The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures.

How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in.

Join this web seminar to discover why and how continuous testing is different from traditional test automation.

Learn:

  • The three main differences between continuous testing and test automation
  • Where traditional test automation falls short in modern development and delivery processes
  • How testers can address each of the three key elements of continuous testing
  • How to integrate various testing practices (including model-based testing, risk-based testing, change-based testing, and exploratory testing) in order to achieve the speed and agility required for release

A critical challenge in transitioning to continuous integration (CI) and continuous development (CD) is creating a flexible testing environment that moves the focus from test support teams to IT infrastructure, DevOps, and automation tools.

Legacy tools meant to manually run load tests won’t cut it alone—you need a solution to automate and scale your testing process.

Join this web seminar to learn how a multi-billion dollar financial organization created a net savings of more than 500 man hours of testing and scripting per year using agile performance testing with CI/CD and application performance management (APM).

Gain new insights into how shifting your testing focus can improve development speed, costs, and quality.

Learn:

  • The importance of automation and continuous load testing
  • How to integrate CI/CD into your test environment
  • How APM enables load testing to be more efficient

Developing a QA strategy that scales to meet the changing needs of a growing organization is a major challenge. Traditional testing techniques can’t keep up with a fast-paced development cadence.

For many of these growing software companies, determining whether a product or feature is ready to ship is difficult, and there is no one-size-fits-all strategy.

Join this web seminar to discover how testing needs change as a company grows, and how your team can adapt its QA strategy to an agile approach that fits.

Learn the key factors expanding software companies must consider to optimize their QA strategy for both speed and quality.

You will learn how to:

  1. Find the balance between deployment speed and code quality
  2. Determine the scope of testing that is appropriate for your organization
  3. Develop a forward-thinking QA strategy that scales with your team

If you are testing a simple mobile app, you may find it relatively easy to find representative test data. However, what if you are testing enterprise scale applications?

In the enterprise data center, one hundred or more applications of various sizes, comp lexity, and criticality co-exist, operating on various data repositories, in some cases shared data repositories.

In some cases, disparate data repositories hold related data, and the ability to test integration across applications that access these data sets is critical.

In this webinar, Rex Black will talk about the challenges facing his clients as they deal with these testing problems.

You’ll go away with a better understanding of the nature of the challenges, as well as ideas on how to handle them, grounded in lessons Rex has learned in over 30 years of software engineering and testing

The Testing Foundation Is Broken

Current testing approaches are broken. Test teams lack the true automation needed to keep up with the continuous delivery engine that both the customer and the business demands.

At the same time, the gap is increasing between the priorities of the business owners and the test team. Our current approaches simply don’t put the user at the center of our testing practices.

The rules that testing, automation, and user experience were founded on have been broken by the consumerization of software, mobile apps, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the continuous delivery and DevOps approaches needed to support them.

Learn how to design a new approach to testing that puts users, automation, and a strong relationship between testers and business owners at the center of your testing practices.

Also learn:

  • Why the consumerization of software, mobile apps, the IoT, and continuous delivery demand an all-new approach to testing
  • How current test automation approaches don’t support continuous delivery
  • Why we need to rethink our familiar “testing triangle” to put the user at the center of testing
  • Four new principles that should be at the core of your next test strategy and how you can start applying them today
