Delivering quality software with drastically reduced product development times has never been as challenging as it is today. This puts tremendous pressure on development and test teams. Traditionally, IT teams mitigate by compromising on non-functional quality aspects during their first few releases. This approach, though not ideal, still allows IT teams to operate with minimal risks. However, with the rise of disruptive technologies via SOA principles and the adoption of digital technologies in the systems of engagement, quality issues today get amplified in social media, resulting in loss of brand credibility and trust. For early risk mitigation, IT teams need pragmatic processes, tools and techniques to support them in delivering higher quality software. The webinar helps IT teams to increase awareness to the context, understand challenges faced during the journey as well as learn proven solutions.
Rajesh Sarangapani leads the Technology CoE at Gallop and has been instrumental over the last 17 years in helping clients implement processes that help them build application performance by design rather than as an afterthought. He holds a couple of patents in his name in the testing space.
Michael Giller is Sales Engineer Team Leader for SmartBear. He specializes in all things API and SoapUI related, focusing his writing on ranting about quality in the software development process and how different types of people involved in software development can coexist.
