Accelerate Digital Transformation with Agile & DevOps Continuous Testing

Speakers: Diego Lo Giudice (Guest Speaker), Vice President, Principal Analyst Serving Application Development & Delivery Professionals, Forrester and, Kalyana Rao Konda, President - NA East,
Cigniti Technologies.

Client focused organizations need to improve user experience constantly through digital disruption. Delivering features that are relevant and useful in small increments is the high expectation of your users. To achieve this, traditional testing does not cut it. To be able to develop and release continuously, you must test continuously as well. Both speed and accuracy of testing are equally important in the context of Agile & DevOps environments. Test automation has got an important role to play to deliver quality software at high speed. There is also a need to integrate non-functional testing aspects early on in the life cycle through CI/CD implementation. Register for this webinar and join the discussion with our guest Diego Lo Giudice, VP and principal analyst from Forrester and Kalyana Rao Konda, President - NA East, Cigniti Technologies.

Staying one step ahead with DevSecOps

Staying one step ahead with DevSecOps

Speakers: Rajesh Sarangapan,Vice President – Practice & Innovation, Cigniti Technologies, and, Lucas Von Stockhausen, Senior Product Manager, Application Security at Microfocus.

One of the top priorities of the IT leaders today is DevOps compliance. A lot of attention is paid to frequent feature releases, increased application stability, and better resource utilization. However, application security, that needs to be implemented at multiple points in the DevOps workflow, is seen as an inhibitor to the continuous delivery.

According to a Gartner survey “By 2019, more than 50% of enterprise DevOps initiatives will have incorporated application security testing for custom code, up from less than 10% in 2016.”

In this webinar, Rajesh Sarangapani, VP Delivery, Cigniti Technologies and Lucas Von Stockhausen, Senior Product Manager, Application Security, Microfocus discussed how security can be implemented in the DevOps environment.

In this on demand webinar, you will learn about:

  • Explore the existing state of the DevSecOps market
  • Discover the benefits of integrating security into CI/CD cycle
  • Prepare groundwork for a successful DevSecOps transformation
  • How Cigniti is implementing DevSecOps for its customers
  • Explore Microfocus Security tools and their alignment to DevSecOps

Leverage the Power of SAP CBTA to Reduce Release Time & Faster Go-to-Market

A Gartner report articulates that the need to support faster time-to-market with higher quality is driving the demand for effective functional test automation tools. Further, a leading research paper on software testing and automation cites that "Increased Automation levels are the main factors that can lead to higher cost efficiencies for any QA and Testing Team. As QA and Testing organizations become more structured in their approach to testing and their use of test automation and accelerators, the cost of quality goes down."

SAP CBTA is a Test Automation tool launched by SAP as a free built-in under its Solution Manager License. CBTA helps in creation of test scripts which are modular in nature.

CBTA's salient features include:

  • Extended Computer-Aided Test Tool (eCATT) Tests: These tests are made of components and most of the time, no coding is required.
  • A Scriptless automation approach using which non-developers can become automation experts overnight.
  • Fast repair of damaged test scripts as test scripts are composed of reused SAP delivered default components and customer specific screen components.
  • A Test Composition Environment (TCE) that enables chaining of multiple CBTA scripts to create end-to-end business process test scripts.

Cigniti, the global leaders in independent software testing services is an exclusive testing services partner for SAP. With 2200+ Pre-built Test Cases for SAP Suite as part of its proprietary next generation software testing platform, BlueSwanâ„¢, 150+ career SAP Testing professionals, and 120+ projects across SAP products, Cigniti brings a strong testing expertise to the table.

Accelerating Digital Transformation Journey with Digital Assurance QA


Enterprises are undergoing a rapid Digital transformation journey as digitization has become a mandate today as opposed to just being an innovative trend. Based on Industry estimates, spending on “Digital transformation” initiatives will increase to 40% to 50% of the overall IT budget by 2020. CXOs need to deliver on these initiatives in a high speed, iterative, and continuous manner while delivering quality @ speed.

Delivering with high quality @ speed in digital transformation initiatives requires a completely new way of approaching testing because of the trending development approaches (Agile, DevOps), Technologies (Social, Mobile, Cloud, Big Data, Analytics & IoT) & Tools (Significant open source seamlessly coupled with commercial).

Digital Assurance QA calls for the need for a new testing role titled “Digital Test Engineer”. To assure high quality customer experience in digital era, along with traditional types of tests, Digital Test Engineer is required to perform tests like, Social Media Web Services integration tests, Omni Channel testing, A/B testing with multiple variants, High volume & high velocity data tests, Customer Sentiment analysis & experience testing, Devices/sensors/Wearables testing, Big Data testing (Capture, Ingestion, processing & visualization), Responsive Web Design testing (Browsers, wearables, tablets, mobiles etc..), Machine to Machine testing and testing in production.

API Readiness – Gallop and SmartBear Joint Webinar

API Readiness – Cigniti and SmartBear Joint Webinar


Delivering quality software with drastically reduced product development times has never been as challenging as it is today. This puts tremendous pressure on development and test teams. Traditionally IT teams mitigated by compromising on non-functional quality aspects during their first few releases. This approach though was not ideal still allowed IT teams to operate with minimal risks.

However, with the rise of disruptive technologies (via SOA principles) and adoption of digital technologies in the systems of engagement, quality issues today get amplified in the social media resulting in loss of brand credibility and trust. For early risk mitigation, IT teams need pragmatic processes, tools and techniques to support them deliver higher quality.
