CollabNet to Host Free "Agile ALM for Distributed Development" Virtual Conference

Fully Interactive, Real-Time Conference and Expo to Feature Live Educational Sessions and Discussions About Agile Application Development

BRISBANE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/06/10 -- CollabNet®, the leader in Agile application lifecycle management (Agile ALM), today announced that it is hosting its first-ever live virtual conference and expo, "Agile ALM for Distributed Development," on April 15, 2010. The conference has two tracks: one tailored for a business audience, which will feature sessions such as "Trends, challenges, and success with Agile ALM," and another tailored for a technical audience, which will feature presentations such as "Subversion in the Agile enterprise."

More information about the free conference, including registration information, is at
http://www.open.collab.net/news/events/virtualConf2010. Content from the conference will be available at www.collab.net for 90 days after the event.

Agile ALM platforms enable development teams using Agile, alone or in combination with other methods, to manage all phases of the software development lifecycle, from requirements gathering through release. Agile ALM unites business users and developers, provides cross-team visibility, and enables organizations to reduce their time to market and infrastructure costs while increasing software quality. The CollabNet TeamForge™ platform addresses these challenges both for distributed users and for teams scaling from the workgroup to the enterprise.

WHO:      Keynote speakers include Bill Portelli, chief executive officer,
          and Jack Repenning, chief technology officer, CollabNet.
          Presenters from CollabNet and CollabNet partners Hewlett-Packard
          and Black Duck will lead additional sessions.

WHAT:     CollabNet's "Agile ALM for Distributed Development" Virtual
          Conference and Expo is a free, one-day event for business and
          technical professionals interested in learning how Agile
          technologies can enhance efficiency in an organization. Topics to
          be discussed include Agile, ALM, the CollabNet TeamForge platform,
          open source, governance, Subversion, and cloud computing.

WHEN:     7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. PDT
          Thursday, April 15, 2010

WHERE:    Login information will be sent upon registration.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
