Stuck in the Middle: How to Achieve DevOps Quality On Your Terms

Wednesday, June 15, 2022 - 10:30am to 11:15am

If you ask ten people the true definition of DevOps, you'll get ten answers. There are different views on what DevOps is and who has achieved success. Many organizations know what is necessary to build quality into their DevOps processes, but many are stuck in the middle of their transformation. They've tried all the best practices to mimic the fast-paced startups and unicorns but can't figure out how to ensure quality.

Open Source Developers Are Security’s New Front Line

Wednesday, June 15, 2022 - 11:45am to 12:30pm

Bad actors have recognized the power of open source and are now beginning to create their own attack opportunities. This new form of assault, where OSS project credentials are compromised and malicious code is intentionally injected into open source libraries, allows hackers to poison the well. In this session, Sonatype will explain how both security and developers must work together to stop this trend. Or, risk losing the entire open source ecosystem.

Implementing Business Agility Through Value Streams

Wednesday, June 15, 2022 - 11:45am to 12:30pm

Agile transformations involve organizational transformation. This business level agility is the core element of even large-scale agile transformation frameworks like the SAFe and Disciplined Agile Delivery. When teams have emotional attachments to tools that fail to support business agility with total cost of ownership or when people focus on vocabulary without understanding the overarching purpose, the focus on value is undermined. These are the reasons why I claim that while Agile is a teenager, agility is a toddler still.

AI-based Testing Will Keep You Relevant in Tomorrow’s Digital Evolution

Wednesday, June 15, 2022 - 3:00pm to 3:45pm

Test automation is critical for success in today’s digital evolution. Software test engineers must think differently, because doing more of the same simply isn’t good enough. If we want to keep pace with the ever-shrinking development cycles, we must work smarter and adopt the latest innovations in AI/ML and analytics. Join this session where Don Jackson will explain the key test automation imperatives that will keep you relevant.

The Rise of Fake Data: How to Achieve 100% Use Case Coverage with Advanced Data Synthesis

Thursday, June 16, 2022 - 10:00am to 10:45am

Quality testing is not possible without quality data. With the ever-increasing complexity of today’s data ecosystems, generating useful, test data has become harder and riskier than ever. Test data solutions now exist that integrate directly into your data ecosystem to create test data that work across a variety of database types and looks, acts, and behaves like your production data because it's made from your production data.

Integrate SAP Into Your CI/CD Pipeline to Deploy Faster

Thursday, June 16, 2022 - 10:00am to 10:45am

There's a common misconception DevOps for SAP isn't practical, or even possible. While it's true there are architecture and practice considerations, DevOps is easily practiced in SAP with the right tooling. And given that SAP enables many critical end-to-end business processes, it needs to adapt at high speed if a business is going to be truly agile. In this session, we’ll approach the challenge of SAP in a DevOps context and arm you with knowledge to overcome common "DevOps isn't possible in SAP" objections.

Eliminating Silos in Scrum: How to Avoid a Major Agile Failure

Thursday, June 16, 2022 - 1:30pm to 2:15pm

While many organizations report using “agile” development approaches, the truth is their processes and culture are anything but.

In this industry technical presentation, Jeff outlines common mistakes organizations make when implementing Scrum and how to overcome them.
