Testing Beyond Testing: Trends, Innovations and Challenges

Software Testing Symposium is a single day, single track event where test leadership, management and strategy converge. The Symposium showcases the trends, innovations and challenges in the emerging world of Software Testing.

The event highlights how VR, AR and emerging methodologies will change the future of Software Testing, how Model-Based testing approach enhances Agile and DevOps environment, how the emerging technologies and methodologies are impacting the Test Data Management Strategy, how performance engineering is replacing performance testing and how artificial intelligence and automation will bring a new era of innovation in world of Software Testing.

The Software Testing Symposium is taking place on 26 October 2017 in Manila and is focused on helping testing and development teams work smarter, faster and deliver higher quality software.

This one-day conference features a highly interactive programme – case studies and traditional presentations interspersed with fishbowl. Discussions with the industry leaders and practitioners will help you develop and formulate a Software Testing strategy and execution framework which is applicable for your own requirements.The conference is geared toward practical knowledge that attendees can apply immediately at work, and include short sessions, in-depth discussions, and a leadership summit.
Participate in the interactive fishbowl session and discuss the latest trends. Come along and have your say – learn from your peers and leave with fresh ideas to improve your management strategy.

The Software Testing Symposium is open to all, but is aimed and produced for those professionals that recognise the crucial importance of software testing within the software development lifecycle. Therefore the content is geared towards C-level IT executives, QA directors, heads of testing and test managers, and senior engineers and test professionals.Come along and have your say – learn from your peers and leave with fresh ideas to improve your testing strategy.

Topic Abstract

Quality Engineering Transformation

Melany Fallarcuna, Managing Director & Test Practice Lead, Accenture

To be Announced

Business Centric Approach to Test Management

Daniel Hochberger, Solution Consulting & Customer Success, Panaya

How to tackle complexity and ensures business continuity while managing change, by aligning testing activities to mirror to the actual business in production. This new approach marks a paradigm shift – from traditional code testing to business process validation.
Business process centric test management for business-critical applications should be built around five principles: automation, collaboration, visibility, compliance and process. It needs to be comprehensive, yet simple way for functional experts and business users to run manual and automated testing – faster and more effectively.

Analytics & AI in Testing

Emmanuel Abao, Associate Director, Accenture

To be Announced

Gherkin API

James Marvin Yu, Test Solution Architect, Willis Towers Watson

Contrary to the traditional way of test execution, which uses heavy and detailed test scripts with detailed test steps, the Agile way of test planning focuses on high level test scripts that are user and behavior centric instead of UI centric. Test scripts written are focused on satisfying the acceptance criteria, and are written from the perspective of the user and their behavior with the application. Through understanding who will use the feature and applying BDD testing techniques, we end up developing software that meets user needs, and delivering software that matters. Speaker will talk about using Gherkin, when to use one, combined with RestSharp API technologies and demonstrate automated API testing using .NET and Visual Studio

Effective Test Estimation

Francisco Castillo, SVP-CIO, Maynilad Water Services,inc.

Making use of Function Point Analysis (FPA) for Estimating Testing efforts” Function Point Analysis is a technique commonly used for estimating development effort of programs based on a set of metrics. In the case of off-the-shelf applications which require testing based not on coding (primarily) but on configuration item changes, the application of FPA is somewhat different and less straight-forward, and much of the effort in conducting changes lies in fact in testing, due to the nature of these applications, in which one change has the possibility of impacting many modules and processes. In Maynilad, we have adapted the use of FPA so as to benchmark and then estimate the effort needed to test. Two cases studies are then presented based on an SAP ERP platform, as well as for Business Intelligence. Some initial results are then presented.

Effective Performance Testing and Benchmarking

Enthony Go, Platform Software Engineering Manager, Oracle+Netsuite

The purpose of this presentation is to show how to establish and validate performance requirements through empirical data gathering and statistical analysis. The presentation will include a methodology on how to obtain significant performance metrics of critical scenarios under controlled conditions. Then, there will be a demonstration of how to use statistical analysis of metrics to determine performance baselines and trends. Finally, performance requirements will be tested and validated using baselines and trends on a customer environment.

Data Warehousing – Testing Principles Applied

Elmer Gulle, Program Manager – Data Platform and Advanced Analytics, Info Alchemy Corporation

With increasing awareness of analytics in business and with all its complexity, business stakeholders ponder.. can it be trusted? Data Warehousing is a mature practice with its share of technical evolution over the 3 decades since the invention of relational databases. And yet, it has a mortality rate of 50% based on analysts estimates. This means that 1 in 2 DW projects fail, or that each DW has already a 50% chance of failure at the point of adaption. Learn the concepts of data warehousing and how Testing principles are used to increase DW adaption in business.

DevQAOps

Noel Jarencio, DevOps Consultant, Freelance

The process of building and deploying products have radically changed and DevOps has greatly influenced on how high velocity organisations operate. The purpose of this research is to define and answer questions on What & Whys of DevOps and where does QA fit. The first phase involves describing the past and origin of DevOps. Then we will cover how QA have transformed during the past 10 years. In the final phase, we will explain how DevQAOps will benefit an organisation.

Practical Performance Engineering

Joshua Arvin Lat, Chief Technology Officer, Complete Business Online

Transforming a company’s existing set of processes, strategies, and tools when dealing with different performance issues will always be a challenge. This talk focuses on how to successfully standardise and implement different performance engineering strategies to your company. We will start by presenting the challenges that businesses experience then we will present different solutions on how to approach and deal with these challenges and needs.
