Keynote sessions

First out of the gate was our CEO, Kevin Thompson. This was Kevin’s first virtual summit since he joined us in April 2021, and he was a fan favorite. Kevin explained how digital business requires change, and how any cloud, DevOps, or similar initiative requires modernization of software testing. Regardless of your digital business need, Tricentis has the testing tools to help you modernize your testing efforts, now, driving you to win by accelerating speed, increasing quality, and lowering cost. You can watch his full session, Accelerating digital business transformation, here.

Following Kevin’s keynote was Wolfgang Platz, our Founder, Chief Strategy Officer, and all-star speaker. Wolfgang has taken part in all of our virtual summits to date, and he never disappoints. His session revolved around boosting your cloud migration confidence and how Tricentis’ comprehensive tool offerings can help you get there. Wolfgang shares our 6-step list of action items that have helped customers tame the beast of cloud migrations and allowed them to stay fit in the new world. There’s still time for you to do the same. Tune into Wolfgang’s on-demand session, Boost your cloud migration confidence, today.
