The 2016 UK LiQE event will provide a dedicated stage for discussing a range of topics across current trends and challenges in the digital assurance and quality engineering space. It will also show how expertly delivered quality assurance solutions can help achieve the combination of delivering robust, high quality software at speeds that maintain competitive advantage.

Why should you attend LiQE 2016?

  1. What direction is the QA/ Testing industry moving in? We will have a key note speech on this topic by Dominique Raviart, who will be discussing current and likely future trends and the challenges they will generate for the quality engineering industry.

Title: Mitigating The Risks of Digital Transformation through Digital Quality Assurance

Abstract: QA and software testing is going through another cycle of disruption as

  • Digital in the Era of Agile and DevOps has led to emergence of different set of challenges in terms of organization and tools
  • Testing centers of excellence are transforming and realigning their skills way from functional testing to specialized testing services and are evolving from knowledge centers to delivery centers
  • Proprietary accelerators and IP are playing a greater role in complementing testing COTS. In parallel, the testing software ecosystem of ISVs such as HPE and IBM is now challenged by smaller ISVs, and open source software, raising questions around existing test script assets and what to do with them.

This key note presentation will address those issues and discuss how those digital challenges can be overcome.
