    Webinar: Creating Complete Test Environments in the Cloud

    ​Service virtualization enables development and testing teams to test earlier and test less using simulated, virtual environments. This solution closes the gap with incomplete dev/test environments and allows teams to access the exact environments they need, when needed. By streamlining environment provisioning, it reduces cost, decreases risk, and allows faster time to market.

    

Join Skytap and Parasoft on August 20th at 11am PT / 2pm ET for an informative webinar and learn how to to combine service virtualization with cloud-based dev/test environments.

    Webinar: Software Virtualization Lifecycle

    ​A top focus for application development today is on acceleration, but faster is not always equal to better. The bigger challenge is to improve both the speed and quality of software releases. By utilizing virtualization technology, specifically service virtualization and virtual dev/test labs, in software development life cycles companies can increase test coverage in less time and ultimately produce better software faster.

    Achieving Continuous Integration & Automated Testing With Skytap Cloud

    ​For many companies, Continuous Integration (CI) – the practice of frequently integrating developers’ new or changed code with the existing code repository so that there is no intervening window between code commit and build, and so that no errors can arise without developers noticing them and correcting them immediately – represents the ultimate model for modern software application development and testing. Cloud computing, with its inherent characteristics of elasticity, scale, self-service, and on-demand automation, is increasingly being adopted as a way to realize the full potential of Agile development and to move towards a model of Continuous Integration. Download and watch this webinar presented by Visual Studio Magazine and sponsored by Skytap. We will walk you through cloud enabled ALM with continuous integration and automated testing for today's Enterprise development teams.

    Cloud Enabled Development: Putting the Agile into the Infrastructure

    As software development teams seek greater efficiency and effectiveness, they often find that they are held back by old IT architecture for development and test. They wrestle with low-powered servers, difficult-to-scale static environments, and a slow IT provisioning and change processes.

    Software leaders have radically changed the way they build, test, and deploy software—almost exclusively using cloud computing to power their development processes. Some teams report benefits of 75% faster development cycles with 70% lower operating costs. Brian White provides specifics on which application workloads are ideal for the cloud model and how the use of cloud computing supports Agile development practices.

    Google, IDC and Skytap Discuss Cloud-based Automated Development and Testing Framework

    Shipping high quality software on time and on budget is a tough challenge. Development and test teams struggle with:

    • Getting access to scalable IT environments that support multiple OS, DB and testing tools
    • Gaining the ability to reproduce exact load test and customer scenarios that allows them to focus on what changed.

    The Google Chrome team faced a similar challenge. They moved to the cloud model and developed a "test bot" framework that uses Skytap. As a result, they are able to skip >95% of test work that isn't interesting because it hasn't changed.

    Join this webinar to learn how Jason Arbon from Google created his innovative cloud based "testing bots" approach. In addition, Melinda Ballou from IDC will discuss how cloud computing is changing the automated development and testing landscape.

    Sundar Raghavan will share successes that other customers such as Calypso, Serena, and LANDesk are experiencing with Skytap to reduce testing costs by 70% or more.
