Speaker Presentation

  • A DevOps Journey: Reducing Friction in the Enterprise

    Mark will discuss the journey currently underway at Wells Fargo to strategically transform software development and testing processes. Challenges covered will include: Mobilizing key subject matter experts and leaders in the effort to articulate and enhance the new vision; the necessity to have clear target state business goals; a holistic approach to enable people, process, and tool changes; and the difficulties encountered in a large organization when implementing change across teams.

  • Reinventing QA in the age of Agile, DevOps, Machine Learning and Big Data

    In recent years, the software development process has been revolutionized. In the age of Agile, DevOps, Machine Learning and Big Data, traditional QA processes must also adapt in order to add value to the Software Development Life Cycle. Modern QA must incorporate advances made in Machine Learning and Big Data Techniques, utilising tools such as Splunk, RPA and Big Data Analytics, with particular emphasis on automation and continuous integration. In this presentation, Sundeep will explore how firms can reinvent QA, to make sure it keeps pace with the overall Software Development Process.

  • From Deming to DevOps, a QA Transformation Journey

    Whilst the financial industry is embracing more agile ways of working, change is not always easy, as firms must integrate complex legacy systems that can slow down and complicate digital transformation. Ian will take you through his experience in the industry and the journey towards DevOps, and the importance of the role QA and Testing have in this transition. He will explain how embracing change is not an option but an imperative and give an insight into what the next 5 years hold.

  • Software Security and Testing: A Holistic Approach to Risk Management in the SDLC

    Under increasing risk of cyber-attacks, as well as ever mounting regulatory scrutiny, firms must ensure that security is embedded throughout the software development life cycle. Brian will detail how BBVA are approaching security testing, whilst considering the industry response to ever more stringent regulatory requirements, such as the NYCRR 500. He will detail how to reduce risk through vendor management, and best practice surrounding the cloud and open-source tools.

  • Quality Assurance, Testing and Governance Stages for Machine learning Algorithms

    Everyone is talking about AI and machine learning - but how will firms test machine learning systems as they increasingly become a reality? Andrew and Imir will discuss techniques for ensuring quality control on algorithms and data structures, and how these can help firms to meet business objectives. They will explain how algorithms can be tested, and how this ensures stability in production.

  • The Nature of Truth and How We Define Fake Testing

    We live in a world of complex and interconnected systems. The software development life cycle goes full steam ahead through agile transformations. Large technology infrastructures seek better ways of assuring quality, scalability and reliability for their platforms. The path is frequently obstructed by the spread of Fake Testing. Many project teams are vulnerable to this new danger. Iosif will share his thoughts on how to deal with the challenge in a post-truth world of eroding trust.
