WHAT: Live Webinar: “Leveraging Automated Software Quality to Optimize Applications and Business,” Hosted by SmartBear with IDC 

WHEN: Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. EDT 


The need for software quality has never been more vital as organizations race to deliver new online services, mobile apps, and virtual experiences to gain advantage in the digital economy. Customer engagement and retention have become intrinsically tied to the quality of an organization’s software, to the point where application failure can dramatically erode competitive execution and market share.  

The new IDC MarketScape, where SmartBear was named a Leader, examines the global landscape for automated software quality, market trends and business drivers, challenges organizations are facing to dynamically scale application delivery, and the tools they are using to help ensure quality. 

The webinar explores how shifting left approaches are pulling quality earlier into development to enhance relevance, responsiveness, time, and expense as well as how AI and smart analytics are shaping the future of testing through automation, self-healing, and autonomous testing. The panel will also talk about establishing effective continuous testing and quality strategies that encompass new and evolving development approaches like cloud-native and no-code/low-code.
