"Businesses continue to evolve as digital technologies reshape industries. The workforce is mobile, and speed and ef ciency are imperative, necessitating dynamic, cloud-based infrastructures and connectivity, as well as unhindered, secure application access — from anywhere, on any device, at any time. Leaders must remove hurdles to progress, but new business initiatives and processes increase the attack surface, potentially putting the company at risk.
"Existing security controls are outmatched — at best static and reactive. Current layers likely aren’t protecting you against all attack vectors, like the vulnerable back door that is recursive DNS. And security mechanisms that frustrate, impede, or disallow legitimate users, devices, or applications will have low adoption rates and/or will curtail productivity. Benign users may even circumvent these processes, further undermining your corporate security posture and creating more gaps in your defense-in- depth strategy.
One of the many use cases associated with a zero trust security strategy is protecting your network — and most importantly, your data — from malware. "

IT Transformation is a concept that resonates with companies even more now than it did 12 months ago. It sounds synonymous with digital transformation, but in actuality, IT Transformation is the set of enabling technologies, processes, and focus areas that make effective digital transformation possible.
A company that transforms its IT infrastructure no longer has to rely on rigid, manual, siloed, legacy technologies. It sees a boost in IT operational speed, efficiency, scale, and cost effectiveness—tasks are automated, processes streamlined, and resources are freed up. Those IT-level improvements fuel a larger-scale digital transformation, allowing the company to thrive in today’s digital economy. It is able to out-innovate, out-think, and out-pace its competitors—ultimately becoming the disruptor, not the disrupted.

Continuous testing is the practice of testing across every activity in the SDLC to uncover and fix unexpected behaviors as soon as they are injected. Continuous testing is the embedding of testing as a fundamental and ongoing aspect of every activity through the application lifecycle, from requirements through production, to ensure the business value is being achieved as expected.
As the pace of business continues to quicken, companies are starting to recognize that to stay competitive the process of developing and releasing software needs to change. Release cadence has greatly accelerated. There is no occasion anymore for a six- to 18-month find-and-fix turnaround in which the customer will find the delay acceptable. Things need to move faster, and they need to be ready and perfect faster.

Business applications have become the battleground for customer loyalty. To compete, IT organizations are under pressure to deliver applications faster and with higher quality. Continuous Delivery (CD) of code offers a solution. CD may be paired with DevOps, Agile and other methodologies. However, QA and testing can be an obstacle to CD’s rapid development and deployment of high quality code. Testers and developers must engage in Continuous Testing, continuously testing software for performance, quality and user experience as it’s being developed.
Continuous Testing is not a push button process, though. It requires a comprehensive approach. This paper outlines the common challenges to Continuous Testing and highlights results from real users who have used technology to get to succeed with the Continuous Testing process.
If you’re relying on manual processes for testing applications, artificial and automated intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) can help you build more efficient continuous frameworks for quality delivery.
In this on-demand webinar, “Continuous Intelligent Testing: Applying AI and ML to Your Testing Practices,” you’ll learn how to:
Use AI and ML as the new, necessary approach for testing intelligent applications.
Strategically apply AI and ML to your testing practices.
Identify the tangible benefits of continuous intelligent testing.
Reduce risk while driving test efficiency and improvement.
This webinar offers practical steps to applying AI and ML to your app testing.
The speaker, Jeff Scheaffer, is senior vice president and general manager of the Continuous Delivery Business Unit at CA Technologies. His specialties include DevOps, Mobility, Software as a Service (SaaS) and Continuous Delivery (CDCI).
The ‘80s Called… … And they don’t want their enterprise Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) tools back.
If your Project Management Office (PMO) is still relying on the same or similar processes and systems used when neon and mullets were trending, it will never keep pace with today’s market demands or shifts in technology. Six-month deployment schedules and command and control models of yesteryear are actively being replaced with continuous delivery methods and practices like agile and lean—all in the interest of driving greater customer engagement.

Whilst businesses of all kinds are utilizing data analytics, many are still only using it to make simple changes that lead to a set of rigid processes. Whereas the more customer-focused organizations are realizing that to deliver exceptional experiences, they need to be able to react to customer data in real-time and predict what might happen next. And that means going beyond simple analytics.

Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption
Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT.
Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.
