In today’s agile environments, coding without testing in mind makes you unprepared for the velocity or the volume of changes required to attain continuous testing and delivery.

Employing a model-based testing approach gets testing on the fast track and lets you test at the speed of agile.

Unlike traditional testing approaches, model-based testing enables rigorous testing that fits into the same sprint, while allowing stakeholders—from testers and developers to business analysts—to stay in alignment and remain flexible.

Join Alex Martins and learn how to employ model-based testing techniques in four key areas of testing: requirements engineering, test design automation, agile testing, and test case optimization.

You will also learn how to overcome the key challenges developers and testers face, including:

  • Ambiguous requirements
  • Limited test coverage
  • Test data bottlenecks
  • Unavailable system components
  • Lack of automation

Presenter:  Alex Martins (LinkedIn profile) CTO—Continuous Testing CA Technologies  has more than 18 years of experience in large-scale application design, development, and testing. Alex has been focused on software quality engineering and testing discipline as the pillars for DevOps transformations. From tester to practice leader in various technology companies such as EDS, IBM, HP, and Cognizant Technology Solutions, Alex built and ran several enterprise testing organizations in Latin America and the US for multiple clients. He led HP’s Global Testing Innovation capability, creating continuous testing offerings to support digital transformation initiatives, and was one of the innovation leaders in Cognizant’s mobile and IoT QA practice.

The term “test automation” is misleading. The testing process includes defining test objectives, creating test cases, writing test scripts, setting up test environments, scheduling test runs, reviewing test results, and providing feedback to development.

If you think about it, we really only automate a single—yet critical—part of that process: test execution.

The impact of artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics on testing will fundamentally transform testing into a revenue-generating profit center that increases customer conversion and retention.

But how do we get there?

Join this web seminar to learn how AI and analytics will change the way teams test software.

Also Learn:

  • What an AI and analytics solution looks like and how it will transform testing
  • How you can apply AI and analytics in testing, with a focus on the user experience
  • The seven key steps required to achieve true test automation

Research shows (Forrester Research study) that thanks to the widespread adoption of agile practices and continuous testing, 80 percent of your overall testing efforts should be automated.

But how can your team realistically reach that lofty goal, and what role will your manual testers play?

Testing is the elephant in the room for continuous delivery.

However, no matter how complex your environment, it’s possible to deliver reliable continuous delivery by overcoming your test automation challenges and scaling testing within your DevOps pipeline.

Join this web seminar to learn how to transform your continuous testing strategy with scriptless automation using the success of GE’s Testing Center of Excellence as an example.
