Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

The DevOps Revolution at Global Payments

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

  • Simplify Test Data Management for SAP Recorded: Aug 21 2019 50 mins
    Andreas Günther, Director of TDM Consulting, Anthem
    Finding relevant test data is one of the great pains of testing, and GDPR’s restriction on testing with unmasked production data makes a difficult situation even worse. Once you finally receive (or create) appropriate test data, you still have to inject it into the testing framework and transform it across end-to-end tests.

    The complexities of secure, stateful TDM are further exacerbated in SAP environments, where business processes may cross SAP GUI and SAP Fiori, mainframes, and other packaged apps such as Salesforce— and test data may be scattered across Word files, Excel files, databases, flat files, and SAP systems.

    Join this webinar to learn strategies for simplifying test data management across end-to-end tests that involve SAP. You’ll learn:

    - How to choose the best test data approach (synthetic, masked…) for each task
    - Strategies for managing stateful data across end-to-end tests
    - Options for extracting and masking data from SAP environments such as SAP S/4HANA, SAP NetWeaver, and even SAP BW/4 HANA
  • Open Source Testing – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly Recorded: Aug 14 2019 33 mins
    Elise Carmichael, Enterprise Evangelist, Tricentis
    At some point we all commit to automating some of the riskiest use cases because, let’s be honest, something bad happened in production. But how do you proceed? Do you standardize your projects and teams on a single framework or framework style such as BDD? Do you let each team do what they think is best? How will you maintain this new behemoth that you’re about to create? Learn how to answer these and other critical “getting started” questions — as well as track the KPIs vital for demonstrating the ROI on your automation investment.
  • Does the Release Candidate Have an Acceptable Level of Risk? Recorded: Aug 8 2019 51 mins
    Wayne Ariola, Chief Marketing Officer, Tricentis
    If you’re still asking, “Are we done testing?” then you’re asking the wrong question. In today’s highly-accelerated delivery processes, you need to be asking:

    Does the release candidate have an acceptable level of risk?

    In other words, how does the latest round of changes really impact the overall end-user experience? Could releasing a particular build cause palpable damage to the business? 

    If you’re not confident that you can answer these critical questions accurately, join Wayne Ariola to learn how you can attain the required insight. 

    You’ll learn:
    - How to establish a baseline to measure risk in the context of application delivery
    - How risk coverage differs from code and test coverage
    - Why, where, and how to measure risk within the automated release process
  • Software Testing – Reinvented for DevOps Recorded: Jul 31 2019 48 mins
    Wayne Ariola, CMO, Tricentis
    Agile and DevOps change the game for software testing. For Agile, each team needs to test faster and earlier. With DevOps, the organization requires automated insight into the business risks associated with every release.

    Hear Tricentis CMO Wayne Ariola discuss what’s required to reinvent software testing for DevOps. We’ll explore:

    - Forrester research on what quality practices and metrics separate DevOps leaders from laggards
    - An expanded definition of Continuous Testing for DevOps…beyond test automation
    - What you gain by integrating your testing efforts—from BDD and open-source dev-testing to scriptless functional test automation and load testing—across teams, projects and applications with the Tricentis Continuous Testing Platform
  • Tomorrow’s Tester: The Evolution of Work Recorded: Jul 25 2019 33 mins
    Jeff Wilkinson, Managing Director at Accenture; Wayne Ariola, CMO at Tricentis
    The testing industry is flooded with doomsday predictions: “The Testing Center of Excellence is dead! Testers will not be needed in the future! Robots will replace testers!”

    While there is no question that today’s technologies have driven the evolution of the job, it is increasingly evident that successfully leveraging them will only extend the need for skilled testers. We are rapidly infusing bots, artificial intelligence and machine learning into quality processes – but doing so meaningfully requires a sound quality strategy and skilled testers at the helm.

    In this session, Jeff Wilkinson, Managing Director at Accenture, explores what all this means for the future of testing, and what today’s testers must do in order to stay relevant. You’ll also hear about Accenture’s “Touchless Testing” approach, which employs these concepts.
  • Chick-fil-A: From Cold Fries To Broken Code, Quality Matters Recorded: Jul 16 2019 20 mins
    Maria Boykins, Sr. Team Lead, Quality Engineering, Chick-fil-A

  • Continuous Delivery: The One Question You Must Answer Recorded: Jun 13 2019 59 mins
    Wayne Ariola, CMO, Tricentis
    Most developers would tell you that their code is ready to release at any time. Most testers would disagree. This leads us to the single most important question associated with Continuous Delivery:

    Does the release candidate have an acceptable level of risk?

    In a highly-automated, rapid delivery process, you can’t make release decisions based on multiple, independent, and primarily binary (pass or fail) tests. You need a rapid assessment of the impact to the end-user experience—and immediate insight into whether releasing a particular build could cause palpable damage to the business.

    If you’re not confident that you can answer this critical question accurately—on-demand—then Tricentis to learn how you can attain the required insight.
    We’ll cover:

    - How to establish a baseline to measure risk in the context of application delivery
    - How risk coverage differs from code and test coverage
    - Why, where, and how to measure risk within the automated release process
