STAREAST 2012 Keynote: Testing Trends: Cloud, Virtualization, and Mobility

Theresa Lanowitz, voke, inc.

Almost daily, we see reports of software failures that harm enterprises and impact the brand, putting testing organizations and their efforts in the spotlight. Fortunately, testers are now in one of the most exciting times in the software industry’s history! Theresa Lanowitz describes how you can begin to use new technologies—cloud, virtualization, and mobility—to deliver more value to your company, enhance your career, and act as a change agent for higher quality. As organizations adopt cloud and mobile strategies, testers must be ready to deliver immediate value on these new platforms while test organizations must complement and extend their existing tools to ensure these new platforms meet the demands of the business—especially in the areas of performance and security. Theresa reports on the ways that leading organizations are using the cloud and virtualization to test over more platforms, deliver greater coverage, and find critical defects prior to production. Find out how your team can begin to use—or enhance your use of—these technologies while improving on all corners of the classic “cost, quality, schedule” triangle.
