Title: Quality Enablement Webinar: Testing Lean from Planning to Production



Under the pressure of increased release cadences, increasing software complexity and the move to SAAS many of the techniques QA has traditionally used have proven too costly and inefficient to scale.   To compensate testers must streamline their processes, integrate tightly with their development team and use a variety of telemetry and metrics to measure the success of the product throughout the development lifecycle

Join this webinar to discover how you can:

  • Develop test plans that focus the development effort and reduce risk
  • Find regressions with fewer, more reliable tests and defense in depth
  • Drive quality using telemetry and engineering systems
  • Find high-quality bugs using streamlined exploratory testing

To remain competitive organizations must develop extremely efficient Test organizations that focus the development effort on delivering maximum customer value.
