Agile + DevOps West 2022 Concurrent Session : Agile + Automation = Transformation


Thursday, June 16, 2022 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

Agile + Automation = Transformation

This session would emphasize on how important it is to adopt not just Agile but also Automated Testing. Together they can drive any transformation within the Team or the organization. It is crucial for teams to identify, communicate and define the expectations. These need to be validated in an automated way to increase speed and stability with each delivery.
For smaller teams it might be an easier transformation, but there will be less resources as each member wears multiple hats. For larger organizations, it will be a slower transition as there are processes and roles that might need to be re-evaluated to remove redundant tasks and reduce repeated processes.

Change is imminent and if not seen as an opportunity it can be damaging. In this talk you will understand how to transform an organisation and strategically transform to modern engineering practices without losing sight of quality. You will learn that success is achievable with the right mindset and confidence. Learn to discover, engage, execute and pivot for success.
