Jonathon Wright, Chief Technology Evangelist CA: Cognitive Adaptive Testing: Driving ‘Shift Right’ based on analytics-driven Digital Experiences (DX)
Continuous Adaptive Testing means harnessing the power of analytics and autonomics for continuous delivery. We all know digital technologies are rapidly transforming businesses. This is driven by trends towards omni-channel content delivery, utilization of big data and an improved customer experience. Digital business systems need to be extremely responsive to fickle customer sentiment, work across a variety of devices, be resilient in the face of unpredictable failure modes, and process huge amounts of unstructured data. Such scenarios put extreme pressure on IT systems and processes to be not only more responsive, but adaptive to meet digital business needs.
While automation solutions within current testing implementations help to address agility need, such automation is typically driven by static rules using conventional scripting and orchestration techniques. Such techniques incur high maintenance overhead to keep updated relative to changing circumstances. The recent emergence of predictive analytics and cognitive technologies (such as autonomics) have opened the possibility to drive adaptive automation within testing implementations. Such automation is able to self-heal and self-configure based on changing situations. In this session, Jonathon will present how analytics and autonomics technologies can be leveraged to power the next generation of continuous adaptive testing implementations, and how they can support the needs of digital businesses. He will share:
How you can automate the automation to eliminate error-prone tasks
Leverage the power of machine learning to self-heal automation through diagnosis analysis
Introduce big data analytics across the delivery pipeline to close feedback loops and provide actionable insight-driven analytics
Demonstrate how to enable these capabilities within you own organisation
