Often, IT operations teams have no way to predict the impact of such changes pre-deployment, and lack confidence that changes can be deployed without adverse impact to production systems. This trend is more challenging than ever before, with IT operations groups under tremendous pressure to maintain nearly 100 percent application availability. During this Webinar, EMA senior analyst Julie Craig and StackSafe senior product manager Dennis Powell will discuss how IT operations can simplify the task of predicting the impact of changes to the software infrastructure. Topics covered include: — How testing of changes fits into the ITIL V2 and V3 frameworks — The impact of increased distributed applications, such as SOA, on changes and testing — How virtualization technologies are being implemented to improve staging and testing solutions for IT operations teams
