About the event

National banks and regulators, exchanges and investment banks across the world are taking seriously the financial innovation of distributed ledger or block chain technology. The block chain, aka Trust Machine underpins "crypto currencies" such as Bitcoin; but it goes beyond digital money. It provides a shared, trusted, public ledger that everyone can inspect, but no single user controls. It is at the cusp of revolutionising international money transfers, trade finance, syndicated lending and collateral management, among other applications. As it allows for almost instantaneous payments and settlement, the potential impact on the role of traders, quants and other financial technologists cannot be underestimated.

This conference brings together Block Chain technologists in the finance sector, regulators, industry commentators, computer science researchers and others involved in financial innovation; these experts explore some of the technology and the many applications of Block chain in Financial Services.

    Topic Abstract

    Whenever a new technology / approach is introduced, there comes the challenge to see how it can be tested as well. When SOA was implemented, the hurdle testing community faced was to define a test strategy to test the service layer. Thanks to SOAP UI and service layer test capabilities, now a days SOA testing is no more a testing buzz. Likewise, now the test community faces a challenge of getting equipped on to test block chain applications and to device an approach for the same.

    This paper focus on the things to be taken care, how to setup the Block chain test capability so that when implementation is done in it, QA can augment and support its testing. It’s some of the best practices, test approaches, tools and initiatives to be taken in this respect, that will be discussed here.

    If we get a bit deeper into how blockchain is implemented, we understand its intricacies and challenges. This helps in setting up its testing context as well. In a black box point, the conventional testing mantra holds good up to 80% for Block chain related tests as well. But some areas where more focus may be needed is on load, performance, security etc. Also one area will be the volume or capacity the block can hold. It being logical sequences, the logical thinking ability will be vital for the success as a tester. Also since it is linking between blocks, the integration test is of utmost importance. NFR test at critical blocks is very vital as exposure at any such block will impact the consecutive and hence the whole system.

    Like in any new technology era, it’s good to have two or three QA members earmarked to learn the techy buss (google and do certain R&D, again size depends on size of project). Also they need to get familiar with the set of tools like Etherium, Corda, Truffle etc. Which tool / set of tools to be used need to be decided after conducting amble comparative and POC studies and evaluations. ROI, feature evaluation and ease of use, support availability etc. are some criteria to be checked while cornering on certain tools for our need.

    Any improvement being implemented is with one or more of the three points of consideration like cost, quality and customer satisfaction. By enabling the team to perform these tests, we can improve quality and save costs. Also that will make customer also happy as they get all services from the same vendor. Above this, there is an employee motivation factor as well, since they can learn new technology and tools. This paper is shared with an intention of helping testing team / test managers enable in setting up block chain test capability.

    Topic Abstract

    Blockchain has evolved from the Bitcoin whitepaper by nom de plume Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 to creating a billion dollar market, spreading across disciplines and countries. Blockchain is not a one word solution to all our problems and there is no 'one blockchain to rule all' but the theoretical concept of blockchain is revolutionary and when fine tuned for specific use cases, it can address and solve various challenges faced by some of the biggest industries in the world. Blockchain and its concepts are being made a reality now and all the hype we hear is due to its perceived potential to change technology as we see it. When it evolves not as a cryptocurrency but as a stable and effective technology, it could become an integral part of every industry where trust, transparency and traceability is essential. The session would focus on the journey and evolution of blockchain and its future role in our lives. v
