    The Top 5 Don’ts of Software Testing
    Melissa Tondi, Professional Services Manager, Rainforest QA Recorded: Dec 5 2018 61 mins
    Over the years, techniques, methodologies, and ways of thinking have been introduced to the software testing industry that added value at one point, but they have now become stale, less impactful, or even downright counterproductive.

    It’s time to update your testing views.

    Watch this webcast to learn different approaches and recommendations to help you either remove these harmful strategies and replace them with more meaningful ones, or modernize them to ensure innovation is a driving force within your testing team.

    In this session, we explore the top five don’ts of software testing:
    -- Don’t be the enabler
    -- Don’t automate everything
    -- Don’t have QA-only sprints or cycles
    -- Don’t own all testing
    -- Don’t hide information

    Modernizing SAP with scriptless testing
    Thomas Koeppner, Micro Focus Recorded: Jul 19 2018 49 mins
    SAP modernization presents a combination of business challenges and technical challenges, both of which must be overcome in order to achieve a successful transformation. For best results, the business experts and the technical experts must work together on the transformation, and in particular, when testing updates to the SAP system. Scriptless testing is the most effective way to bridge the gap between those with an intimate understanding of the business processes, and those more at home with the technical details of SAP.

    This webinar will explore some of the challenges of testing SAP systems, and explain how scriptless test automation, using Micro Focus Business Process Testing (BPT), allows business users to define the processes, flows and data to be tested, while automation engineers implement the automated components that form each test’s building blocks.

    Takeaways
    • Understand the challenges of testing of critical systems such as SAP
    • Discover how scriptless testing can bring technical and business experts together to create effective automated tests
    • Understand how the components underlying scriptless test can be reused across different tests, and maintained with ease
