Near the southern edge of Michigan, less than one mile from the Ohio state line, nestled among all the farms sits the Michigan Technical Resource Park (MITRP). Such facilities actually aren’t all that uncommon in Michigan. In a region where the auto industry has long been a major part of the economy, carmakers and suppliers have long dotted the landscape with private test tracks to evaluate new products. However, this little known 50-year-old facility will…

This mantra for enterprise agility has always been publicly available as one of the twelve principles on which the Agile manifesto was defined. The question is, despite it being in existence for almost two decades, why aren’t more enterprises following these principles? Negligence, lack of awareness, or maybe they simply do not care? Whatever the reason may have been, it has resulted in a failed Agile adoption – pushing enterprises spiraling down the ladder of quality and…

Technical Challenge Your test team wrote SQL queries to test data across different legs of the data process. But they need to execute them manually using a SQL editor, dump them into Excel and compare them by eye (this is known as ​‘Sampling’). This process is time-consuming, resource-intensive and inefficient. How can you improve and automate this? The QuerySurge Solution QuerySurge, the Data Testing solution designed for testing Big Data, Data Warehouses, the ETL process, and BI…

In the last few Selenium tutorials, we discussed various commonly and popularly used commands in WebDriver, handling web elements like Web Tables, Frames and handling exceptions in Selenium scripts. We discussed each of these commands with sample code snippets and examples so as to make you capable of using these commands effectively whenever you are encountered with similar situations. Amongst the commands we discussed in the previous tutorial, few of them owe utmost importance. As we move ahead in the…

In 2018, Nick Elprin, CEO and Co-Founder of Domino Data Lab, said, “Sixty percent of companies plan to double the size of their data science teams in 2018. Ninety percent believe data science contributes to business innovation. However, less than 9% can actually quantify the business impact of all their models, and only 11% can claim more than 50 predictive models working in production.” The figures for converting data science projects into corporate business success stories hasn’t…

A lot of teams have the tendency to view test automation as a way of speeding up delivery of software as this is often the perceived bottleneck within the team, but if they were to take a deeper look at their development practices as a whole, they may get better results. Preventing bugs Testing, and especially test automation at the UI level, has a tendency to occur at the end of the software delivery pipeline,…

After a puzzling standoff with California’s Department of Motor Vehicles in December in which Uber refused to apply for a $150 permit to test a self-driving vehicle fleet in San Francisco, the company has reversed course and is preparing to complete the application process. The ride-hailing service, which shipped its initial fleet of 16 automated Volvo XC90 SUVs out of San Francisco to Arizona just before Christmas after the DMV revoked registrations to operate them in California, is readying new vehicles for…

A lot of practical realities like cost and operational reliability mean that the kind of go-anywhere full self-driving capability people like Elon Musk aim for is unlikely to come to the mainstream anytime in the near future. Even the sort of limited geofenced capabilities being piloted by companies like Waymo and Aptiv will probably remain restricted for years to come. There is however, a very interesting form of level 4 automation being prepared by Bosch…
