Gone are the days when performance engineering for systems and software was done as an afterthought, or after the first performance related escalation from a customer was received. Today, performance is embedded right from design to every stage of the implementation and verification. Sufficient advancements have been incorporated to left-shift identification of potential performance issues and address them as soon as possible. However, performance engineering teams still work isolated from most other teams in the development and research labs.
Given that the performance engineering teams hold the mantle for a successful release and a go-to market strategy in many cases, they become crucial squad members in addition to representatives from other engineering teams as well as from the marketing and offering management teams.
In this session, I will go through a case study of the transformation that I personally led in the Systems performance engineering organisation within IBM. Detailing the structure that existed and the challenges that were posed during the journey of adopting a scaling agile approach for performance engineering, I will cover the synergy that was achieved as well as points for any team that is interested in adopting this approach for their traditionally structured teams.

Automation can become a liability rather than asset if it's not handled properly. Automation can be called as an "asset" if (a) the test scripts are executed repeatedly and (b) the results of such execution are accurate and dependable.
In this presentation, we will be discussing the architecture and execution strategies for high-ROI automation along with examples. We will presenting a case study of the benefits of automating all activities of test lifecycle (and not just test execution). And finally, we will introduce the audience to the award-winning framework (Stevie Bronze International Business Award, 2017) we have developed in our organization for Continuous testing and test lifecycle automation.

Manual Testing is performed to find defects but it is time-consuming, expensive, often repetitive and subject to human error. Moreover, it results in bugs in delivered software/product.
Test Automation is the way to create automated tests for manual test cases to perform repeated steps, compare them to expected behavior and report success/failure.
This helps in increasing efficiency and coverage of software. However in spite of it being considered critical for big software companies, it is considered to be too expensive or difficult to implement.
Case Studies of implementing automation across domains such as Appliance, IOT, Conformance, Server Management, Web .etc. and Best Practices shall be shared, which would ensure to achieve successful testing and get maximum return on investment(ROI).

With increase in the complexity of software testing, large chunks of resources are to be pressed for service dynamically. It includes huge run time memory and the processing power. The cloud happens to be the platform of choice to enable this by providing the required infrastructure. smart utilization of this facility is required to fully exploit the capabilities. It calls for runtime allocation of resources based on prediction analytics to enable seamless functioning. Prediction and resource allocation done with a Neural network blended with Random early detection (RED) provides superior results. Case studies would be provided to support the same. The resource allocation in turn dictate partitioning of the test software objects. For optimal performance, a tradeoff is required between size of the software object and the number of transactions with the cloud as evident from the case study.
Another issue with the centralized testcase repository over the cloud is, dumping of the duplicate test cases as they are generated by multiple teams to test overlapping functionalities. State of the art AI techniques to handle this issue would be presented along with the case study

Testing needs have evolved a lot over time and to cater to them, various interesting developments have taken place in the field of test automation. Tools like Jenkins, Cucumber etc changed the way we think about automation. However, most of these developments did nothing about the core of test automation i.e. the test engine itself. They went for existing test engines mostly JUnit and TestNG in the Java world. As a result, they did a patch work in the framework layer for various shortcomings of the engines themselves. Same is true for most of the custom/despoke automation frameworks developed within organizations as well.
Arjuna is a new generation free test automation engine created by Rahul Verma. It has been coded from scratch, as some would say - it is a reinvention of the test automation wheel. When was a reinvention a bad thing? A wise man once said whatever had to be created has already been created, we just discover it. Arjuna is specifically geared towards today's complex test automation needs while not forgetting the strong foundations laid by its predecessors and teacher in the form of JUnit and TestNG. This presentation happens to be the first formal presentation and hence the official launch of Arjuna by its creator - Rahul Verma. Join the presentation and your views about test automation engines would be changed forever.

At SAP, the continuous quest for new frontiers to make software testing more effective and efficient continues. Lately, the advancements in the topic of Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics has improved the reach of these topics to common users who can leverage their benefits without the need of specialized data scientists.
In this session, we will discuss the fundamental concept of machine learning where test data is provided as input to an intelligence system which it uses for learning and predictions. Furthermore, we will discuss the application of these concepts in software testing. We will discuss various pragmatic use cases at SAP where this concept has been applied. Through this topic, we will also try to share the direction software testing is taking and throw light on what’s in store ahead.
This session shall be an experience sharing session where we shall discuss SAP’s endeavours to use machine learning with software testing to positively impact product quality.

In today's Agile implementations, we testers face challenges around lack of documentation, lack of developer discipline, developer - tester relationship and management expectations on delivery.
To address this, we need to collaborate at different levels… At the product owner level, architect / designer level, developer level and, of course, management! All of these stakeholders have different priorities and needs that drive their behaviours. To be effective in our roles, collaboration, through effective systems & processes cannot be overlooked.
What we will address as a part of this talk is practical examples of how to improve collaboration whilst undertaking effective testing & automation, including the need to define the automation expectations, developer expectations, management expectations, domain / business analyst expectations.
Project managers and Automation architects will benefit with practical approaches on how-what-when the automation team should collaborate with various other teams in the organization hierarchy (the development team, to business analysts and higher management) to make automation successful.

In this challenging world change is the only constant thing. This also applies to the work products and services that we deliver to customers. Not only that, in this competitive and demanding world all customers expect optimal output with less budget, maximized quality and increased time to market. This becomes much more important when we are executing software development projects, where requirements changes are imperative. To fulfil the objectives, we need to understand the customer business and their changing needs. So how are we going to do this? This can be done following Agile methodologies and processes. But again, can we fully say that, following agile practice will solve all issues?
The old saying "you can't improve what you can't measure" indicates the need to know how you know. But while agile scrum defines several milestones—sprint planning, daily stand-up, sprint review, sprint retrospective, backlog grooming—the milestones alone don't provide any guarantees of progress or success. However, each one allows team members to inspect and adapt how—and what—they work on. In this paper the AVM (Agile Value metrics) framework that addresses all the issues and gives us a clear path on delivering working software to end user.
In AVM framework, we define the end to end agile methodology, things to perform, key metrics that the agile methodologies specifically mention for measuring the success of scrum teams for keeping sprints on track.
