In 2021, Janet Gregory introduced her vision for holistic testing, an approach to development where testing is embedded in every part of the software delivery cycle. From automation to exploratory testing, her holistic approach helps leaders to understand when to best optimize testing in a true DevOps culture. Modern companies more than ever are faced with increasingly distributed teams, complex quality tasks, and rapidly evolving development cycles.

In this discussion, Janet will share ideas how leaders can effectively confront quality challenges through a holistic testing approach, while continuing to deliver high quality products.
