Five Digital Age Trends That Will Dramatically Impact Testing And Quality Skills
Enterprises globally are in the midst of a major digital revolution. In fact, as per the Accenture Digital Economic Value Index almost 25% of the world’s economy will be digital by 2020. Winners in the digital age will need to enable their people—employees, customers and ecosystem partners—to accomplish more with technology. They will need to shift focus from merely consuming emerging technologies to equipping people to continuously learn and adapt, create new solutions, drive relentless change and disrupt the status quo with new business strategies that those technologies drive.
This webinar will examine the key technology trends behind a ‘people-first’ approach and analyze those from a testing perspective. According to the Accenture Technology Vision 2016, the five trends that will dramatically disrupt large enterprises in the next three to five years include: Intelligent Automation, Liquid Workforce, Platform Economy, Predictable Disruption and Digital Trust.
In their presentation, Matthias and Shoeb will uncover the impact and opportunities these trends present for testing and quality engineering skills. Participants will learn how to achieve success by developing a comprehensive digital testing strategy to drive higher test frequency, greater coverage and quality and a business process-centric approach with intelligent automation.
