Pharmaceutical companies play an ever increasing role in the treatment and prevention of illnesses. Many leading Pharma companies depend on third-party organizations, like the Almac Group, to help conduct testing, research and trials to improve the overall drug development process.
Almac is a global leader in contract pharmaceutical development and manufacturing services, and recently deployed scriptless test automation to improve its core business application testing in support of its overall business agility goals.
This session will focus on how Almac and TurnKey Solutions partnered to successfully shorten test cycles and improve test outcomes - supporting more rapid deployment cycles for core applications and end-to-end business critical processes.
Shauna Quinn, Software Test Manager for Almac, will share recent results and 4 lessons learned in Almac’s implementation of scriptless test automation, including:
How to build a better alternative to manual testing methods, which for Almac, previously took 20 people and 12 weeks to run
How to streamline operations and shrink testing cycles from multiple weeks to only 3-4 days
How automation helped to quickly and easily validate core business systems using a comprehensive regression suite
How this intuitive software provided a solid testing strategy moving forward
DevOps, and its predecessor Agile development, provide a gateway to the best practice of “find and fix early.” However, allocating sufficient time and resources to thoroughly test your enterprise applications is a continual challenge – given the frequency and volume of change. With resource constraints and the limitations of today’s existing tools, many business-critical applications go minimally tested while the quality of these applications is fundamental to the business’ success.
In this session we’ll discuss 5 key strategies for improving QA and Delivery within a DevOps environment. Learn how to leverage advanced data-driven testing to dynamically validate your applications, while allowing you to easily and rapidly create and maintain your functional tests.
We’ll cover in-depth the features and integration of scriptless test automation to enable:
Broad Usability – reduce the time it takes to create and maintain tests, simplifying test development for the entire DevOps team
Reusability – build a growing library of test assets that can be leveraged by all users, to support multiple applications and end-to-end tests
Simplified Test Maintenance – easily detect changes with each new software iteration, and update tests automatically to ensure minimal delays in the DevOps process
Data-Driven – run multiple data sets against the same test and increase test coverage and agility
Few organizations have effectively leveraged test automation to its fullest potential. This is often due to the fact that many of the available QA tools aren’t designed to offer the breadth of coverage needed or the flexibility to keep pace with dynamic changes in business applications. Additionally, recognizing and monetizing the value of automation has often been difficult due to the lack of consistent, quantifiable methods.
In this webinar, we will share ways in which to build a more responsive, scriptless test automation framework within your current ALM strategy and how to measure its value, continuously across your business.
In this session, we will discuss:
•How to assess your current state of test automation readiness
•How to develop a plan that will optimize test automation, people and processes
•How a data-driven, scriptless test technology can benefit any sized organization
•How to develop and maintain high levels of regression testing needed, using dynamic automated methods
•How to leverage the best mix of tools and methods to accelerate success
•How to quantify the value of automation for your business
Private cloud doesn't have to be complex. In fact, it shouldn't be complex, because your customers just want it to work. While there are countless different ways to build on-premise clouds, there's a secret most vendors have missed: private cloud should be easy. Easy to buy, easy to deploy, easy to manage and easy to use.
This session will cover the real USPs of private cloud for SMB and enterprise customers, and introduce a new turnkey, white label 'private cloud in a box' solution that combines the OnApp cloud management platform with Intel server, storage and networking products.
- what makes a cloud a cloud?
- removing complexity and adding value
- use cases & selling points

Improving application quality and minimizing business risk is made all the more challenging by the continuous stream of support packs, enhancement packs, and custom transports needed to align SAP applications with the growing demands of the business. These changes require a constant need to test. Unfortunately, your testing resources don’t increase at the same rate, hence the need to find new ways to test smarter and ultimately, do more with less.
Join us for an informative webinar where we will share how impact-based analysis and scriptless testing work together to provide a more intelligent, dynamic approach to SAP testing. We will review how next-generation technology can be used to help you:
Accelerate Testing - using pre-built content and pre-built test cases to start testing your critical business processes sooner.
Test across the enterprise - support your SAP applications as well as legacy, packaged and custom solutions; leveraging one platform, one process.
Automatically detect changes to your SAP systems – identify which effected business processes are most "at risk”; and quickly update test sets for improved test coverage.
Reduce test maintenance - Save up to 80 percent of your time and costs with intelligent auto-maintenance features.
In this webinar, Howard Partridge is going to reveal how he turned his own business into a multi-million dollar, predictable, profitable, turnkey operation.

What it really means to be a strategic HR leader.
HR leaders who want a seat at the executive "strategy planning" table need to become Human Resources critical thinkers who align their people plans (HR strategy) with the strategic goals and profitability of the company. (Look at any HR discussion forum, and you’ll find some version of this question: How can HR get a “seat at the table” and become a strategic business partner?) But most HR leaders find themselves occupied in a problem-solving role as employee reactionaries; "we need a new hire"... "we need disciplinary help" "We have a problem employee"... "We need our managers to get training on the new compliance laws." Far too often, people-pleasing HR leaders fail to cultivate the mindset necessary for creating strategy that adds value to the overall organizational success. This not only stems from traditional HR expectations which focus on people, compliance, and problems but also from HR leaders not managing their own strategic value and intentionally building their department and initiatives on a profitability mindset. Companies that want to ensure future success will look to HR to furnish better succession plans, more effective methods of retaining employees, programs to improve employee engagement, and refined performance management and training processes. (If they don’t find what they need from HR, they will reduce budgets, outsource, and shift responsibilities to other service departments.) HR departments won’t see improved budgets or more power and responsibilities until there’s a shift in HR mindset and a focus on HR Strategy that aligns with business needs.
This relaxed chat addresses how HR leaders can earn that seat at the table by focusing on profitability, innovation, and the growth of the company.
