Automate across Platform, OS, Technologies with TaaS

schedule Mar 1st 03:30 PM - Jan 1st 12:00 AM place Esquire

"TaaS" is an open-source product that allows you do achieve the "correct" way of doing integration testing across a variety of products via Test Automation.

Typically in organizations, there are multiple projects / products. Many organizations like to have a common Test Automation solution across these products in an effort to standardize the framework.

However, this is not a good idea! Each product should be tested using the tools and technologies that are "right" for it. Yet - these different products talk with each other and you need to test the integration between them in an automated way.

    Anand,

    We think this proposal will be better suited for Beyond Agile theme, if you agree can you move the proposal to Beyond Agile.

    Can you also do this as a demonstration for 45 minutes instead of 90 minutes.

     

    Cheers

      Hi Pramod,

      I have moved this to Beyond Agile theme.

      Regarding the duration - I can reduce this to a 45 min - but that will loose a lot of value in terms of explaining the concept, the technical aspects of the usage, and the demo. If you still feel 45 min is better suited for this, I will update it accordingly.

      Kindly advise.

      Regards,

      Anand

        Thanks Anand. Currently we don't have a 90 mins slot. We only have a 45 mins slot. Request you to update your proposal to 45 mins and adjust your process section accrodingly.

        Also, personally I believe, a good speaker can distill down a complex idea to be explained in simple terms in max. 30 mins. At least this is what I strive to do. And I would encourage you to try the same.

          Done. I have changed this to 45 min. I will keep the same structure, but optimize it to fit in the time slot.

    Sounds an elaborate testing framework. Could you elaborate on how this will help organizations in "scaling agile" or do you want to consider this for "Agile Lifecycle" stage instead?

      Hi Archana,

      I like the suggestion of maybe changing this to Agile Lifecycle. I put this initially under sacling agile, since TaaS really helps build a good integrated automation suite, across your product portfolio. I will see if I can change this to Agile Lifecycle instead though.

       

      Thanks.

    Hi Anand 

    Looks like a good product for integration testing. However, I could not really understand the significance of this in an Agile conference such as this. Could you please elaborate as to how an agile practitioner or wannabe practitioner attending this conference benefit from this?

     

    Thanks

    Vivek.

      Hi Vivek,

      Automation plays a huge role in the success of Agile projects - in order to keep working in the iterative way, and ensuring you are not intriducing regressions in your product. That said, to automate in the iteration, you need to choose the right type of tools, instead of going with huge, monolithic tools which will hamper productivity. This is where TaaS fits in.

    Agile is actually an approach and a Mindset, whereas most people misunderstand it as a set off practices. There are umpteen examples of people implementing the Agile practices and artefacts, but are failing to get the intended positive results. This is a classic problem of ‘doing Agile’ as opposed to aiming to ‘be Agile’. The key to getting the optimal benefits is having the Agile Mindset.

    Mindset is abstract and hence one needs to understand it based on what is visible in behaviours, policies etc. The talk is about not only what these visible characteristics are, but also about what can be some of the enablers to move towards achieving the Agile Mindset. It has been proven that Leadership of an organization plays a key role in enabling the right Mindset, and hence this talk is meant for Leaders.
