With the application economy in full swing, more organizations are turning to Continuous Testing and DevOps development practices in order to quickly roll out applications that reflect the ever-changing needs of tech-savvy, experience-driven consumers.
Rigorous data they need, in the right formats. This forces teams to postpone their testing until the next sprint. As a result, organizations like yours are increasingly looking for ways to overcome the challenges of poor quality data and slow, manual data provisioning. They are also concerned about compliance and data privacy when using sensitive information for testing. CA Test Data Manager can help you mitigate all these concerns, so youíre positioned to achieve real cost savings.
Learn how a security rationalization process helps CISOs optimize your security infrastructure while improving the bottom line. Development velocity is accelerating as enterprises adopt DevOps methodologies, yet security is still not integrated into the coding and deployment processes. Security teams are falling further behind as their manual processes and controls canít scale at the same rate as development. This paper discusses:
The impact the current approach to application security has on business
How shifting security left in the application development process, seamlessly integrating it ďearly and often,Ē can accelerate innovation
Questions the Board and C-suite are now asking about security: are you prepared?
Read this paper to learn how, by shifting security left in the development process, itís now no longer an obstacle to velocity, innovation and competitiveness. Instead, itís an asset.

Letting security slip for even a moment can be detrimental to your enterprise. Unfortunately, fast-moving and changing cloud environments donít make things easier. To avoid making costly mistakes in the first place, everyone must do their part. With "The Six Essentials for DevOps Team Excellence," learn how DevOps teams can incorporate security and development and maintain agility.
"The fast pace of innovation demanded by todayís digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance
of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams.
As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats.
The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. Itís all about speed."
According to the new Accelerate: State of DevOps 2018: Strategies for a New Economy report, elite DevOps performers have more frequent code deployments, faster lead times, lower change failure rates, and far quicker incident recovery times.

Application performance has become a hot topic in recent yearsóbut our need for it is, quite honestly, nothing new. Your websites and applications can thrive, or face severe costs, depending on how well you deliver content to your users, and web architecture has had to evolve to deliver to your users. Download this new ebook to learn more about modern applications architecture, including how application delivery has evolved, why the modern application has increased performance expectations and demands and why NGINX and NGINX Plus are the solutions your DevOps team has been waiting for.
If youíre managing an IT team, you may be turning to DevOps as the path to faster delivery of software.
DevOps can help your team become more efficient ó and your organization more competitive ó but youíll need to be able to communicate to your team why things are changing, and how their usual working practices are likely to alter.

If you work in DevOps or software QA, you likely already know why
automated software testing is essential for quality control to keep
pace with continuous delivery. Automated testing delivers faster
results and more thorough coverage, and enables shift-left testing
for earlier detection of bugs.
Yet the issue of how to approach automated testing remains difficult
for many QA teams to solve. A range of obstacles makes it challenging to begin automating software tests, or to increase the extent of test automation beyond the basics.
DevOps allows teams to effectively build, test, release, and respond to your software. But creating an agile, data-driven culture is easier said than done. Developer and devops teams struggle with lack of visibility into application monitoring tools and systems, accelerated time-to-market pressure, and increased complexity throughout the devops lifecycle process.
