With the rapid pace of getting new product features to market in a digital age, users want their software capabilities and data to follow them wherever they go. From laptops connecting on Wi-Fi to handheld devices connecting on cellular, users expect apps to work seamlessly as they roam from home to car to office. As a veteran QA/Testing consultant, Chris repeatedly sees the following three factors contribute to the inability to swiftly deliver high-quality software that users demand:

  1. Heavy reliance on labor-intensive manual testing
  2. Redundant testing practices
  3. Outdated processes and techniques 

With increased exposure to instant information, from social media to blogs, companies are more vulnerable than ever and simply can’t afford software mistakes. How do Agile teams strike the right balance with testing practices? This presentation will dive into each of the three contributing factors and discuss evolutionary QA and testing practices that can increase efficiencies without sacrificing quality.
