Overview of the event

We recently wrapped 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 2020?

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

Now a days, API testing is the integral part of any Microservice based applications. Following the inverted pyramid, API/ Webservice testing has been proven out to the most stable and most important. There are so many different tools and frameworks available that its overwhelming. Choosing and developing a good test architecture and framework is the vital part of an Automation strategy. In this session, we will discuss through the API testing fundamentals, go over a sample API testing strategy and how you can build a robust API testing suite that will mimic the UI data flow.

X Topic Abstract

The cloud system is your company's most critical technical transition in this decade. Cloud access takes far more than just a handful of best practices.

Make sure you have a team with all the expertise, resources, and procedures required for the successful execution of your cloud system before you start. Shifting a database strategically into the cloud will deliver great results both for the IT department and overall for the company. Nonetheless, the difficulties of getting there and then handling Cloud resources can be a challenging barrier to cloud adoption. A growing number of organizations, particularly when used for information management and analytics, commit to the cloud as a computing platform. It is necessary for an organization to proceed with caution when transitioning to the cloud. Whether your company is looking at one workload, multiple workloads, or a full range of products, it needs more than just a technological understanding to transform from the premises into cloud-based IT. As the number of devices and systems which transmit and create data grows exponentially, the stress on databases grows.

The more data the company acquires, the more controls will be needed to run the data flow. Successful cloud adoption dictates a focus and a detailed plan, as it can cost and take time to take a single misstep. Here are some good practices to help DBA conquer those obstacles and experience an efficient, automated database in the cloud:

1. Develop a key strategy
2. Build trust with the provider of cloud services
3. Be aware of the changes
4. Turn to a positive approach
5. Get a single perspective and vision
