Session Description

The way QA is delivered and measured is undergoing a quantum jump - organizations are increasingly looking at testing being delivered as a service, with measurable outcomes. Organizations are exploring alternate delivery mechanisms that enable them to optimize testing and meet business goals - mechanisms that decrease upfront capital investments while maintaining quality. This has resulted in new testing models that are enhanced by Cloud technologies. Delivering testing as a service with outcomes that are in direct correlation with business goals will be the way forward. It denotes a quantum leap for the testing community as they now need to develop a deep understanding of how testing impacts business goals.
