Continuous Testing @ Scale: Defining the Blueprint for the Future of Testing

The world of work is changing. Artificial intelligence, automation, and robotics will make this shift a significant one. Many new jobs others created, and almost all will change. The definition of the new path needs a deep exploration of trends, insights, and new approaches.

As we look ahead, the question is – “How do enterprises transform the testing function for efficiency, Agility and Innovation to meet the needs of fast-paced initiatives?”

Built on the theme of Continuous Testing @ Scale this year, the conference will display ideas, experiments, and experiences to explore challenges and suggest techniques and innovations to overcome common problems.

STC 2021 brings together practitioners, thinkers, and thought leaders to present tools and techniques to help you understand your environment better, organize your thoughts, create transformation enablers, and ultimately prepare you for thriving in the future.
