Digital Evolution with Micro Focus DevOps - Archie Roboostoff, Tal Levi Joseph

Software-based innovation and development continue to grow at a rapid pace to satisfy the expectation of seamless digital services. As software portfolios grow in size, it becomes increasingly difficult to plan, build, test and deliver products at the pace the business demands. Micro Focus Application Delivery is an integrated set of solutions that facilitate automation and collaboration so that organizations can achieve consistent speed and quality in their software delivery. This keynote will focus on key trends from Agile and DevOps and everything in between from Continuous Integration, Testing, and Delivery.

Boosting the coverage and effectiveness of shift-left testing Micro Focus UFT and LoadRunner solutions - Vicky Giavelli, Renato Quedas

By attending this session, you will learn about the need to shift-left, why it’s important, and how to prepare for it. You’ll see how Micro Focus is bringing together UFT and LoadRunner capabilities into an integrated solution that enables Testers and Developers to easily build and maintain functional and performance test automation assets directly within their IDE of choice, making those assets available to run at each stage in the pipeline, and thus giving the team immediate feedback to improve quality and increase their velocity.

How to adapt and thrive in an Omni-channel world - Evgeny Karasik

In a world that requires applications to be delivered on an ever-increasing variety of smartphones, tablets, laptops and wearables all running different operating systems and browsers (aka configurations), test automation tools combined with a clear understanding of your user experience across configurations is the only way to eliminate any possible “bottlenecks” and truly deliver faster more reliable builds. In this session, we will present how to implement an automation approach that can leverage different skills across the QA organization to increase the levels of automation coverage for mobile and web applications.

Increased Automation Productivity and Resilience Using AI - Eran Bachar

Test Automation is considered one of the key aspects to deliver the speed and reliability of any continuous delivery pipeline and yet organizations recognize that in average only 15% of their testing is fully automated. When asked about their major challenges to increasing their automation coverage, the lack of proper skillsets combined with the cost of building and maintaining automation assets are at the top of their priority list. In this session, we will present how Micro Focus is leveraging Artificial Intelligence to deliver major advances in functional testing that will enable testers to easily keep up with the speed of application changes while reducing the cost of building and maintaining automation assets.

Journey to DevOps, touching upon areas where Micro Focus can help customers shine. - Tal Levi Joseph

Digital transformation changes the way people do business and accelerates the delivery of high-quality, innovative solutions that delight customers and outpace competitors. This shift puts greater emphasis on business value over individual releases and connecting and measuring end-to-end activities. During the presentation, you’ll gain insight into application delivery trends, how to align value streams with strategy, and the integrated roadmap across the Micro Focus Lifecycle.

DevOps Test Automation with LeanFT - Graham England

Travelport’s software test automation journey began in 1996.  This automation has developed into a comprehensive framework, capable of testing GUI, API and Terminal Emulation applications across multiple platforms, primarily using Micro Focus tools. In this presentation, you will see the tools and components that make up our automation framework, and how we have used it to confidently step into the SAFe CI/CD world. Attendees will take away the following from this presentation:

Components to be considered for a test automation framework
Why the Micro Focus tools have stood the test of time
Comparing UFT to LeanFT
Dev Tester challenges moving to CI/CD and BDD/TDD

Secrets of Test Automation: Identify Objects on the Fly with the Magic Object Model - Paul Grossman

PAIN POINT: An architectural change switches 50 Link classes to WebButtons in the QTP Object Repository. To make matters worse, each object has multiple code references. The estimated combined code and repository maintenance time required would take about two days but the client expects results in about two hours.

SOLUTION: Taking a chance, we implemented Embedded Class Switching into the framework by overriding the .Click method. Within 90 minutes 97% of the test cases up and running.

Then we asked ”How many of our repository objects could be accurately identified with plain English on-the-fly?” thus starting our journey into the Magic Object Model design pattern.
