How to Create a Balanced Approach to Testing

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Manual testing has long been the cornerstone of quality, but relying on manual testing alone is no longer a viable testing strategy. High-velocity teams often struggle to keep up with frequent releases which demands a hybrid or even fully automated approach.

AI in Testing

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 2:45pm to 3:45pm

As more organizations gear up to improve customer experience across digital channels, delivering incremental features and enhancements has become par for the course. Users expect continuous improvement and the best quality in the products and services they access. According to World Quality Report, around 23-28% Enterprise IT Budget is allocated to testing which amounts to enormous $40 billion! Even after this huge budget allocation, according to Global Developer Report from GitLab, Testing is the #1 barrier to speed and agility. Why is this the case?

Deploying a Large Scale Army of AI-Driven Testing Bots

Thursday, October 7, 2021 - 9:45am to 10:45am

AI-driven test execution is helping organizations scale their software validation and verification efforts and keep pace with the speed of DevOps. However, this new level of test automation is not without additional infrastructure costs. AI testing bots tend to consume a significant amount of resources when using deep machine learning models to generate and execute test cases. And so a new problem has arisen: how do we scale AI-driven testing efficiently and reliably to support the needs of large enterprises?

The Benefits of Shift-Left Automated Testing for the Mainframe

Thursday, October 7, 2021 - 9:45am to 10:45am

When developing mainframe applications, testing even a simple code change can take up to half a day - while testing a more complex changes can take two to four days. In a recent Mainframe DevOps survey, businesses budgeted three to four days out of every 10-day sprint for just to conduct manual testing. In addition to the lack of efficiency, this manual process is rife with risk as developers can easily neglect running a test case or even misinterpret the results. It all ends in poor software quality for the end user.

Applying a Risk-Based Approach to Testing Mission-Critical Applications

Thursday, October 7, 2021 - 11:15am to 12:15pm

One of the most under-appreciated 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.
