Testing assumes a crucial role in the fast-paced world of digital transformation, where new technologies constantly emerge and consumer expectations rise to new heights. It serves as a beacon, meticulously assessing software, systems, and applications to make sure they satisfy the constantly shifting requirements of the digital age.

LambdaTest had the pleasure of interacting with Maaret at EuroStar 2023, a distinguished thought leader in the testing space with more than 530 speaking sessions. She gave intriguing perspectives on digital transformation, the significance of testing, and various aspects of the field.

Maaret challenges the notion that testing is often an afterthought process. She emphasizes the need for clear communication and alignment on terminologies within the industry.

“Learning to ask for examples and figuring out what others mean by digital transformation or testing is crucial. We often talk past each other due to misconceptions or differing interpretations of terms. Aligning on definitions and terminology is essential to truly embrace testing as an integral part of digital transformation.”

Moving forward, Maaret acknowledges the value of certain metrics like Release Times from the perspective of upper management and CXOs and its impact on customer experience.

“How long does it take for us to make releases? By tracking this metric, we can have the right conversations about moving testing to where versatile discussions on quality can happen, rather than cramming it into the final stages of development.”

The conversation takes an intriguing turn as Marat addresses the relationship between Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) and testing. When discussing the intersection of SRE and testing, Maaret suggests,

“Production monitoring, observability, and the SRE space are areas where testers can explore and expand their skill set. Gaining insights into customers’ real-life experiences and understanding production environments enhances our ability to deliver quality products.”

In closing, Maaret discusses the role of AI in testing and shares insights on successful public speaking and contributing to the testing community.
