On-Demand webinar

As organizations move to DevOps, increase speed to production and release software more frequently, it is important to be able to test earlier in the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Come learn best practices from James Bland (AWS Sr. Solution Architect) and hear about one customer’s journey. Adam Satterfield, Director of Testing and Quality at Anthem, will share how he implemented shift-left strategies across development and testing to both accelerate delivery and identify and resolve critical issues before production deployments.

Amazon’s experience in creating innovative products and services has deepened our understanding of the importance of accelerating development, while maintaining code quality and resiliency. This Innovation Tech Talk is the second of a three-part series focused on quality and shift-left testing. 

Join this webinar to learn:

  • The difference between code analysis, functional, load testing and application security analysis, and why all three are important.
  • How to “Shift-Left“ testing and why this is it important to “test early and often”
  • How developers and testers can benefit from faster feedback loops by automating provisioning of testing environments, service virtualization, and continuous integration strategies and governance.
  • How Anthem finds critical issues earlier, stands up dynamic environments, and how their quality assurance organization is keeping developers happy by integrating testing into the CI/CD pipeline.
