Transform your testing: on-demand webinar

In this webinar, Mastek's Ravi Salunkhe and Percy Hilloo explore the testing challenges faced in today's IT organisations and a range of opportunities to improve the quality and time/cost efficiency of your testing.

Many organisations still struggle with the challenges inherent in a predominantly manual approach to testing, including delayed time to market, high overall costs, delayed revenue and a negative impact on brand value due to defective products and services.

There is wide recognition of the emerging need for organisations to shift towards continuous quality and continuous delivery through test automation. The benefits to organisations are compelling, including improved time to market, substantial cost savings and a higher quality of output.

Ravi explains how Mastek supports organisations to exploit these new opportunities in testing and illustrates this through our work with Specsavers, an engagement which won a 2018 European Software Testing Award in the category of Function Automation.

Help testing teams work smarter: on-demand webinar

In this webinar, Mastek’s Senior Test Manager Andrew Palmer shares his insights on emerging trends and new technologies that are making software testing more effective, in both Agile and Waterfall contexts. In addition, he explores how Test Managers, IT leaders and CIOs can better engage their testing specialists and help them to be more productive.

He explains that testers don’t like to talk about quality. Instead, they prefer to talk about value. By value, they mean efficiency (i.e. that a product has no defects), agility (i.e. that it can it be easily fixed or upgraded) and predictability (i.e. that you will get the value you are expecting).

He encourages organisations to view testers as critical friends within the team, as the user’s representative. They can then provide feedback and advise on how the product can be improved.

Andrew also explains the role of test automation – an area in which Mastek has award-winning expertise – and how it massively reduce costs and accelerates testing in support of Continuous Delivery.

RPA – How to tame the bot: on-demand

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can be a highly attractive proposition for many organisations. By getting bots to do the repetitive manual tasks of humans, work can be done at a fraction of the cost, in a fraction of the time.

However, when it comes to implementing RPA, it’s important that bots are set up in such a way that they yield the greatest possible benefit but are still under your control. 

In this on-demand webinar, Mastek's Senior Technical Architect Keith Morley explains how you can achieve this.

He summarises Mastek’s 10-step RPA implementation guide which recommends an incremental and iterative approach, enabling you to de-risk RPA deployment. Keith covers:

  • Stakeholder engagement and collaborative planning
  • Bot selection and optimisation
  • Team enablement and infrastructure preparation
  • Design, build and testing of your bots
  • Piloting, deployment and maintenance
