DevOps Drive-in: Is your DevOps journey pointed in the right direction?

Wednesday, 4 April 2018 | 9am PT

As IT organizations implement DevOps practices, their journey can take many twists and turns as, over time, the needs of the business change. How do you know your DevOps journey is headed in the right direction? If you were to reduce your cycle time by 80% would that be considered a success? How will you know you are building and delivering customer value?

Success can take many forms depending on your objectives and perspective, and DevOps success stories run the gamut from turning red lights to green to delivering a major innovative change that transforms the business. The assumption is that if software is delivered with speed, the business will just take off. While there are many benefits to accelerating software delivery, there is no guarantee that this will improve the business. Come spend 40 minutes at the DevOps drive-in with Mark Levy and his panel of DevOps experts and they discuss the critical success factors to keeping your DevOps journey on track.

Automation in Action

Julian Fish, Director of Product Management

January 2018

In this webinar, we will demonstrate the ability of Deployment Automation to drive multiple pipeline based releases, delivering different applications to multiple application environments rapidly, whilst maintaining audit, compliance and control to higher level UAT, pre-production and production environments. An extensive Q&A session will be available, giving practitioners the opportunity to ask questions about their specific implementations and use cases.

Enterprise DevOps: The Road to the Digitally Enabled Enterprise

Mark Levy, Director of Strategy

December 2017

DevOps principles and practices were originally developed by leading edge, web scale Silicon Valley companies that were delivering software more frequently than anyone thought possible.  These companies were able to disrupt traditional markets by using DevOps practices to deliver digital innovation faster and with less risk.

Large traditional enterprise IT organizations are under extreme pressure to start this “DevOps Journey”. Failure to do so will put their business at risk due to the pressure of the digital marketplace.  Although the goals and principles of DevOps are the same, there are many differences between the early DevOps “innovators” and DevOps as implemented in large enterprises.  This presentation will highlight the unique challenges enterprises face when implementing DevOps and provide a framework on how to scale DevOps for the enterprise.  Real world examples will be used to illustrate some of the most common challenges enterprises face and the solutions employed to address those challenges.

DevOps Pipeline Management

Julian Fish, Director of Product Management

December 2017

In this session you will learn how multiple pipelines are required to implement an enterprise grade CI/CD solution. The demonstration will cover the implementation of multiple pipelines, dev to release pipeline alignment and the difference between simple application centric CI/CD and Enterprise grade Pipelines and delivery challenges.

Peer Review in a DevOps world

Peter Raymond, Principal Software Architect

December 2017

In this session you will learn about the benefits of peer review and how review can be incorporated into your DevOps lifecycle. We will show how Dimensions® CM Pulse can bring together relevant information from your development tooling, enabling efficient and informed review of application changes.

You will see how peer review adds value to your DevOps process by catching potential issues early in the development lifecycle and helping your team collaborate to resolve them.

Aligning DevOps tools with ITIL practices

Kevin Lee, Senior Solution Architect

December 2017

In this session you will learn how it is possible to align DevOps toolsets with your current ITIL Service Management implementation. In particular we demonstrate how you can integrate Micro Focus Release Control for release and deployment with ServiceNow for change and incident management.

Continuous Testing as part of your CI/CD Pipeline

Chris Meranda, Senior Solution Engineer

December 2017

In this session you will learn how testing and QA fit within an overall DevOps strategy. While software delivery accelerates through increased iterations, multiple builds, and shift left approaches, testing becomes paramount to provide feedback for faster resolution, and accelerate toward production release with confidence. In this session we will examine how automation from environment preparation to test process control to test automation supports a DevOps paradigm using Silk® and Deployment Automation solutions.

DevOps Live ARA for Database Deployments

Wes Godard, DevOps Engineer

December 2017

In this session you will learn how Deployment Automation can be used to deliver database changes. Managing database changes are a key component in applications, and are often the last component to be automated. You will see how Deployment automation can simplify and coordinate database changes as a part of your ARA strategy.

Agile, Requirements and DevOps

Kelly Gundler, Senior Solution Engineer

December 2017

In this session you will learn how to remove bottlenecks between business and development teams that have the potential to slow down the delivery processes. These inefficiencies are often exposed in Agile practices, but can be overcome with an approach that allows you to easily gather, manage, share, and track the needs of the business through the delivery of the solution.  Atlas and Rhythm simplify the flow so teams can respond with agility to shifting business priorities and customer expectations.

Integrating Build and Deployment Automation

Kevin Lee, Senior Solution Architect

December 2017

In this session you will learn how to successfully create a delivery pipeline, demonstrating the integration of Micro Focus Deployment Automation with Build Automation tools such as Jenkins and TeamCity. We will also look at the possibilities of integrating with Dimensions CM Pulse for build and even using Deployment Automation to carry out the build itself.

Application Automation for Application Servers

Wes Godard, DevOps Engineer

December 2017

In this session you will learn how Deployment Automation can be used to speed the delivery of application changes to an environment. In this webinar we will look at a web application and how the use of an ARA solution reduces downtime, reduces risk, and ensures quality.

DevSecOps in Practice

Peter Raymond, Principle Software Architect

December 2017

In this session you will learn how automated continuous inspection can help detect potential security issues early in your development lifecycle. We will show how Dimensions CM Pulse and Micro Focus Deployment Automation can be used to ensure security considerations are included in your development process by automating the process of building, inspecting, reviewing and deploying applications with confidence.

DevOps Live: Integrated Application Automation and Test Automation

Julian Fish, Director of Product Management

November 2017

This webinar recording will demonstrate the value of the Micro Focus “Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery” approach, as applied within the wider DevOps tool-chain and eco system. You will learn how Application and Test Automation provides the backbone for an Enterprise class CI/CD Solution.

We will explain how our class leading integration capabilities allow us to work seamlessly with technologies such as ServiceNow, ChangeMan® ZMF, Dimensions CM and Atlassian Jira, for both Mainframe and Distributed platforms.

Learn how Deployment and Test Automation works in conjunction with team centric build tools like Jenkins and TeamCity to provide enterprise grade, application centric deployment pipeline capabilities and can help deliver "full stack" automation through its extensive plugin capabilities.

An extensive Q&A session will be available, giving practitioners the opportunity to ask questions about their specific implementations and use cases.
