2019 ADM Roundtable Summaries

Posted By Jill Stefan, Tuesday, June 18, 2019
Updated: Tuesday, June 18, 2019

The Vivit team conducted two unique, spirited meetings while at the ADM Summit held in Rosemont (Chicago suburb) April 9th – 11th, 2019 utilizing high-participation roundtables and addressing exciting topics on DevOps and Agile!

The first roundtable meeting, held on April 10th, focused on “Timely Performance Testing in a DevOps World” and was moderated by Bob Crews, Vivit Community Director, and Florida Vivit Co-leader. Very quickly the meeting went from a group taking one table to two tables with 15 attendees joining the discussion! The group exchanged questions and tips & techniques on easing the challenges and improving the planning, execution, and analysis of performance testing in the extremely fast-paced worlds of DevOps and Agile! Performance testing professionals from numerous organizations participated. Challenges addressing test data creation and management, performance test environment ramp up, and Performance Center and LoadRunner integration with 3rd party DevOps solutions, to name just a few, were discussed. The discussion became so enthusiastic that Bob had to get out of his seat to go from person to person, pointing out who “had the floor” as they excitedly discussed the challenge “on the table”!


The second roundtable, conducted April 11th, was titled “Effective Test Planning and Automation in a DevOps World” and was focused on participants sharing proven methods to increase the speed and maximize the effectiveness of test planning and automation in DevOps and Agile environments! John Ferraiolo, long-time Vivit member and Director of Strategic Accounts for Checkpoint Technologies, moderated a very lively group! Two of the more popular, common challenges discussed were best candidates for test automation for those tests in the DevOps pipeline and strategies to implement DevOps within high-regulatory industries and organizations!

Roundtables are only successful when participants come together who are willing to ask questions and share their experiences and expertise – the attendees at both roundtables did so with passion! No doubt, all departed with ideas to consider and implement back at their perspective organizations. A sincere “Thank you” to all participants! As Bob Crews stated after the performance testing roundtable - you are now dubbed “Knights of the Vivit Roundtable” – a prestigious but totally made-up title!

Micro Focus ADM Summit 2018

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Vivit Board Director/Community Chair, Mark Ford represented Vivit at the Mircro Focus ADM Summit on April 9th in Dallas, Texas.

Mark along with Micro Focus blog editor/community manager, Kim Lock. Vivit was featured as one of three customer community offerings for Micro Focus with Blogs/Forums and TechBeacon rounding out the trio at the Micro Focus Communities booth.

The Summit was an excellent opportunity to to network with the newly created group called Micro Focus Government Solutions. This group was formed to support government organization specific needs within the Micro Focus tool set. Working with Federal Government agencies requires unique set of skills to management and promote Micro Focus products.

“Our focus is on the customer” was the message heard several times throughout the ADM Summit from Micro Focus Senior VP and General Manager, Raffi Margaliot. It was present in the CABs, highlighted in the keynotes and discussed at the Communities booth. All were eager to lend an ear to listen to what I as a customer was looking for with Micro Focus software. It was also great to reaffirm that Vivit is well known in many Micro Focus circles and that we are appreciated for our efforts of education, advocacy, and community. Of course there was also plenty of talk about Octane, Stormrunner, and Deployment Automation in addition to roadmaps, innovation, enterprise scalability, and accelerating application delivery. It was a jam-packed couple of days spent focusing on all things ADM (Application Delivery Management).

The ADM Summit was a great opportunity to learn more about the new Micro Focus, see ADM product directions, deep dive in a workshop, and talk to a lot of ADM customers. If you have an opportunity to attend an upcoming Micro Focus Summit, I would encourage you to do so.
