A Flight Plan For Your Continuous Testing Journey: Transforming the Traditional Testing COE

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 - 11:30am to 12:15pm

The pace of business continues to quicken and companies recognize that remaining competitive requires new methods for building, testing and releasing software. Release cadences have greatly accelerated. A 6- to 18-month find-and-fix turnaround is no longer acceptable.

Testing is no longer a single event. It is not something done when development is completed. Instead, it must be done by everyone all the time, even before development starts. Defects and problems must be identified early, instead of being caught or missed when the product reaches the customer.

This is where a “...

There’s More to Automation Than Just Testing

Thursday, October 4, 2018 - 9:45am to 10:45am

You may have been told “we need to automate all our test scripts” or “we need to test faster, so let’s automate our tests”, but automating only tests likely will not improve your quality or time to market. Applications are continuing to become more and more complex, with integrations to back-end mainframe systems all the way to mobile devices, and everything in between. With this additional complexity, delivering high-quality applications in a timely manner is difficult.

We share how looking at your delivery pipeline to determine where improvements can be made is necessary for...
