HP為雲端加快應用程式創新

HP以整合應用程式及營運解決方案支持DevOps計劃
» English

香港,2012年6月11日 — HP今天宣佈推出強化產品提高在開發、測試、基礎架構及營運團隊之間的協作,協助機構打破IT孤島,讓他們能迅速為混合及雲端環境提供高質素及創新的應用程式。

更新版的 HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) HP Performance Center (PC)讓機構能以全新Lab Management Automation及Continuous Application Performance Delivery的特性,透過持續交付應用程式,從而推動企業創新。

機構面對持續的壓力,以提供具成效的創新應用程式。與此同時,機構需要應用程式能於其整個生命週期中適應不斷轉變的要求。例如,應用程式性能或因用戶在流動設備上或雲端內之應用程式互動而改變。

為實現持續交付高質素的應用程式,機構正採納DevOps──強調在應用程式開發、測試、基礎架構及營運團隊之間提高溝通與協作的一套軟件交付慣例(software delivery practices)。DevOps透過一組共同標準及自動化慣例,協助統一IT孤島,讓應用程式及服務能持續交付,以適應不斷變化的企業需求。

更佳可見度以提供高質素應用程式

為提高行政人員對應用程式開發生命週期的可見度,HP推出增強功能的 HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) 11.5 平台。全新產品提供預先設定的報告,關於應用程式進展的持續資訊。此外,HP ALM 11.5與 HP Enterprise Collaboration軟件整合,在應用程式生命週期中支援主要利益相關者之間的社交媒體風格、內容為本的對話。該全新產品讓客戶能夠:

  • 提高應用程式交付團隊之間的協作,從而作出更快及準確的決定。團隊現在可攜手在規定、創立RSS feed通報及就開發狀況、測試運行及缺點上支援進程討論。
  • 透過強化功能的 HP Application Lifecycle Intelligence 2.6提升開發商的效率。HP Application Lifecycle Intelligence 2.6乃HP ALM 的主要元件,除了支援現有的開發工具及整合,亦新增為Git (Git是開放源碼版本控制系統)及源代碼管理軟件的支援。
DevOps協作以提高應用程式質素

全新 HP Performance Center (PC) 11.5 軟件專為測試應用程式性能而設,在與Continuous Application Performance Delivery推出之前,改善應用程式的質素。該新功能讓營運及測試團隊分享實時的性能數據,以用於應用程式性能測試指令碼。此外,客戶亦可:

  • 透過輸入來自 HP Business Service Management軟件及第三方工具的生產監測數據,找出及診斷潛在的性能瓶頸。
  • 透過輸入來自 HP SiteScope的應用程式監測指標,進一步加快測試配置。

HP 亦推出為HP ALM 11.5 及 HP PC 11.5而設的HP Lab Management Automation。該功能藉着測試環境的自動化配置以配合真實情況(例如私有及混合雲端),從而加快高質素應用程式的部署。此舉有助在應用程式生產前,確保理想的表現、功能及安全性。

HP Software Professional Services for Application Lifecycle Management提供諮詢、升級及執行服務,能為HP ALM 11.5上之DevOps縮短時間至符合商業價值。全新的Lab Management Foundation Service讓機構能加快應用程式測試之餘,同時維持應用程式的品質。這些服務可把測試環境的部署及供應,以及編排執行測試時間表的工作自動化。

HP香港軟件部總經理胡顯德表示:「應用程式的創新會受到存在於開發、測試及營運團隊之間的孤島所阻礙,引致延誤、錯失機會及潛在的應用程式缺點。透過從IT運作的資訊及過程整合至應用程式生命週期管理,HP為DevOps提供重要的基礎,讓機構透過創新應用程式的持續交付,從而推動業績增長。」

以更簡單及快速的指令碼改善應用程式測試

全新的測試功能專為支援持續測試而設,可簡化及加快應用程式的測試工作。此外,HP亦推出強化的測試解決方案:

  • HP LoadRunner 11.5負載測試解決方案包含全新Virtual User Generator (VUGen)程式碼編輯器,簡化編寫程式碼之過程,並縮短製作負載測試程式碼的時間。此外,已更新的產品亦支援Internet Explorer 9瀏覽器、HTML5標記語言、64位元運算環境及IPv6的測試。
  • HP Sprinter手動測試解決方案能自動化重複的測試程式碼以作持續使用,令手動測試更快及更具效率。HP Sprinter提供全新的掃瞄功能,免除費力的手動工作,例如拼寫檢查及確保符合本地化的要求。此舉讓測試人員得以集中發展嶄新的測試方法,而非處理行政工作。

Fidelity National Financial的效能自動化主管Andy Nightingale表示:「迅速處理大量的按揭申請是我們成功的關鍵。HP LoadRunner提供無可比擬的負載測試規模,讓Fidelity National Financial可在應用程式投入生產之前,迅速找出性能瓶頸,避免承擔昂貴的部署後問題。」

HP Application Lifecycle Management 解決方案乃HP IT Performance Suite中的主要元件。HP IT Performance Suite是新一代企業性能軟件平台,讓IT管理以營運智能提升性能表現。
