Testing professionals today must trust their testing processes, and that trust is broken when the data is bad. Bad data is also costly, leading to as much as 30% of lost revenue. Curtis O’Dell, Global Business Performance Director, Data Integrity at Tricentis, discusses the costs, sources, and consequences of bad data. Learn about the seven basics of data quality and how the Data Integrity engine in Tosca facilitates monitoring them at scale. Data Integrity creates trust in your organization’s processes, provides an end -to-end view of your data’s quality, allows anyone in the process to automate testing, and pinpoints problems. Finally, Curtis discusses the gains in quality and speed that TJ Maxx and Mercedes-Benz realized by optimizing their data quality.

He explores the differences between on-prem and cloud-based upgrades, how you can mitigate the significant business impacts you’ll experience during migration, and how we help you shift left into earlier planning. He’ll demonstrate how qTest can aggregate requirements from multiple user groups and help you build technical assets ahead of time, leading to increased quality. He also breaks down how Tosca increases resource versatility and contributes to an uptick in tech skills among manual users.

Nate Brown, Managing Director Global IT – HR Platforms at Accenture, details how his organization used Tosca to successfully migrate from SAP to Workday over a span of eight months. The professional services organization shifted left and enabled a multiplatform approach for HR, finance, and reference data for more than 700,000 employees, with no automation in place at the outset. Although taking an automation-first approach with more than 1,000 apps and 7,000 – 10,000 test cases was no small feat, Accenture successfully automated Workday and realized a 6.4M cost savings. Learn how the organization decreased their testing efforts by 88%, supported all phases of testing, launched a reusable test library, and upskilled a team of first-time users in six weeks.
