Increased use of Agile has created new opportunities and presented challenges at the enterprise level. One of the main challenges is keeping up with the demand to meet excellence in the Agile environment. The need for continuous deployment makes it even more challenging for Agile testers to speedily deliver the expected results. As an outcome, the need for innovation and development is increasingly being fueled in the Agile Testing process.
Third in the series of Agile Global Events, the Agile testing conference was successfully organised in Pune on 03 March, 2017. Based on the conference theme Breaking Barriers, Meeting Excellence the conference featured solution based discussions and presentations fostering learning and inspiration for breaking Agile testing barriers.


This conference featured industry experts sharing real time experiences and thought leadership on some of the vital and latest topics in the Agile Testing domain. Their presentation topic and level of industry experience filled a specific gap in the field, making it easier to understand the major Agile testing challenges and knowing how to overcome them.


A full day event aims to bring together bright minds, leaders, practitioners and professional from the Agile management and software testing domain to discuss tools, techniques, developments and best practices in Agile Testing area which will act as catalyst to deliver excellent business value alongside overcoming challenges.

Welcome and opening note
Analytics is changing the way products and services are being created and consumed.In this session, we will learn.
  • What is Analytics?
  • Why is it important to use Analytics in your product?
  • The impact of Analytics not working as expected
We will also see some techniques to test Analytics manually and also automate that validation. But just knowing about Analytics is not sufficient for business now.There are new kids in town - IoT and Big Data - two of the most used and heard-off buzz words in the Software Industry!With IoT, with a creative mindset looking for opportunities and ways to add value, the possibilities are infinite. With each such opportunity, there is a huge volume of data being generated - which if analyzed and used correctly, can feed into creating more opportunities and increased value propositions.

There are 2 types of analysis that one needs to think about.
1. How is the end-user interacting with the product? This will give some level of understanding into how to re-position and focus on the true value add features for the product.
2. With the huge volume of data being generated by the end-user interactions, and the data being captured by all devices in the food-chain of the offering, it is important to identify patterns from what has happened, and find out new product / value opportunities based on usage patterns.
Networking Break

“In the brave new world of Agile and DevOps, traditional testing skills are obsolete and no longer serve the purpose. The Tester mindset needs to be hard wired to wear different thinking hats of an end user, BA, designer, developer and finally Tester. I call them as ‘Quality Engineers’ and not Testers. Often we underplay their role , however time and again the QE fraternity has proved their worth and is rapidly evolving. I perceive this People Transformation has 4 levels of maturity( Beginner , Intermediate , Expert & Guru) and our community is ready to embark on this journey.

Looking forward to seeing you all where I’ll share more details on above. Happy Testing ”

Software build in iterations and progressed in stages usually has 'technical debt' building up. Can we keep an account of this commonly mounting debt? How are evolved QAs to take up this challenge, adn how does this enhance their role?
Panel Discussion - “What’s not changed since switching to Agile Testing – the legacy continues.”

Machine learning is redesigning the way products are built. These are non-deterministic applications requiring newer ways of testing. The outputs are not predictable in a linear way. Results are not binary but in terms of probabilities and confidence levels. Designing quality assurance in such a domain requires newer approaches. The session aims at introducing the audience to the problem domain and the thought process to approach in the testing area.

Increasing complexity of modern technology and modern business have resulted in customers choosing products and services solely based on the quality of the experiences they have with them. An approach known as "Design Thinking" is playing a greater role in achieving this aspect. Design thinking is a human-centric, discovery validation, iterative prototype-testing and out-of-box experimentation that employs various analytical and creative approaches to generate test ideation approaches.

This session starts with the introduction to Design Thinking adopted by Stanford, IDEO and Google and than focuses the spotlight onto testing and culminates with what I hope would lead you to think differently in a non-linear way while performing the role of a Quality Engineer bringing the human aspect to the upcoming artificial intelligence bots era of Information Technology.
