Clear-cut cloud and AI insights from industry leaders

Since cloud and AI are on every tech leader’s radar, we’ve brought these topics to the spotlight in the latest episodes of the Tricentis podcast, Transformation in 10. Thousands of listeners globally have tuned in to hear technical insights and successful strategies to navigate transformations with confidence, courtesy of top experts from Tricentis and beyond.

In our cloud-focused episodes, I had the pleasure of speaking with two formidable C-level leaders, Cornelia Davis (CTO at Weaveworks) and Dr. Grigori Melnik (CPO at Tricentis). And, we couldn’t resist throwing in a bonus episode to talk with one of our recent Tricentis Great Ideas Gathering winners, Dave Colwell (VP of Machine & AI Learning at Tricentis). Of course, we also took this golden opportunity to talk about Tricentis AI solutions. 

This blog gives you a flavor of the episodes, which are available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and more.

If you’re embarking on your journey to the cloud or are unsure where to start, this conversation provides you with the critical foundations for success. Cornelia’s in-depth technical knowledge shines through from start to finish.

Episodes 12 & 13: Dave Colwell at Tricentis muses on the wonders of AI, present, and future

When Dave Colwell, VP of Machine & AI Learning, recently scooped up awards for his team’s AI-driven solution at Tricentis’ Great Ideas Gathering (GIG), the time was ripe to grill him on all things AI. In today’s agile world, documentation is deprioritized, and knowledge is scattered across distributed and highly dynamic team members. Dave divulges how his GIG solution uses AI techniques to convert this scattered know-how into actionable insights. We also explore ways in which AI powers core components of Tricentis products — how AI-powered impact analysis enhances LiveCompare, and how Machine Learning in the Vision AI component of Tosca truly frees up the tester. Dave even gives us exclusive insights into what the future of AI looks like at Tricentis, as featured in this soundbite:
