Demonstrations, Experiments, and Software Testing

Speakers:

Michael Bolton - Lead Consultant at DevelopSense
Kalyana Rao Konda - President at Cigniti Technologies

Abstract:

What's the webinar all about?

What's the difference between a demonstration and an experiment? Sounds like philosopher-talk, doesn't it? So why should that difference matter to managers, developers, teams, and... testers?

Alas, in software development, we often call both demonstrations and experiments by the same name: "tests".

In this presentation, Michael Bolton explains the difference, and how scientists (and, yes, philosophers of science) came to differentiate between demonstration and experiment. Of the two, one is designed to show us something that we already know; the other is intended to help us learn things we want or need to know. The difference is crucial because the purpose of testing must not be merely to show that the product can work. We test to learn about the product so that we can understand it better, and address problems before it's too late.

In the second half of the presentation, Kalyan shares insights on how Cigniti is assisting leading enterprises globally including the Fortune 500 in their Software Testing & Quality Engineering initiatives and accelerating their digital transformation.

Building The Smart Fabric Of 5G Connectivity With Experience Assurance

Building The Smart Fabric Of 5G Connectivity With Experience Assurance

A century after the 1918 flu, another pandemic struck the world. However, there is a world of a difference in the way the two pandemics have been navigated through and controlled, especially in terms of crisis communication. Today, we no longer need to dispatch boy scout armies to announce safety protocols and infection control guidelines to the general public. All the information that we need is available on the internet with only a few taps, sometimes even with just a voice instruction to smart assistants like Siri and Alexa.

In all fairness, hundred years seem like an ample period of time to bring about such a major transition. But since the invention of the world wide web about 30 years ago, the degree and scale of evolution of network technology have been unprecedented. As we gear up to leverage the 5G experience of negligible latency and real-time data transmission, it is interesting to see that the internet has transitioned from being a luxury almost a decade back to an absolute necessity to keep up with the constantly changing consumer needs and market dynamics.
