Speech title: Advanced analytics and AI based forecasting in your pipeline

Deliver value with the right quality at speed. That's what organizations ask of their high-performing IT delivery teams. To achieve this, IT people need to work closely together and implement continuous quality engineering. The main goals of quality engineering are building quality from the start and supply relevant information about quality and risks of the test object to the stakeholders. This enables timely establishment of their level of confidence that the test object will be able to deliver the pursued business value. TheDevOps culture is the enabler for this way of high-performance IT delivery, using an automated CI/CD pipeline to deliver the right quality at speed. All the automation happening inside the IT delivery pipeline is not focused on having less people involved, instead it has given humans time to work on things that matter.

In this talk, I will discuss how AI-based analytics brings automation to a higher level in the delivery pipeline. We distinguish descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics using AI to implement quality forecasting. By forecasting quality problems teams get timely information needed to solve these problems before anyone experiences a failure. So in this presentation you will learn how advanced analytics contribute to delivering business value at speed.
