INTEGRATING AUTOMATED TESTING INTO DEVOPS AND AGILE

As product release cycles get shorter and shorter and companies look for ways to get to continuous deployments and adopt DevOps and Agile software development approaches, customer expectations for high quality software products also increase. This puts tremendous pressure on organizations to find ways to keep up with software testing to ensure high quality software before it is released. This talk will discuss how automated testing integrates with DevOps and Agile software development strategies and highlights some practical steps you can take to ensure both speed and quality in your product release cycles.

THE CASE FOR SYNTHETIC TEST DATA

Synthetic Test Data has come a long way. This session will discuss the advantages of synthetic data over masking production data. We will look at a right combination of live and synthetic test data can be applied to have maximum test coverage and how it is redefining the use of data in Agile, DevOps and Waterfall environments.

ROAD TO HYPER AUTOMATION

It is a tremendous challenge to find a good answer to how much testing we need. Do we not do testing enough or are we doing too much testing? How do we justify the time and effort that goes into testing? The answer lies in understanding the "Total Cost of Quality" which is using metrics and data to understand how much is being spent in 'quality activities' and compare that to how much value it is presently or potentially generating across various aspects and areas.

BEST PRACTICES FOR SOFTWARE QUALITY ASSURANCE IN AN AGILE ENVIRONMENT

Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) are 2 very important topics for any product and for any industry. Software Quality Assurance is a necessary step for launching a successful software product. I am promoting the idea that Software Quality Assurance is part of the project work and is the responsibility of the whole team. Agile is a great platform for managing all the complex aspects of software development. In the transition from waterfall to agile, all of us have faced many issues related to quality assurance. The SDLC methodology is a structured process that splits each aspect of software development into different phases. In an Agile Software Development Life Cycle, the team can jump back and forth between SDLC phases. That’s why we should define the process for Software Quality Assurance in order to be sure that, in the end, we will deliver a quality product.
The agile practitioners have also claimed that the use of the agile approach has greatly improved the quality of their products. I will analyze these issues in order to better understand the relation between Software Quality Assurance and the Agile environment. I will try to provide directions towards future integrations of Quality Assurance aspects within Agile development practices. I would also like to highlight that Software Quality Assurances is not only testing.

TEST OPTIMIZER AND TEST PATTERN MINING

Planning for tests in a fast paced schedule could become very hard and a lot of challenges are encountered. Some of the common challenges projects encounter are:
There are too many test scripts, do we need to test all?
Which test scripts are impacted by a particular defect?
Do we have redundant test scripts?
In this session, we will learn how we can address the challenges in planning for tests and at the same time be more efficient.

PRODUCTION FEEDBACK ANALYSIS USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

In the present time, organizations are running on a racetrack to maximize the reach of products and services to the end-users. But a Quality engineering team seldom gets involved in the analysis of consumer behaviour, application usage and production tickets after the application is deployed to production. This often results in high defect leakage, and low application availability leading to the weak consumer experience. 74% Customer experience leaders acknowledge the need for more significant commitment to improving customer satisfaction, says Gartner’s studies for 2020. The presentation will provide view of how AI can be used for production defect analysis, application performance monitoring, usage pattern and sentiment analysis to improve the overall end consumer experience

HOW TO GET AN “A+" IN UAT

An application to be used by both internal employees and external customers from 50 different countries, teams scattered across the world, an offshore team that has little UAT experience - a UAT nightmare in a global scale, indeed. See how our UAT team, located offshore, faced these massive challenges. Take a look at what we did from planning to designing to executing and automating, to reporting, until supporting the release. Apply these learnings into your own UAT processes and deliver more value to your customers’ businesses. Let’s put the “A+” in your UAT!

INNOVATIVE LOCATORS SKILL

In web automation we waste almost 60-80% of our time on writing locators, but we are still creating them using Chrome DevTools or some tools, which is like writing code in Notepad in 2020 while there are so many intelligent editors available. In this session, we will learn how we can reduce the percentage of our time spent on writing locators to 4-5% and how we should think in order to develop innovations that are based on our daily problems.
