Speaker Presentation

  • The Bank of England’s journey to Agile – Balancing innovation and agile delivery with quality

    The Bank of England is taking a big step towards Agile delivery of software and is investigating its technology options. But while Agile delivery is taking increasing hold on how firms deliver new systems and systems changes, Agile methods appear to be antithetical with the level of quality that the Bank of England’s business areas are used to, and still demand. Jordan Daniel will explain the steps the Bank is taking to reconcile possibly contradictory positions.

  • Key technologies in test automation for continuous delivery and continuous integration

    Most financial firms have targets for increasing rates of test automation. But many are only at the start of that transformation, and even among the leaders there is no agreed best practice or the toolset. Our panel will discuss the relationship between automation, DevOps and Agile and the business case for technologies such as test service virtualisation and the potential that lies in AI, machine learning and robotic process automation.

  • Value stream management at Goldman Sachs – Quality assurance through engineering

    Matt Davey will explain why it is imperative that firms optimise their delivery pipelines with quality assurance best practice that ensures effective value stream management. He will explain the methodology for value stream management at Goldman Sachs, and how quality can be ensured through Agile, automation, tooling and enhanced metrics in order to fully understand how different features deliver value to the customer and the firm.

  • Lloyds Bank’s move to integrate DevOps and Agile – Quality assurance at scale

    Among BFIS firms, Lloyds has managed one the world’s largest and most advanced digital transition programmes. But while DevOps and Agile are widely recognised as keys to better quality assurance and testing, one size does not fit all. During this session Allan Woodcock will explain how other firms can scale Agile methodologies to different programmes, and how Agile can enhance technical test frameworks to ensure quality execution. Additionally, by examining Lloyd’s approach to DevOps, delegates will gain a better understanding of what effective and robust working practices.

  • QA Vector Research: Three Keys to Adding Value in QA

    QA Vector Research has identified three key areas of focus to maximise the value added by QA. These are: identifying and prioritising critical processes for testing efforts; where and how to exploit AI; and how effectively to benchmark the quality journey. This presentation, drawing on recent work in partnership with Exactpro Systems, will explore these issues.

  • Crowd testing for mobile banking at Credit Suisse – Best practices

    Crowd testing might seem like an old-fashioned alternative to the cloud. But Credit Suisse has found it highly effective for testing its core applications in mobile banking, having adopted the methodology in 2016. Ivo Meier will cover the general principles of crowd-sourcing principles, and discuss the benefits for functional and for security testing.

  • End-to-End Regression Library for a Cloud-Based Post Trade and Risk Management System

    Alexey Zverev will describe the main differentiating features of a new cloud-based post trade and risk management system developed by Exactpro's client. He will explain the approach taken by Exactpro in building a Test Harness and an Automated E2E Regression library to test the complex system and the value this work brings to the client's development team helping them deliver it.

  • How ABN AMRO measures the quality of the software development lifecycle

    ABN AMRO is shifting from an Agile and CI/CD model towards a DevOps model, in order to enable its scrum teams to move faster and with a high level of autonomy. Ingmar Vis will explain how the bank has re-organised and re-tooled its scrum teams, and how it tackled the challenges of the new strategy. The end result at ABN AMRO is a holistic overview of the SDLC that Ingmar can share, along with the lessons learned by the bank on its journey.

  • Saxo Bank’s realistic QA revolution

    While most people know that promoting ‘change’ is difficult and revolutions within engineering are bloody - architects, change agents and QA professionals are constantly being tasked with reshuffling the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) in their organisations. Achieving those objectives within engineering are extremely difficult, especially in organisations where the business commitments aren’t prepared to create an environment better prepared for a lot of change. Inspired by thought-leaders within the ‘behavioural design’ space, Hassan will present how he is fighting for a “Realistic QA Revolution at Saxo Bank” covering topics such as social engineering, constraints, context-driven QA activities, checklists and risk management.
