QA Transformation & Evolution

Objective of this paper is to provide insight about most prevalent nature of testing activities with specific highlights about required transformation. In many aspects technology software development have considerably improved with rapid deliverables. In line with the advanced approach in technology, testing activities have not kept up to speed. Most of the challenges faced due to inadequate quality coverage, are still a major concern in many organizations.

Over time period, testing and quality focus has gained importance. Begun as developer oriented testing with issues being addressed as part of implementation, which was highly reactive approach. Later independent testing, specific set of team of people conducting testing evolved. This was the time period in which standardization to achieve required quality outcome gained high visibility.

Visual Test Models - a picture saves a 1000 words

Traditional methods of test documentation (hefty MS Word Test Plans or 1000’s of test cases) can be difficult to absorb, resulting in miscommunication and ultimately problems with the quality of applications due to missed test scope, insufficient timelines or misaligned priorities.

Visual Test Models (VTM) are a breakthrough in how QA/ Testing communicate with the rest of the project team. Visually presenting the testing scope enables fully informed discussions around priorities, effort estimation and enables the project team to gain common understanding of the scope and associated risks early on.

How Interactivity and UI changes the way we gather information

In recent years so much data were stored that it was inevitable the rising of Big Data movement as an horizontal discipline and solution to most of the vertical sectors such as Sustainability, Manufacturing, IT, Security, Safety, just to name some. In such context, is everybody able to see what the data really means? Is everybody able to extrapolate the right information from the jungle? Most probably no if not an expert. In parallel the spread of new gesture based for of interaction and smart devices, fixed and mobile, provide the users with no more barriers for information retrieval processes. Furthermore the role of HCI (Human Computer Interaction) and of Visual heavily impact on the overall understanding process of insight gathering from big data. In this respect we provide new form of data scouting enabling users with a deeper experience in data manipulation enhancing the overall cognitive processes

What is Agile testing? And How Does Automation Help?

Agile Methodology is not new. Many organisations / teams have already adopted Agile way of Software Development or are in the enablement journey for the same. What does this mean for Testing? There is no doubt that the Testing approach and mindset also needs to change to be in tune with the Agile Development methodology. Learn what does it mean to Test on Agile Projects. Also, learn how Test Automation approach needs to change for the team to be successful!

Building Agile Test Automations

This proposal talks about an innovative approach to building Test Automations in an agile way over the traditional automation approach that will produce much better, faster and quantifiable yields from automation testing. This approach gels extremely well with cloud based product lines which follow fast paced continuous delivery cycles but can also be applied to other products.

Round Table Discussion

Participants join a table to discuss one or more of the Conference themes - (Agile Testing; Mobile Testing; Test Automation; Testing in Continuous Delivery; BDD, Rebellion of the Crash Test Dummies, Next Generation of Rapid Mobile Testing in an Agile Set-up, Implementing TMMi - Testing Maturity Model Integrated, Performance Testing, etc.) Each table has a "Topic Guru" to facilitate the discussion.

Workshop : Risk-Based Exploratory Test Design (Designing tests for most crucial risks, the exploratory way)

No test script survives contact with the software.
That's where scripted tests fail. Scripts rely heavily on assumptions, inhibit investigative work, and cost too much. Automating tests won't cut it either; it may be efficient, but still won't dive wide and deep where the problems lie.

This is where exploratory testing adds the most value; however it is still largely, albeit incorrectly, perceived as an undisciplined, ineffective test technique.

In this workshop, I'll discuss why exploratory testing works better than scripted tests, what critical gap it addresses, and how to do it well. Attendees will also experience first-hand how to design exploratory test charters on a risk-based approach.

Improving User Experience through Usability Testing

With the increased number of companies launching web products, many businesses work hard on marketing and pushing traffic to their website and app, but many would find that the users are still leaving. Yet, their traffic analytic data (such as Google Analytics) does not tell them why their users are leaving or failing to use their product.
Our speaker will share various case studies on how companies use usability testing to effectively detect bad usability early, so that the product team can avoid major embarrassment and expensive re-development.
He will share his knowledge on how companies run their usability testing on digital products. There are ways to run inexpensive testing and still get good user insights, be it in-person or remote usability testing. Usability testing (also known as UX Testing) is the cornerstone of User Experience. Many successful businesses use UX Testing to collect data on how people actually use their websites, software and apps, understand why people are leaving or confused. More importantly, applying testing to find out what are the showstoppers in your product development cycle early on.
Many successful companies such as Dropbox & Expedia adopt User-centered Design to deliver good user experience. A good UX creates meaningful experience, a satisfactory memory and encourages the user to continuously use the applications; while bad user experience annoys, reduces the productivity and tarnishes an organization's image. Therefore, today, it is no longer just about building a bug-free product, but creating an easy to use experience for people when they are using your product.

Key Insights and Emerging Trends - World Quality Report 2015-16

In recent years, QA and testing as a service has changed rapidly. Organisations worldwide are now demanding increasing security and business assurance from software testing. The emergence of Digital transformation and highly collaborative DevOps is paving way for extreme level of speed and integration; thus challenging traditional software testing lifecycle. This session provides the key insights and emerging trends as identified in Capgemini's latest "World Quality Report 2015-16". This session would also cover Sector specific trends in Asia and Australia and how industries are shifting gears towards ‘Digital Transformation’ and shorter ‘Time to Market’ and how software testing need to change its momentum to go up in the value chain.

Agile Testing

The Agile Manifesto was published in 2001. It took the software industry a good few years to truly understand what the manifesto means, and the principles behind it. However, choosing and implementing the right set of practices to get the true value from working the Agile way has been the biggest challenge for most!

While Agile has now gone mainstream, and as we get better at the development practices to being Agile, Testing has still been lagging behind in most cases. A lot of teams are still working in the staggered fashion - with testing following next after development completed.

In this workshop, we will learn and share various principles and practices which teams should adopt to be successful in testing on Agile projects.

Agenda :
- What is Agile testing? - Learn what does it mean to Test on Agile Projects
- Effective strategies for Distributed Testing - Learn practices that help bridge the Distributed Testing gap!
- Test Automation in Agile Projects - Why? What? How? - Why is Test Automation important, and how do we implement a good, robust, scalable and maintainable Test Automation framework!
- Build the "right" regression suite using Behavior Driven Testing (BDT) - Behavior Driven Testing (BDT) is an evolved way of thinking about Testing. It helps in identifying the 'correct' scenarios, in form of user journeys, to build a good and effective (manual & automation) regression suite that validates the Business Goals.

Key Learnings for participants in this workshop :
- Understand the Agile Testing Manifesto
- Learn the essential Testing practices and activities essential for teams to adopt to work in Agile way of working
- Discover techniques to do effective testing in distributed teams
- Find out how Automation plays a crucial role in Agile projects
- Learn how to build a good, robust, scalable and maintainable Functional Automation framework
- Learn, by practice, how to identify the right types of tests to automate as UI functional tests - to get quick and effective feedback

Pre-requisites :
- Basic working knowledge and understanding of Agile
