CAD Manager's Column: With the introduction of new workstation technology recently released, it’s time to investigate the latest specifications for CAD.

One of the most asked questions I continue to receive from CAD managers is, “What are the minimum specifications for CAD workstations?” (In addition, the subject is one of the most searched on the Cadalyst.com web site.) This question comes from big company IT personnel, two-man design shops, and all sizes of companies in between. So, in this edition of the CAD Manager’s Newsletter, I’ll update my minimum workstation recommendations for 2022 and explain how I arrived at them in a format that you can send directly to your boss or IT department. Here goes.

Workstation Minimums for 2022 and Beyond

General Workstation Truths

Every time I update workstation recommendations, I find the same two things to be true: Users want faster, more capable workstations and management wants to pay less. Yet with more of us working remotely rather than plugged into a corporate LAN, specifying workstations has become a bit tougher to answer.

Before I get into specifics, let’s lay out a few guidelines that I’ve found to be true:

  • Cheap workstations don’t save you money. They only make your software operate slower and soon become obsolete.
  • Upgrading later usually isn’t cost effective. The idea that you can under configure a machine today and upgrade it next year is usually fool’s gold. When you consider how quickly technology changes and consider the IT labor required to upgrade anything other than an SSD or maybe a graphics card, it just doesn’t make sense.
  • Workstations are dirt cheap and help retain key staff. I see plenty of companies that have 5-year-old boat anchor computers that drive away CAD power users. I recently spoke to one user who said, “If the company can’t shell out $3,000 to update our technology, why would they ever supply me a raise?”

Now that I’ve got that off my chest, let’s get into the specifics.

Processor/Cores

The processor and its cores are the heart and soul of your workstation. If you don’t get this part right, you’ve failed before you start.

The first thing to consider for most CAD programs (think AutoCAD, BricsCAD, Revit, Civil 3D, SOLIDWORKS, etc.) is that processor selection is mostly about frequency (clock rate). CAD applications tend to run on a primary core so it is still better to have fewer, faster cores than more, slower cores. There is a push towards using more cores, but the change isn’t dramatic and likely won’t be for the popular legacy tools mentioned above. And, since most high frequency processors have 8 or more cores anyway, the difference may be moot.

The parameters to consider are the base frequency (the speed of ALL the cores) and boost frequency (the maximum speed for a single core). If you consider that other applications are also running on the computer besides CAD (such as office applications, rendering tools, analysis modules, etc.). we can conclude that the best overall processor/core combination will have the highest base frequency AND the highest boost frequency. So, it would be better to have a 14-core processor at a 3.2GHz base frequency boosted to 5.5GHz than a 16-core processor at a 3.2GHz base frequency boosted to 5.0GHz, for example. For CAD, higher frequencies beat more cores every time.

Lastly, only processors with high amounts of cache and hyper-threading should be considered — this rules out Intel i3/i5 processors. What is left are the highest frequency Intel i7 and Intel i9 processors with the Intel i9’s being preferred.

Intel Core i9-12xxx series processors provide great base (up to 3.2GHz) and boost (up to 5.5GHz) frequencies and are becoming available in a wide variety of machines (even some high-end laptops) but they are slightly more expensive. To save a little money you could step down to the Intel Core i7-12xxx family which clocks in at 3.6GHz and 5.0GHz boost frequencies.

Minimum recommendation: An Intel i7 10700K processor with 8 cores would be considered the absolute minimum at this time, but Intel i9 11900 series processors provide 8 cores running at higher base and boost frequencies and are my suggested for minimum, if possible. These processors are faster (for higher productivity right now) and more capable of handling complex workloads (for updated software later). And, if you’re going to buy a workstation to lasts you for 3 years or more, doesn’t it make sense to buy something that has the latest technology today?

Senior management note: Processor selection is the one thing you can’t upgrade later, so don’t go cheap on your processor — get the higher speed Intel i9.

RAM and SSDs

Having a fast processor is only part of the performance equation because all the other systems in the workstation support the processor so it can operate at its maximum speed. Given the huge model files that CAD software produces, it stands to reason that harmonizing your processor with the right RAM and SSD systems can you get the absolute best performance from your workstation.

Consider the following:

RAM (Memory). If the processor doesn’t have adequate RAM, then it must go back and forth to the system disk to work with data. The data channel speed from the processor to the RAM is optimized to feed the processor at maximum speed where the disk speed can be substantially slower. Therefore, the RAM you install should ALWAYS be the highest speed the processor supports, and all available RAM slots should be populated with the same size RAM modules.

Solid State Disk (SSD). Of course, the processor and RAM must load all the operating system, CAD software, and CAD data from somewhere and that somewhere is the SSD. The fastest available technologies now are NVMe-based SSDs that can read/write data at roughly 3,500/2,300 MB/sec, while older SATA SSDs can only provide read/write speeds of 550/500 MB/sec throughput.

Minimum purchasing recommendations: Buy 32GB of the fastest technology RAM your workstation will support as a practical minimum for CAD. Buy a 1TB NVMe-based SSD as the boot disk so all operating system, software, and current project files are loaded from a fast SSD — secondary storage used for less frequent access can use cheaper SSD drives. These peripherals will squeeze every bit of power out of your processor for the entire life of the workstation.

Upgrade recommendations: Bump the RAM up to 64GB for high-end power users and consider the latest NVMe drives like the Samsung 980 PRO that approach read/write speeds of 7,000/5,000 MB/sec. Finally, installing multiple SSDs in a RAID configuration can also spread the load across two drives which drives speed up even more.

Senior management note: Buying the RAM and SSD systems specified will supply you awesome performance for years to come without having to replace any components or spending IT time on upgrades. DO NOT SKIMP on RAM and SSD components — buy the right components now and be done with it for the life of the machine.

Graphics Processors (GPUs)

Which GPU (often referred to as a graphics card) to purchase is always a subject of debate and vendor spin but the good news is it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Here are some general questions you need to answer for yourself to decide on which GPU to specify:

  • What resolution monitors will you use? Be sure the GPU can handle higher resolution 4K monitors (3,840 x 2,160).
  • How many monitors will you use? Be sure the GPU can support your typical requirements which for CAD is at least two high-resolution monitors today. Be sure the connectors on the GPU (HDMI or DisplayPort) are compliant with your needs and/or legacy monitors.
  • What software will you use? Purchasing a GPU that is certified for your software applications could reduce configuration glitches and problems — particularly for rendering software. But be aware that software changes rapidly and so do GPU certifications.
  • Consider “gaming” GPUs from reputable companies like AMD or NVIDIA to get more bang for the buck. A exact poll of CAD managers I conducted showed 9 out of 10 had used less expensive gaming GPUs for CAD with no problems.
  • Will you be doing principally 2D work, 3D work, 3D work with animations, etc.? As tasks move from 2D up to 3D with animations, the amount of GPU memory required will go up. While a base level 8GB GPU would be fine for most Revit/SOLIDWORKS workflows today, more could be required if real time animation and visualizations are required.

Minimum purchasing recommendations: Identify the GPU that supports the software applications you run now then buy the next model up — an 8GB gaming GPU like an NVIDIA GeForce 3060 is a great value for the money. And, should software needs change, you CAN upgrade a GPU — unlike processors.

Upgrade recommendations: Bump the GPU up for aggressive 3D application users that create videos, renderings, or training content.

Senior management note: If you need to cut costs on new workstations the GPU is one place to do it because general CAD/BIM users don’t need a super expensive GPU. The RAM and SSD specifications are much more important than GPUs, so do not even think about buying an expensive GPU without getting the minimum 32GB RAM and 1TB SSD recommended above.

What About Laptops?

The remote CAD worker environment brought on by COVID means more of us are using a laptop as our CAD workstation. So, what are the minimum specifications for a laptop workstation? 

Simply put a CAD-capable laptop should be configured just like a desktop CAD workstation. Of course, a similarly equipped laptop will cost more than its desktop equivalent, but the performance can be just as good. There are a few caveats I’d like to mention:

  • Laptops aren’t easy to upgrade or expand, so it is crucial to buy a robust machine that’ll serve you well for 3 years.
  • Tasks that require more than 64GB or RAM and multiple GPUs like video rendering or training material production are still better suited to an expandable desktop machine.
  • Be sure the laptop can drive an external high-resolution monitor.
  • Be sure the laptop has a high-speed Thunderbolt interface port so an external dock can be used for expansion if needed.

Minimum purchasing recommendations: High speed i7 processor, 32GB RAM, 1TB NVMe SSD, and 6GB GPU that supports high resolution external second monitors.

Upgrade recommendations: High speed i9 processor, 64MB RAM, add a second high-capacity SSD, highest rated graphics available for the machine.

Senior management note: Laptops for CAD should be viewed as a high-performance workstation, not a cheap way to check email. If your CAD users are home-based, they need a powerful machine — so don’t hamper them with a cheap laptop.

Plan to Recycle

Remember that today’s high-performance desktop or laptop will be a great general performance machine in 2 or 3 years. The trick is to view each workstation you buy as having two lifetimes — a CAD life and a general-purpose life — so you can make machines serve you for 5 years before they are retired.

CAD/BIM/rendering machines are the highest performance machines you’ll purchase, so doesn’t it make sense to replace them every 2 to 3 years and then repurpose the old CAD machines for their second life? Your IT department will like this idea, so be sure to bring it up as part of your purchasing proposal.

Summing Up

I’ve seen way too many expensive engineers and architects waste countless hours working on old, slow workstations that simply aren’t up to running today’s CAD applications. I’ve also seen too many companies buy new workstations that are functionally obsolete from the start. In both cases I always ask the question, “Why is it OK to waste a $90,000 a year engineer’s time to save $3,000 on a workstation?” Ask this question repeatedly if anyone argues with your CAD workstation specifications and watch the game change.

Now that you know what you should be buying, the technical reasons for doing so and how to explain it to your boss and IT departments go get your new CAD workstations! In fact, send them this newsletter and have them email me because I’ve got your back. Until next time.

Killexams : IT career roadmap: Director of engineering

A director of engineering oversees and guides an organization's engineering department, including ensuring that engineering goals line up with the organization’s mission and priorities. In many cases, these executives are involved in administrative, financial, and human resource functions within the department.

The duties of a director of engineering vary among enterprises in terms of scope of responsibilities, according to leading job site Indeed.com. Some common responsibilities include overseeing teams, managing departmental budgets, designing engineering strategies, verifying project compliance with engineering best practices, hiring department engineers, collaborating with company stakeholders, and updating department policies and procedures.

Nina Bhatti: Director of Engineering IDG

Nina Bhatti is a director of engineering for Google Cloud Platform.

Engineering directors also have different duties based on their specialty, according to Indeed. Aside from engineering, these executives must possess skills of critical reasoning, leadership, stress management, communication, and team collaboration.

To find out what’s involved in becoming a director of engineering, we spoke with Nina Bhatti, a director of engineering at Google Cloud Platform.

Educational trajectory

Bhatti attended the University of California, Berkeley, and majored in computer science and mathematics. She then attended the University of Arizona, where she earned a Master of Science degree and PhD in computer science. She wrote her dissertation on networking protocols for fault-tolerant distributed systems.

Like many other technology professionals, Bhatti did not originally plan to establish a career in the field. “I arrived at U.C. Berkeley thinking that I would major in biology, but had taken some programming in high school and used it when I was an intern working in biology research,” she says. “I took computer science and really enjoyed learning about the concepts and the power of being able to build something I just imagined. The classes were intriguing, and I found myself much more interested in building than learning biology facts.”

Killexams : Facebook parent Meta posts first revenue decline in history

Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, posted its first revenue decline in history Thursday, dragged down by a drop in ad spending as the economy falters — and as competition from rival TikTok intensifies.

The results largely followed a broader decline in the digital advertising market that is dinging Meta rivals such as Google, Twitter — which also posted a revenue decline — and Snap. Google's parent company Alphabet reported its slowest quarterly growth in two years on Tuesday.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Meta is slowing its pace of investments and plans to “steadily reduce” employee growth after a hiring blitz earlier this year.

“This is a period that demands more intensity," he said in a conference call with analysts. “Expect us to get more done with fewer resources."

Beyond the economic downturn, Meta faces some unique challenges, including the looming departure of its chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, the chief architect of the company's massive advertising business.

In addition to TikTok, the decline in ad spending among the downturn and Apple’s privacy changes, “questions about Meta’s leadership” — including Sandberg’s exit and negative sentiment about the company as a whole — also contributed to the decline, said Raj Shah, a managing partner at digital consultancy Publicis Sapient.

Meta earned profits of $6.69 billion, or $2.46 per share, in the April-June period. That's down 36% from $10.39 billion, or $3.61 per share, in the same period a year ago.

Revenue was $28.82 billion, down 1% from $29.08 billion a year earlier.

Analysts, on average, were expecting earnings of $2.54 per share on revenue of $28.91 billion, according to a poll by FactSet.

“The year-over-year drop in quarterly revenue signifies just how quickly Meta’s business has deteriorated," said Insider Intelligence analyst Debra Aho Williamson in an email. “Prior to these results, we had forecasted that Meta’s worldwide ad revenue would increase 12.4% this year, to nearly $130 billion. Now, it’s unlikely to reach that figure."

She added that the good news — if it could be called that — is that Meta's competitors are also experiencing slowdowns.

Meta is in the midst of a corporate transformation that it says will take years to complete. It wants to evolve from a provider of social platforms to a dominant power in a nascent virtual reality construct it calls the “metaverse" — sort of like the internet brought to life, or at least rendered in 3D. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has described it as an immersive virtual environment, a place people can virtually “enter” rather than just staring at a screen. The company is investing billions in its metaverse plans that will likely take years to pay off — and as part of its plan renamed itself Meta last fall.

Killexams : Hawley, Cruz escape Jan. 6 probe, have no regrets over role

WASHINGTON (AP) — The week before the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, Missouri's Josh Hawley became the first Republican senator to announce he would object to the certification of the 2020 election.

Texas' Ted Cruz came next, dashing off his own plan on a flight from Houston to Washington days before the joint session of Congress to certify the election results.

In all, a dozen GOP senators initially planned to challenge Joe Biden's victory. But unlike their House GOP counterparts who have been subpoenaed for testimony before the Jan. 6 committee, the Republican senators have largely escaped the reach of the investigation.

While the committee did share highlights about the senators, including Hawley's raised-fist salute to the rioters that day — an image seared in history, and now on coffee mugs the senator sells — it has made the surprising, if pragmatic, decision not to call the senators for testimony. One dramatic video showed Hawley sprinting from the Senate chamber later that day as rioters swarmed.

Amid wider public scrutiny of Jan. 6, the senators have been left to explain their actions on their own terms, and have often done so defiantly.

“I do not regret it,” Hawley said to applause at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit in Tampa, Florida, after he strode to the stage Friday to a standing ovation.

As the summer hearings of the Jan. 6 committee come to a close, Chairman Bennie Thompson has indicated that the panel is looking elsewhere. As work continues, the investigation is moving closer to the top ranks of the White House and the defeated president’s inner circle.

“We continue to receive new information every day,” Thompson, D-Miss., said last week, announcing the next round of hearings in September. “We are pursuing many additional witnesses for testimony.”

The House committee is investigating not only the grisly attack on the Capitol, but Trump's extraordinary effort to overturn the presidential election by submitting “fake” slates of electors from the battleground states to vote for him, not Biden, when Congress convened Jan. 6 to tally the 2020 presidential election results.

The senators could provide information about the run-up to Jan. 6, including any conversations they may have had with Trump and his lawyers who were putting together the plan for the fake electors, said Norm Eisen, a senior fellow at Brookings and former top adviser to Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee.

In one dramatic screenshot of a text exchange, the committee told the story of how a top aide for GOP Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin attempted to hand off a slate of false, pro-Trump electors to then-Vice President Mike Pence as he was presiding in his ceremonial role of certifying the election. Johnson has said he was not involved in that effort.

But having interviewed more than 1,000 witnesses and having issued rare subpoenas to fellow House lawmakers, Eisen said the panel is trying to preserve its political capital by declining to compel senators to testify in what would be seen as an unusual House challenge to the upper chamber.

The Jan. 6 committee’s decision to issue subpoenas to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California and Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Andy Biggs of Arizona and Mo Brooks of Alabama was a show of force by the nine-member panel. And it came after much deliberation among the lawmakers, who for weeks considered whether taking the unprecedented step of subpoenaing members of their own chamber would be worth further inflaming partisan tensions over the 2021 attack.

“They only have so much committee time,” said Eisen.

Cruz declined to say Tuesday if he would have appeared had the Jan. 6 panel asked for his testimony. Hawley's office has similarly said he wouldn't want to address a hypothetical situation.

But in exact conversations, the Republicans have stood by their efforts to challenge Biden's victory.

“This country would have been much better off” if Congress had taken up his plan, Cruz recently told The Associated Press.

Cruz had proposed forming a commission to audit voter fraud in the disputed states, even though Trump's own Justice Department said there was no voter fraud on a scale that could have tipped the 2020 election. Dozens of court cases claiming fraud had been rejected or gone unheard.

Killexams : Britney Can Skip Deposition by Dad’s Lawyers, Judge Rules

Britney Spears will not have to answer questions from her father’s legal team under oath, a Los Angeles judge ruled Wednesday. The pop star’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart, argued that his client had been “traumatized” by her 13-year conservatorship, and speaking under oath would only serve to re-traumatize her. What’s more, Spears would have little relevant information to contribute, Rosengart added, saying that the attempt to force her to speak was “retaliatory.” Judge Brenda Penny ruled that Spears’ answers would not be needed for her father, Jamie Spears, to effectively argue a defense. Relevant testimony, she said, could be gleaned from other sources. The decision comes less than a month after Jamie’s attorney, Alex Weingarten, asked to depose Britney on the “incendiary allegations of various factual matters” she has made over social media about her father, who managed her conservatorship. Wednesday’s order comes as a blow to the elder Spears, as did Penny’s ruling earlier this month that compels Jamie to sit for questioning by mid-August about his handling of his daughter’s estate, as well as claims that he surveilled her.

Killexams : ALM techniques can help keep your apps in play

For developers and enterprise teams, application life-cycle management in today’s development climate is an exercise in organized chaos.

As movements such as agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery have created more hybrid roles within a faster, more fluid application delivery cycle, there are new definitions of what each letter in the ALM acronym means. Applications have grown into complex entities with far more moving parts—from modular components to microservices—delivered to a wider range of platforms in a mobile and cloud-based world. The life cycle itself has grown more automated, demanding a higher degree of visibility and control in the tool suites used to manage it all.

Kurt Bittner, principal analyst at Forrester for application development and delivery, said the agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery movements have morphed ALM into a way to manage a greatly accelerated delivery cycle.

“Most of the momentum we’ve seen in the industry has been around faster delivery cycles and less about application life-cycle management in the sense of managing traceability and requirements end-to-end,” said Bittner. “Those things are important and they haven’t gone away, but people want to do it really fast. When work was done manually, ALM ended up being the core of what everyone did. But as much of the work has become automated—builds, workflows, testing—ALM has become in essence a workflow-management tool. It’s this bookend concept that exists on the front end and then at the end of the delivery pipeline.”

Don McElwee, assistant vice president of professional services for Orasi Software, explained how the faster, more agile delivery process correlates directly to an organization’s bottom line.

“The application life cycle has become a more fluid, cost-effective process where time to market for enhancements and new products is decreased to meet market movements as well as customer expectations,” said McElwee. “It is a natural evolution of previous life cycles where the integration of development and quality assurance align to a common goal. By reducing the amount of functionality to be deployed to a production environment, testing and identifying issues earlier in the application life cycle, the overall cost of building and maintaining applications is decreased while increasing team unity and productivity.”

In addition to the business changes taking place in ALM, the advent of agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery has also driven a cultural change, according to Kartik Raghavan, executive vice president of worldwide engineering at CollabNet. He said ALM is undergoing a fundamental enterprise shift from a life-cycle functionality focus toward a delivery process colored more by the consumer-focused value of an application.

“All these movements, whether it’s agile or DevOps or Continuous Delivery, try to take the focus away from the individual pieces of delivery to more of the ownership at an application level,” said Raghavan. “It’s pushing ALM toward more of a pragmatic value of the application as a whole. That is the big cultural change.”

ALM for a new slate of platforms
Bittner said ALM tooling has also segmented into different markets for different development platforms. He said development tool chains are different for everything from mobile and cloud to Web applications and embedded software, as developers deploy applications to everything from a mobile app store to a cloud platform such as Amazon’s AWS, Microsoft’s Azure or OpenStack.

“[Tool chains] often fragment along the technology platform lines,” said Bittner. “People developing for the cloud’s main goal is to get things to market quickly, so they tend to have a much more diverse ecosystem of tools, while mobile is so unique because the technology stack is changing all the time and evolving rapidly.”

Hadi Hariri, developer advocacy lead at JetBrains, said the growth of cloud-based applications and services in particular has shifted customer expectations when it comes to ALM.

“Before, having on-site ALM solutions was considered the de facto option,” he said. “Nowadays, more and more customers don’t want to have to deal with hosting, maintenance [or] upgrades of their tools. They want to focus on their own product and delegate these aspects to service and tool providers.”

CollabNet’s Raghavan said this shift toward a wider array of platforms has changed how developers and ALM tool providers think about software. On the surface, he said he sees cloud, mobile, Web and embedded as different channels for delivering applications.

He said there is more focus when developing and managing an application on changing the way a customer expects to consume an application.

“Each of these channels represents another flavor of how they enable customers to consume applications,” said Raghavan. “With the cloud, that means the ability to access the application anywhere. Customers expect to log into an application and quickly understand what it does. Mobile requires you to build an application that leverages the value of the device. You need an ALM suite that recognizes the different tools needed to deliver every application to the cloud, prepare that application for mobile consumption, and even gives you the freedom to think about putting the app on something like a Nest thermostat.”

What’s in an application?
Applications are becoming composites, according to Forrester’s Bittner, and he said ALM must evolve into a means of managing the delivery of these composite applications and the feedback coming from their modular parts integrated with the cloud.

“A mobile application is typically not standalone. It talks to services running in the cloud that talk to other services wrapping legacy systems to provide data,” he said. “So even a mobile application, which sounds like a relatively whole entity, is actually a network of things.”

Matt Brayley-Berger, worldwide product marketing manager of application life cycle and quality for HP, expanded on this concept of application modularity. With a composite application containing sometimes hundreds of interwoven components and services, he said the complexity of building releases has gone up dramatically.

“Organizations are making a positive tradeoff around risk,” he said. “Using all of these smaller pieces, the risk of a single aspect of functionality not working has gone down, but now you’re starting to bring in the risk of the entire system not working. In some ways it’s the ultimate SOA dream realized, but the other side means far more complexity to manage, which is where all these new ALM tools and technologies come in.”

Within that application complexity is also the rise of containers and microservices, which Bittner called the next big growth area in the software development life cycle. He said containers and microservices are turning applications from large pieces of software into a network of orchestrated services with far more moving parts to keep track of.

“Containers and microservices are really applicable to everything,” said Bittner. “They’ll lead to greater modularity for different parts of an application, to supply organizations the ability to develop different parts of an application independently with the option to replace parts at runtime, or [to] evolve at different speeds. This creates a lot of flexibility around developing and deploying an application, which leads to the notion of an application itself changing.”

JetBrains’ Hariri said microservices are, at their core, just a new way to think about existing SOA architecture, combined with containers to create a new deployment model within applications.

“Microservices, while being sometimes touted as the new thing, are actually very similar, if not the same, as a long-time existing architecture: SOA, except nowadays it would be hard to put the SOA label on something and not be frowned upon,” he said.

“Microservices have probably contributed to making us aware that services should be small and autonomous, so in that sense, maybe the word has provided value. Combining them with containers, which contribute to an autonomous deployment model, it definitely does supply rise to new potential scenarios that can provide value, as well as introduce new challenges to overcome in increasing the complexity of ALM if not managed appropriately.”

Within a more componentized application, Orasi’s McElwee said it’s even more critical for developers and testers throughout the ALM process to meticulously test each component.

“ALM must now be able to handle agile concepts, where smaller portions of development such as Web services change often and need to deployed rapidly to meet customer demand,” said McElwee. “These smaller application component changes must be validated quickly for both individual functional and larger system impacts. There must be an analysis to determine where failures are likely based on history so that higher-risk areas can be validated quickly. The ability to identify tests and associated data components are critical to the success of these smaller components.”

Managing the modern automated pipeline
For enterprise organizations and development teams to keep a handle on an accelerated delivery process with more complex applications to a wider range of platforms, Bittner believes ALM must provide visibility and control across the entire tool chain.

“There’s a tremendous need for a comprehensive delivery pipeline,” he said. “You have Continuous Integration tools handling a large part of the pipeline handing off to deployment automation tools, and once things get in production you have application analytics tools to gather data. The evolution of this ecosystem demands a single dashboard that lets you know where things are in the process, from the idea phase to the point where it’s in the customer’s hands.”

To achieve that visibility and end-to-end control, some ALM solution providers are relying on APIs. TechExcel’s director of product management Jason Hammon said that when it comes to third-party and open-source automation tools for tasks such as bug tracking, test automation or SCM, those services should be tied with APIs without losing sight of the core goals of ALM.

“At the end of the day, someone is still planning the requirements,” he said. “They’re not automating that process. Someone is still planning the testing and implementing the development. The core pieces of ALM are still there, but we need the ability to extend beyond those manual tasks and pull in automation in each stage.

“That’s the whole point of the APIs and integrations: Teams are using different tools. As the manager I can log in and see how many bugs have been found, even if one team is logging bugs in Bugzilla, another team is logging them in DevTrack, and another team is logging them in JIRA. We can’t say, ‘Here’s this monolithic solution and everyone should use just this.’ People don’t work that way anymore.”

Keeping track of all these automated processes and services running within a delivery pipeline requires constant information. Modern ALM suites are built on communication between teams and managers, as well as streams of real-time notifications through dashboards.

“Anywhere in the process where you have automation, metrics are critical,” said HP’s Brayley-Berger. “Being able to leverage metrics created through automation has become a valuable way to course-correct. We’re moving more toward an opportunity for organizations to use these pieces of data to predict future performance. It almost sounds like a time-travel analogy, but the only way for organizations to go even faster than they already are is to think ahead: What should teams automate? Where are the projects likely to face challenges?”

An end-to-end ALM solution plugged into all this data can also overwhelm teams working within it with excess information, said Paula Rome, senior product manager at Seapine Software.

“We want to make sure developers are getting exactly what they need for their day-to-day job,” said Rome. “Their data feed needs to be filled with notifications that are actually useful. The ALM tool should in no way be preventing them from going to a higher-level view, but we want to be wary of counterproductive interruptions.”

Where ALM goes from here
Rome said it was not so long ago that ALM’s biggest problem was that nobody knew of it. Now, in an environment where more and more applications exist purely in the cloud rather than in traditional on-premise servers, she said ALM provides a feeling of stability.

“Organizations are still storing data somewhere, there are still multiple components, multiple roles and team members that need to be up to date with information so you’re not losing the business vision,” said Rome. “But with DevOps and the pressure of Continuous Delivery, when the guy who wrote the code is the one fixing the bug in production, an ALM tool gives you a sort of DevOps safety net. You need information readily available to you. You can get a sense of the source code and you can start following this trail of clues to what’s going on to make that quick fix.”

As the concepts of what applications and life cycles are have changed, TechExcel’s Hammon said ALM is still about managing the same process.

“You still need to be able to see your project, see its progress and make sure there’s traceability from those requirements through the testing to make sure you’re on track, and that you’ve delivered both what you and the customer expected you to,” said Hammon. “Even if you’re continuously delivering, it’s a way to track what you need to do and what you’ve done. That never changes, and it may never change.”

What developers need in a tool suite for the modern application life cycle

Hadi Hariri
“A successful tool is one that provides value by removing grunt work and errors via automation. Its job is to allow developers to focus on the important tasks, not fight the tool.”

Don McElwee
“Developers should look for a suite of tools that can provide a holistic solution to maximize collaboration with different technologies and other teams such as Quality Assurance, Data Management and Operations. By integrating technologies that offer support to different departments, developers can maximize the talents of those individuals and prove that their code can work and be comfortable with potential real-world situations. No longer will they wonder how it will work, but can tell exactly what it does and why it will work.”

Jason Hammon
“The focus should really be traceability. You can manage requirements, implementation and testing, but developers need to look for something that’s flexible with an understanding that if they should want to change their process later, that they have flexibility to modify their process without being locked into one methodology. You also need flexibility in the tools themselves, and tools that can scale up with the customers and data you have. You need tools that will grow with you.”

Paula Rome
“Developers should do a quick bullet list. What aren’t they happy about in their current process? What are they really trying to fix with this tool? Are things falling through the cracks? Are you having trouble getting the information you need to answer questions right now, not next week? Do you find yourself repeating manual processes over and over? Play product manager for a moment and ask yourself what those high-level goals are; what ALM problems you’re really trying to solve.”

Kartik Raghavan
“[Developers] need to differentiate practitioner tools that help you do a job at a granular level from the tools that supply you a level of control, governance or visibility into an application. Especially for an enterprise, you have to first optimize tool delivery. Whatever gets you the best output of high-quality software quickly. There are rules and best practices behind that, though. How do you manage your core code? What model have you enabled for it? Do you want a centralized model or a distributed model, and when you roll those things out, you need to set controls. You need to get that right, but with the larger focus of getting rapid delivery automation in place for your Continuous Delivery life cycle.”

Matt Brayley-Berger
“Any tool set needs to be usable. That sounds simple, but oftentimes it’s frustrating when it’s so far from the current process. The tool itself may also have to annotate the existing processes rather than forcing change to connect that data. You need a tool that’s usable for the developer, but with the flexibility to connect to other disciplines and do some of the necessary tracking on the ground level that’s critical in organizations to report things back. Teams shouldn’t have to sacrifice reporting and compliance for something that’s usable.”

First Lady of Ukraine Accepts Computer Donation from HP Inc.

First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska, met with representatives from HP Inc. and the Global Business Coalition for Education, at the Ukraine House cultural center in Washington, D.C. this week, to accept a donation of technology and learning material headed to Ukraine to support thousands of students, teachers, and healthcare practitioners.Left to right: HP’s Meredith Singer, Ukraine Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United States Oksana Markarova, First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska, HP’s Amy Burke, GBC Executive Director of the Global Business Coalition for Education Justin Van Fleet.

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska, met with representatives from HP Inc. and the Global Business Coalition for Education, at the Ukraine House cultural center in Washington, D.C. this week, to accept a donation of technology and learning material headed to Ukraine to support thousands of students, teachers, and healthcare practitioners.

HP’s "Digital Equity for Ukraine” initiative is a $30 million partnership with Global Business Coalition for Education that will put computers and learning materials in the hands of people who need them.

“The Ukrainian people have demonstrated incredible courage in the face of unimaginable circumstances, and we are grateful for the leadership of First Lady Olena Zelenska and others seeking to end this war,” said Enrique Lores, CEO of HP Inc. “HP continues to mobilize resources to support Ukraine. Through our partnership with the Global Business Coalition for Education, we will put personal computers in the hands of students and families who have been displaced from their homes and classrooms. This moment demands that we all take actions to support those in need.”

The computers will be distributed to organizations on the ground aiding Ukrainians by partnering with the Global Business Coalition for Education, an initiative of the global children’s charity Theirworld. HP will provide computers to the nonprofit organizations. Additionally, Microsoft will provide software support for the nonprofits receiving the computers.

In coordination with the Ukrainian government, about one-half of the donated computers will go to the many civilians displaced within the country and the other half to Ukrainian refugees displaced outside of Ukraine.

“We are very grateful for HP’s and the Global Business Coalition for Education’s support,” said Olena Zelenska, First Lady of Ukraine. “Their efforts and contribution will help students in Ukraine and beyond continue learning and prepare for the future, like any other youth in the world.”

Since February, millions of Ukrainians have had their lives upended by Russia’s invasion. Nearly one-third of Ukrainians have been forced from their homes, according to the United Nations, often leaving only with what they could carry.

Vulnerable children are caught in the middle of war – fleeing their homes, communities, and schools. The Ukrainian government says more than 2,000 educational institutions have been hit by bombs or shelling. Now, millions of Ukrainian students are learning remotely both inside and outside the country.

"Education is one of the first things lost and last things restored during a crisis,” said Justin van Fleet, President of Theirworld and Executive Director of the Global Business Coalition for Education. “This is why we are so glad to collaborate with HP and Microsoft to provide resources to Ukrainian students so they can continue learning.

HP has been increasingly vocal on the notion that digital equity is a human right, committing to accelerate digital equity for 150 million people around the world by 2030. And while devices are essential, they are only one piece of the equation. HP is also investing in teacher training and educational materials, including translating the HP Online Teaching Assistant to Ukrainian, to support educators who are now teaching remotely.

To date, the HP Foundation has delivered more than $3 million in grants to provide essential food, clothing, and shelter materials to Ukrainian refugees, and continues to match donations made by HP employees.
