Looking out, your organization’s success depends on flexibility and ability to rapidly adapt to market trends, and innovate faster. Looking in, it also depends on increased business efficiency and effectiveness. These two can, and need to be achieved together.
You can drive innovation and time to market by adopting Agile software development. But business efficiency and effectiveness are hard to achieve when you manage a disparate array of applications, deployed across a range of platforms and tools chosen by different teams in your organization: business, development, quality, operations. Maintaining that type of environment is costly, inefficient, and inherently risky.
Take quality as an example. Iterative and agile development drives faster cycle times. But quality for agile has lagged the updates of agile. The result is riskier code practices, with less visibility, at a time when organizations face exposure to risk due to customer-facing mobile and other new applications.
You need consistent agile quality strategies and application component visibility in order to succeed.
In this webinar, we will show you how HP Agile Manager enables your team to surface quality throughout the entire software quality lifecycle, from writing quality code, to functional and nonfunctional testing of Agile artifacts, all the way to monitoring the application in production, and looping back production feedback into development, thus opening the door to DevOps.
Performance has taken on many different meanings over the years. Given the evolution of Mobile, Cloud and now IoT (Internet of Things) that is true more now than ever. In addition, as practitioners; it seems that Performance is defined in many ways including: Functional, Non-Functional, Security, Usability, and more.
This webinar is right for you whether a Performance Tester or VP of Ops, as we will take a deep-dive approach to show you some proven practices to improving performance.
In this session you will learn:
Impact of application performance from customer references and surveys [some enterprises report $5M per hour loss from incidents]
Deep dive on industry leading application performance optimization capabilities [delivering at least 40% improvement]
Enable you to get started now and deliver results today
We are going through a major technology revolution. The new trends are bringing new challenges to you to deliver quality apps. It is now time to re-think how to do performance testing; it is time to mature to performance engineering to ensure application performance throughout the lifecycle.
In this webinar, you will learn about these trends: Mobile, Cloud and Big Data and how to maximize performance process and testing solutions to deliver faster and with quality.
Performance is a key pillar of quality that companies often overlook in their race to market and it brings high impact to business. Join us to learn about Performance testing maturity levels and how to apply it.
Few organizations have effectively leveraged test automation to its fullest potential. This is often due to the fact that many of the available QA tools aren’t designed to offer the breadth of coverage needed or the flexibility to keep pace with dynamic changes in business applications. Additionally, recognizing and monetizing the value of automation has often been difficult due to the lack of consistent, quantifiable methods.
In this webinar, we will share ways in which to build a more responsive, scriptless test automation framework within your current ALM strategy and how to measure its value, continuously across your business.
In this session, we will discuss:
•How to assess your current state of test automation readiness
•How to develop a plan that will optimize test automation, people and processes
•How a data-driven, scriptless test technology can benefit any sized organization
•How to develop and maintain high levels of regression testing needed, using dynamic automated methods
•How to leverage the best mix of tools and methods to accelerate success
•How to quantify the value of automation for your business
