Nov 11, 2016 | Press Releases

SAN JOSE, CA. October 24, 2016. Conformiq, which is transforming software testing with the most sophisticated and comprehensive automated test design solution in the industry, will participate in the 16th Annual International Software Testing Conference (STC 2016.) This year’s theme is “Fast Forward to High Quality: How to invent the future while managing the present?”

Dr. Stephan Schulz, Conformiq CTO, will deliver a keynote speech titled “’Eliminating’ modeling in MBT.”

The presentation recognizes that Model-Based Testing (MBT) has been around for many years as an advanced test automation solution. Even though it has received significant traction in industry, it still has so far not been able to establish itself as a wide spread test design technique. In his talk, Dr. Schulz will look deeper into the reasons why this has happened – and what he believes will change it. After a quick introduction into MBT basics, he will present the evolution taking place in modeling for testing over the past years, and finally explain why adoption of MBT has become recently much easier than ever.

When: The event will take place on 1-2 December 2016.
Where: The Park Plaza, Sy #90/4 Marathahalli, Outer Ring Road, Munnekollalu Village | Bangalore 560037 | India

Dr. Schulz is currently the CTO of Conformiq, product owner of Conformiq’s Enterprise IT product line, former Chair of the ETSI Technical Committee for Methods and Specification, and leader of the review group in the ISTQB MBT working group. Prior to working at Conformiq, he has been a user and evaluator of MBT tools and worked for 8 years deploying the test automation language TTCN-3 in industry while working as a resident testing specialist at ETSI as well as the Nokia Research Center. He has been an author and co-author of numerous publications and standards on modeling and testing.
