Delivering business outcomes in Digital Transformation initiatives leveraging Testing IP


Diego Lo Giudice - Vice President & Principal Analyst at Forrester Research
Kalyana Rao Konda - President – North America at Cigniti Technologies


The current pandemic has changed business models. Disruptive technologies are making organizations accelerate their investments in IT to ensure not only a consistent user experience but also improved decision making and outcomes. Rapid acceptance of these form the core of Digital Transformation in Enterprises. But this transformation presents unprecedented challenges and risks to Enterprise Quality. Digital Assurance, being radically different from traditional quality assurance, mitigates these risks. This calls for identifying issues early in development lifecycles, test them thoroughly and ensure the systems run as expected.

Continuous testing plays a key role in seamlessly interweaving across all aspects of the development lifecycle. True differentiator is realized when IP of the testing services provider is leveraged to shorten life cycle and deliver value. In this webinar, Cigniti with Forrester Guest will take you through the current issues faced by organizations in going digital and the role of testing. Cigniti will also explain how clients can leverage its proprietary next-gen software testing IP - BlueSwan to achieve business outcomes in enterprise digital transformation initiatives.

Quality Engineering in a SAFe World


Jermaine Oldham - Sr. Director, DevOps, SDLC, & Enterprise Quality Engineering at J.B. Hunt Transport, Inc.
Pradeep Govindasamy - CTO & President at Cigniti Technologies


Rather than thinking “I wrote good code”, organizations need to challenge themselves on “How do I know I wrote good code?”
Agile & DevOps are flexible and responsive methodologies that have rules contrary to the traditional mode of testing. Underpinned on the basic principles of Agile Manifesto, a SAFe has built-in quality as one of its four core principles – bringing Quality Engineering into focus. As the users’ demands for faster time to market increases, the need emerges to shift from assuring quality, to shifting left & engineering quality from the beginning. To accelerate software delivery & improve quality, enterprises need to focus on creating a culture of quality based upon Agile & DevOps best practices. In addition, enterprises also need to focus on breaking down cross organizational team silos to accelerate Quality & Speed via Continual Feedback promoting a quality culture driven by continuous delivery & continuous testing. DevOps helps organizations increase accountability for coding best practices, drive predictable production outcomes, and streamline software delivery via automation. SAFe focuses on bringing lean and agile practices into picture to align the traditional processes with the business goals to manage complex architecture and processes with ease and at speed.

Key Takeaways:

Integrating Automated Testing Into DevOps and Agile


Vibhu Taneja, Director - Head of Transformation, Quality Engineering & Environments at Deutsche Bank


Automation facilitates the ‘test early, test often, test everywhere’ strategy in DevOps & Agile enterprises
Transformation of SDLCs without the transformation of testing approach is just a futile attempt at optimization. Testing used to be an afterthought, a last-minute protocol in legacy SDLCs. Agile and DevOps put testing on forefront, bringing in the ‘shift-left’ mindset. But manual testing takes away the essence of these modern methodologies, thus, making testing an inhibitor rather than a facilitator in delivering quality products at speed. Automated testing upholds efficiency of Agile sprints and empower collaboration in DevOps teams. As enterprises are now adopting an ‘Agile+DevOps’ approach for software development, automated testing becomes the key to a successful and timely deployment. Register for the webinar and join the discussion with Vibhu Taneja and Nanda Padmaraju.

Key Takeaways:

Manual testing is not feasible for a continuous testing strategy. To test everywhere and to test efficiently, automated testing is required in DevOps & Agile enterprises.
With extensive experience in handling complex transformational multi-year programs and business critical transformation projects, Vibhu Taneja and Nanda Padmaraju will help you understand, discover, know, and learn how to integrate test automation into Agile & DevOps.

  • Understand why you should get rid of your traditional testing ways
  • Discover the rewards of bringing automation into the picture
  • Learn how automated testing facilitates business growth
  • Know the ways to integrate automation with your existing approach

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.

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.
