This white paper shows how RTView Monitoring can reduce severity 1 & 2 incidents by up to 80% and improve MTTR. Correlate performance across TIBCO and non-TIBCO technologies for greater operational insight and faster response.

Agile practices help improve development speed and reduce release cycle time. But if testing is still happening late in the dev cycle, it’s harder to find bugs and resolve them by the end of the sprint. To get to shorter and highly innovative release schedules, automated QA cycles should be introduced earlier in the SDLC, or “shifted to the left”. Shifting left is no easy task, so we’ve mapped out how to get you there without impacting your dev cycle. Download the 5 Step Process now to learn:
- Which tests to automate & how to get started
- How to build trust with developers and gain access to the CI workflow
- What to do when a test fails & more
