Extreme Automation: Software Quality for the Next Generation Enterprise

Software runs the business. The modern testing organization aspires to be a change agent and an inspiration for quality throughout the entire lifecycle. To be a change agent, the testing organization must have the right people and skill sets, the right processes in place to ensure proper governance, and the right technology to aid in the delivery of software in support of the business line. Traditionally, testing organizations have focused on the people and process aspect of solving quality issues. With the ever-increasing complexity of the software needed to run the enterprise, testing professionals must adopt technology to help solve some of the most challenging quality issues ever.

Theresa Lanowitz focuses on new and emerging technologies—proven and successful—to add to the workbench of the test professional.
