Digital transformation remains a top priority and business leaders have now experienced the importance of business continuity in a world they cannot always foresee.

Core enterprise systems have for many been in need of major renovation for a long time. This project is difficult and expensive, and it is fundamental that it works to run the business. But to move on to the digital age it is crucial that the core is ready to cope with the new complexity in the outer layer of IT.

Projects have been reprioritized, but for most remain top priority to secure long-term business competitiveness. The question is how business has changed, and what new elements and needs must be taken into consideration.

Changing the rules of testing: How prioritizing software quality can lead to business success

Chris Trueman

SVP LiveCompare, Tricentis

Software’s place in the enterprise has extended beyond traditional systems of record to become a revenue driver and the preferred tool for building customer relationships. But when it comes to how the software delivery team is structured and prioritized, it’s often the case that testing continues to play second fiddle to development. 

Learn why it’s to your entire organization’s advantage to prioritize software quality and give testing a leading role.

In this session, Chris Trueman, SVP of LiveCompare and Packaged Applications at Tricentis, will show you how to consistently release high-quality software, even as delivery methods evolve and release times shrink.

You'll learn about:

  • The evolution of test automation
  • Using AI to improve production application quality
  • Making testing an integral part of your agile DevOps process.
