Paul Derckx will open this track talking about reliability. To drive reliability improvements at Philips MR they are no longer use MTBC/MTBF metric. Instead they use a new reliability metric defined from and focusing on what is key for their customers. Next to the new metric they have defined a reliability framework where inputs from different sources drive improvements of requirements, hardware/software and verification/validation strategy.
Rajesh Yawantikar will dedicate 45 minutes to defect prediction model for estimating project schedule. Many organizations want to estimate the number of defects prior to product's launch. This helps them to estimate the quality of product, maintenance efforts, and risk in meeting schedule. This defect prediction model can aid the project management teams to map the SW milestones and impact of total number of defects on the project schedule and avoid any schedule delays and milestone commitments.
Pini Reznik will open this track with a presentation about testing cloud native applications. He will show how development and testing techniques can help to build complex systems such as a Mesos framework for ElasticSearch and others.
Vipin Jain & Dr. Anubha Jain will give the second presentation of this track, in which they will share their experience testing internet of things. They will explain how to face the challenges of testing the IoT and will give some advices to create an effective strategy.
Do you want to know why testing IoT is not just testing the application and the devices? Register today in QA&TEST to discover it!
QA&TEST will start the third day with the presentation of Peter Francome, about the Virgin Media's journey to intelligent & cognitive test automation. Without the right focus, investment, strategy and support, test automation projects fail to deliver the promised results. In this session, Peter Francome will talk you through how Virgin Media tackled these challenges head-on to build an automation centric test organization that is now equipped to adopt the next generation of test automation techniques.
Derk-Jan de Grood will continue this track with a summary of a sequence of projects that he was involved with and describes the full circle of Test Automation. He will take the attendees on a trip where they experience the phases and challenges with test automation.
And last,Tomaž Nahtigal will explain how his company approached software verification during a redesign of an Electronic Shelf Label for a world's leader in electronic shelf labeling systems.

Bryan Bakker y Peter Wijnhoven will give this tutorial-workshop, in which participants will be working with a 4-step approach to achieve a defined software reliability level. Each step will be presented, after which the participants will apply the concepts and techniques in a real life case. At the end of the workshop all steps will have been demonstrated and participants have hands-on experience to apply the approach in their own environment.
