Take a Requirements-Driven Approach to Better Software

Presented by

Jonathon Wright, Director of Digital Assurance, CA Technologies

About this talk

Case studies show that the vast majority of defects creating havoc in production software are not introduced by developers or testers, but by requirements. Rather than alleviating this problem, agile development practices have introduced a new one: Testers must navigate a constant barrage of disparate user stories and change requests. In order for development teams to keep up with constantly changing user needs, requirements must be captured in a format that minimizes miscommunication, reacts quickly to change, and enables subsequent test assets to be derived automatically. Learn a requirements-driven approach that: - Captures user needs in a format already familiar to business analysts - Allows testers to automatically generate optimized test cases, test scripts, data, and expected results - Automatically reflects changes made to the requirements in the test assets

New approaches like DevOps or the adoption of a Digital Transformation strategy are meant to make life easier and simpler to creating quality applications faster with better quality and at lower costs, but do they? Maybe. They’ll help put structure in place for team collaboration or deliver an experience your customers won’t forget, but development teams still face the constraints of development through deployment. From development, testing and the management of releases, organizations and their customers have had to deal with ineffective service delivery, compounded by the silos of development, system administration, and operations. CA solutions for DevOps and Continuous Delivery can help you eliminate constraints across the software delivery lifecycle (SDLC), allow developers, testers and performance teams to work in parallel for faster delivery and more reliable outcomes, all the way through deployment and feedback from IT Operations. Get the information you need when you need it in these thought provoking sessions live or on-demand. Be a member of channel to receive updates, best practices and advice from industry thought leaders on how to eliminate constraints across your SDLC.
