• Reuven Ben Menachem, Co-Founder and CEO, Otoma
• Gabriella Szasz, Global Head of Agile Test Management, Citi
• Panel moderator: Lisa Wolf, Head of Quality Engineering Marketing, Amdocs
We'll be setting the agenda for the day in this opening session and discussing the key challenges facing banks and other financial firms in their transition to business-driven development. The technical challenges: How can they implement AI and model-based engineering to dramatically increase test coverage? And the cultural challenges: What does shift-left work in the real world as large teams strive to combine new technologies and new ways of working alongside legacy platforms?
Gabriella Szasz will share insights from her wide experience working at Wells Fargo, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and now Citi.
We'll also hear from fintech pioneer and banking expert Reuven Ben Menachem on how he believes cognitive AI and model-based engineering will revolutionize software quality engineering.
And pulling together the threads of the discussion: Dror Avrilingi will describe how firms can create a road-map for transformation. He'll explain how you can plan the move from a traditional center-of-excellence model for quality engineering to create the centre-of-enablement that defines business-driven quality engineering.
Speaker: Stephen Ramey, VP Cyber Risk Engineering, Sompo International
Stephen will review how Sompo has evolved its cyber risk insurance products in the wake of the President's 2021 executive order on cybersecurity, recent high-profile vulnerabilities including Log4j and the Microsoft Exchange Zero Day vulnerabilities, and how financial firms can best embed security into their DevOps platforms and processes. These major cybersecurity events generate countless data points that can be aggregated, analyzed, and interpreted to assess the maturity of cybersecurity practices within an organization or as an industry whole. Structuring the information is critical to the successful detection of trends and improvement of cybersecurity practices.
Speaker: Shadman Fahim, Vice President & Private Wealth Management Digital Mobile QA Lead, Goldman Sachs, introduced by Gregg Swensen, Senior Account Executive with Perforce
Applications designed for private banking customers have to combine a 5-star user experience with advanced and complex features. Shadman will be explaining how Goldman Sachs accelerated test execution, in partnership with Perfecto and the Perfecto "Black Belt" team - a team with a long history of helping financial firms boost their mobile and web application. In this session, we'll be looking at the high level testing adopted by Goldman Sachs and zooming in on the example of the iOS 15 security upgrade surrounding passcode entry requirements.
Speaker: Ramkumar Ayyadurai, Director, Engineering Productivity and DevOps, Equities, Prime Service and Futures, Citi
All large financial enterprises face a similar challenge as they modernize their legacy stack; how to build a scalable and reliable application in the distributed cloud infrastructure and microservices world.
Standard software and performance testing is not enough to meet these demands, particularly when it comes to finding the "unknown unknowns" in software risk management across the thousands of apps large firms typically have to manage.
Ram believes that chaos engineering could be a big part of the answer to these questions. He'll provide a general introduction to chaos engineering, and share his experience of how teams can integrate chaos engineering into their SDLC and manage a “mindset shift” across development and production support in their organization for improving reliability. He will dive deeper into how Citi's chaos engineering platform works, using the example of chaos testing for low latency trading and payment platforms. He'll cover tests for different layers of app complexity (the application, the network and the infrastructure), and how you can automatically create and automate chaos testing scenarios based on your systems design.
Speaker: Sandesh Gawande, CTO, iCEDQ
Recent banking mergers have led to an increase in data pipeline and migration projects. These are challenging and problematic - the reliability of the data is critical. Automating quality assurance with data testing can help.
In this session, Sandesh will take us through the case study of a major data migration project resulting from an investment banking merger in which the automated data testing platform from iCEDQ helped to certify data pipelines and the migration from the legacy platform. He will demonstrate how a legacy system and a new system can be run in parallel during migration, allowing for data reconciliation between them. You will see how a migration project can be accomplished in record time, with minimal resources, and in compliance with regulatory requirements.
• Roya Montazeri, Sr. Director Software Test Automation, Cox Automotive
• Rolando Martinez, Software Engineer, FIS
• Kenny Austin, Chief Customer Officer, Parasoft
To deliver financial services software applications on time and under budget, a well-defined automated testing strategy is crucial for finding and fixing defects early in the development cycle. Cox Automotive and FIS Global will discuss how they utilized service virtualization to reduce defects, increase software quality, and streamline development by minimizing downstream dependencies.
Learn how to measure the ROI of test automation, automate the ability to create and reuse virtual assets, and scale test automation and service virtualization in your organization.
Speaker: Aaron Jensen, Senior Manager Solution Engineering & DevOps Advisor, Delphix

Finally he will share some ways the leading companies are enabling ephemeral data to both reduce costs and reduce the environmental impact of IT operations.
Speaker: Neil Pradhan, Lead UX Designer, Morgan Stanley
How can large financial firms achieve consistent, five-star, customer experience across hundreds or even thousands of applications? There are methodologies for aligning varied development teams and their apps in a common objective, and Neil will draw on his experience working at leading investment banks to demonstrate how to use them. He'll be covering the technique of journey mapping, managing the balance of outcomes and output requirements, design systems, and use of performance metrics to provide evidence of progress. Firms need to establish new ways of collecting information and new ways of thinking about UX, and Neil will help you establish your new agenda.
• Kannan Kuppuswamy, Corporate Vice President, New York Life Insurance
• Shilpa Khurana, Director-Head of QA: Managed Services, KPMG US

They are also responding to the broader challenge of establishing new standards for enterprise IT risk management and digital resilience. Our panelists will cover tooling and platform decisions they are making, with a focus on release orchestration and the development of test centers of excellence (TCoEs) that enable leading insurance companies such as New York Life to facilitate reporting of key data for internal risk management and audit requirements. Separately, we'll also be discussing how the consolidation of your test automation toolkit can facilitate regulatory external reporting requirements as supervisors increase their scrutiny of how leading firms are benchmarking their digital resilience. The aim of this session is to provide you with some fresh ideas on how you can manage your QA and testing technology assets effectively.

Speaker: Sandesh Gawande, CTO, iCEDQ Recent history has taught us that major data migration programs following banking mergers can be hugely challenging and problematic. In this session Sandesh Gawande, will take us through a detailed case study involving a major investment bank which had acquired a brokerage firm. Following the merger, the bank decided to maintain an independent order management system, but merge the trading and settlement systems into a single platform. Sandesh will explain how iCEDQ's automated test creation platform - helped certify the data migration. The need to run both settlement systems in parallel during the migration was one key challenge. A tight timeline was another. And Sandesh will demonstrate how the migration was accomplished in record time, with minimum resources and in compliance with regulatory requirements.
