Why is Everyone Talking About the Future of Testing?

Presented by: 

Over the past two years, the vast majority of industry experts have felt compelled to provide their perspective on “the future of testing.” This is unprecedented. Something must have fundamentally changed to generate so much buzz…what is it?

Although some claim that these fundamental industry shifts spell the death of “testing,” we believe they open an opportunity to elevate the role of the tester. This session explores the perfect storm currently disrupting testing, how it is already impacting testers across the industry, and how the role of testing and testers can evolve from a providing “hygiene” service to a becoming business-critical protector of the user experience. We’ll cover what changes are needed to drive this transformation—from IT leaders as well as within the QA organization.
