In my first contribution on the HP Future of Testing blog, “10 keys to building a successful Quality Center of Excellence”, I briefly described 10 key elements to empower a POSITIVE quality transformation. Today, let’s discuss the importance of commitment to Quality.
I have been an automated software test engineer for years, and I thought I knew everything I needed to know in the industry.
But then I discovered an ISTQB Software Test Foundation Course and my professional life was changed forever.

Are you trying to figure out how tame the mobile testing chaos? You know you need to test on real devices… you know you need to automate… but are not sure where to start.
Good news. At this year’s HP Discover in Las Vegas, we’re going to have a great half day mobile testing training focused on using UFT and UFT Mobile. As you know, UFT Mobile enables automated testing on real devices, managed in your private cloud. It’s simple, powerful and a great extension to HP Unified Functional Testing.
Here’s your chance to take control and learn how to solve the problem once and for all. In this session, you will have a chance to learn from a top notch mobile testing expert from Perfecto Mobile, who will walk you through how to solve for the mobile challenges.
When: Tuesday, June 11 at HP Discover in Las Vegas, you can attend a half day training session titled “Mobile Functional Testing with UFT Moble”. The session will be hands on and will give you a chance to learn about how UFT and UFT Mobile, give you complete control over your mobile testing obstacles. --> Automate, Acclerate and Deliver Quality mobile apps.
The cost per training course is only $99.. This is a $400 savings off the normal fee. This Vivit Advanced Training course can be added to your new or existing HP Discover conference registration account.
Questions? Unable to attend HP Discover but would like to attend Vivit Advanced Training? Contact Laura Walker, Education Chair, Vivit Board of Directors.

How long would it take for one tester to test JUST the front end of an application with 10 data entry screens, each with 10 fields that accept two data types? Remember, you also need to accomplish positive and negative testing. If one field will take up to ten characters, then you will need to test one, two, and then three all the way up to ten characters - for EACH field, on EACH screen. Also, there are the combinations between the fields. How long will it take?

How can you bake a good recipe for combining manual testing, automated testing, testing framework and accelerators?
Manual testing is still the most popular way of testing software, however organizations are constantly aiming to increase automation, today more than ever giving agile, continues integration and continues delivery being increasingly adopted by application teams.
Andrew Flick, Senior Product Manager at HP came up with a maturity model that explains the advantages and challenges of moving from one step to another through the testing maturity model. His model is explained through two parts. Today we are posting part 1:

The scope and complexities of software testing are increasing as new technologies and environments emerge, applications become more advanced, and users become smarter and impatient. Including test automation as part of your strategy is a good solution for increasing quality and pace but you’re then faced with numerous considerations and challenges.
What are these challenges and how do we overcome them?
What does HP has to offer?
What does time mean to you? I know for me, time is everything. I need the days to be at least 36 hours to accomplish everything I have to get done. Luckily, HP has a new testing solution to help me maximize my time.
This video will share with you my secret for multiplying time. (And no, I am not a magician held by some code. I am happy to share my secrets)
One of the hottest topics in today’s testing domain—and in software development in general—is the movement to Continuous Integration (CI).
HP is no stranger to this domain; we create software solutions to address the new challenges that arise from CI, we also perform our own development using CI.
Continue reading to find out what we are doing in the CI realm.
Queue the theme to “Star Trek” (Captain Kirk, not any other). Your mission is to find the right process and methodologies for your testing group. To further complicate matters, your organization has a hard time deciding on SDLC processes or strategies. And the Romulans are going to attack at any minute.
Sometimes a feeling is all we humans have to go on.

I’m writing this blog post on the 10th anniversary of my start date at HP – or Mercury as we used to be known. I thought that it might be an interesting exercise to see where we’ve come in those ten years. Read on to find out what's changed...

HP Discover 2012 at Frankfurt is packed. Full of people, and full of things that I’m learning in each and every session or booth I stop by (and I consider myself an “insider”!). One important thing, which was announced a month ago, is HP Unified Functional Testing 11.5. We are making it available for HP internal usage too. Here is what this is going to provide to HP IT and HP R&D.
Does the tail wag the dog? Or does the tool that drives the process? Groups in HP that can help you become the center of excellence.
Yes sir we like our working here for you Boss Man
How elaborate is your automated execution reports, do you spend as much time automating scripts as you do writing functions for the report engine? Has the performance of your scripts taken a hit for the sake of information management?
This article is for those automatons that don’t read the test case completely trough before starting the automation process only to step right into the manure when you see this simple step “Print and verify Report” or “Get invoice number off of PDF” in a test case? In my case this is always happen on the second to last step in of those lengthy 101 steps test scenarios that the clients always seem to think that are mission critical.
One of the biggest differences between an automator and application developer has been the tools and coding language limitations, we employ to get the job done. Let me be the first to say Automated test developers welcome to the world of Integrated Development Environment.
The biggest question of all is how can automated testing remain efficient and not become too expansive or difficult to implement in this new world of application development?
I’d like to invite you to join the “What’s New” webinar for UFT 11.5 to discover a new world of modern test automation, a world where test automation is based on more visualized and graphical operation and less scripting, a world where ...
Testers can embrace new technology and scoff at automation testing tools that still rely on object identification, events and property. Image-state technology isn’t a new concept. But in the past, it’s been very unstable, unreliable and most of all, unmanageable. That why I’ve renamed this feature of Unified Functional Testing (UFT) “Image-based Intelligence”.
Get ready to put HP Unified Functional Testing (UFT) 11.5 at the top of your wish list 2012 and 2013. The newest product of the ALM software family was released today, and I am excited to have it just in time for the Holidays.

When you're testing, how much attention do you pay to the system's response? Is it enough to check that the response is correct? I recently came across an interesting story which illustrates the importance of checking that the response is not only correct, but that it also makes sense.
