Testing and DevOps: The Future is Now

Speaker: Adam Auerbach, VP, Co-Head of Cloud and DevTestSecOps Practice at EPAM Systems

The DevOps movement is here. Companies across all industries are breaking down siloed IT departments and federating them into product teams. Testing and its practices are at the heart of these changes. Traditionally, IT organizations have been staffed with mostly manual testers and a limited number of automation and performance engineers. To keep pace with development in the new "you build it, you own it" environment, testing teams and individuals must develop new technical skills to stay relevant and add greater value to the business.

Join Adam Auerbach as he explains what DevOps is and how it relates to testing. Adam will discuss how DevOps really starts with Testing. He will describe how testing must change from top to bottom and how to assess your own environment to identify improvement opportunities. Adam dives into practices like service virtualization, test data management, and continuous testing so you can understand where you are now and identify steps needed to instill a DevOps testing culture in your team and organization.
