Session One:

TITLE:

SLA Monitoring & Validation Automated Framework for a Mobile Business Application

WHEN:

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 from 2:00p.m. – 2:30p.m. EDT

WHERE:

The Hyatt Regency Baltimore

WHO:

Vinayak Gaur, Head of Mobile Application Testing, Hexaware Technologies

WHAT:

The presentation will address how business critical mobile applications require constant monitoring of business SLAs to ensure reliability, availability and efficiency of services for customers. A new trend has emerged to test such applications with an established framework, combining the validation and monitoring requirements in a common integrated approach on supported mobile platforms. Vinayak will discuss how Hexaware has implemented an automated mobile test/monitoring framework for a major US-based telephone service provider to diagnose, report and check (24x7) the overall health of all functional components and features of the core business critical mobile application (supported on iOS and Android platforms) that provides VoIP calling features across various countries.

Session Two:

TITLE:

Industrialization of Testing Services

WHEN:

Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EDT

WHERE:

The Hyatt Regency Baltimore

WHO:

Deepika Mamnani, Head of the Solutions and Presales team of the Quality Assurance and Testing Services Solution Group, Hexaware Technologies

WHAT:

This presentation will discuss Gartner's IT Key Metrics that indicate that development and unit testing, system testing, defect removal and quality management comprise around 50% of application development. Combined with a "not just right, but right the first time" expectation, makes agility and faster time to market without compromising on quality key drivers for industrialization of testing services. In this approach, testing services are provided in a factory-like manner, as an assembly line, with pre-built assets and out of the box solutions. This, in turn, is leading to formation of Specialized Testing Functions or CoEs. Deepika will highlight best practices, process levers, and consulting techniques based on her experience in industrialization of testing services. Attend to learn about best practices in setting up CoEs and techniques to define test organization roadmaps. Deepika will also present sample process and tool assets from her consulting engagements.

Friday, April 11, 2014 from 2:00p.m. – 3:00p.m. EDT

WHERE:

The Hyatt Regency Baltimore

WHO:

Anish Krishnan, Senior Consultant, Presales and Solution Team, Quality Assurance and Testing Services Solution Group, Hexaware Technologies

WHAT:

Anish will discuss how, despite the number of commercial and open source tools available today for requirements management, test management, test automation and defect management, spreadsheets are still the most frequently used "tool" in documenting requirements, test cases and defects. Testing organizations may want to use tools to improve productivity and collaboration, but often lack the time, budget, skills, standards, and processes to effectively implement or expand their usage of testing tools. This panel will explore the possibilities of implementing these tools.

Session Four:

TITLE:

HP Tools Roundtable

WHEN:

Friday, April 11, 2014 from 3:00p.m. – 3:30p.m. EDT

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Brown, AVP, Center for the Future of Work at Cognizant Technology Solutions, outlined research, analysis and recommendations from his recently published book on this phenomena on the way leading edge organizations like GE and Disney are unlocking the Internet of Things opportunity and what steps your organization should be taking to position itself for the next platform of digital competition.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect at GE, and Ibrahim Gokcen, who leads GE's advanced IoT analytics, focused on the Internet of Things / Industrial Internet and how to make it operational for business end-users. Learn about the challenges posed by machine and sensor data and how to marry it with enterprise data. They also discussed the tips and tricks to provide the Industrial Internet as an end-user consumable service using Big Data Analytics and Industrial Cloud.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
