19:00 Case study: How ICAP simplified UI automation with user-centric tooling
Presented by Adrian Brown, Head of Fusion QA, ICAP
When you have a rich development toolset available to enable large and complex HTML delivery we then have start to think differently about making automation testing fit in sensibly.
By putting time into building a portable toolset that brought together an experience for QA and Development to work together we achieved a simple native setup to write and run tests. Progressing to an experience where the same tooling runs application tests in CI on cloud services like SauceLabs or BrowserStack.
Once teams start to believe in automation more, buy-in is greater and we rely on them as something that is valuable and empowering. Make it easy and attractive as a strategy…
Adrian Brown has worked in the QA space from small firms to large financial enterprises. Recent challenges have focused on how to change the enterprise approach with Selenium testing for complex HTML applications, introducing Cloud vendors to previously closed institutions and making automation testing a valuable asset to delivery.
19:50 Roundtable discussion: Defining a test strategy for MiFID 2
With MiFID 2 scheduled to launch on 3rd January 2018, there are wide implications on both the operational and technical workings of financial institutions. For many companies, this can lead to a fundamental re-think of how they collect and store data, with centralised 'data lakes' based on NoSQL technology becoming more prominent.
Companies operating in the Capital Markets sector typically work across a wide-ranging product base, so MiFID 2 presents real challenges in terms of the scale needed for test development and execution. In this roundtable discussion we will be focussing on how can a cost- and resource-effective strategy can be defined to fulfil the requirements of MiFID 2.
