  • How to Achieve Cloud Control Using Micro Focus Hybrid Cloud Management Recorded: Apr 18 2018 58 mins
    Shaw Zhang, Neil Miles
    Brought to you by the Vivit Automation & Cloud Builders Special Interest (SIG) Group.

    Attend this webinar to receive a live demonstration of public cloud service brokering, aggregation and governance using the Micro Focus Hybrid Cloud Management solution. HCM allows IT to easily aggregate public cloud resources into an end-user catalog, while providing governance and analytics to ensure business unit consumption is visible and within budget. In addition, learn how improved control of public cloud spending can help you start building a strong business case for cloud management.

    Cloud Aggregation & Brokering
    - Cloud service aggregation to quickly aggregate hybrid cloud services and publish offerings in catalog
    - Self-service web portal access to catalog services for end users to consume services

    Hybrid Cloud Governance
    - Get visibility into IT cloud costs with show-back reporting for LOBs/organizations
    - Policy-based budget quota management to proactively track cloud costs and notify on quota overages
  • SIG Talk: Quality and Testing 5 - Proven Practices Recorded: Apr 17 2018 56 mins
    Mark Ford, Arvind Namasivayam
    Shown below is an outline of the agenda and topics:

    Speaker: Mark Ford
    Integrate your SDLC Tools Quickly and Easily with Tasktop Hub: Integrating your Micro Focus tools with other SDLC tools can bridge gaps and facilitate far better communication paths than emails and excel sheets alone. Sure, it would be great to have everyone under the same umbrella, but that’s not always the reality we live in. So why not allow other teams to work on the same Micro Focus ALM Requirement, Test, or Defect from their own SDLC tool? I’ll show you how you can set up a basic Defect synchronization between Micro Focus ALM and Atlassian JIRA for example in as little as 5 minutes using a product from Micro Focus partner Tasktop called Tasktop Hub
    .
    Speaker: Arvind Namasivayam
    Tips and Tricks of Installing, Administering and Using Micro Focus Mobile Center: In this segment you will be introduced to a quick overview on Micro Focus Mobile Center. Arvind will explain some o the challenges that he faced while installing the tool. He will also share valuable tips and tricks on effectively implementing and using Micro Focus Mobile Center.

  • Accelerate High-Quality App Delivery with the Micro Focus DevOps Suite Recorded: Mar 28 2018 55 mins
    David Landsberg, Malcolm Isaacs, Ayal Cohen
    According to the 2017-18 World Quality Report, 88% of companies surveyed are using or experimenting with DevOps, and that number is growing. Making the transformation is not easy, and it’s made even more complicated by tools that aren’t integrated with each other, do not communicate with each other, and do not offer end-to-end visibility into and collaboration across the DevOps pipeline.

    Micro Focus recently introduced their DevOps Suite, consisting of best-of-breed lifecycle management (ALM Octane), functional and performance testing (StormRunner Functional and StormRunner Load), and production monitoring (AppPulse) tools.

    Attend this webinar to hear about the DevOps Suite, and how it can help your team accelerate application delivery at high quality and scale. We’ll also show you an end-to-end demo of the products. Here is what you will learn:

    • Challenges facing organizations making an agile or DevOps transformation today
    • Why it’s critical for organizations to have DevOps tools that share data and insights with each other as well as being tightly integrated with the pipeline
    • How the Micro Focus DevOps Suite provides you with lifecycle and
    pipeline management, continuous functional and performance testing
    from the cloud, and production monitoring for continuous assessment
  • SIG Talk: IT Operations 1 - ITSMA/ Hybrid Cloud Management Recorded: Mar 15 2018 61 mins
    Eric Krueger, David Angradi
    Vivit launches its first ever IT Operation Management (ITOM) SIG Talk event. We have 3 speakers who will give you insights in the ITSMA Containers Concept and migration into the Hybrid Cloud. They will share their knowledge and expertise and provide thought-provoking and actionable content.

    Shown below is an outline of the agenda and topics:

    •Speaker: Eric Krueger
    Everything you need to know about the Micro Focus ITSMA Containers Concept: Containers are here and they are the best way to deploy, maintain and upgrade software. What are containers? How are they deployed? How is the software different on containers than traditional platforms? Why did HPE/Micro Focus decide on a containerization approach to their ITSM suite? Tune in and find out why containers are the deployment method of the future and how to transition your existing ITSM suite from your Linux or Windows environment to a Containerized environment.

    •Speakers: David Angradi
    A “real” migration into the Hybrid Cloud (HCM, PlateSpin, and Cloud Assess): The Hybrid cloud has either been a unicorn (something beautiful but not real) or a boogey man (something to prevent disruption) in our ecosystem for the last several years. In marketing and static architectures, we have seen a lot of promises, but very little actual progress.

    Hybrid Cloud is becoming more important everyday as nearly all companies are in (or will be in) the public cloud but many of these same companies ‘know’ that they cannot be 100% public. So, the problem we are all trying to solve is how can we provide all the features, functions and automations.

    What will be covered:

    •Building and migrating existing workloads to a Hybrid cloud
    •Use Cloud Assess product to discover and right size
    •Plate spin to move – migrate – in automation
    •Use HCM product for day-to-day management, automation and ITSM control

  • How to Build an Efficient Security Operation Center with the ArcSight SIEM Recorded: Feb 14 2018 34 mins
    Soma Bola
    With the growth of the number of cyberattacks, having a Security Information Event Management (SIEM) Technology in place can aggregate and correlate data from security feeds. These include: network discovery and vulnerability assessment systems, risk and compliance systems, log management systems, penetration testing tools, firewalls, IPS, threat intelligence feeds, host antivirus systems, web security appliances, and email security appliances. SIEM can be a "single pane of glass" for the security analysts to monitor the enterprise.

    SIEM Technology also allows companies to be able to correlate data from various sources to surface patterns that could represent malicious or suspicious activity. This way, they can prevent, block, or contain all nefarious networks activity and attacks.
