For organizations developing large-scale projects, transitioning to agile is challenging enough. If your organization has not yet adopted an automation culture, brace yourself for yet another challenge because automation is essential to agile success. From the safety nets provided by automated unit and acceptance tests to the automation of build, build verification, and deployment processes, the iterative nature of agile demands a culture of automation across your engineering organization. Geoff Meyer shares lessons learned in adopting a test automation culture as the Dell Enterprise Systems Group simultaneously adopted Scrum and agile processes across its entire software product portfolio. Learn to address the practical challenges of establishing an automation culture at the outset by ensuring that your organizational makeover incorporates changes to your hiring, staffing, and training practices. Find out how Dell ESG applied automation beyond the basics of test case automation to areas that included setup & configuration, continuous integration, scale and longevity testing.
