Join Inspired Testing for an in-depth exploration of their lessons learned in the journey towards a ‘Quality engineering without frontiers’ delivery model, tearing down the typical limitations imposed by the unprecedented pressures of a post 2020, modern, interconnected world.


The session will touch on contextual behavioural changes observed in testing engagements and organisations, and how they have affected and altered remote working in geographically distributed environments, communication patterns & general transparency across business units and functional streams, data security & privacy, as well as the way that operational and cost efficiencies are driven to realisation.


The track will end on the topic of market trends, scrutinising traditional vs. modern approaches, past and future testing models for manual, automation & performance within the context and advent of DevOps, Pay Per Use managed services, while adopting and innovating with open source technologies.
