Stuck in the Middle: How to Achieve DevOps Quality On Your Terms

Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

If you ask ten people the true definition of DevOps, you'll get ten answers. There are different views on what DevOps is and who has achieved success. Many organizations know what is necessary to build quality into their DevOps processes, but many are stuck in the middle of their transformation. They've tried all the best practices to mimic the fast-paced startups and unicorns but can't figure out how to ensure quality.

Ready to Run the Risk? Applying a Risk-Based Approach to Testing

Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

One of the most underappreciated aspects of testing is risk. There is never enough time to do all the testing that would be needed for 100% coverage (this is true for automated testing and manual testing). Consequently, there is a tradeoff between spending time on different types of testing and focusing on specific features, modules or requirements. By applying a risk-based approach to testing, you can seek to optimize these trade-offs with a data-driven methodology.


The Future of Testing is Digital

Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

20+ years and not much has changed.   Testers are asked to test more technologies, faster and more often.  On top of this, testing is still mostly done manually, because the tools haven’t lived up to their promise – automations are brittle and require continuous maintenance.   The modern digital business must deliver customer value continuously, rapidly and with high quality - whether the value is delivered via an application, a process automation or a mobile experience.   The future of testing is digital.

A Practical Guide to Conquering Test Automation

Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

According to Capgemini, a whopping 25% of total IT spend today is allocated to QA. Despite this, only 15% of tests have been automated. This suggests that implementing and being successful with test automation is hard.

So, what are organizations doing wrong?

If you're among the 85% that have been unable to adopt and scale test automation – or you’re feeling the struggle with your existing efforts - and want practical tips on how QA teams and functional testers can overcome common challenges and directly contribute to automation, this is the presentation for you.

AI-based Testing Will Keep You Relevant in Tomorrow's Digital Evolution

Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 2:45pm to 3:45pm

Test automation is critical for success in today’s digital evolution. Software test engineers must think differently, because doing more of the same simply isn’t good enough. If we want to keep pace with the ever-shrinking development cycles, we must work smarter and adopt the latest innovations in AI/ML and analytics.

If Great Testing Is a Data Problem, How Are You Solving It?

Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 2:45pm to 3:45pm

Many organizations are running lots of ‘testing’, but not really testing their applications. The act of testing is no good unless we are running the ‘right’ tests with the ‘right’ test data. The ‘right’ data needs to be safe, secure, obfuscated AND exercise all the TDC’s, test data conditions, of our applications. The same is true for the testing of your mainframe applications.

In this audience interactive session, we will discuss

Test Data Management Can Turn a Bottleneck into an Asset

Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 9:45am to 10:45am

The world is in the middle of a digital revolution and business models are increasingly based on software applications. As a result, the speed of software development is becoming a decisive factor for a company’s success. In this context, there is an area of strategic relevance that is often underestimated: Optimizing Test Data Management (TDM) can directly increase the performance of application development. Providing test data can become either a bottleneck or success factor for the entire software development process.

test.allTheThings() - How to Manage Risk with a Comprehensive Test Strategy

Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Daily or even hourly deployments are becoming the new normal, as companies strive to deliver the delightful digital experiences their customers have come to expect. To deliver reliable apps fast, while reducing risk, teams need a comprehensive testing strategy that provides visibility across the software development lifecycle.

While functional testing provides a good baseline, it misses bugs in other areas. To mitigate the risk of releasing bugs into production and ensure a high level of quality in your web and mobile apps, you’ll need additional tools in your testing toolkit.

Orchestrate tests with LambdaTest

Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

One of the biggest challenges developers/testers face is the speed of test execution but they are stuck with just two options—depending on legacy cloud infrastructure or painstakingly building a local setup.Legacy cloud infrastructure isn’t as fast as a local setup. But, on the other hand, local setups don’t have the features that can be offered on the cloud. This is exactly where a cloud-based next-gen smart test orchestration platform comes in. It brings intelligence to a rather mundane and tedious task, thereby ensuring both time and cost savings for businesses.

Making Time for Bigger Bugs - Leveraging AI to Strengthen Your Automated Tests

Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Test automation rarely lives up to its promise: Handling rote testing tasks, while freeing QA to dig in and find the big, complicated, dangerous bugs. It fails because traditional test automation is inherently flaky, requiring constant maintenance to remain operational and reliable. We start automation hoping to simplify, then find that for every hour we write test code, we either spend 5-10 hours maintaining it or give up and watch it die. Instead of hunting the big bugs, we’re trawling logs to figure out what broke this time. Why?
