101 :  Create Your Roadmap to Data-Driven Quality
Tuesday, 10:30am - 11:45am
Track: Test Strategy, Process and Design
Bing analyzes Petabytes of data per day. Facebook instruments everything. Outlook.com analyzes web performance for millions of real users. Why? Because testing is measurement, and measurement requires data.
Testers have traditionally relied on test results, but additional data sources now available to the tester and the ability to process these are expanding like never before. Data-Driven Quality (DDQ) strategies such as Testing in Production (TiP) are essential tools for most testers, but the question is how do you implement these strategies to benefit your specific product? If you are seeking this answer, Seth will show you how to move forward. The data you will need can be big or small, real-time or delayed, synthetic or organic. So it is critical that you know what data you need and understand how much is required. With this presentation, you will become equipped with the tools and knowledge necessary to get insights from this data about your product quality. Seth will take you through the critical thinking and framing to understand how data-driven quality can benefit your product and team. He will then enable you to create a roadmap for how you can implement your data-driven quality strategy and take your testing to the next level.
Session Takeaways:
  • See the power of DDQ to provide business value.
  • Apply the DDQ lifecycle of Questions, Data, and Insights to create an Action Plan.
  • Learn the model of how to understand system health using data.
  • Understand how to architect a data platform.
  • This session is for quality team leaders, thought leaders, and individuals who want to educate their leadership on DDQ.
