Innovating @ The Speed of Imagination: Is Testing the Bottleneck?

Wednesday, May 3, 2023 - 11:30am to 12:15pm

Software engineering has arguably been one of mankind’s greatest advancements. We use it to solve real-world problems, improve effectiveness and efficiency in all industries, and of course generate profit. Ultimately, innovation is dependent on the number of tests an organization can run; we need to develop confidence in the quality of these tests. In most disciplines, practitioners have standards to meet, and failure to adhere can have severe consequences. For example, physicians rely on a standard of care, and electrical engineers rely on specific IEEE standards when designing systems....

The Rise of AI Bots: Strategies for Effective Testing & Quality Assurance

Wednesday, May 3, 2023 - 11:30am to 12:15pm

COVID-19 has accelerated the development of contactless solutions. With bots/conversational interfaces being the most preferred way of quickly deploying self-service tech, the popularity of ChatGPT has proven that conversational interfaces are the most natural way of interacting with apps and the internet. Key aspects of any AI-based bots are their ability to understand the user’s intent and provide the right solution.

Lowering the Barrier to Performance Testing

Wednesday, May 3, 2023 - 11:30am to 12:15pm

53% of consumers expect webpages to load in 3 seconds or less and 45% of consumers will leave a slow website with a negative brand impression. Despite its central role in quality, routine performance testing has been out of reach for most software teams due to the cost and complexity of existing solutions.

Stopping Software Erosion

Wednesday, May 3, 2023 - 11:30am to 12:15pm

In a changing environment, successful software is continuously evolved to meet the users‘ needs. However, changes to the software increase the complexity and make subsequent changes ever-more difficult and – in the long run – the software impossible to be maintained or improved any further. Stopping this "software erosion” is crucial for sustainable quality and a long life-cycle of the software. Erosion-free software ensures that business critical safety and security standards are met.

Don’t Let Poor Testing Strategies Compromise Your Quality

Wednesday, May 3, 2023 - 1:30pm to 2:15pm

The drive to transform pushes application delivery teams to release faster. Yet enterprises need to deliver quality products and services to woo customers and gain market share. Consequently, quality is often lost or even sacrificed as efforts to increase delivery velocity are prioritized, and the alignment between business and development is lost. But software quality should maximize the value of your enterprise strategy—not put it at risk. And it isn’t a question of speed vs quality; rather it's how we can do both at the same time.

Unlocking the Power of Quality Engineering: How to Build Testing Tools that Make a Difference

Wednesday, May 3, 2023 - 1:30pm to 2:15pm

To keep up with fast paced delivery without sacrificing quality or having armies of testers, effective tooling is a necessity. Off-the-shelf tooling often doesn’t provide the impact required and custom tooling from scratch requires large investments. Targeted, built-for-purpose tooling can balance both worlds - maximizing impact and finding innovative solutions to *your* problems. Quality Engineering means taking testing to the next level and looking beyond how things have always been done - including how tools can transform the way you test.

Application Coverage Is the Quality Metric You Need

Wednesday, May 3, 2023 - 2:45pm to 3:30pm

Many quality teams measure success based on the number of scripts written and deployed, that is Test Coverage. These have been practical metrics given the time constraints for manual testing and for creating and maintaining test automation. But now that AI is providing the opportunity for teams to achieve massively greater efficiency through autonomous testing, these measures fall short. Application Coverage is a more complete measure of the effectiveness of your testing program yielding more issues more quickly.

Get With The Times: How to Incorporate DevOps into your ERP Transformation

Wednesday, May 3, 2023 - 2:45pm to 3:30pm

80% of ERP transformations go over time or budget. While most QA and testing leaders recognize that utilizing DevOps can streamline these cumbersome projects, actually incorporating DevOps into ERP transformations has proven to be quite the challenge.

In this session, Dimpy Sharma, VP of Product Solutions at Opkey, will explain how test automation is key for incorporating DevOps into ERP transformations, and will share how she used DevOps methods to successfully migrate 40 of The GAP’s business units from Oracle EBS to Oracle Cloud.

API Testing in Kubernetes: Transparent Remoting Using HCL OneTest

Wednesday, May 3, 2023 - 2:45pm to 3:30pm

A typical Kubernetes application is usually made of several containers, and services within those containers. These are usually sat behind an Egress/Ingress controller and many security layers so that interactions with the application are restricted to the overall application APIs, whether they are published or not. Access to the internal services of the applications are largely restricted though testers might need to access internal services, and this is all what the transparent remoting feature is about.

Mock, Stub, or Virtualize… Let’s Shift Left

Thursday, May 4, 2023 - 9:45am to 10:30am

Today, everybody is tasked with integrations. We must integrate our product with EVERY system, component, and operating system under the sun. Unfortunately, it might not be desirable or even possible to access those systems during development. There could be security, performance or maintenance issues that make them unavailable. We see teams having dependencies on services owned by other groups which are not accessible, which halts development.

This is when we mock, stub, or virtualize.

How to Establish Effective Cross-team Collaboration as Part of the QA Automation Effort

Thursday, May 4, 2023 - 9:45am to 10:30am

All too often, organizations buy into the idea that the key to long-term, successful automation is a straightforward combination of manpower and an automation tool. But it’s not as simple as that. In order for automation to be truly scalable in the long term, teams must establish strong collaboration and work together to define their overarching strategy and approach.

Continuous Everything! 8 Continuous Testing Best Practices to Attain Your Continuous Delivery Goals

Thursday, May 4, 2023 - 11:15am to 12:00pm

In this presentation we will discuss some of the key testing practices that enable testing to be truly continuous in the context of DevOps and Continuous Delivery.

We live in an age of DevOps transformations, testing is no longer an isolated activity, and testing practices must be tuned to support our organization’s DevOps aspirations.


Managing Risk-Based Testing in the Age of AI

Thursday, May 4, 2023 - 11:15am to 12:00pm

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing how software testing is performed, allowing for faster and more accurate detection of defects. However, with this new technology comes new risks that must be managed to ensure the quality and reliability of the software being developed. In this talk, Adam Sandman will explore the concept of Risk-Based Testing (RBT) and how it can be applied in the age of AI. He will discuss the challenges that arise when implementing RBT, including the need to balance the benefits of AI with the risks of false positives and false negatives.

Rise of No Code Automation

Thursday, May 4, 2023 - 11:15am to 12:00pm

Test automation has now been adopted by thousands of organizations worldwide that are seeking to condense their testing cycles, enhance QA productivity and accountability, become truly agile, and deliver quality products faster. But the complex coding efforts required to design, build, and maintain these tests can prove to be counterproductive for lean teams wherein each member has to contribute to testing. Non-coding product stakeholders can get isolated from the testing process, creating misalignments within the teams.

Autonomous Testing: A Load of Old Bull or the Key to Getting Ship Done?

Thursday, May 4, 2023 - 12:35pm to 1:20pm

Autonomous Testing is rapidly becoming a trendy new word in test automation, but what does the term mean? The definition has important implications in ascertaining whether we are, or it is possible, to be close to autonomous testing or not. The most basic definition could be “an autonomous system needs to be able to make decisions for itself.” This requires data. Lots of data. This brings us to an interesting question: from where do we get this data? Production, and that has its own problems.
