Strategy for Continuous Testing in iDevOps

Continuous testing is the key for DevOps. But what is the right strategy, especially in industrial domains (“industrial DevOps” – “iDevOps”) that face many additional challenges compared to the ideal world of pure IT systems? “Si vous ne savez pas” (if you don’t know) than you should attend this talk!

It describes the building blocks of a strategy for continuous testing in industrial DevOps projects (iDevOps) and shares our motivations, achievements, and experiences on our journey to transform testing into the iDevOps world. Especially the mindset and culture is important for any DevOps transformation. But just arguing that “we need motivated people with the right skill set” is not enough; therefore many concrete examples of potential conflicts, misalignment, and new priorities that require a cultural change and different behavior for iDevOps are discussed and explained (“mindset by example”).

Agenda:- What & Why?   – Continuous testing defined   – Specifics of industrial-grade DevOps (iDevOps)   – Testing areas – What’s new and different in continuous testing?- How?   – Prerequisites and preconditions for continuous testing   – Mindset by example   – Enablers for continuous testing   – Practices, recommendations, and experiences Attend this presentation and do not only learn what industrial DevOps (iDevOps) is all about and why we at Siemens are driving this forward but “savez comment” (know about how) to use the strategies, tactics, and practices in your projects as a major lever for better testing. We are continuing our journey in this direction – that means a tremendous upgrade and empowerment of testing!
