Overview of the event

DevOps is much more than just local improvement in the development, delivery and operation of software: it represents a movement that touches development and operations (obviously!), but organizational culture, quality assurance, security, and program management.

Automation, Agile processes, micro services, continuous delivery, container and cloud technologies are essential to the current high performance IT transformation.

Agile Testing and Test Automation will help you get industry best practices in Agile Testing & Test Automation and the latest tools and techniques to achieve it.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Machine Learning and AI provide immense opportunity in Data and Process Analytics for optimum outcomes.

Join us at DevOps, Agile Testing Test Automation and RPA Summit in September to hear from subject matter experts currently evaluating RPA for their businesses in areas such as Finance, Procurement, HR, Outsourcing, Automation, etc.

X Topic Abstract

In this keynote, Paul will introduce the concept of Augmentative Process Automation as the next phase of evolution for RPA, offering a refreshing view-point on why RPA projects can fail and distinguishing between Hype and Reality. He will speak to the organisation as an immune system that views technology adoption as a threat, the types of innovation that have the highest propensity for success in incumbent organisations and how to budget for them before bringing it together with some actionable steps as you evaluate your automation investments of the future.

X Topic Abstract

In this talk, you will hear about the DevOps journey in our company, from the initial brown-field all-manual state toward the strategic destination of a fully automated and monitored process.
We hired new people, changed the processes, implementing automation, but the way is long and full of perils. We are not a startup, the luxury of green field: we have a big .Net application at the core and many other applications using different technologies and platforms. Some application stacks are hard to update, automation scripts fail to work on older software, infrastructure designed piecemeal, multiple host providers and more.
How are we trying to cope with this complexity? What is causing us most problems: technologies, design or people?
In equilibrium between an high-level view and useful practical tips, we will touch on what informed our decisions, in terms of priorities and technologies, some lessons learned in setting up Infrastructure-as-Code using Terraform for Azure, and how the legacy constraints helped or hindered.

X Topic Abstract

The Fourth Industrial revolution (industry 4.0) signifying the era of automation is fast approaching. Manufacturing, agriculture, transport and many more sectors are already being transformed by recent advances in automation technology. It is predicted that by 2025 more than 25 billion smart objects would be integrated into our homes and workplaces. At the same time, advanced Artificial Intelligence (A.I) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms need to be developed to make sense of the data gathered from these smart objects. Undoubtedly, we live in the age of disruptive innovation, where the generation of bright ideas is flourishing. However, amidst all the excitement, there is a sense of uncertainty on how best to protect the underline Intellectual Property (IP) to gain a competitive advantage in the era of automation. More specifically, there is much confusion surrounding the IP protection of software-based innovations, which forms an integral part of the industry 4.0 ecosystem. In this presentation, we will explain the current IP protection framework for software-based innovations, which will include a discussion on handling Trade Secrets, offer guidance on the development of a strong IP portfolio, and provide advice on how to leverage the IP generated to help your business succeed.

X Topic Abstract

DevOps has been traditionally used to deploy large projects but with more operational support to meet deadlines, However RPA in the DevOps world allows for an opportunity to provide a better strategy of code releases and become more agile to the businesses needs by supplying pre-set functions that just need to know the inputs and outputs before a release / test.
The benefits of a Robot are achieved by articulating the expected input / outputs into consistent reusable release bots which can act as the testing structure, the release structure and so on. This allows for ops to handle the rollout within operations rather than the administrative deployment cycle and thus provides a reduction in the time to release.
