Overview of the event

We recently wrapping up 2019 as the year of digital quality. We talked about how digital transformation is going to bring even more drastic shifts in how we do software delivery. And how your organization needs to brace up to bring agile models to work in order to release higher quality software faster through automated testing.

A key trend that will sweep over to bring economies of scale, speed and intelligence will be automated testing followed by AI. We've seen a massive movement from manual to automation in the last couple of years, as manual could not handle this scale of change. Manual testing matrices are too big to approximate manually, take a long time, and are very complex to handle for applications like Uber, Snapchat, and Twitter that are scaling at the speed of light.

Manual testing might not be able to meet the demand of a plethora of web browsers, devices, operating systems, screen resolutions, and responsive designs. And to deliver quality at the speed of digital, there will be a need to bring in the right automated testing initiatives. But automation is vast and there are several nuances to it. Which nuances will be more pronounced in 2019?

Automation summit will help you get industry best practices in Test Automation and the latest tools and techniques to achieve it.

X Topic Abstract

X Topic Abstract

From the adoption across industries to its depth of purpose in enterprises, RPA is firmly embedded in the strategy of business, operations and IT alike. From performing reconciliations, to preparing reports, sending statement, and even interacting with customers, RPA - BOTS are becoming increasingly sophisticated. For a RPA code or a BOT to run and perform important business operations, interact with customer etc. requires a very high degree of validation rigor and risk containment strategy. However, is such a strategy commonplace? Do organizations have a rigorous mechanism to test, validate and certify BOTS? Are there robust checks and control to identify and contain risks of BOTS deployed in live business environment? . This presentation will discuss the risks and challenges of testing BOTS. And the pros and cons of different test patterns and framework that provides highest levels of confidence in the assuring RPA BOTS.

For the past 2 years, I have transformed my company from waterfall to agile/DevOps so I will be speaking from experience.

X Topic Abstract

Industry, customers and the entire world are facing two combined and contemporary revolutions:

Internet of Things and Robots. Between them, a third, silent, revolution is already insinuating itself as a liquid into interstices of daily routine. If we can think to IoT is an environment, and to robots as bodies, artificial intelligence is instead the mind that governs the latter and explicate itself thanks to the former one.

In this scenario, Vocal Interfaces (a.k.a. Digital or Virtual Assistants) could be considered the most disruptive tools among AIs. In up to five years, this technology - born for smartphone - will be the reference point for every search, question, and communication, in the work environment as in the everyday life. Siri, Cortana, Echo, Google Home and many others are already here, and they are improving thanks to training their skills and capabilities directly with users. They scan every surrounding sound and record it, to allow machine learning extracting big data, defining patterns and creating users’ behaviour profiles.

In few years, vocal interfaces will become an indispensable tool for everybody and for every business, as the smartphone did ten years ago. they will be a personal/work secretary who will filter every contact between the user and the world and who will control every automation, on humans’ behalf. If we consider that they will be crossed with tracking technologies, wearables and – in a near future - with nanotech, we can have a taste of the power (and the potential threats) driven by our new day life assistants. As in every age, who controls information, controls everything. In this framework, vocal interfaces will play a key role in interacting with repetitive – or habitual – tasks, in assembly lines as well as in offices. At every level of the internal processes, the business management will slowly delegate tasks, and even decisions, to these new technological actors.

Business company are on the edge of this silent revolution as well as consumers, and possibly the formers are affected by this ongoing change even more. The companies’ Data Strategy must be updated considering all the relevant information these tools, and their service suppliers, will intercept. All the business branches of both individual and technical knowledge inside a company will have to be properly protected from information "sniffing" and external influences. Data Protection, Cybersecurity and BYOD policy are further hot topic to consider in this scenario, that transversally cross all the companies’ strategic assets.

The speaker will provide an overview of the matter and its relevant issues, with a focus on business related interests in this field. So, after a brief introduction on vocal interfaces and how they work, the it will be given several theoretical tools to frame the matter in the legal realm, and, then, the speaker will deepen the practical issues that the industry will face, and some possible solutions. Several tips on strategic planning will be also given during the speech, as well as will be provided a space for answering questions from audience.

X Topic Abstract

This talk will look at how the recent field of RPA has emerged to fill some gaps between software engineering and AI. We will compare and contrast RPA to traditional software engineering workflows as a way to show some potential advantages and shortcomings. We will also show discuss differences between RPA and current AI technologies but where they may fit together.

X Topic Abstract

Testing is traditionally where the rubber meets the road in software delivery. When a testing mindset is embraced by the entire team a real agile transformation happens. A 1 hour workshop would be an ideal way to share content and allow participants to learn experientially.
