Leveraging the cloud for on-demand test services
On demand testing or Testing as a Service (TaaS) offers a pay-per-use method to augment the more traditional QA activities. To enable many of these on demand services requires tools and environment that are charged on a pay-per-use basis, and these are typically available through use of the cloud. In this session we will discuss some of the ways we have changed the cost model and approach to testing to be more responsive and cost effective.
We will cover how large scale performance tests can easily be run from the cloud, as well as the use of SaaS tools for test management, security testing and code quality. We will look at how the cloud can help to manage the multitude of mobile devices that need to be tested.
