Testing Cloud Services: SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS

Cloud computing has changed the environment of testing. Its use is increasing for hosting business applications (SaaS) and testing (TaaS). Martin Pol and Jeroen Mengerink focus on SaaS, describing the relevant infrastructure and platform services (IaaS and PaaS). How do we test performance of the cloud itself? How do we make sure that the continuity of services is guaranteed? How do we cope with elasticity and the philosophy of bring-your-own-device (BYOD)? Martin and Jeroen discuss the risks that arise when implementing cloud computing―some traditional, but others completely new. Learn how to mitigate these risks with current, modified, and new test techniques. As testers, we must be involved earlier in the cloud selection process. Testers should help to create and evaluate selection criteria to minimize risk. In addition, testers should be involved in the project longer as testing in production is needed to determine if the Service Level Agreements are being met.

Delegates will receive a free copy of the book Testing Cloud Services by Kees Blokland, Jeroen Mengerink, and Martin Pol.

Special Topics
Test Process Improvement in Agile

Current Test Process Improvement (TPI) models have proven to be a mismatch when used to assess testing in an agile context, since it is significantly more difficult to describe how to become more flexible than it is to describe how to become more structured. So what’s missing in the current models and how can we help organizations improve their testing in an agile environment? Jeroen Mengerink introduces a systematic model to improve the testing in agile software development. The Agile Manifesto, the SCRUM process, and the field experience of numerous testers form the basis for this new model. Jeroen describes new key areas to consider and describes good practices that help mature the agile process. Learn how to improve your testing by using a combination of existing and new key process areas. Additionally, discover a set of practices that can add value to your testing immediately.
