Testing and Test Automation Conference - SmartBear Software Presents

Learn About Automated Testing Tools and Web Service Performance and Security at Verify/ATI 2011 Conference
Beverly, MA — September 19, 2011 —

SmartBear Software announced today that Vice President of Technology, Ole Lensmar, and Senior Test Automation Consultant, Nick Olivo, will present at the Verify ATI 2011 Conference, being held Sept. 26-28, 2011 in Arlington, Va.

On Tuesday, Sept. 27, from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m., Olivo will present “Getting it Right the First Time: How to Evaluate a Test Automation Tool.” Part of the Automated Tools and Implementation track, this session will provide a set of guidelines that testers and test managers can use to perform a thorough evaluation of automated testing software. Olivo will describe some of the common pitfalls that evaluators fall prey to, offer guidance on how to avoid them, and discuss considerations that should be made while evaluating both commercial and open source tools.

Later that day, from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Lensmar will deliver “Automated Security Testing with SoapUI and Hudson.” This session, as part of the Performance and Security track, will teach attendees how to test applications for threats like SQL Injections, XML Bombs and Cross-Site Scripting and will provide a thorough understanding of functional security testing—what it is, how it works, and how it can be automated using popular free tools to detect whether systems are vulnerable to common attacks as they grow.

In addition, SmartBear Software will be exhibiting at Table 7 and giving attendees a firsthand look at soapUI, TestComplete and LoadComplete, three components of the SmartBear Quality Anywhere PlatformTM. This platform, which includes development, QA, application lifecycle management (ALM) and web performance monitoring tools, is designed to help organizations drive quality throughout the entire quality lifecycle, on any platform – the desktop, mobile and in the cloud.

Organized by Verify and the Automated Testing Institute, the testing and test automation conference gives software test engineers, software test automators, application developers, project managers, product managers, business analysts and security engineers the opportunity to learn strategies, techniques and best practices from peers and field leaders.
