On Demand Webinar

In The Beginning there was a model

Using Requirements Models To Drive Rigorous Test Automation.




in the beginning there was a model

Visual modelling is nothing new in software development, from the diagrams today drawn in sprint meetings, to defined methodologies like systems modelling, visual task analysis and UCML. Applied to perennial challenges in testing, modelling can accelerate test creation, reduce test maintenance time, and help define upfront the complex data needed for testing. In their fullest application, models bring stakeholders across the delivery lifecycle into close collaboration: System designers can formulate requirements in visual models, with engineers rapidly developing and testing in parallel from the accurate specifications.  

Jim Hazen will discuss the practical value of different modelling approaches live on this webinar, illustrated through real-world experiences and stories. Posing whether any one approach can realise the full potential of modelling, Jim will hand over to Curiosity Director of Technology James Walker. James will provide a practical demonstration of cutting-edge techniques in model-based test and requirements design, discussing how they are helping organisations design, develop and build quality software in short iterations.
