X Topic Abstract

We are at a tipping point for the testing industry and our profession. On one hand we hear that testing will become a more federated and embedded function throughout all of IT with lower dependency on the specialist tester and on the other we hear that testing becomes the most critical function and we will see explosive growth as the digital world embraces more platform and industry-based capabilities. This session will look at these trends and a view of where the industry and its practitioners are headed touching on areas including:

- The Platform Economy
- The Liquid Workforce
- The move from Testing to Quality Engineering and the "QCoE"
- Shifting Left and Right
- The advent of Cognitive, AI and Analytics into mainstream testing
- Transforming Development/Testing/Operations Support through Intelligent DevOps
- The “new norm” – Multi Speed and Hybrid IT

X Topic Abstract

Measured Customer Engagement is a critical driver of business success in an increasingly interconnected world. There is a strong focus in the market on providing tools to businesses so they can deliver content to their current and potential customers (AdWords, Infusionsoft, Buffer, etc.). Very little is however, available to help businesses with 'what to say' and even less on 'will their customers give a damn'. The 'engag3d' platform provides companies with pre-validated, customer aligned messaging using a hypothesis driven, continuous testing and measurement approach to help create 'product-market fit'. This helps businesses win more customers, create brand preference and generate more revenue.

Attendees can expect to understand the following:

1) Strategy has inherent guesswork built into it.

2) Companies learn about strategic errors from expensive execution.

3) Agile strategy allows for continuous testing and validation of core marketing and product strategy.

4) Catch errors before big executional spend.

5) Build proactive and predictive systems for marketing and product design to achieve better product market fit.
