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.
Is it still a Jetsons’ future or is it here? Executing mundane tasks, scouring the web, crunching data, and understanding voice commands are all just the start of the future of work we cannot even imagine. Join Brandon Nott from UiPath as he explores the possible and shows you the future, today! This session will define the roles of unattended, attended and hybrid robots and engage your imagination with real world use cases.
What does it take to get started on the RPA journey? Is it really worth it or is it just hype? Join Pothana Kambhampati from PwC as he discusses his experience working with industry-leading clients from helping them choose the right vendor to building full-fledged Center of Excellences. This session will cover when RPA is the answer or not, proof of concepts, scaling, and working with a virtual workforce.
Pothana Kambhampati is a Sr. Consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). Focused in the Technology, Media, & Telecom industries, Pothana is an Operations Transformation consultant. He has worked with a number of top technology companies in helping them break into the automation space that is uniquely best for them. In the recent couple of years, he has been responsible for automating 50+ bots within Finance teams of various top tech companies. Pothana is experienced in evaluating process complexity, process/design documents, bot development, testing, support & maintenance, and working with leaders & executives to setup an Automation Center of Excellence to scale company-wide.
Nowadays, most of the organizations are still carry on their testing without test automation, but this means also without the possibility to implement best QA & Test Automation best practices.
If you would like to start a test automation effort in your organization with formal and mature process, this paper will help you to start and not die trying!
Did you know that failed automation efforts are the main reason that QA managers get fired? This paper uses a Scrum methodology to help understand which steps are required to perform first and why in order to introduce automation in a seamless way and to avert common pitfalls which lead to automation failures.
In the process, this paper will introduce and discuss an Android Open Source project “UP Automation Framework” (a wrapper of libraries) developed by students of Artificial Intelligence engineering on “The University Panamericana campus Aguascalientes” that will help you implement a test automation framework and structure in your organization.

Performance engineering was fairly straightforward in traditional waterfall projects. You would performance test at the end of the project after development and all functional testing was complete. This approach simply cannot work in the age of DevOps and Agile. Release cycles happen too quickly. Code changes too much. Data preparation takes too long. Results analysis is too slow. You need new approaches. Performance engineering needs a new paradigm. And you need to rethink the role of the performance engineer.
Performance engineering needs to shift left and shift right. It must become truly end to end.
Gopal Brugalette shares strategies for incorporating performance activities at every stage of your software process. You need to start focusing on it at the Agile story level and then continuously through development and testing. It needs to become part of the definition of done. The DevOps focus needs to continue through to production monitoring and the customer experience. You need a continuous feedback loop from testing and production to development. Performance engineers need to change as well. You have to become tester, data scientist, consultant and teacher. Join Gopal to learn how to transform your performance engineering organization to meet the new challenges.
Gopal is a Sr. Performance Architect/Project Manager/Software Engineer. His experience spans engineering, architecture, team leadership, data science and consulting in eCommerce, Finance and SAAS industries. His responsibilities have included preparing sites for peak events, leading agile development teams, consulting with Fortune 1000 companies, driving continuous improvement, developing machine learning models, developing frameworks in AWS and applying performance engineering activities to Agile and DevOps processes. He has presented at numerous industry events and been featured in online magazines. Previous to IT, he was a researcher at the Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics. Outside of IT, he enjoys developing his permaculture farm and woodworking.
In recent years, RPA has changed the way businesses integrate new technologies into their existing processes. The capability of mimicking human action on a UI display can improve efficiency and resource consumption. However, as with any new technologies, there are some precautions to take before using RPA at scale. Fully understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the tool can help leadership plan a holistic implementation model to achieve their strategic objectives.
