GigaOm Research Byte: Value Stream Management

Posted By Malcolm Isaacs, Thursday, September 12, 2019
Updated: Friday, September 6, 2019
As enterprises scale their DevOps efforts beyond pilots or isolated initiatives, their biggest challenge is coordinating information and activity between stakeholders, each of whom may have different needs and constraints. Their response is often to provision more consistent and structured pipelines, with better measurement and management across development teams. But it’s difficult to know which parts of the pipeline and toolchain to incorporate, manage and measure. Read on.

With Micro Focus, Enel was able to align geographically distributed teams and to improve collaboration, governance, and management reporting. Watch the video.

Universal Discovery CP2019.08 Introduces AWS Event-Based Discovery

Posted By Bill Dyck, Thursday, September 12, 2019
Updated: Friday, September 6, 2019

Introducing AWS Event-Based Discovery with the release of Micro Focus’s Universal Discovery’s Content Pack CP2019.08.

As we all know, resources in the cloud can come and go quickly, and scheduled based discovery can miss those resources that came and went in-between your discovery runs. With AWS Event-Based discovery, you can detect changes in resources almost as quickly as they appear and disappear! This capability is available for all supported versions of Universal CMDB by deploying this content pack and start detecting those AWS resource changes immediately! Many more details can be found here.

This content pack also includes the ability to detect and capture tags stored on Azure resources (in addition to AWS) and those tags can be used in your queries to drive your business processes through to completion.

This content pack is available now to customers of Universal Discovery by downloading from the Micro Focus ITOM Marketplace’s Universal Discovery Content Pack section.

What’s new in OpsBridge 2019.08 Licensing

Posted By Michael Procopio, Thursday, September 12, 2019
Updated: Friday, September 6, 2019

We have just released a new product structure / licensing model for Operations Bridge (OpsBridge) and Application Performance Management (APM) products that simplify and give you vastly greater flexibility in how you can use licenses.

Why have we changed the licensing?
We did this for two reasons, first to simplify–previously, there were over 1000 SKUs, now there are 3. Second, and more importantly, is to provide you even more value. For example, Micro Focus developed Management Packs are now included—you can find them on the ITOM Marketplace.

Topology-Based Event Correlation (TBEC) was previously an extra-cost option with OpsBridge Premium; it is also now included along with unlimited Business Value Dashboards (BVD).

One of the best features, IMHO, is that you can change how the units are used. For example, let’s say you did a facilities consolidation which reduces the number synthetic transaction points you need. You can now use those points for additional server monitoring or any other capability in OpsBridge.

Another way you might use those freed-up points is if you want to test a capability before deciding if you want to put it in widespread use. Maybe you are not using BPM today but would like to see how it works. If you have enough extra points you are all set—no new licenses to purchase.

To find out more about this new licensing see the blog What’s new in OpsBridge 2019.08 Licensing or webinar.

We also have a technical blog post.

Digital Badges for Micro Focus Certification

Posted By Brandon Dick, Thursday, September 12, 2019
Updated: Friday, September 6, 2019

Micro Focus is proud to announce that we are now awarding digital badges to users who pass Micro Focus certification exams. We will also be awarding badges for select programs for past certification earners. These badges will be available through the Credly/Acclaim open-badge platform, which provides user profiles to show badges earned, but also the ability to share badges on a variety of social media platforms.

Badges give further power to the earner by giving them another tool in the job market. A resume only allows for so much information. Badges allow prospective employers to see both learned and demonstrated skills at a granular level. This increases both hiring competency and job satisfaction by getting the right people in the right jobs. Also, each badge earned will recommend additional badges to the earner, enabling them to continue expanding their knowledge and skills in the portfolios and products that are most useful in their career path.

If you or someone you know currently holds a digital badge from Micro Focus, we encourage you to share it on all social media platforms using the hashtag phrase: #MicroFocus #BeBadged

To learn more about our user education programs, please visit Education Central.

Any questions, please contact us at Certifications@microfocus.com.

Identity and Access Management (IAM) Sessions from Cybersecurity Summit On-Demand

Posted By Kent Purdy, Thursday, September 12, 2019
Updated: Friday, September 6, 2019

While the 2019 Micro Focus Cybersecurity Summit has come and gone, that doesn’t mean that you don’t have access to the latest presentations covering security trends and solutions coming out of Micro Focus. Since it’s my area of specialty I’m going to talk about the Identity and Access Management (IAM) sessions that show up as the middle section on the “Content on Demand” page.

https://www.microfocus.com/en-us/events/cybersecurity-summit-on-demand/speakers

Based on my experience with customers, rarely is there a roadmap discussion where customers don’t learn something new. Not just the future stuff coming down the pike, but also what’s in the product today. The IAM roadmap presentations might very well kick off a discussion with your Micro Focus partner or sales rep to better use what you’ve already purchased.

Another noteworthy session is called "Mitigate Your Biggest Security Risk: Privileged Identities." That session starts by covering the root causes of specific risks, then moves on to the key capabilities of NetIQ Privileged Account Manager. Paul Jones from Cerner then explains their strategy and approach for securing privileged users as well as the tangible results they've seen.

In the session that I participated in, Gireesh Kumar introduces the latest IAM offering - NetIQ Secure API Manager, which has become an essential component of access management. In this session, I cover market trends in API usage and vulnerabilities, then Gireesh goes into detail on how Secure API Manager can be used to extend the coverage of your access management environment. If you have IAM responsibilities within your organization, this is a must-see session.

Updated: Friday, September 6, 2019

Attacks targeting the application layer are on the rise. The 2019 Application Security Risk Report by the Micro Focus Fortify Software Security Research team covers the industry trends and insights in the application security landscape.

Fortify on Demand analysis shows broad vulnerability in apps. 4 out of 5 tested web applications had at least one critical or high severity issue. Furthermore, 61% of tested apps had critical or high vulnerabilities not covered by the OWASP Top 10 2017.

In this webinar on September 25th at 8am Pacific, we share results from our research:

  • The attacks to watch out for in 2019
  • How effective are the controls for application layer vulnerabilities?
  • Privacy, Policy, and Standards
  • Vulnerabilities in Open Source Dependencies
  • Best practices to protect your business

Join us for the key takeaways of the 2019 Application Security Risk Report.
