Orchestrating Your Testing Process — Coordinating Your Manual and Automated Testing Efforts
Most testing and development organizations approach their manual and automated testing efforts independently. What’s more, when you look closer at them, you notice that even within their automation efforts they are using a number of different testing frameworks, running independently and without much thought around coordination, coverage overlaps, or functional dependencies.
This needs to change! We’re wasting efforts and confusing our stakeholders (& even ourselves) with these dispersed and sometimes seemingly contradictory results. We need an approach to coordinate the planning, designing, execution, and reporting of our complete testing process, to achieve better visibility and make more accurate decisions faster.
This can be achieved by implementing the Test Orchestration Methodology. Where each part of the testing process “plays” independently based on its needs and tools, and when grouping them all together, you get a more complete and valuable set of results for your organization, based on the coordinated synergies of the different parts.
During the session, we will review how to implement and adapt the Orchestration approach to your organization and your process.
We will do this by:
— Understanding some of the common issues faced by teams with dispersed automation efforts
— Reviewing the principles of the Orchestration approach
— Learning a step-by-step guide to implement the process, based on some real-life examples.
— Getting ideas on how to get started with your team, as soon as possible.
