      Stop Writing Tests. Build Models Instead – Automatically at Speed! Alex Martins, Pre-Sales Advisor and Josh Taylor, Principal Product Owner, CA Technologies Recorded: Feb 12 2018 4:00 pm UTC 41 mins
    • Why do you keep on writing requirements and tests, when you can automatically build models, way faster instead? No one wants to write requirements and create (and maintain) regression test cases by hand – especially for legacy apps … forever!

      •Help you put the brakes on manually creating and maintaining tests. Finally!
      •Allow you to run your ‘everyday’ regression tests, and build models representing your regression test cycle. Automatically!
      •Enable you to just maintain and enhance models that deliver better coverage with less tests. Simply!

    • Managing Technical Writing Outsourcing in an Agile Environment
      Managing Technical Writing Outsourcing in an Agile Environment Barry Saiff and Fred Williams Recorded: Dec 8 2016 11:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    • Agile development offers advantages. Short cycles, cross-disciplinary teams, frequent short meetings, and input from users can lead to satisfied customers and faster product delivery. Technical writing outsourcing is often late to the game–with other teams already globally distributed. Even when technical writers are co-located with developers, process issues can pose obstacles. For example, without a mechanism for notifying writers of user interface changes, accuracy suffers.

      Can technical writing outsourcing work in an Agile environment, even if writers are off-shore and developers are not? Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, Barry Saiff, CEO of Saiff Solutions, and Fred Williams, CEO of Williams Technical, for this free one-hour webinar. Our presenters will discuss how innovative organizations are successfully merging technical writing outsourcing with Agile development.

      You’ll learn the key steps to success in technical writing outsourcing, how outsourced writers integrate into Agile teams, and how to manage these approaches to improve quality, save time, and reduce costs.
