Testing Cloud Services SOLD OUT

Cloud computing is rapidly changing the way systems are developed, tested, and deployed. New system hosting capabilities—software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS)—are forcing us to review and revise our testing processes. At the same time, cloud computing is affording us opportunities to employ new test tooling solutions, which we call testing as a service (TaaS). In this technical session, Martin Pol and Jeroen Mengerink focus on testing SaaS systems, describing relevant IaaS and PaaS capabilities along the way. They discuss how to test performance of the cloud itself and ways to take advantage of the resource elasticity afforded by cloud computing. Martin and Jeroen explore the risks―some traditional, others completely new—that arise when organizations implement cloud computing and describe the tests you need to design to mitigate these risks.

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

Test Improvement in Our Rapidly Changing World

In organizations adopting the newest development approaches, classical test process improvement models no longer fit. A more flexible approach is required today. Solutions like SOA, virtualization, web technology, cloud computing, mobile, and the application of social media have changed the IT landscape. In addition, we are innovating the way we develop, test, and manage. Many organizations are moving toward a combination of agile/Scrum, context-driven testing, continuous integration and delivery, DevOps, and TestOps. Effective test automation has become a prerequisite for success. And all of these require a different way of improving testing, an adaptable way that responds to innovations in both technology and development. Martin Pol shares a roadmap that enables you to translate the triggers and objectives for test improvement into actions that can be implemented immediately. Learn how to achieve continuous test improvement in any situation, and take away a practical set of guidelines to enable a quick start.
