Continuous Delivery, the Secret to Owning the Future of the SDLC

In the application economy, you have to deliver software as if your business depends on it … because it does! It’s a bold statement, but true. Think of nearly every interaction a person might have today—be it for work, commerce or play. Most have a digital dimension, which relies on digital technology and platforms.

In order to survive and grow, every company needs to become a technology company and every business needs to become a digital business. Successful transformation requires Continuous Delivery, the new business imperative that enables you to rapidly develop and deliver applications that drive superior user experiences and engage your customers and staff.

But the traditional “software factory” or process for transforming an idea into a customer experience is throttled by a number of bottlenecks in the delivery pipeline. That means delivering innovative, high-quality applications, faster and more frequently can be a chaotic and complex process, particularly if your application delivery systems and processes were designed to only push out one or two releases a year.

Moderator Alan Shimel, DevOps.com; and experts Chris Rowett, CA Technologies and Julie Craig, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and Anbu Muppidathi, Cognizant discuss ways to overcome today’s application economy challenges with solutions designed to transform your software delivery lifecycle into a continuous delivery pipeline of digital innovation.

  • Using EU GDPR Compliance to Build Better Apps Oct 25 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Nathan Devoll, CA Technologies
    With less than a year before the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) goes into effect, many companies are scrambling to figure out how to be compliant with yet another regulation. A better way to approach this (or any) compliance initiative is to understand its basic requirements then search for solutions that will not only help you to meet compliance, but improve your business.

    Don’t just become compliant, become better! The EU GDPR is not only an opportunity to evaluate how your teams use personal data for testing, but how those teams can build better data from scratch with faster and better results.

    Join our expert, Nathan Devoll from CA Technologies, as he clearly explains the EU GDPR and builds the case for generating new data more quickly without the compliance headaches. You’ll come away with a clear understanding how you can become EU GDPR compliant and build better data, at the same time!

  • Speed Up Your Testing with an Automated, End-to-End, Continuous Testing Workflow Recorded: Aug 31 2017 50 mins
    Keith Puzey, CA Technologies
    Testing is a critical but very time-consuming part of the release cycle—in fact, 63% of DevOps adopters still cite current QA processes as a bottleneck. Testing hand-offs, communications, validation and feedback are still very manual. How can you streamline your testing workflow to speed the process and enable better visibility into your testing regimen?

    View this session to learn how to eliminate the testing logjam and put ‘continuous’ in your testing strategy. We’ll demonstrate an integrated testing workflow in CA Continuous Delivery Director that triggers test cases, virtualizes services, manages test data, runs performance tests, checks for security vulnerabilities, validates against criteria, deploys to production and delivers feedback.

    See how you can stay informed at every stage of the application release cycle and speed the delivery of higher-quality apps.
  • 4 Ways Model-Based Testing Can Help You Test at the Speed of Agile Recorded: Aug 29 2017 63 mins
    Alex Martins, Continuous Testing CTO, CA Technologies
    In today’s agile environments, coding without testing in mind makes you unprepared for the velocity or the volume of changes required to attain continuous testing and delivery. Employing a model-based testing approach gets testing on the fast track and lets you test at the speed of agile.

    Unlike traditional testing approaches, model-based testing enables rigorous testing that fits into the same sprint, while allowing stakeholders—from testers and developers to business analysts—to stay in alignment and remain flexible.

    View this session and learn how to employ model-based testing techniques in four key areas of testing: requirements engineering, test design automation, agile testing, and test case optimization.

    You will also learn how to overcome the key challenges developers and testers face, including:

    - Ambiguous requirements
    - Limited test coverage
    - Test data bottlenecks
    - Unavailable system components
    - Lack of automation

  • What’s behind the “1-2 punch” of continuous testing Recorded: Aug 16 2017 45 mins
    Rick Bansal, Principal Consultant, CA Technologies
    Learn the “1-2 punch” of continuous testing by simulating needed test environments and running multi-layer testing across 100’s of protocols even before the UI is complete.With organization’s DevOps efforts testing maturity becomes a key differentiator in organization’s ability to deliver innovation to market. The benefit Agile practices gave development teams to speed up their sprints also left QA and testing professionals having to play catch-up due to slow and inadequate testing practices at the time.

    This session covers how DevTest solutions from CA allows development and testing teams to virtualize critical components, environments and 3rd party systems that might have cost or access restrictions, and then automate functional, regression, API, Web UI and performance tests across all application layers by invoking and verifying the behavior of each component.
