Differences in application complexity, lead time prior to changing application versions, and downtime costs associated with a particular application all heavily influence how companies approach the adoption of proper testing and change management, according to a new study conducted by Research Edge.

In this webinar, StackSafe's Dennis Powell and an Ecora Systems Engineer will discuss the following findings from this latest research and how proper testing environments and configuration audit reporting can aid in 3 reducing the downtime often associated with new application deployment or upgrades to existing applications.

We'll cover:

  • The three main organizational approaches to change management and testing
  • Why change management adoption can be more difficult in high stress environments
  • The positive role downtime expenses play in the adoption of testing and change management processes
  • The types of organizations that tend to have the most "laissez-faire" attitude towards change management
  • How multiple operating systems can nearly double the cost of unplanned downtime
