Working in QA and testing has never been more challenging. Development is turning out new code faster than ever, and test backlogs just keep piling up. Errors that make it into production then need to be traced and fixed, adding to the backlog.
Discover how test automation, service virtualization, and test data management can help you make your testing more agile—and permanently eliminate the excuses.
You will learn how to avoid these common excuses with the following skills:
•The dog ate my data: Simplify test data management and increase test coverage
•That application was before my time: Automate tests for poorly documented systems
•Nobody told me that: Improve test case requirements with visualization
•I didn’t have time to test that: Accelerate testing with test automation and open source code
•It worked fine on my machine: Use service virtualization to create production-like test environments in minutes

Transformational. Impactful. Defining. All of these words have been used to describe service virtualization – a technology so powerful that software engineering teams across the globe rely upon it to help protect their brand and their business.
At 10 years old, service virtualization is now an established technology that has proven its value by:
•Giving software engineering teams unrestricted access to incomplete or unavailable services to complete their tasks in the software lifecycle
•Reducing defect reproduction time
•Reducing the number of defects and increasing test coverage.
Join Theresa Lanowitz, founder of industry analyst firm voke and author of the leading research on service virtualization and its impact in the enterprise, and Nate Lee Director of Product Management for Service Virtualization at CA Technologies to learn about why service virtualization is an absolute must for any organization that wants to compete in the digital landscape and about what service virtualization can do for software engineering teams in the future.

Testing when systems or components are unavailable can be spooky. How do you execute quality tests when the component you need to test against has not yet materialized?
Don’t let missing components or other dependencies scare you away from testing early and often. Use service virtualization to emulate the behavior of specific software components that your application needs to test against. Accelerate test efforts, improve application quality, and reduce costs and risks—so that testing is a treat, not a trick.
Join this web seminar to learn:

With less than a year before the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) goes into effect, many companies are scrambling to figure out how to be compliant with yet another regulation. A better way to approach this (or any) compliance initiative is to understand its basic requirements then search for solutions that will not only help you to meet compliance, but improve your business.
Don’t just become compliant, become better! The EU GDPR is not only an opportunity to evaluate how your teams use personal data for testing, but how those teams can build better data from scratch with faster and better results.
Join our expert, Nathan Devoll from CA Technologies, as he clearly explains the EU GDPR and builds the case for generating new data more quickly without the compliance headaches. You’ll come away with a clear understanding how you can become EU GDPR compliant and build better data, at the same time!
Testing is a critical but very time-consuming part of the release cycle—in fact, 63% of DevOps adopters still cite current QA processes as a bottleneck. Testing hand-offs, communications, validation and feedback are still very manual. How can you streamline your testing workflow to speed the process and enable better visibility into your testing regimen?
View this session to learn how to eliminate the testing logjam and put ‘continuous’ in your testing strategy. We’ll demonstrate an integrated testing workflow in CA Continuous Delivery Director that triggers test cases, virtualizes services, manages test data, runs performance tests, checks for security vulnerabilities, validates against criteria, deploys to production and delivers feedback.
See how you can stay informed at every stage of the application release cycle and speed the delivery of higher-quality apps.
Alex Martins, Continuous Testing CTO, CA Technologies
In today’s agile environments, coding without testing in mind makes you unprepared for the velocity or the volume of changes required to attain continuous testing and delivery. Employing a model-based testing approach gets testing on the fast track and lets you test at the speed of agile.
Unlike traditional testing approaches, model-based testing enables rigorous testing that fits into the same sprint, while allowing stakeholders—from testers and developers to business analysts—to stay in alignment and remain flexible.
View this session and learn how to employ model-based testing techniques in four key areas of testing: requirements engineering, test design automation, agile testing, and test case optimization.
You will also learn how to overcome the key challenges developers and testers face, including:
- Ambiguous requirements
- Limited test coverage
- Test data bottlenecks
- Unavailable system components
- Lack of automation
Shift-left requirements and test case design, along with finding and creating the right test data quickly are key to faster software development. With the right tools and processes, developers and testers can finally make testing a robust advantage within their SDLC.
View session as Bloor Research reviews results of their recent market updates for Test Data Management and Test Design Automation, discussing how test design and test data management are pivotal to achieving your continuous testing initiatives.
