Agile Testing
Practical Approaches to Quality that Get Results

Discussion Topics

“… Imagine dramatically shrinking your testing effort while, at the same time, increasing its velocity; being able to make decisions based on a real-time dashboard without having to re-invent your organization…”

Software is critical in today’s business environment and its success depends heavily on a daunting paradox: provide higher quality software, faster. To achieve this, many organizations are adopting Agile development practices. With the transformation to Agile comes organizational culture change – to some, culture shock. Specifically, how will you transform your traditional quality practices and empower testing teams to thrive in the high-velocity, collaborative, incremental development world of Agile?

Eighteen months ago Borland's leadership team decided to transition its development organization to Agile-- 325 engineers, working on a broad portfolio of projects, and spanning thirteen different locations around the world -- as part of an effort to reduce development costs, boost efficiency and quality, and increase customer responsiveness. A key component of Borland’s transformation was the migration of its quality and testing teams. Today, Borland is in "the thick" of its Agile shift, with nearly 40% of its teams using Agile practices. The results have been dramatic.

This interactive session will cover what Agile testing is, what it’s not, and how some industry leaders are incorporating Agile testing practices into their IT organizations. Some of the topics we’ll cover will include:

·     Unit testing – it’s critical to a projects success, but is it enough?

·     What’s the right amount of automation for organizations of different sizes?

·     How are organizations successfully adapting existing automation practices to better support their Agile approach?

·     What management insights can be gained through different levels of automation?

We’ll also share the real world lessons and benefits that Borland has experienced during its Agile transformation.

Attendee Benefits

Attendees will learn:


·     About the critical role of the tester in an Agile environment

·     Practical approaches to migrate from existing testing practices into Agile.

·     How the use of automation can help teams achieve their goals more quickly, and deliver real-time data to support management visibility into its activities.
