Unleashing true potential of AI and Smart Automation in the world of Testing


Change is the only constant thing in this world, and more so when it comes to Technology!

The Technology advancements, Business complexity, and Industry trends have been disrupting the QA/Software testing processes and at the same time, paving way for the new era for this domain. How this new era is shaping in the industry will be discussed in this Conference with the themes viz:

(2) Smart Automation: Test automation is no longer limited to functional/UI automation and newer approaches to automation are driving increased efficiencies in the overall software process. Aligning automation to DevOps model has also evolved in recent times.
