Keynote Presentation: Understanding the New International Software Testing Standard – ISO 29119

Friday, April 11: 1:00 PM – 1:45 PM

The state of the art in testing is continuing to evolve with the advent of smart phones, tablets, Agile, mobile and Cloud Computing. There are many industry standards, such as IEEE 829, IEEE 1008, IEEE 1028, BS 7925-1 and BS 7925-1 that contain gaps in definitions, policy, test management and processes as well as poor coverage of non-functional testing. ISO 29119 is a new international standard that defines all levels and phases of testing, defines test processes, test strategy, provides formats for test plans and test cases, test metrics, test techniques and ways to perform risk based testing.
