Test Management for Cloud-based Applications

Because the cloud introduces additional system risks—Internet dependencies, security challenges, performance concerns, and more—you, as a test manager, need to broaden your scope and update your team’s practices and processes. Ruud Teunissen shares a unique approach that directly addresses more than 140 new testing concerns and risks you may encounter in the cloud. Learn how to identify cloud-specific requirements and the risks that can ensue from those requirements. Then, explore the test strategies you'll need to adopt to mitigate those risks. Explore cloud services selection, implementation, and operations. Then, take a dive in to the wider scope of test management in the cloud. Take back the ammunition you need to convince senior management that test managers should participate during the cloud services selection to help avoid risks before implementation and, further, why you should work with IT operations to extend test activities after the system goes live.

High-flying Cloud Testing Techniques

The cloud can deliver services over the Internet in three ways—software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Each of these approaches requires testers to focus on more than classical functional testing. Ruud Teunissen explores the new techniques and skills testers need to master for testing cloud services. Examples include testing for elasticity; testing fall back scenarios to guarantee continuity of business processes; testing for adherence to laws and regulations; and testing apps, web services, and the numerous platforms that need to be supported. Join Ruud and learn how to test these additional cloud requirements to get a grip on technical test issues, explore cloud services operations, and jump-start the broader scope of testing in the cloud. Take back practical approaches for tuning and tweaking your present test techniques to fly high in the cloud.

Reports of the Death of Testing Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Have you heard? It’s all over the social media. We are the “last generation of testers.” Testing is dead. No more classical testing—too much inflexible process. Context driven? That is a code phrase for do whatever. Agility? Developers do testing, and testers become developers. DevOps? Development and operations join forces—and test is not in the picture. And, companies don’t test anymore—they outsource. Ruud Teunissen believes we must save the indispensable craft of testing.
