Why Should You Watch The Webinar?

Businesses today are making all attempts to improve their present IT initiatives and techniques to stay competitive and accelerate digital transformation while embracing new technologies and software development approaches. This has led to exponential growth in the digitization drive for almost every sector. As a result, there has been the development of massive interest in software quality due to concerns such as security, quality, speed, and costs.

In this topic, we will discuss how businesses that adopt DevOps can provide higher-quality releases with fewer performance issues and how best DevOps practices can enhance customer experience. We will also talk about how virtualization facilitates testing and eases project management, and how the future of software development and testing, as well as IT project management, is dependent on service virtualization. As companies race to become ‘digital-first’ with software quality as a strategic enabler, effective test data management (TDM) becomes a game changer.

Now more than ever, there is a need for robust TDM solutions, which allow organizations to provide unrestricted access to high-quality test data, whilst protecting against the risk of customer PII breaches. In this context, this topic will also delve into how investing in an effective TDM strategy in enterprises can reduce the cost of storing and processing test data, increase coverage and enhance test cycle efficiency for delivery excellence.
