Using Intelligent Test Suite Generation to Shorten Testing Time Significantly

Today businesses are leveraging agile software development methodologies to ensure a continuous but ready to use software for customers at extremely fast paced intervals of time to sustain business commitments. Hence the ability to ensure optimal test coverage of business processes is essential. Generation of smart test scenarios that covers the multiple paths of business logic is very crucial. Test case design constitutes a large part of testing cost. It is generally agreed that manual testing is becoming a bottleneck and is a frequent cause of project delays especially for large programs. Therefore, automatic test case design is essential to ensure the quality of large software products and to contain the rapidly growing testing costs.

Testlets for BigData

Businesses are struggling to grapple with the growing phenomenal information explosion. Conventional database systems and business intelligence applications have given way to horizontal databases, columnar designs and cloud-enabled schemas powered by sharding techniques. QA becomes equally challenging as BigData is still evolving and it might take few more years for us to see products / tools for testing BigData. The objective of this session is to provide TestLets which can be sought as point-solutions for specific problems. The TestLets focus around data acquisition, data cataloging, data sampling & quality in real time.

11th Annual International Conference on Software Testing

The 11th Annual International Software Testing Conference (STC 2011), organized by QAI in association with Edista Institute (ETI), will take place from 01 - 02 December, 2011 in Bangalore.

In its 11 th year, STC 2011 focuses on the theme of Testing Enterprise 2.0 - Getting Ready for the Quantum Leap 2011 - Year of 25th Anniversary of Quantum Computer. In the current world of continual change, computing has become complex and extremely inseparable from our daily lives. In fact, today our lives depend of computing so much than ever before making the need for testing very imminent.

Building on the theme, STC 2011 focuses on building a narrative to piece together the three corner stones of future business opportunity, growth and continuity - Innovation, Institutionalization, and Inorganic Growth. The focus of the Testing Enterprise 2.0 is to focus on the ability of the organizations, practitioners and leaders to adopt, learn and lead in the wake of the new paradigms. It has become imperative for organizations to rapidly and efficiently adapt to changes. Practitioners are forced to examine challenges holistically rather than reductively to understand relationships to better frame the solutions. At the conference practitioners, organizations share and learn the current best practices, and the future possibilities on how to manage not only Agility and Achievement, but focus on adapting and taming the new challenges of change.

STEP-IN Forum’s Hyderabad Software Testing Conference

The objective of this session is to enlighten the users about Cloud Patterns – Need vs. Adoption, Marketing vs. Reality, ROI vs. Cost. Raj will also discuss the elevation of QA from Validation / Verification to Feasibility Study / ROI Decision Making. How can QA become the trusted advisor for a CIO / CFO in safeguarding investments? What should be the checks & balances on Cloud Adoption and Migration? There will also be few insights on Cloud Offerings in the world of TaaS.

We plan to make this session very interactive due to the nature of this topic. There will be a 30 minute slide presentation and 45 minute active discussions with the participants. Raj will moderate this active community discussion with guidelines on how to present your observations.
