  1. WebinarBecoming More Agile? Here Is How Testing Needs To Change Diego Lo Giudice, Vice President, Principal Analyst May 2, 2013. Call in at 10:55 a.m. Eastern time

  2. Modern applications need Agile development approaches . . . . . . and testing needs to change.

  3. Agenda • Agile disrupts testing as we know it. • TCoE: a concept of the past? • New Agile and existing testing practices remix • The five “must-haves” for Agile testing tools!

  4. Agenda • Agile disrupts testing as we know it. • TCoE: a concept of the past? • New Agile and existing testing practices remix • The five “must-haves” for Agile testing tools!

  5. Why Agile? We still have a huge quality issue . . . Doing “Right Things” vs “Things Right”

  6. Quality is the number one claimed benefit of Agile “What are the perceived benefits in your organization of using Agile?”(Select up to three) Quality Responsiveness to change Speed Base: 205 IT professionals from organizations that are implementing or have implemented Agile (multiple responses accepted); Source: April 30, 2012, “Survey Results: How Agile Is Your Organization?” Forrester report

  7. Traditional testing conflicts with the values of the Agile manifesto Source: January 15, 2013, “Consistent Performance In Agile Teams Must Include Testing” Forrester report

  8. Agenda • Agile disrupts testing as we know it. • TCoE: a concept of the past? • New Agile and existing testing practices remix • The five “must-haves” for Agile testing tools!

  9. Agile teams break the testing center of excellence model!

  10. The TCoE model centralizes all testing activities . . . Performance/integration lab Manual testers Automationscripters Test management: process, people, tools

  11. With Agile, testers sit side-by-side with developers, and most testing activities move to the project teams DevTest teams Exploratory + automation testers, BA, developers Exploratory + automation testers, BA, developers Exploratory + automation testers, BA, developers Exploratory + automation testers, BA, developers Exploratory + automation testers, BA, developers Exploratory + automation testers, BA, developers

  12. The TCoE transforms to testing community of practices Performance/integration lab Testing practices: TDD, BDD, UATD, SBT, exploratory testing . . . Automation architects/designers TestingSMEs

  13. In three to five years . . . TCoE: testing center of excellence TPCoE: testing practice center of excellence Or: community of practice Source: January 15, 2013, “Consistent Performance In Agile Teams Must Include Testing” Forrester report

  14. Agenda • Agile disrupts testing as we know it. • TCoE: a concept of the past? • New Agile and existing testing practices remix • The five “must-haves” for Agile testing tools!

  15. Developers get involved in testing with greater frequency! “How often do you use the following tools when you develop software/applications?” Tech-testing tools Base: 2,038 North American, European, and Asian software developers; Source: Forrsights Developer Survey, Q1 2013

  16. Unit testing is the most common testing practice “Which of the following testing and release management practices does your development team currently use?”(Select all that apply) Unit testing 58% Exploratory testing 20% Performance/load testing 38% Automation/regression testing 30% Continuous integration with multiple weekly builds 32% Base: 698 North American, European, and Asian professional software, internal IT, game developers, and consultants; Source: Forrsights Developer Survey, Q1 2013

  17. Agile brings new practices and extends the existing. Testing done in an accelerated environment needs lean test management. Testing from sprint 0, continuous, incremental, automated all the way through Test automation levels increase. Automation becomes a developer’s job. UATD, TDD, BDD, exploratory testing practices

  18. Testing needs to be done continuously, early, and fast! In large-scale complex environments, some specialized, centralized testing might still persist . . . ! Source: January 15, 2013, “Consistent Performance In Agile Teams Must Include Testing” Forrester report

  19. Higher level of automation needs new practices and tools. Less focus on GUI automation Automation beyond the GUI API automation Services automation Better design and reuse SDLC to develop automation tests A task for developers

  20. Agenda • Agile disrupts testing as we know it. • TCoE: a concept of the past? • New Agile and existing testing practices remix • The five “must-haves” for Agile testing tools!

  22. Agile is also changing the testing tool landscape. The biggies evolving at different paces . . . jUnit xUNIT nUnit.net Selenium Cucumber Fitnesse SpecFlow Creeping in Smaller players. . .Used for Agile testing Stay tuned for the “Testing tools landscape 2013 ” coming out In Q2
