Forrester points out that three-quarters of the global enterprises are either exploring or already in the process of embarking on a digital transformation journey. The primary goal of a digital transformation is to improve customer experience, gain new clients and retain those already existing. Further objectives are to cut costs, have continuous improvement of processes and enable a faster software delivery model.
For modern organizations engaged in a digital transformation, use of Agile and DevOps frameworks is making it possible to obtain a healthier and more stable digital service as well as an improved customer experience. Quality assurance and testing in this context are key success factors for ensuring a smooth and successful digital transformation.
The presentation will among other things, discuss the following:
- For digital, it’s not just speed, but “quality-at-speed” that matters.
- Why you need Agile + DevOps together with Testing to make it all happen.
- How QA capabilities (people, process, technologies) are changing, to deliver quality-at-speed.
- Tackling customer experience testing as part of “quality-at-speed” - fact or myth?
