ALM, Agile ALM, DevOps, Continuous Delivery - strangers, cousins, twins from different mothers? (Presented by IBM)

Session Type: 
Sponsored Session
Speakers

It seems that the faster our markets move, the faster we invent buzz words. The more complex the market becomes, the more complex our buzzwords. Let's play buzzword bingo while discussing ALM, Agile ALM, DevOps and Continuous Delivery. Are they practices? Attempts at defining the software lifecycle? Market categories? Tools? Or all of the above? We'll have something to give to the first person who fills out their buzzword bingo card.

Building a VM based Custom Application in an Agile CI Environment in a Timely Manner

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

When virtualization and agility intersect, there are 2 competing concerns. Agility best practices include continuous integration with a rapid build feedback loop. With virtualization - self contained, manageable and reproducible VMs are often large in size. This can make rapid creation, when application source code changes, a time-consuming task that can interfere with the need for a rapid build feedback loop.

Continuous Happiness

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Does your engineering culture promote happiness, for your teams and for your customers? Or is it cluttered with procedure and toolchains that inhibit and constrain creativity, innovation and play? We often do not recognize how much our process and tools can effect our culture, which impacts our products and ultimately our customers. Our goal should be to delight our customers, so everyone's efforts should be pointed that way. Continuous delivery is the centerpiece to these efforts, but it requires building tools and teams to enable it.

Binary Repository for Non-Developers

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

With the dawn of agile and what seems to be the beginning of a renaissance for good ALM, many important concepts have risen; the Binary Repository is one of them and is already considered an indispensable piece of infrastructure.
But why should developers have all the fun? Many concepts of ALM aren't exclusive to developers and can actually provide immense benefit in nearby fields such as DevOps, QA and content management.

DevOps Without Dev Is Dead On Arrival

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Software applications are often the engine of business today, and to gain a competitive advantage, they need to quickly innovate and respond to change without compromising quality. To meet these needs, software development teams are increasingly adopting methodologies such as Agile to deliver software more frequently. Building and testing these applications is one challenge, but getting them into production environments is quite another.

Deployment-oriented development with Puppet

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

There is the code that you've written, and then there are the systems
upon which that code executes. Developers take it for granted that
they can modify their code, refactor it, split it up into components,
and evolve it over time to better meet their needs. So why can't we
apply the same sort of principles to our infrastructure?

This talk aims to answer the following question:

"How would the way you do development change if you could model your
infrastructure as code?"

Puppet is a tool that helps automate the configuration of systems. It

A Day in the Life of a Jazz.net Developer

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Developing a web site demands agility. At every step of the development process, from planning and prototyping to staging and deployment, the web site must continue to service requests without downtime. Content updates and new features must be delivered quickly so that the site remains relevant, while at the same time ensuring stability and maximizing performance. This session will explore how we meet these demands by walking you through a day in the life of a Jazz.net developer, using the Rational Team Concert Eclipse client and our actual development artifacts.

Agile Development Plus Continuous Delivery is IT Orchestration

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Agile Development has evolved into a lifecycle impacting not only the IT department, but the overall business. Forward thinking enterprises recognize the benefits delivered by the implementation of Agile Development, but may not be implementing it to its full potential. Recent data reveals that development teams have united on agile practices, but lack communication with operations and other development teams and customers. In turn, projects are often slowed and agile success stymied.

How Rational CLM is embracing a Continuous Deployment Pipeline

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Development of IBM Rational’s Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) offering is a rocky road, fraught with numerous technical challenges accompanied by limited human, machine, time resources. The end result at each release is a burnt out development and test community that was trying to pack in a feature-rich release while continuously attempting to achieve a 100% test coverage of an extremely large matrix of supported configurations.

DevOps and Fail-Safe Application Deployments

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

A single application release leads to several deployments across Development, QA, Staging and Production. In the last mile, production deployments often lag in clearing the final key hurdles because of a challenging disconnect between Dev and Ops teams. The ultimate goal of application deployment is getting applications to the customers to provide value. The last thing a developer wants is a deployment failure in production environments, which can mean missed deadlines, costly high-pressure troubleshooting, and customer dissatisfaction.
