When talking about enterprise DevOps transformation, many people look for a silver bullet — a magic wand that will convert an old, inefficient organization into a high-performing, DevOps-enabled IT team. But in truth there is no single silver bullet. DevOps takes a village. This DevOps village, like a real village, consists of physical infrastructure, as well as members. DevOps often needs a cultural transformation that builds a true community with the same aims and goals. No one vendor has all the tools and no one tool does it all. DevOps tools must work in unison. Finally, a methodology that recognizes the communal nature of DevOps is essential to bringing it all together. Featured guests include:
- John Comas, Manager Platform DevOps, NBCUniversal
- Raghunath Raman, Director, Digital APIs and Integration Delivery, Kaiser Permanente
- Rosalind Radcliffe, Distinguished Engineer, Chief Architect for Enterprise DevOps, IBM
- Sanjeev Sharma, CTO DevOps Adoption, Distinguished Engineer, IBM
- Hosted by: Alan Shimel, Editor-in-Chief, DevOps.com

Increasingly, high-performing IT organizations are taking a comprehensive, automation-based approach to application performance management (APM). Such an approach is particularly important for applications destined for hybrid deployments. Yet, the majority of incumbent APM toolsets deliver visibility to discrete portions of the hybrid execution environment versus the totality of the end-to-end transaction. In addition, most focus only on management of production systems versus enabling IT teams to build application quality into software throughout the lifecycle. Join Julie Craig of EMA as she discusses the benefits and the challenges of utilizing leading-edge APM tooling throughout the software lifecycle to optimize development, deployment, maintenance, and management of hybrid application environments. Hear from IBM about their current APM offering, as well as an IBM APM customer from South African Revenue Services who will share his experiences and best practices for managing hybrid applications.
Attend this webinar to discover how leading-edge APM solutions:
- "Shift left" the process of end-user monitoring to ensure that software delivered to production is "production ready"
- Enable IT operators and site reliability engineers to consolidate infrastructure- and application- focused monitoring to proactively predict resource utilization growth and provide early warning regarding impending application-related failures
- Automate the processes of root cause analysis, end-to-end transaction tracking, code level diagnostics, and log analysis, all of which are critical APM capabilities

Embracing a DevOps process will allow you to reduce your cycle times to hours instead of months, but you have to keep ensuring great user experience! Monitoring your entire application lifecycle with Application Performance Management will ensure dev and ops collaborate to optimize user experience every step of the way, leaving more time for your next big innovation. Learn how to drive Agility by ensuring application Manageability while still being highly efficient.

Traditional IT organizations have spent years optimizing their monitoring and management of the systems but the walls to Dev have been too high. How can we begin to break down those walls? With the move to hybrid cloud organizations are transitioning to multiple different providers of systems, but still retain the key systems of record in house. How do you begin to tie the operations and the development teams together? The first step is having that existing monitoring collecting the right information for development. This lively discussion will drill into how you can use todays technology to better provide the right debug information to development based on operational monitoring, and how these teams can work together to begin the DevOps transformation.

In order for development teams to keep up with constantly changing user needs, requirements must be captured in a format that minimizes miscommunication, reacts quickly to change, and enables subsequent test assets to be derived automatically. Register for this web seminar to learn a requirements-driven approach that:
- Captures user needs in a format already familiar to business analysts
- Allows testers to automatically generate optimized test cases, test scripts, data, and expected results
- Automatically reflects changes made to the requirements in the test assets
