Branch - Computer Science and Information Technology
In today's era of digital disruption, business enterprises demand quicker time to market, lower cost of ownership, higher levels of quality and increased team productivity. This makes test data and test environment management critical components in meeting business objectives at large.
According to Gartner, "Digital business is driving a faster pace of delivery. Traditional testing teams can neither meet this pace, nor the expanded view of quality required". To bring in this faster pace of software delivery, the test data and environment become critical elements of the testing ecosystem and need to be managed well. The market size for Artificial Intelligence (AI) is expected to reach more than US$125 billion by 2025. The usage of AI/ML techniques is essential to enable testing ecosystems to conquer new frontiers in the digital world, which are increasing every day.
This course helps the students to understand the fundamentals as well as the industry trends in Test Data Management (TDM) and Test Environment Management (TEM) and introduces them to the concepts of building a smart Testing Ecosystem with the help of AI and Data Science. It helps students to develop a fair understanding of the various tools used in building a Testing Ecosystem and focusses on the range of skills that a test engineer needs to become successful.
With the increasing adoption of Agile and DevOps practices, creation and maintenance of complex data sets in different test environments has become a challenge, paving the way to a great career landscape for TDM and TEM engineers.
The course provides a hands-on session on test data and environment management tools. It also covers testing with Python and Machine Learning packages. Some of the key tools used in the practice sessions include JUnit, SonarQube, Selenium, and JMeter.
Students will have to leverage this environment to complete the industry assignment as well as to complete the Part B section of the summative assessment.+ Read More - Read Less
