The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2017-07-20T02:26:53Z Global study reveals 80 per cent of businesses missing out on full benefits of continuous testing 2017-07-20T02:26:53Z global-study-reveals-80-per-cent-of-businesses-missing-out-on-full-benefits-of-continuous-testing SYDNEY, July 20, 2017 – Results from a CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) global study reveal that while 75 per cent of organisations highlight continuous testing as critical or important, only a minority of survey respondents have made exceptional progress acquiring the necessary knowledge and key enablers to drive digital transformation. The 20 per cent of survey respondents identified as continuous testing ‘Leaders’ enjoy a boost to software delivery speed, quality and efficiency, resulting in a better return on investments for continuous delivery. According to the study, “Continuous Testing as a Digital Business Enabler”, leaders were: · 2.3x more likely to have succeeded in left-shifting testing activity; · 2.6x more likely to reduce defects by more than 50 per cent; · 2.4x more confident in quality of output; · 1.9x more confident in speed of delivery; and · Leaders were also 3.9x more likely to be working in an organisation exhibiting rapid revenue growth. “As organisations build their modern software factories, it is important not to sacrifice quality in the quest for ever greater speed and efficiency in business growth and success,” said Guiliano Lot, director – solution sales, CA Technologies. “Software quality and testing is becoming everyone’s responsibility and it is incumbent that business and IT management ensure everyone is appropriately enabled – business analysts, developers, release managers and operations professionals all play role in the quality chain.” While 93 per cent of respondents reported testing automation as important, only one in five said they achieved a good level of test automation coverage (80 per cent or more), leaving four out of five still relying heavily on manual processes. The majority of respondents attributed challenges to the lack of automation in almost every aspect of the testing process and tooling; from the generation of test cases, through test execution, to critical activities such as fast, safe and efficient test data management. The importance of automating test data was also highlighted as a top need in ensuring test data is available when needed and avoiding personally identifiable information. Nevertheless, the majority of respondents felt they weren’t efficient in this area, even though it would make it easier to safeguard personal data across both development and testing environments and meet ever stricter data privacy legislation, such as the European Union’s imminent General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Throughout the study, all respondents highlighted the importance of modern methodologies like deploying agile development, continuous delivery, and DevOps. When pressed to prioritise, and call out a singular key to success, 63 per cent of respondents said it is the combination of agile development plus continuous delivery that optimises the effective integration of activities throughout the whole software development lifecycle. Overall, a holistic and balanced approach of both modern practices and tooling are reshaping how software is developed and supporting business transformation across industries.

Siemens Launches Digitalize 2017 to Advance Australia’s Digital Future 2017-07-18T22:00:09Z siemens-launches-digitalize-2017-to-advance-australia-s-digital-future To be held on 30 August in Sydney, the full day conference will showcase the real-world applications of digitalization in energy, infrastructure, industry and the workforce Keynote address by technology thought-leader Steve Vamos, former Chief Executive Officer of Microsoft Australia and Managing Director of Apple Computer Asia Pacific, will explore the behaviours that contribute to a high performing board in an era of constant change. Forum will feature a number of prominent guest speakers including Kumar Parakala, Global Digital Leader, GHD, Stefan Bungart, Head of Digitalization, Siemens Power Generation Services, and others. Siemens today announced that its annual digitalization conference, ‘Digitalize 2017’, will be held at the Sheraton on the Park, Sydney on Wednesday, 30 August 2017. The conference will discuss and debate how digitalization is revolutionising the workforce, industry and the energy and infrastructure sectors. The theme of the conference comes at a critical time, following reports by the Digitisation Index for Australia concluding that despite significant strides made with technology, Australia lacks the digital maturity to compete in an increasingly connected and globalised economy. It also points to a growing gap in the economy between digitally mature firms and less digitally mature firms, with the latter running the risk of being left behind. Providing the keynote address at this year’s forum is renowned technology thought-leader Steve Vamos, former Chief Executive Officer of Microsoft Australia and Managing Director of Apple Computer Asia Pacific. Mr Vamos, currently in the process of writing his first book, has twice been listed by the Australian Financial Review as one of the most influential members of the Australian technology industry. At Digitalize 2017, Mr Vamos will explore the behaviours that contribute to a high performing board in an era of constant change. Mr Vamos is an advocate for Conscious Capitalism and was the founder and President of the Society for Knowledge Economics (SKE), a not for profit think-tank that aimed to encourage and promote new and better leadership and management practices. Mr Vamos will be joined by a number of high-profile speakers including: Kumar Parakala, Global Digital Leader, GHD, the recipient of SEARCC & ACS Digital Disruptors' International Professional of the Year 2016 Award and the Queensland Government Leadership Excellence Award. Mr Parakala will discuss how the efficient use of skills relating to location intelligence, virtual reality, visualisation, and data analytics can optimise processes, resolve challenges, predict future scenarios and make the right business decisions. Stefan Bungart, Head of Digitalization, Siemens Power Generation Services, a passionate entrepreneur and thought leader creating a vision and strategy for the future of digital services, influencing effectively across organisations to drive strategy execution and adoption. Jeff Connolly, Chief Executive Officer, Siemens Australia and New Zealand, the first Australian to hold this position since 1984. Mr Connolly is a member of 11 boards including serving as Chairman of the Prime Minister’s Industry 4.0 Task Force. In addition, he is the Vice President of Australian Industry Group and the founding member of the Australian Advanced Manufacturing Council and member of the Victorian Government Future Industries Ministerial Advisory Council. Speaking about the forum, Mr Connolly said: “Digitalization is the key to success in ‘future-proofing’ Australia’s investments in critical infrastructures and getting the most out of the country’s resources. As the world enters into a fourth industrial revolution driven largely by the merging of automation and digitalization, organisations face a growing challenge of turning data into valuable information that can increase speed and impact of innovation. As a result, Siemens is creating a bridge between real and virtual worlds that will open doors to new opportunities, new ways to compete and for Australia to use its renowned ingenuity. “With operations in 190 countries, Siemens is ideally placed to share knowledge and insights on how companies and industries can realise the full potential of embracing digital technologies to reduce costs, improve efficiencies, increase flexibility and productivity – ultimately becoming more competitive. Digitalize 2017 is a timely reflection of how Australian companies can embrace ingenuity and intelligent technology to expand their local footprint.” This year’s conference, Digitalize 2017 – the second such event Siemens has held in Sydney, Australia – will include discussions across four key themes: Workforce Attracting talent in the digital age The workforce of the future Disruption of education, and implications for the workforce Infrastructure Smart resilient cities Planning and financing for infrastructure investments Intelligent transport systems Energy Australia’s energy transformation Digital services Distributed energy systems Industry The Digital Enterprise Jumping the innovation “Valley of Death” Driving innovation in Food & Beverage ​ For registration and more details see https://www.siemensdigitalize2017.com/ Event details: Date: Wednesday 30 August 2017 Time: 8:30am – 5:00pm, followed by networking drinks Location: Sheraton on the Park, Sydney Registration fees: Early Bird Registration - $150.00 (*Please note that the early bird registration expires on 31st July at midnight) Standard Registration - $250.00 ​ You can also join the discussion on Twitter using #digitalize2017. * Further sessions will be confirmed later.

Nutanix Reboots The Hybrid Cloud With Single OS for the Multi-cloud Era 2017-06-28T23:04:31Z nutanix-reboots-the-hybrid-cloud-with-single-os-for-the-multi-cloud-era Washington, D.C. – June 28, 2017 – NutanixⓇ (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced at its .NEXT Conference 2017 that the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS will be delivered as a full software stack with new multi-cloud capabilities in Nutanix CalmTM and a new cloud service called Nutanix XiTM Cloud Services. The new offerings take a fresh approach to hybrid cloud, empowering customers to use Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Software throughout their multi-cloud deployments, including on-premises with platforms from IBMⓇ, Dell EMCTM, LenovoⓇ, CiscoⓇ and HPEⓇ, in the cloud via AWSTM, Google Cloud PlatformTM and AzureTM, or natively with Nutanix Xi Cloud Services. In the multi-cloud era, data and applications are dispersed not just across enterprise private and public clouds, but also distributed remote office/branch office (ROBO) and disaster recovery (DR) environments, as well as edge computing use cases. Today’s enterprises want to build these diverse deployment options into their end-to-end cloud designs, without disjointed IT operations or lock-in to any one virtualization or cloud stack. A single software OS brings a new approach to unifying these multiple clouds – across the full compute, storage and network stack – which dramatically simplifies operations with common IT tooling, enabling application mobility across clouds, while remaining open to any hardware, hypervisor, or cloud. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS Software Delivered as software, the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS supports a variety of hardware platforms, form factors and third-party vendors, ensuring that a single software fabric with unified management can run across all enterprise environments. The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS extends beyond Nutanix-branded appliances, OEM offerings from Dell EMC and Lenovo and systems from partner IBM to flexible subscriptions and enterprise license agreements (ELAs) on Cisco and HPE platforms. For consumption as a service, IT leaders will be able to leverage Nutanix software as a native cloud-delivered solution via Xi Cloud Services - seamlessly extending the boundaries of their enterprise datacenter while preserving a consistent, simple one-click experience. Nutanix Xi Cloud Services Xi Cloud Services will empower customers to instantly provision and consume Nutanix infrastructure on demand as a native extension of the enterprise datacenter, delivering a turnkey cloud service built from the same infrastructure stack with the same tooling and SLAs as the core Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform. The first available Xi Cloud Service will enable Nutanix customers to set up, manage and test a complete cloud-based DR service in just minutes. Using the same Prism management interface, Nutanix customers can instantly protect their applications and data inline with existing workflows as part of their routine IT operations, avoiding the expense and complexity of a separate DR solution. Nutanix will partner with strategic cloud providers to deliver Xi Cloud Services globally, and to meet the data provenance requirements governing multiple industries and use cases. Nutanix Calm Building and operating a multi-cloud architecture requires that applications can be easily defined, instantiated and scaled independent of the cloud environment. Nutanix Calm abstracts application environments from the underlying infrastructure and recommends the right cloud for the right workload while harmonizing cloud operations. Nutanix Calm will allow applications to be defined via easy-to-use blueprints, which can be provisioned, managed and scaled into different cloud environments. The solution includes a powerful, integrated marketplace so that application designs can be shared across the organization to speed the time to production for new business initiatives. Calm leverages the full stack capabilities of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS across network, compute and storage to holistically converge enterprise infrastructures on AHV, ESXi, Hyper-V, extended to Xi Cloud Services, as well as public clouds including AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Azure. Product Availability The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS is now available as a software-only offering for popular platforms from Cisco and HPE. Nutanix Calm is planned to be available for sale by calendar Q4 2017. Nutanix Xi Cloud Services for disaster recovery are planned to be offered for early access by calendar Q1 2018. Supporting Quotes: “We see the next decade as the 'decade of coexistence' where there will be a shift of enterprise workloads spread across both traditional environments and public/private ‘multi-clouds,’” said Gary Gauba, Chief Enterprise Relationship Officer and President, Advanced Solutions Group in CenturyLink’s IT & Managed Services business unit. “From our perspective, a converged environment that is highly automated and optimized for workloads – which also provides simplified steady-state management and predictive scaling – will be what drives the business.” "With enterprise architectures encompassing multiple clouds, having a software-driven fabric is imperative for driving efficient IT operations,” Clint Augustine, Senior Director, IT, The Home Depot. “Nutanix has an impressive track record for delivering powerful software solutions that run across different platforms and is well positioned to help us continue to reduce costs and deliver higher value.” “Having an infrastructure strategy that covers on-premises data centers and public cloud without also taking edge and distributed environments into consideration is no longer acceptable for modern businesses,” said Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Enterprise Storage and Converged Infrastructure, IDC. “With its Enterprise Cloud OS, Nutanix is once again offering a compelling vision for enterprise infrastructure that aligns with the needs of this new multi-cloud era.” “Multi-cloud IT strategies require much more than today’s first generation hybrid cloud architectures, which force companies to provision and manage separate IT silos” said Sunil Potti, Chief Product and Development Officer, Nutanix. “The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS enables ubiquitous consumption of simple, delightful cloud services across any enterprise infrastructure and will be expanded with Nutanix Calm to deliver a consistent experience across all cloud environments, while new Nutanix Xi Cloud Services will enable enterprise apps to be consumed as a service without burdensome ‘forklift’ operations - making lift-and-shift a thing of the past.” ### Forward-Looking Statements This press release includes forward-looking statements, including but not limited to statements concerning our plans and expectations relating to product features and technology that are under development or in process and capabilities of such product features and technology, our plans to introduce product features in future releases, the implementation of our products on additional hardware platforms, strategic partnerships that are in process, product performance, competitive position and potential market opportunities.

Dell Boomi’s Latest Release Builds on Cloud Integration Platform to Drive Digitally Connected Experiences with Customers, Partners and Suppliers 2017-06-21T04:31:56Z dell-boomi-s-latest-release-builds-on-cloud-integration-platform-to-drive-digitally-connected-experiences-with-customers-partners-and-suppliers ROUND ROCK, Texas, June 20, 2017 – Dell Boomi™ (Boomi) announced the availability of the Spring 2017 release of the industry’s most robust and comprehensive cloud-native, enterprise integration platform to move, manage, govern and orchestrate data across hybrid IT architectures. The latest release enables Boomi customers to more efficiently connect everything and enable everywhere, with new, no code application integration accelerators, new features to fortify DevOps at enterprise scale, and improve data governance and security. “Today’s enterprise organization needs to create digitally connected experiences with customers, partners, and suppliers in order to stay ahead of the competition and remain relevant,” said Chris McNabb, CEO of Boomi. “Integration teams are under ever increasing pressure to make this happen at an accelerated pace. With this release, our platform provides organizations with the industry’s most comprehensive and robust integration foundation for rapidly building a digital business that’s smarter, better and faster.” Boomi’s Spring 2017 release includes more than 150 features that have been added to the market-leading Boomi integration platform as a service (iPaaS) over several months and are now generally available. Highlights include the following. Low and No Code Integration Accelerators Boomi accelerates implementations by providing a drag-and-drop data integration and application development environment, pre-built tools and reusable components, including: Workflow Automation - In March 2017, Boomi acquired ManyWho, a low-code development platform for building and deploying workflow applications, making Boomi the most comprehensive cloud-native integration and application development platform to accelerate digital transformation. The latest release allows an application developer to easily invoke a Boomi integration process within a workflow. No Code, Pre-built Integration Templates - Boomi offers citizen integrator support with 12 additional processes for the Boomi Process Library. The Boomi Process Library provides proven examples created by Boomi experts that any Boomi user can choose as a starting point to build their integration. Support for PaaS Integration - Boomi easily integrates with leading PaaS vendors and provides comprehensive support for PaaS solution integration. This release offers new connectors for Azure, AWS and Google. B2B Trading Partner Common Components - Three new types of EDI components provide increased reusability of common data among Trading Partners. Re-using common components increases flexibility, reduces duplication and simplifies updates. This saves time and development effort, especially for organizations with varied businesses, organizations growing through acquisition, as well as conglomerates and organizations with semi-autonomous business units. Fortified DevOps Features DevOps teams are looking for the ability to simplify and automate the delivery and deployment of applications and integrations, allowing organizations to focus more of their resources on innovation. Boomi’s fortified DevOps features provide new, robust enterprise capabilities, while reducing the complexity associated with IT operations, including: Docker Container Deployment - Easily create pre-configured containers. Docker containers simplify and provide flexibility to spin up and down instances of Boomi with pre-defined configurations to increase developer productivity and speed up application integration. Programmatic Onboarding for Trading Partners - Simplifies and speeds up onboarding, dramatically reducing the time required from weeks and days to hours and making the setup error-free. Data Stewardship Independence - Four new platform Quarantine API endpoints enable resolution actions outside of Boomi Master Data Management (MDM). This means data stewards can work in other applications, including cloud applications like Slack, to streamline governance tasks and approvals. Dynamic Integration Processes - With Boomi’s Process Route Shape feature, users can break down multi-step processes into smaller, independent functional groups and dynamically execute sub-processes. This independence between the main process, sub-process, and routing rules enables reusability of repeated logic and actions, and facilitates seamlessly updating and testing integrations. Data Governance and Security Organizations need technologies that provide ease of use to accelerate digital initiatives, while offering appropriate controls for the business units they support. Customers need to enforce the right data governance and security models that ensure compliance with business policies, contracts and regulations. Boomi’s latest release includes: Automated Data Governance - Data source rankings ensure that each Boomi MDM golden record is from the most trusted source system and propagated across all systems. Data stewards can easily enforce governance policies with automatic updates to all golden records when the data model and associated business rules are changed. Identity Management - With Boomi API Management developers can now leverage third party Authentication Sources to support OAuth 2.0 and SAML authentication use cases. API Policy Management - With an unlimited number of API calls, an organization can be vulnerable to Denial of Service (DoS) attacks and potentially overwhelm or tax the infrastructure. Boomi API Management allows for the configuration of policies to define a Contract. These Contracts can be coupled with entitlement tiers (i.e. Gold, Silver, or Bronze) as a mechanism for API providers to define expected service levels across their customer base. Additionally, with Quota, Rate Limit and Throttling functionality, the API Provider can limit the number of API calls for a specific time period.

Australian organisations not setup to predict the risk of security breaches before they occur 2017-06-19T06:01:41Z australian-organisations-not-setup-to-predict-the-risk-of-security-breaches-before-they-occur SYDNEY, 19 June, 2017 – Australian organisations are lagging behind their regional counterparts when it comes to having security controls that are adaptive based on risk, with few able to anticipate the risk of a breach before it occurs. This highlights a significant disconnect with the fact that more than half of Australian organisations believe that the number of security breaches has increased in the last 12 months. In a global study by CA Technologies; The Security Imperative: Driving Business Growth in the App Economy, a low 37 per cent of Australian organisations reported employing proactive or predictive processes to detect data breaches; a stark comparison to our regional counterparts in Singapore, (75 per cent) and Korea (60 per cent). Further, 21 per cent of Australian organisations say that their approach to detecting data breaches only includes an ‘occasional review of activity reporting’. “There’s no doubt that good identity-centric security strategy helps a business to accelerate its digital transformation journey. With data breaches becoming more frequent and more mature, identity-centric security needs to be incorporated right from day one, as a core technology enabler rather than bolted on as an IT afterthought,” said Teng Sherng Lim, vice president, Security, CA Technologies, Asia Pacific and Japan. When it comes to identity and access management (IAM), none of the Australian organisations surveyed said their controls are adaptive based on risk, with the majority of controls being centralised or automated (67 per cent) and the remaining 33 per cent employing manual controls. A correlation can be drawn between these figures and the impact of IT security efforts on business KPIs with Australia’s results again, by-and-large below the regional average. In particular, the areas of employee productivity (37 per cent), customer satisfaction (40 per cent), operational efficiency (35 per cent) and importantly business growth (41 per cent) paint a picture of little improvements. “Disruptions – and in this case security breaches – are coming to every industry. For Australian organisations to succeed and in fact last, they need to be built it to change. This means not only keeping up, but constantly innovating and continuously improving. Employing advanced identity-centric security isn’t optional, it’s imperative,” said Lim. The number of compliance audit failures was also reported to have improved by only 35 per cent based on IT security efforts, which compares starkly to Thailand at 57 per cent. On a regional level, those with advanced identity-centric security reported a 35 per cent decrease in breaches, compared to only 12 per cent of basic users. Additionally, advanced users of identity-centric security that have seen a decline in breaches have been much more proactive in preventing breaches through increased investment and focusing on mobile devices and apps.

LogMeIn makes digital customer service smarter; takes aim at CRM market with introduction of Bold360 2017-06-09T00:00:00Z logmein-makes-digital-customer-service-smarter-takes-aim-at-crm-market-with-introduction-of-bold360 SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 9 June 2017 – LogMeIn, Inc. (NASDAQ:LOGM) today introduced Bold360, an intelligent customer engagement platform that provides a modern, flexible way for companies to interact with customers and get a real-time 360-degree view of all touchpoints and contextual data in a single solution.  Through a powerful combination of popular digital engagement channels, support tools, and a unified interface, Bold360 is taking on the traditional customer service market by bridging the gap between the customer and vital business information; helping companies deliver the immediate and personalised experience today’s consumers expect.   “The rise of digital, artificial intelligence and mobile-first lifestyles has changed how customers want to interact with their favourite brands,” said Mary Wardley, Program Vice President, Loyalty and Customer Care, IDC.  “As a result, companies need to rethink how they approach customer service to stay competitive.  Offering a variety of engagement channels is just the beginning.  The experience – whether automated or agent-assisted – needs to be seamless and the information contextual, to deliver the type of experience that will create long-term brand loyalty.”   According to a recent report from Gartner entitled The Eight Building Blocks of CRM: Data and Information (July 2016), there are a handful of key challenges when it comes to an organisation’s CRM strategy.  Specifically, they cite that “creating, maintaining and leveraging a single view of the customer is hard to achieve internally and the required capabilities are not provided by many CRM vendors. Many solutions fail to consider the myriad of channels used by customers to interact with organisations”.   Legacy customer service and CRM systems house only a small portion of customer data across various disparate systems, making it hard for companies to ever get a full picture of their customers.  Bold360 is addressing this challenge by combining the rich customer profiles and actionable data agents need with the fast, frictionless service customers have come to expect.  Intelligent automation also empowers customers with self-service tools, thereby eliminating routine tasks from the agent workflow to improve contact centre efficiencies and deliver the type of customer experiences that build loyalty.   “The future of customer service lies in being able to create a truly exceptional and meaningful experience for customers”, said Michael Blaine, Senior Director, Customer Service at VF Corporation.  “Utilising technology to understand your customers while providing easily accessible and real-time information to your agents can help deliver a truly unique and personalised experience.  Bold360 is an exciting first step toward this vision and we are excited to see where LogMeIn takes it in the future.”   With today’s release Bold360 includes: An intuitive interface - Empowers agents with the information needed to resolve issues quickly by consolidating data from different systems and presenting a unified view of all customer interactions. Agents can work across different channels while seeing a complete history of all interactions for the customer they are assisting.   No code integrations – Easily integrate popular business systems including Salesforce and Zendesk, to provide that information directly into the Bold360 agent interface, without needing to toggle between applications. World-class omni-channel engagement – Seamlessly engage with customers across a variety of channels including live chat, Facebook Messenger, email and more.  Bold360 offers the right engagement for the level of support needed without clunky handoffs and preserves the context of conversations across channels to help agents address issues quickly.  Intelligent automation -- Helps agents respond to commonly asked questions with the ability to create, curate and manage answers.  The system gets smarter over time and can be applied to self-service interactions or to inform agents in an assisted interaction.  Remote support – With features including remote control, file transfer and co-browsing, agents can seamlessly escalate visitors to remote support all in one interface to drive efficiency and quickly resolve customer issues.  “There is a significant white space when it comes to engagement capabilities of traditional CRM tools,” said Paddy Srinivasan, General Manager, Customer Engagement and Support Solutions.  “As customer expectations change, the old way of managing customer interactions will no longer suffice.  Bold360 not only helps businesses interact with their customers, but also builds intelligent & actionable profiles that help brands offer the right recommendation at the right time based on all the information about that customer – not just a small subset based on past interactions.  As Bold360 continues to evolve and capabilities expand, those customer profiles will continue to get richer and will serve as an essential tool for customer service organisations everywhere.”  Pricing and availability Bold360 is available today.  Pricing depends on deployment size and use case.  Additional resources: Website Blog: Introducing Bold360: Making Digital Customer Service Smarter Demo Video ###  LogMeIn’s customer engagement & support portfolio LogMeIn delivers industry leading solutions designed to empower knowledge workers to deliver more human, personalised and intelligent customer engagement and support across all digital channels and devices that drives increased satisfaction, engagement and productivity.  More than 50,000 companies rely on LogMeIn’s customer engagement portfolio to support 200 million customer interactions every year.  About LogMeIn, Inc.
