About the event

Testing in Agile and DevQAOps Forum 2018: Over the past several years, a new way of creating software has taken the software development and testing world by storm: Agile.

AGILE methodology is a practice that promotes continuous iteration of development and testing throughout the software development life cycle of the project. Testing in Agile and DevQAOps activities are concurrent unlike the Waterfall model.

In fact, according to VersionOne’s State of Agile Report, as of 2017, 94% of organizations practice Agile in some form. However, respondents report that this adoption is not always widespread within their organizations, which means there’s still a long way to go in terms of adoption and maturity.

So what exactly is Agile and DevQAops forum and why has it become so popular so quickly?

DevOps matters more than ever

Interest in DevOps and IT Ops continues on the upswing, as businesses look for ways to automate, streamline, sharpen, and accelerate their software development and delivery processes. Most CXOs by now understand that it is essential for businesses to be able to create new apps and enhance existing software quickly and continuously in order to satisfy customers’ expectations and compete effectively against rivals. In this race, there’s always a delicate and difficult balance of Quality versus Speed, But it doesn’t have to be a trade-off: Businesses don’t have to decrease quality in order to deliver speed.

Modern application delivery practices — Agile, Lean and DevOps (ALDO) — combined with the continuous automation enable companies to deliver the best experiences to their customers quickly with consistent, repeatable, and scalable processes ensuring both speed and quality
