Stress-free Continuous Delivery Using Sensible Information Radiators

We successfully completed another great webinar as a part of BizDevOps Master Webinar Series. Vivek Ganesan shared his view on “Stress-free Continuous Delivery Using Sensible Information Radiators”.

The recording is now available!

About the topic: When teams deliver increments of working software using a continuous delivery pipeline, it becomes important to close the feedback loop by letting the team members know as soon as possible when something fails. Vivek spoke about the mechanism of human response and how taking some extra care in designing information radiators can optimize the response time of human beings to anything wrong happening in the delivery pipeline.

View the webinar recording for the following key takeaways:
1. Differences between Information Radiator and it’s evil-twin Information Refrigerator
2. A systematic view of human cognition

Implementing a Comprehensive Testing Strategy for Fast Delivery-BizDevOps Master Webinar Series

Implementing a Comprehensive Testing Strategy for Fast Delivery

By Vincent FUCHS, Technical Coach – Societe Generale Global Solution Centre

The Webinar ‘Implementing a Comprehensive Testing Strategy for Fast Delivery’, was successfully conducted on 08th Feb 2017. This was the 1st episode of the BizDevOps webinar series. The webinar was conducted by Vincent Fuchs, who has almost 12 years of experience in the IT industry, catering to structured finance domain for Société Générale.

Vincent offered some expert insights on how to ‘build the product right’ and how to efficiently test an application, whether legacy or green field. The webinar focused on applications which grow very fast with features to be validated each time, but in parallel, teams face pressure from business to deliver continuously. The webinar also highlighted how a sound, highly automated, testing strategy can help teams to bring together two seemingly opposite forces, to deliver software in which we have a high level of trust.

In case you missed out attending the webinar, below is the recording. Our next webinar will be in March and Mr. Vivek Ganesan of Gainsight is going to share about Designing Information Radiators for Quick Response to Failures in CD Pipeline. We will announce the date shortly!

Announcing the Opening of Our New Office in Bangalore

SolutionsIQ India has taken yet another significant step forward. Our spanking new office on Residency Road is now open and fully functional!

This is a great move for us at several levels including visibility, space and accessibility. We would like to acknowledge all our colleagues and customers whose continuous support has enabled this move.

Situated in the impressive nine-story Prestige Towers on Residency Road, putting us on the main street, looking out onto some prominent land marks of the city, our office is a stone’s throw away from the very popular UB City and Ritz Carlton Hotel. While the old office was in a quieter part of the city, the new office is downtown and puts us in comfortable distance with major business districts, tech parks and a fine network of public transport.

Our new office allowed us to rethink the layout for the growing team and also our wish of having a brighter and flexible work space. With our new work space, we hope to continue to accelerate our growth.

“I can’t be more proud of our Journey in last six years in India. This new office reflects the culture, values and aspirations of SolutionsIQ employees in India. This sets a path for our future as we continue to be a boutique high value provider of Agile and Technology consulting to our customers in India.”, shared Mr. Vibhu Srinivasan, Managing Director, SolutionsIQ India.

While Agile could be the way to ease out this pressure, there is hesitation to set out on an Agile journey due to concerns about distributed large teams governed by regional regulations, prior investments and high cost of errors. Despite these barriers to Agile Adoption, more companies are slowly turning towards Agile Development Methodologies.

We will explore how far we can push the curve when this industry has high regulatory, compliance and data security needs.
