Integrated End-to-End Testing across a SAFe Environment in a Regulated Industry

Add to calendar

Have you ever been in a situation that is new, with little historical reference or maturity, and oh, by the way, involves testing in a highly regulated industry? End-to-End Testing, whether automated and/or manual testing, can be a challenge no matter what industry you are in. With no magic formula to follow and no lessons learned, what data elements, resources and options can you leverage to get started? Join Anne as she shares the story of a two year journey in figuring out the integrated End-to-End Test approach, in a SAFe Environment, for a new life insurance and annuity platform implemented at State Farm. You'll find out how the hints, tips, best practices and resources from this session can help your organization.
