software-defined networks.
    Join this webinar to get an in-depth understanding about Network Operations Management including:
    •Enhanced workflows designed to drive productivity and reduce
    •Ongoing capability and content enhancements for both the suite and standalone products
    •New licensing models to enable upgrades at an average of half the cost of a la carte purchases

  • Using Machine Learning in Software License Discovery for Greater SAM Maturity Recorded: Sep 13 2017 56 mins
    Bill Dyck, Nick Rendall
    Accurate software asset management (SAM) is critical to a company’s IT operations in order to optimize usage and cost, and ensure that license compliance is achieved to avoid true-ups and penalties. Keeping a company’s software application library up-to-date for SAM has been a continuous struggle for asset managers given the time it takes for manual entry of new titles, the changing information in software titles, and the sheer number of titles across an enterprise organization. Every software title not recognized in their library causes potential license compliance breaches (leading to true-ups and potential fines) and reduces an organization’s ability to optimize their software license usage for cost optimization.

    Micro Focus (HPE Software) has added the industry leading IDOL unstructured search engine to add machine learning to Universal Discovery, drastically improving in the process of software license recognition and teaching for quicker software license recognition and a consistently up-to-date SAI over time. Join us on September 13th for an introduction to this exciting new capability and to understand the business value it can bring to your SAM program.

    As part of the planned Software spin-off and merger with Micro Focus, HPE’s Software organization is undergoing a major transformation to shape the combined company as uniquely positioned to help customers on challenges across a hybridized environment.

    And hybrid is much more than a buzzword. In today’s reality, not only do businesses have to deal with the rapidly changing technologies and multiple deployment models, but they also have to deal with the pressure of reducing their run costs and to constantly innovate.

    During this transformation, we have interviewed thousands of customers, conducting deep market research, allowing us to gain unprecedented market insights. Join this webcast and learn about the new waves of tech disruptors, and how, our combined, software pure-play company is going to shape the industry.

    “When you prepare for a global merger of this scale, it gives each company an unprecedented opportunity to look at all of their processes and take steps to optimize. We have had the luxury of stepping back and asking how do we transform our IT platform to support our strategy for tomorrow? Few of us ever get this opportunity.”
