The Automation Era
Technology has advanced so much that the boundaries between physical world (machines, devices, equipment’s, plants) and digital world has become one. The systems are interconnected and intelligent and are able to support activities across the entire value chain. Automation is the key differentiator in this entire value chain.
From connected to monitored world to ANALYZED, PREDICTABLE and OPTIMIZED world automation is necessary.

Talk: Keynote session on Disciplined Agile Delivery
Workshop on: Robotic Process Automation
In its recent report “Disruptive technologies: Advances that will transform life, business, and the global economy,” McKinsey identifies 12 technologies that will transform the world in the next 5 years. Remote Process Automation (RPA) ranked second, just behind the Internet of Things.
RPA is the application of technology to process transactions, manipulate data, trigger responses and communicate with other digital systems – tasks that when done by humans are prone to error and inefficiency. RPA promises to deliver significant value, but before that value can be realized those technologists, managers and business process outsourcing organizations ultimately charged with implementing RPA for their organizations or customers need to become well-versed in its RPA’s benefits.
This highly practical workshop provides an introduction to Robotic Process Automation using a mixture of group discussion, presentations, practical demonstrations and exercises. From these activities, the participants will learn:
· What RPA is and how it compares with other automation initiatives
· How RPA actually works in practice
· How to undertake an effective business review to establish your readiness for RPA and where it might add value ·
· How to identify what processes to automate.
Aditya has over 19 years of IT experience and he has been a test architect and principal consultant excelling in designing, strategizing and architecting manual and automation testing solutions. His primary focus has been in the area of establishing and leading testing center of excellence and practices, managing large IT projects, undertaking testing process studies using Six Sigma, CMMi and TMM models, proposing QA solutions, performance engineering and architecture reviews, designing automation frameworks, exploring open source test automation tools/frameworks and Business development.
Talk: Big Data – Hadoop and MapReduce – new age tools for aid to testing and QA
BigData with its slew of technologies and terms has been the most talked about area in last couple of years. This has evolved in Big Data Science, Analytics and now on the IoT and automation side. There is a need for testers and QA team to not only get used to this new age digital transformation area but at the same time embrace the technology to their own advantage. We have experimented and successfully used Big Data Technologies – Hadoop and MapReduce for a recent testing engagement. The actual application was implemented using classic technologies like CentOS and C++. Testing team implemented Hadoop and MapReduce to help in quick turnaround for the testing. We would like to showcase the entire case study on how the tools and technologies came in handy for a High Frequency Trading (HFT) application and had we not implemented the same what would we have missed. We would also share the entire CentOS/Hadoop/MapReduce VM with the participants. This would require the attendees to bring their own laptop with at least 4GB RAM (Available) so that they do some hands on exercises that we would like to share.

Talk: Big Data Analytics – Data Visualization
There are a significant amount of challenges in the industry to process and visualize large amount of data. Interestingly, stakeholders still believe a lot on data visualization on real-time basis is quite important to take decisions which are data driven and help decision makers taking important business decisions. Through the session, I will cover the overview of reporting, data visualization, tools and helping participants to take smart decisions. As part of the session, I will demo the automation process using tools, internet technology, web services and database engines to visualize aggregated and meaningful decisions.
Talk: Performance testing in the IoT world
In the day and age when all devices are interconnected with each other there are numerous challenges. We need to be able to identify the various bottlenecks and establish bechmarks for the devices talking to each other. Also, how fast or slow the devices are when they interact with each other. Also, it is seen that there is not enough time for resting or tuning. Also, we need to be able to find out the right set of test data that we would need for the tests. It is also seen as hat typically testers are involved very late in the game but when there are numerous devices talking to each other it’s vital to start early. Through this session we will look at the various challenges in the IoT world with regards to performance testingand how we got around the challenges.

Talk: Bridging the gap between Business and Technology using Behaviour Driven Development (BDD)
“Behaviour” is a more useful word than “test”. BDD has grown to encompass the wider picture of agile analysis and automated acceptance testing. – Dan North, Creator of BDD. Speaker will be sharing his personal experience of how Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) helped to build the right product through genuine collaboration between Business and Technology teams.

Talk: GUIDABLE INCLUSIONS – The crux of mobile testing
A mobile app for every small aspect in our life is the in thing today. Be it talking to your family millions of miles away or simply clicking a picture and letting the whole world know in a matter of few seconds “how good a photographer you are!”, there is an app for everything.Business rely on these apps to build brand value, to spread their wings farther and most importantly, to make their customer’s life easy. While, these apps are a great way for the customers to interact with the businesses, it is extremely annoying to the customers when these apps do not function the way they are supposed to. Testing these apps becomes extremely important before of in most cases even after the customer has started using the app. GUIDABLE INCLUSIONS is not just a mnemonic but a framework which lets you explore your app in the best possible way giving you results which you would have normally missed. It helps you look beyond the UI aspect or as they say the “look and feel” of the app and notice how your apps react in response to the way you interact with them or vice versa.
