Ideas in Action is an event series for business and technology leaders with a keen eye on the future and what’s practically possible today.

Discover the future of testing. How? With technical and industry insights, and examples of best practice from Sogeti’s world-leading Digital Assurance and Testing experts.

How do you apply innovation to ensure you remain at the forefront of testing and QA? Find out at the latest Sogeti Ideas in in Action event on 12th June.

Discover the key trends and tools shaping modern testing, from Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Automation to Cognitive QA and Continuous Testing.

Hear from Sogeti’s testing specialists on three hot topics and participate in the panel discussion featuring several of our international experts as they debate how smarter testing really can make value for your business.


Track 1. Continuous Testing in an Agile/DevOps context
Hear recommendations and use cases for the fast and efficient validation of software releases in an Agile and DevOps setting through highly automated tests. This presentation discusses key findings from The Continuous Testing Report 2019, including why starting small, rather than applying continuous testing enterprise-wide, can be the first stepping stone to success.
Key speaker: Mark Buenen is Capgemini/Sogeti’s Global Leader, Digital Assurance and Testing Portfolio.

Track 2. Testing in the digital age – AI makes the difference
Drawing on the book of the same name, this presentation provides a fascinating overview of how AI is helping to transform testing. Discover what new quality attributes testers must now include in the end-to-end testing process, and why It is only a matter of time before any form of testing without AI will not be accepted in the development of new digital products.
Key speaker: Tom Van de Ven is a co-author of the book and High Tech Testing Expert at Sogeti Netherlands.

Track 3. Smarter Testing with AI
Gain insight into Sogeti’s Cognitive QA. This analytics-driven platform based on AI capabilities helps to improve test strategy decision-making to achieve smarter testing at speed. Find out how innovations in analytics, AI and data sciences are driving an intelligent approach to QA – and why it matters.
Key speaker: Antoine Aymer is Sogeti’s Global Strategic Portfolio Director for Testing.
