X Topic Abstract

Selenium is an excellent framework as we all know and love for communicating with the browser and Appium with the mobile browsers. While these provide a solid programming interfaces for testers to consume and build tests, the recognition is also that the technology could benefit the non-programmer testers who could benefit from automation more than manual testing. This presentation aims to discuss an implementation of visual tests based on natural language scripting that can be executed using these frameworks either as single tests or while introducing parallelism across browsers and devices. We will see how to improve automatic maintenance of tests hence saving a testers precious time.

X Topic Abstract

The day the first line of code was written was also the day when the programmer had to start worrying about defects in the code.
As Information technology has matured , we see plethora of smart tools and newer and smarter processes.Infact with more and more complex applications and the need to maintain legacy assets has spawned an entire stream of professional called Software Testers. Armed with high end weaponry called "Test Automation Tools" and indoctrinated by Scrum and Lean, they are all over the places looking for defects.
However, it has not meant the demise of software defects. The fundamental question still remains unanswered. How can we build a software as reliable as a Motor Car?
There is clearly a big gap between whats being promised and whats being delivered on the ground.
As IT Companies continue to invest in Software testing, its worth going back to the drawing board to Team work, trust, ability to understand the customer and using simple approaches to solve complext problems. Its important to understand that the best tools are only a set of slaves in the hands of the master but does the master understand how to use them?
"The Digital Divide in Test Automation" attempts to revisit the journey of software testing and learn from experiences on what to unlearn, reset and redidedicate the focus of the software tester to the everlasting journey of finding defects.

X Topic Abstract

In contemporary test automation world, we are running 1000's tests every day. Even though most of our test cases are reliable and stable, debugging failures will consume lot of time, if not handled appropriately. This is an effort to reduce the analysis of failures and come up with probable root cause for each and every failure.
In this talk, we will explore all the approaches we have taken to drastically reduce the time to debug the failures & let you concentrate more on adding new tests. We will also talk about the approaches which could not yield results for us initially & why. We will look into building a failures' dashboard, driven by pattern based classification of logs(both server & automation tool) with reporting.

Speaker Profile

Thought leader in technology solutions including Banking, Telecom & Mobile domains with 23 years of industry experience with products developments.


X Topic Abstract

A lot of times, as testers, we are guilty of being an ostrich focussed on the automation task at hand without visualizing the breadth of the need for testing. Test automation is not only for either the UI, API, Server, Security but across all the faculties. It is also not just the orchestration of these faculties of testing in a DevOps pipeline. It’s also not only the coverage of platforms and environment, maintenance of test cases, ability to transform from one faculty of testing to another, ability to mix the various types of test cases to create interesting real-user scenarios, etc. It’s none of each by themselves but a combination of all of them. And that’s the modern ask of test automation strategy.

X Topic Abstract

This session is to talk about the demand, expectations on the test automation and the gaps of the same in the Testing Industry. And further, this will give insights into the test automation adoption metrics and talks how it will bridge the gap in the coming years.


X Topic Abstract

Today the customer expectations are changing regarding quality of software and the turn around time to address any change request or a pending road map feature without impacting the previously acceptable quality attributes. This throws challenges like how can we automate maximum test cases in same sprint/cycle? How can we automate using existing team irrespective of their scripting knowledge?
Another challenge is multi-environment where product is deployed at different stage during creation with less time to test and move to next stage. With product configuration options throwing another challenge on test coverage. The talk followed by demo of SimplifyQA platform shows how these are addressed to encourage audience to share what are the other challenges they are facing not addressed by this platform and do they see solution to some of the challenges discussed by speaker addressed here in this platform?

X Topic Abstract

Most web applications not only serve the functional aspect but as well ensure that they have rich UX interface comprising of themes, images and stylesheets. The functional aspect can be checked easily with functional automation however it is also required to ensure that the alignment, colors, look and feel are as well accurate and as expected. The problem become multi-fold when the same vanilla web application is customized heavily for different enterprise customers. Manually testing these are time consuming and not accurate. Direct screenshot comparison will as well fail drastically as each time there are some sections of the web page which are bound to change and need to be ignored intelligently prior to comparison. Here we are going to see how we can incorporate all of these in an intelligent image comparison based test automation framework which works on top of Selenium.

Conference Day 3 - Schedule

Digital QA Day (2nd February), Bangalore
X Topic Abstract

The world is being transformed by new technologies, which are redefining customer expectations, enabling businesses to meet these new expectations, and changing the way people live and work. Digital transformation, as this is commonly called, has immense potential to change consumer lives, create value for business and unlock broader societal benefits.
The World Economic Forum launched the Digital Transformation Initiative in 2015, in collaboration with Accenture, to serve as the focal point for new opportunities and themes arising from the latest developments in the digitalization of business and society. It supports the Forum’s broader activity around the theme of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Since its inception, the Initiative has analysed the impact of digital transformation across 12 industries and 130 initiatives which throws a immense challenge and opportunities to Digital Assurance teams.
Every industry has its nuances and contextual differences, but they all share certain inhibitors to change. These include the innovator’s dilemma (the fear of cannibalizing existing revenue models), low technology adoption rates across organizations, conservative organizational cultures, and regulatory issues. Business and government leaders should continue to work towards addressing these challenges.
A notable outcome of this work is the development of distinctive economic framework, which quantifies the impact of digitalization on industry and society. It can be applied consistently at all levels of business and government to help unlock the estimated $100 trillion of value that digitalization could create over the next decade.
Digital assurance is confined not only to testing applications across the Social, Mobile, Analytics; Cloud (SMAC), BigData, Internet of Things (IoT), etc. but there is also a need to assure that the desired business outcome is achieved as a result of the digital transformation initiatives adopted..
The author will attempt to discuss the 130 initiatives across twelve industries as recommended by W orld Economic forum and related to the World Quality Report presented by CapGemini/Sogeti/Microfocus recently and propose DDX ( Driving Digital Transformation ) Kit to the audience.

X Topic Abstract

Software Testing involves several manual, repeated activities that has to be performed every time there is a feature / product release. This not only involves testing the new feature but also testing to ensure no existing feature is broken (Regression). In this session, we will present the blueprint of our platform agnostic automated test framework – SPIDER. SPIDER is a self-learning / self-healing intelligent automation suite that knows what and when to test based on analytic inputs from system / application logs. We will discuss how similar platforms can be build leveraging AI/ Machine Learning algorithms. The end result could be an intelligent Machine Learning based Test BOT that can replace human testers (when it comes to repetitive, manual testing). This will accelerate test cycles and facilitate a speedy movement of the code through the CI/CD pipeline for instance.

X Topic Abstract

Today the importance of a robust digital presence on a competitive platform is much stressed upon across all industrial sectors, which ultimately requires an equally strong and resilient systems security and data integrity. This requires a certain level of quality assurance and engineering in order to enhance our service offerings and elevate our product quality.

● THE SHIFT TO QUALITY ENGINEERING FROM QUALITY ASSURANCE – with a rapidly transforming world, quality assurance is being shifted out in favor of a quicker and more effective testing and digital process that can be introduced much before the customer’s acceptance. The requirement to deliver a promising user experience is directing us to choose software performance engineering over quality assurance, the application of which across different platforms, operating systems and mobile devices needs to be released before testing and not after.

● DEVOPS - A lot has transpired in the realm of digital performance, in terms of improved standards of quality by virtue of proficient business practices, functions and structural designing.
