2008 was a tough year for IT, and 2009-2010 appear to be more of the same: Budget cuts, a focus on conserving cash and doing more with less. At the same time, technology has not stood still: innovative technologies that have the potential to deliver strategic value, such as application virtualization and replay debugging, are still being developed, and are entering the mainstream. What can we learn from previous economic downturns with regards to making technology investments in such a climate?

Join Theresa Lanowitz, analyst from voke, and Jonathan Lindo, CEO and Founder of Replay Solutions for a podcast discussion of current challenges in today's application problem resolution processes and suggestions for how application development teams can dramatically shorten the process of fixing defects to speed time-to-market. This session will give practical guidance on how your application team can:

  • Make incremental investments that have immediate ROI through the elimination of manual work
  • Save money and increase efficiency by eliminating complex processes needed to reproduce defects
  • Improve productivity with better collaboration between geographically disperse teams
  • Increase application quality by fixing those hard to find or elusive defects

Replay Solutions provides application problem resolution products that dramatically shorten the process of fixing defects to speed time-to-market. ReplayDIRECTOR functions like a DVR for enterprise applications - recording all inputs and events affecting your application while it is running, then replaying those steps to execute the code in exactly the same way and reproduce the error without needing to reproduce the environment the defect occurred in.


 
This week at VMWorld 2007 it was apparent that virtualization is moving up the stack and tool vendors proliferated.  Listen to voke principal analyst Theresa Lanowitz on this edition of "Week in Review."

Application performance management requires you to pay attention to each step of the performance lifecycle - from designing the architecture, to the build, to testing, monitoring, maintenance and management. Performance experts dissect each phase of the lifecycle to reveal solutions for the most common performance problems, the right tools for the job, and tips for finding, diagnosing and fixing performance bugs.

This free, one-day virtual seminar focuses on:

  • Techniques for applying application management across the lifecycle
  • How to elicit performance goals for client, server and mobile applications
  • Applying a tools-based approach to any application performance management process
  • How to identify performance issues in cloud environments

Performance experts discuss ways to document performance and scalability requirements, track those requirements through development and test, and measure performance across every stage of the development lifecycle. The panel concludes with a debate on how to best determine if those requirements are met prior to moving to production. This discussion gives you insight into how to:

  • Define measurable performance requirements before a line of code is written
  • Drive development and test strategies through effective performance requirements
  • Determine if performance requirements are met before application deployment

In this joint Borland/VMware webcast, Theresa Lanowitz from voke will talk about what it takes to test and deliver applications that hit their mark using virtualization. And why getting the most out of virtualization depends on how seamlessly it can be integrated with your software testing processes.
