Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Should the modern enterprise build, buy or configure their IT systems?

The CIO is faced with reconciling the, apparently, irreconcilable. How does he build a cost effective technology platform that provides business agility, and manages risk?

In this session, Steve O’Donnell explains the critical success factors in achieving that desired outcome, the considered compromises, the strategies and tactical approaches that the CIO will need to adopt to deliver business benefits and keep his stakeholders onside. He will look at the different types of application and how they need to be managed and hosted. Where do we build, where do we buy and where is configuration the right answer? How do we choose between in-house infrastructure, managed cloud services and engineered systems?

Join Stephen for a structured approach to providing a cohesive strategy for IT investment that makes sense, and optimises business outcomes whilst being simple enough to gain business stakeholder buy in and approval.

    Jonathon Wright
    What is Digital Experiences (DX) within the Digital Performance Lifecycle (DPL)

    In the digital economy, every business is a software business, and the software landscape is changing forever. The traditional approach to providing business value through lengthy plan-build-test-deploy cycles can no longer deliver value in an increasingly competitive, consumer-centric landscape. Merely compressing these cycles through adopting iterative or agile methods does not address challenges organizations face in terms of innovation, speed to market, quality and resilience.

  • Introducing StormRunner Functional – Easily Extend your Tests to the Cloud Recorded: Nov 28 2017 61 mins
    Robert Gutierrez, Eran Bachar
    Today’s world of testing is a marathon! Testing teams are required to test more environments and mobile devices, without damaging the quality of their applications. They are required to test much earlier in the cycle, and to provide constant visibility, enabling development teams to have a short feedback loop in order to run faster and meet the business demand. This creates a big challenge for testing teams to keep up with the rapid pace of change without compromising on quality.

    In this webinar, Eran will introduce you to StormRunner Functional, the very first and only hybrid test execution service to support the Micro Focus testing tools with Unified Functional Testing (UFT) and UFT Pro (LeanFT), as well as the popular and open source Selenium.

  • Image recognition with deep learning Recorded: Oct 11 2017 39 mins
    Layla Tadjpour, Data Science Consultant, Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California.
    In this webinar, we will learn about image recognition with deep learning. After a brief overview of what deep learning is, and why it matters, we will learn how to classify dogs from cats. That is, how to train a model to recognize dog images from cat images.

    We use Keras, an easy to use python deep learning library that sits on top of Tensorflow, and “fine-tuning”, a very important skill for any deep learning practitioner, to train a model to classify the images.

    Once we trained our model to classify dogs from cats images with high accuracy, we dig into the details of the trained model and look at its building blocks, i.e., Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), Fully Connected Block and activation functions to develop an understanding of how the deep learning model works.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    • Introduction to machine learning and the IDOL engine
    • Machine learning in Universal Discovery
