In our inaugural One Key Idea session, we looked at how use pairwise testing to examine combinations of inputs, configuration values, types of data, and the like.

This is a great technique when the interaction between these factors is unpredictable. However, in some cases, specific business rules govern these interactions.

How can we model these business rules and use that model

to develop a reasonable set of tests?

Simple: decision tables.

In this One Key Idea session, Rex will explain the basics of this fundamental technique.

Integrating data silos using traditional databases and tools is a painfully slow and expensive process. What’s worse—relational integration literally keeps the value of the data hidden.

An operational data hub (ODH) built on a multi-model database can integrate data from multiple sources, in multiple formats, far faster. Because of its ability to handle real time data plus analytic data, an ODH becomes an essential pattern to transform data into valuable assets.

In this webcast MarkLogic CTO Ken Krupa will discuss how an operational data hub functions and leverages multiple models. You will learn:

  • How an ODH allows you to integrate dozens or even hundreds of data silos
  • How Operational “run your business” and Analytic “see your business” functions can be consolidated
  • How a multi-model database speeds up data preparation from multiple sources
  • What role the ODH plays in your infrastructure.
  • How an ODH supports data governance

Presenter: Ken Krupa (LinkedIn profile) Enterprise CTO at MarkLogic, has 25+ years IT experience with a unique breadth and depth of expertise. Ken has worked for and consulted at some of the largest Global Financial institutions, with Sun Microsystems and he served as Chief Architect of GFI Group, a Wall St. inter-dealer brokerage, for four years leading up to the company’s IPO. Currently Ken leads a team of CTOs who are responsible for leading MarkLogic’s growth strategies Ken also remains active with technology in a hands-on way. Today Ken  pursues the study of applying purely declarative, rules-based logic frameworks to complex business and IT problems.

Online Webinar  – Recorded April 5th 2015

Provider: RequirementsWizard

In this Introduction to Business Analysis demo session, you will learn the fundamentals of business analysis discipline, role of a business analyst, how our training program is structured and most importantly how Requirements Wizard can help you transform your career into a successful business analyst role.

In today’s competitive environment, business analyst’s role is no longer of simply ‘A bridge between Business and IT’. T

here has been a paradigm shift in the role of business analyst in recent years.

In today’s resource scare environment, customers expect business analyst to have knowledge and skills to conduct enterprise analysis, perform end-to-end business processes re-engineering, identify bottlenecks in their value streams, and most importantly develop solutions that would solve their problems and integrate their vision-strategy-technology towards a common organizational goal.

Requirements elicitation and documenting them is a very small subset of a modern day business analyst’s role.

This course has been specifically designed keeping in mind the expectations customers have from a seasoned business analyst.

In addition to the business analysis skills, project management skills are equally vital for a business analyst. Since the natural career trajectory of a business analyst curve towards project management discipline, this course has included key topics of project management as well, which in a ‘real-world’ scenario, any experienced business analyst must be familiar with.

Note: This session is designed for any individual with IT/Non-IT background who aspires to make their career in business analysis discipline.

InnerSource is an emerging software development paradigm, aiming to use and adapt Open Source development models within the boundaries of an organization.

InnerSource has been shown to produce benefits of increased R&D efficiency, improved innovation, higher software quality and better talent acquisition and retention.

With that said, implementing InnerSource within an organization is not easy. There are many dimensions and parameters that can impact a smooth implementation such as changing corporate culture, shifting manager mindsets, measuring success, forging consensus, and accommodating customer-committed delivery dates.

Challenges for InnerSource include:

  • How do you change your corporate culture?
  • How do you measure successful implementation?
  • How do you change the mindset of middle managers?
  • How do you forge consensus for software component requirements across two or more different business lines?
  • How can you accommodate customer-committed delivery dates into a paradigm based on open source methods?

A panel of 10 experts from Nokia, Bosch, PayPal, CA Tecnologies, Bitergia, OpenSource Development Experts, the Irish Software Research Centre & University of Limerick  are tackling these challenges and more with InnerSource Patterns.

Learn:

  • What InnerSource patterns are and how they solve specific problems within an organization.
  • How to implement two patterns—Common Requirements and 30 Day Warranty—and discuss answers to new InnerSource challenges by creating “donut” patterns.
  • Understand how you can contribute to and learn from the InnerSource Patterns group on Github and Slack.
