ALM Forum Announces Full Conference Program For ALM Forum Seattle April 1-3, 2014

ALM Forum addresses the latest trends and best practices for achieving agility across the software development lifecycle

SEATTLE, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ALM Forum, (http://alm-forum.com), today announced its full conference program for ALM Forum Seattle, a conference dedicated exclusively to sharing knowledge for success within the fast-growing Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) industry, which will be held April 1-3 in Seattle, Washington. The finalized schedule is available at (http://alm-forum.com/s14/program). IT executives, architects and managers will come together to learn and share experience around four major tracks: Business of Software Delivery, Lifecycle Architecture & Integration, the Practices of DevOps, and the Changing Role of Test.

"The ALM Forum conference program was specifically developed so attendees will gain a clear understanding of how to manage the growing complexity of large-scale software delivery," said Keith Pleas, executive director of ALM Forum. "From the keynote sessions to the workshops, speakers will provide expert advice on best practices using real-life examples with an emphasis on creating successful application design and implementation outcomes."

The conference provides IT executives, architects and managers the opportunity to learn from industry experts and keynotes Ken Schwaber, Scott Ambler, Steve Denning and Sam Guckenheimer – and also to network and share experiences with their peers. The goal of the conference is to share learning experiences and successful approaches to integrated, effective software delivery.

ALM Forum Seattle Tracks include:

  • Business of Software Delivery – explores how good application development life-cycle management practices and tools can aid in overcoming challenges such as: global Agile development, driving successful product delivery in regulated environments, and balancing the expectations of management with the reality of application delivery.
  • Lifecycle Architecture & Integration – helps attendees recognize the diversity of tools and practitioners in the software development and deployment lifecycle, and seek to improve the connection and collaboration among them.
  • Practices of DevOps – practitioners will share how they are adopting practices such as continuous deployment, production instrumentation and telemetry to deliver higher-quality, more valuable software into users' hands more quickly – whether those users are in the cloud or serviced with a hybrid cloud/enterprise infrastructure.
  • Changing Role of Test – looks at the changing role of testing in today's SDLC and how continuous testing concepts are changing the way software is developed and deployed.

In addition to the multitude of sessions available in the four conference tracks, ALM Forum features:

  • "Lightning" sessions – Shorter duration, tightly focused presentations that will provide a wider variety of technical, social, and managerial topics.
  • Birds of a Feather sessions – Similar to "meet-ups", these sessions will provide a way to stay continuously connected to your peers and discuss challenging issues with industry experts.

Pre- and post-conference Workshop tracks include: Agile Practices that Matter, Enterprise Agility, Managing Applications with TFS, Disciplined Agile Deliver, Build and Continuous Delivery Patterns, and IBM Continuous Delivery.

Registration for the conference, scheduled for April 1-3, 2014 in Seattle, is open by visiting: http://alm-forum.com.  Early Bird discounts are available until Feb. 18, 2014.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip?

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people.
