Is the concept of adopting a continuous everything model a daunting task for your fast moving business? Read this whitepaper to break down and understand one of the key pillars of this model in Continuous Governance: The Guardrails for Continuous Everything.

In a recent podcast that I recorded with Perfecto's CTO, Uzi Eilon, we discussed the rise of advanced interfaces that complicates the efforts around test automation. 

In such cases, teams either neglect the testing, or perform them manually, and there is a cost to that.

What we covered in the podcast:

  • How to automate use cases that leverage the camera, like a barcode, check deposit, etc.

  • How to automate advanced authentication methods that require a fingerprint or face-id authentication.

  • How to automate voice related use cases, either such that use Siri, or chatbots. Here we touched tools like IBM Watson, voice-to-speech, text to voice and instrumentation methods.

  • Testing apps for smart speakers like Amazon Alexa (Skills) using built-in tools and JavaScript.

  • Lastly, we touched sample IoT testing use cases from the healthcare industry that depends on BLE (Bluetooth low energy) connectivity as part of the overall traffic and testing.
