Value Stream Management / Value Edge

Digital transformation demands that organisations move faster without breaking things. It’s no wonder that your software delivery teams feel the pressure to deliver high-quality applications quickly.

So, what’s the solution? Many are turning to value stream management (VSM), which focuses on the value of software as it moves through the development lifecycle. This customer-centric approach helps teams quickly catch issues, eliminate wasteful activity, and create room for innovation.

Join the conversation with our subject experts for a fireside chat and Q&A. Together, we’ll discuss:

  • What VSM is and why more teams are doing it.
  • How to maximize value delivery to boost business growth.
  • How to gain a competitive edge with VSM.

We can’t wait to hear your questions and thoughts on this trending topic

Modernising Test Automation with Value Stream & Model based testing

Research indicates that testing is the #1 barrier to faster software delivery and test automation has become an essential component to deliver quality software.

In this webinar, our experts will talk about modernizing and accelerating test automation with three key focus areas:

  • Identify and reduce waste in your software delivery lifecycle using Value Stream
  • Optimize Software testing time & cost with Model Based Testing
  • Accelerate delivery with Codeless test automation

AI-Driven Performance Optimisation—A Real-World Example

Modern applications sit atop of many layers, such as Java Virtual Machines, container, database, cloud and more, each providing hundreds of settings all interacting in complex and counterintuitive ways. Manual and trial-and-error performance tuning cannot cope with this complexity with today’s fast release cycles and business speed.

As a result, incorrect configurations may cause poor application performance, low reliability, and resource (cost) inefficiency. This webinar explores how an AI-driven Performance Optimisation solution can allow performance engineers to automate testing, automatically identify optimal full-stack configurations to enable their companies to deliver unprecedented application performance and cost saving, while also improving operational resiliency.

Please join Ray Ffrench, Micro Focus ADM Senior DevOps Technical Consultant together with Stefano Doni, Akamas Founder & CTO, in our ANZ Monster-sized Meetup series as they discuss this modern approach to performance optimisation and how to get the most out of your performance engineering solution.

What will I learn?

  • The fundamental problem with performance optimisation
  • Addressing the challenges with an AI-driven performance optimisation
  • How performance optimisation and performance engineering work together

How AI is Revolutionising Software Test Automation

Test Automation is key to delivering a fast, reliable continuous delivery pipeline, and yet, on average, only 20-30% of organisations are fully automating their testing. But a skillset shortage, and the cost of building and maintaining automation assets, are major barriers to increasing automation coverage.

Bharath Benoit, Micro Focus ADM Senior Technical Consultant shares how Micro Focus leverages Artificial Intelligence to deliver major advances in functional testing.

What will I learn?
Insights include how testers can easily keep up with the speed of application changes across multiple devices and platforms, while reducing the cost of building and maintaining automation assets.
