*** Breakout Rooms Networking Sessions Precede 6:00-6:30pm ***
As enterprises continue to turn to APIs to unlock innovation and meet modern business demands, ensuring API quality—without sacrificing speed and time to market—has become an increasing challenge. Companies are looking for ways to accelerate the design, development, and adoption of APIs, and require scalable automation in order to integrate their automated API testing into CI/CD pipelines.
In this session, SmartBear Sr. Director of Product Management, Alianna Inzana will show how engineering quality throughout each stage of the API Lifecycle enables organizations to react more quickly to shifting consumer needs and even meet future deployment challenges. Attendees will also learn how the ReadyAPI platform accelerates functional, security, and load testing, and enables essential collaboration and teamwork, even between increasingly distributed workforces.
Attendees will take away:
--Some of the key findings around API quality from the 2020 State of API Report
--The role testers can play at each stage of the API Lifecycle
--How testers can help ensure end-to-end quality across all web services through a single interface
--Where service virtualization can provide a deeper understanding of API specification than from documentation alone
--How organizations are leveraging the new integration between two industry leading solutions: ReadyAPI and SwaggerHub
