This year I was once again fortunate to attend the HP Discover conference in Las Vegas. As a Vivit Board member, I’m invited to these conferences for meetings with HP executives. As well as this, the Vivit face-to-face board meetings take place in the two days immediately before each conference.
We received some great news at HP Discover in Las Vegas, as it was announced that Richard Bishop had been elected at President of the Vivit Board of Directors.
We are excited to be going to the annual HP Application Delivery Management SIG. Taking place on the 18th March at The Mondrian Hotel in London; the event is a “must go” if you’re interested in hearing about the latest developments in the ADM software.
We are extremely pleased to announce that we are now partners with HP Software. As a silver level partner, we are one of only a handful of performance testing service providers in the UK to have this accreditation.
Trust IV has again been invited to present at a customer session at HP Discover. HP Discover is Hewlett-Packard's showcase technology event for customers and regularly attracts more than 10,000 delegates to the European event, which this year was held in Barcelona.
On Tuesday 18th November, Trust IV will finally be hosting our free performance testing and network virtulisation workshop. The original date in October was postponed due to a potential tube strike.
On Thursday 16th October, Trust IV will be a hosting an afternoon workshop on performance testing and network virtualisation. In association with HP and Vivit, the workshop will be taking place at HP’s Wood Street offices in London.
Over recent weeks, we have been blogging about our new offering, HP LoadRunner in the Cloud (LRITC). We are extremely proud of this product and feel it represents an end to expensive “shelfware” test software. As Chris showed in his most recent post, ”Is Performance Testing As Expensive As You Think?”, this product dispels several myths associated with our field.
I have read and heard about a ‘shift left’ in testing, however I was a little unsure of its impact on performance testing. In an attempt to fill my knowledge void I spoke to two of my colleagues, Richard and James, to get their views on the topic.
Cloud Computing is generally considered to be ideal for short term solutions but not cost effective for lengthy projects or requirements. Equally so Performance Testing has been, and is still regarded as an expensive undertaking. Some approaches may bear these beliefs out, however careful management of your platform combined with cost effective SaaS licensing options means that a Cloud based, year round testing platform can actually become a reality within your business at minimal cost.
