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

IDC recently found that over two-thirds of SAP users are already planning their company’s future with SAP S/4HANA and Fiori 2.0. It’s no longer a question of if your SAP architecture will change; it’s a matter of when.
As these SAP advancements are adopted, it’s proving increasingly difficult for testing to keep up. Testers face a number of challenges:
- Automated tests architected for previous generations of SAP platforms must be rebuilt.
- Existing testing processes don’t suit the new faster (and more fragmented) release cycles, with different components evolving at different speeds.
- Within the SAP ecosystem, testing must address new technologies such as SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Ariba, and SAP Hybris.
- Reinvented business processes commonly extend beyond the SAP ecosystem, including APIs, mobile, mainframes, and so on—but legacy testing approaches often do not.
Watch our webinar, Why Modern SAP Architectures Require a New Approach to SAP Testing, to learn the fastest way to transition your existing quality strategies and assets to a modernized approach that’s architected for the latest generation of SAP advances.

DevOps and Agile teams have already recognized that today’s “low-code/no-code” application development approaches are an efficient way to satisfy the relentless demand for more software, faster. Yet, most continue wrestling with the high-maintenance, script-based approach to software delivery and automated testing designed decades ago.
Watch Electric Cloud and Tricentis as they share hard-won lessons that can help any organization climb out of their scripting hole—for both software test automation and the software delivery pipeline. You’ll learn how scriptless and model-based automation can help you escape the script maintenance trap—enabling you to:
- Dedicate more time to creative tasks
- Increase process speed, resiliency ,and scalability
- Achieve a new level of process visibility and control

Breaking up isn’t just hard to do — it can be downright brutal. Sometimes it seems so much easier to maintain the status quo, regardless of how miserable you are. But this way of thinking causes us to stay in relationships that aren’t working for far too long. No, we’re not talking about your personal relationships. We’re talking about your relationship with dated testing technology!
Many enterprises are growing increasingly frustrated by this relationship with HP testing tools — but when is it time to walk away?
Join Ryan Yackel, Director of Product at Tricentis to learn how to spot the telltale signs that it’s time to make a change. We’ll explore symptoms including:
- You’re living in the past, holding onto the memories of how great things used to be, despite the changes around you
- You have different visions for the future
- You’re feeling left behind, unable to pursue new opportunities
- It’s just too much work to maintain the relationship—and it’s draining you
