  • The DevOps Revolution at Global Payments Jan 3 2019 5:00 pm UTC 44 mins
    Nick Jones, VP Software Delivery Acceleration and Test Engineering & Elise Carmichael, Vice President of Product, QASymphony
    During this webinar, Nick Jones, Vice-President of Software Delivery Acceleration and Test Engineering at a leading payment processor, will share how the Test Engineering team led the organization's first DevOps initiative, gaining buy-in from stakeholders across the business to modernize software development, testing and delivery practices, ultimately reducing deployment time from 14 hours to 4 minutes. During the initiative's early days, the team established a Center of Excellence and a grassroots Community Practice to build trust and reinforce partnerships with development, senior leadership and business stakeholders. Both initiatives have helped improve collaboration and spread new ideas, tools and methods across the business. The result is DevOps pipelines that have significantly reduced delivery timelines and improved production quality, which successfully processes and settles millions of payment transactions daily.

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    - How the test engineering teams initiated the organization's first DevOps project
    - How establishing a Center of Excellence and Community Practice fostered a collaborative approach to transformation
    - How the test engineering teams have significantly reduced performance issues to achieve zero critical production defects

  • Software Metrics Worth Measuring: Aligning Business Goals to Quality Metrics Dec 13 2018 6:00 pm UTC 56 mins
    Adam Satterfield, Technology Program Director at Anthem and Ryan Yackel, Director of Product at QASymphony
    In today’s hyper-competitive software market, companies are ever pressing to deliver products more quickly and efficiently. As a result, it is imperative for organizations to implement a more strategic approach to quality. A strategic approach requires QA teams to gather more comprehensive data on the value of quality tasks in the delivery pipeline. And it often requires a different approach to reporting, and a focus on metrics that help the business measure release readiness and assess overall application quality.

    Join us as Adam Satterfield shares the key metrics today’s software QA teams should be collecting, how to tell the story of your data and how to better understand different audiences within your organization to deliver insights that matter. Ryan Yackel will also dive into how some of these insights can be applied in qTest Insights.

    In this webinar, you will learn how to gather the metrics for 3 key areas to demonstrate business value, including:

    - The cost of a defect
    - Efficiency gains from test automation
    - Risk identification through coverage metrics

  • Shifting QA Into a DevOps World Recorded: Nov 29 2018 59 mins
    Brian Dawson, DevOps Evangelist at CloudBees and Ryan Yackel, Director of Product at QASymphony
    As software practitioners, we often approach a new initiative by thinking about tools and technology first. But when faced with a major undertaking like DevOps transformation, that can become a problem. That’s because we don’t spend enough time thinking about the people implementing those tools, and how they will fundamentally affect processes and culture.

    In this webinar, Brian Dawson, DevOps Evangelist at CloudBees and Ryan Yackel, Director of Product at QASymphony, will discuss the key elements of DevOps transformation and how QA teams can start getting into the mindset of the cultural and process shifts that DevOps brings — and why it’s important to do so before the conversation about tools and technology begins.
  • Using BDD to Test a Robotic Process Automation Solution | Quality Jam London Recorded: Nov 19 2018 42 mins
    Mario Matthee, SQA Architecture and R&D, DVT Global Testing Solutions
    In this session, Mario Matthee shares insights into a real life project that was completed by DVT. DVT’s testers were responsible for the testing of a new investment bot, and in the process we faced many challenges: distributed teams, being too agile, red tape (banks have plenty of this), complex financial models, ever-changing requirements and more.

    Mathee shares the story of how his team took DVT’s first bot live using behavior-driven development methodology and a mixture of manual and automated testing. You will learn that BDD is not as scary as it is made out to be, that there is a place for manual testers in BDD, that you can be agile and still work in your own way.

  • Continuous Load Testing – A Journey to Performance at Scale | Quality Jam London Recorded: Oct 19 2018 54 mins
    Kevin Dunne, General Manager, Tricentis Flood
    Application performance has never been more critical than it is now. Applications of all types are subject to intense scrutiny over their performance, with research showing more than one third of users will leave an app to never return if performance is not satisfactory. Though performance should be a key concern for all software development teams, too few are investing the resources in testing their application at load that are required to identify performance regressions and bottlenecks.

    The good news for teams at all levels of performance testing maturity is that there have never been more options available for performance testers of all levels.

    Whether you are just getting started with your journey or looking to take your performance testing practice to the next level, you won’t want to miss this session highlighting all of the latest tips and tricks in this ever evolving industry.
