Increasing collaboration between teams to create customer value is now essential to doing business in the modern enterprise. But while understanding and reimagining how value is created through streams (rather than functional processes) becomes ever more important, realizing the value stream and creating value for stakeholders while carrying on with business as usual is challenging.

In this panel discussion, our experts will surface some of the unseen challenges that mean value stream mapping often fails to deliver results in the real world, and share some of the leading-edge thinking and practices they use to overcome them.

For successful product testing, your test teams must be aligned with business criteria. A clearly articulated definition of “done” must be established and communicated to your testing teams. While these statements seem obvious, they are challenges that product development teams routinely struggle to solve, especially if they aren’t using a lifecycle management tool to automate their DevOps Pipeline.

Our latest webinar with Perforce’s Director of Product Management Tzvika Shahaf who hosted Testing Consultant Brijesh Deb for an in-depth and revealing dialogue on all things testing, covered topics including:

  • Testing in an agile reality
  • Business acceptance testing
  • Defining acceptance criteria
  • How testing impacts a team’s ability to meet deadlines
  • Business criteria



Requirements on developers have shifted over the last 5 years. Team sizes are shrinking but responsibilities are growing with DevOps and accelerated SDLC. A developer must become fluent in software architecture, testing, deployment, telemetry, and even security. It is less about multi-layer and more about multi-discipline.

In this talk, Pete Chestna, CISO of North America for Checkmarx shares updates to the insights that he first shared over 4 years ago. We discuss how the opportunities and accountability afforded to developers needs better support from employers and the vendor community. There is practical advice to rise to the challenge.

What you will learn:

  • The change in responsibility and ownership that has occurred in application development
  • The gap that exists in the support system that is impacting your velocity
  • What developers and development leaders should do to better enable teams to succeed


DAY 1 – November 3, 2021 – EXPO DAY,

DAY 2 – November 4, 2021 – WORKSHOP DAY |

This year’s TWO-DAY digital conference examines the benefits of creating and managing value streams in your development organization.

As software development, delivery and performance become more complex due to modern architectures, value streams can help organizations unlock the bottlenecks and eliminate process waste to continuously improve how they work and deliver better experiences to their customers. Value stream management concepts are critical when the product changes frequently due to opportunities in the markets, the materials change due to the complexity of modern software architectures and means of delivery, and the output is often changing based on customer demands and expectations.

At Virtual VSMcon, you will learn how to apply value stream strategies to your development process to gain efficiencies, improve quality and cut costs.



Delightful user experiences start with visual perfection.

With over half of website traffic coming from mobile, the need for faster and higher-quality apps is paramount. Not only that, but Mobile QA teams have to account for visual consistency across the thousands of devices.

Join Frank Moyer as he discusses the best practices for Visual Testing for mobile and why it should be a part of every testing strategy. With Visual UX testing on top of your traditional Visual UI testing, your mobile QA team will be set up for successful releases of pixel-perfect apps.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to scale and improve testing by adding Comprehensive Visual Testing to your QA processes

  • Visual testing vendor comparison
  • Demo of Kobiton and Figma integration



Organizations requiring a faster digital transformation are turning to low-code development solutions, empowering IT and non-IT personnel to use drag-and-drop tooling to quickly create necessary business applications.

At Low Code/No Code Developer Day, you will learn about low-code and no-code tools, where they are appropriate to use, and what they can deliver.



What developers do and how they do it continues to change dramatically. Developers have had to take on additional responsibilities as organizations have cut back or disbanded specialist teams focused on software QA, security and governance. Once primarily originators of code, many developers now assemble software by combining hundreds or thousands of pre-built components. This shift means that the developer domain extends beyond coding to include oversight of the services that surround software components, such as APIs, containers and IaaS platforms.

The successful developers of today and tomorrow will be ‘security-aware’ generalists skilled at managing the intricacies of the software supply chain. These generalists will be primed to find and fix security vulnerabilities as they are assembling code versus the traditional and less effective approach of relying on security professionals to identify and remediate issues later on in the software lifecycle.

Wathc this SD Times Live! discussion on-demand now to learn how organizations can provide developers clarity of responsibilities and guidance on making the right security and governance choices and using best practices from the get-go.



With the increasing complexity of modern cloud-native applications, enterprise observability is critical to delivering high-quality services. In this webinar we will look behind the term to talk about what enterprise observability brings to operations and DevOps teams.

Attendees also will learn about vital components of Instana’s Enterprise Observability Platform, and more importantly, how those components can help them observe their environments.

In this webinar, we will discuss what makes Enterprise Observability different, including components in three different buckets:

  • Automation

  • Context

  • Intelligent action



A recent study conducted by Aite group found that 97% of financial apps have no protections against decompiling and viewing source code. In fact, of the 4+ million apps in Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store, the majority are not sufficiently protected to stop even the most basic reverse engineering attack. This is especially concerning with faster release and shorter testing cycles creating more frequent opportunities to introduce new vulnerabilities into production.

Apps can be your biggest asset – how can you prevent them from becoming your biggest liability?

With app security expertise in short supply, organizations are often limited to protecting only their most critical apps. Not anymore. New innovations in app security make it easy – and cost-effective – to incorporate app protection into your DevOps pipeline and provide the right level of protection to all your apps.

Join Mike Woodard, Application Protection Product owner at Digital.ai, formerly Arxan Technologies, to learn more about the following:

  • Recent application security breaches and lessons learned
  • A tiered approach to identifying essential levels of app protection needed
  • A risk-based approach to moving from reactive to proactive app protection
  • Best practices for incorporating App Security in all DevOps pipelines



While modernization is essential to staying competitive in today’s IT landscape, businesses are modernizing at a much faster pace than the software needed to keep up with them.

74% of organizations fail to complete legacy system modernization. Whether attempting a full migration to microservices or trying to unwind a dependency on an old, expensive database, some analysis is required.

Having worked on teams modernizing legacy applications to microservices, we’ve noticed the same patterns keep resurfacing. If the data model is relatively clean, modernizing applications is fairly straightforward. If the data model is a mess, what’s built on top of it probably is too.

An application’s data model is its destiny.

Join SD Times and CodeLogic for a discussion focusing on:

  1. Mapping the data-to-code relationships
  2. The impact data models have on the codebase
  3. Why it’s important to understand the data model before modernization



Companies around the world and across a myriad of industries are feeling the pressures of evolving from legacy, on-prem infrastructure to hybrid and cloud-native architectures.

Meanwhile, both B2B and B2C buyers today demand faster delivery—whether of business or consumer-facing services. And with COVID-19 forcing a global shift to remote work, enterprises now have to govern and foster efficient collaboration across distributed teams while delivering reliably and securely.

Join Edith Harbaugh, CEO of LaunchDarkly; Joe Duffy, CEO of Pulumi; and DROdio, CEO of Armory, for a roundtable discussion of how forward-thinking companies are grappling with the challenge of deploying faster, more reliably, and at greater scale.

Shifting testing left is an effective technique to ensure application quality doesn’t suffer as the page of software delivery quickens. But how do you test smaller chunks of work rapidly and earlier in the SDLC without stressing your internal teams? And why use your highly skilled developers and testers to validate the functionality of new code when their time is better spent on higher value tasks? Hear the discussion of how to ensure the entire in-sprint testing process is done quickly and accurately.
