On 25th November 2020 at 11:30am GMT, ROQ will be hosting a webinar on the very important topic of ‘The Future of Test Automation’.

Mike Hawkes
As CTO of Capventis, a customer experience and data analytics company, Mike Hawkes develops large-scale integrations and predictive analytics systems. With a low-level knowledge of networks and database technologies, Mike has taken an active role in the promotion of graph databases and API developments using GraphQL. He believes test and test automation teams need to address challenges faced when dealing with cloud services and highly connected systems. As dependencies on third party cloud services grow, so do the challenges in providing a consistent end-to-end testing model. Mike helps to address these issues within IT strategies and designs.

Neill McCarthy
Neill is an experienced SQE and Test leader with 30 years experience all sectors both in the UK and Internationally. He has worked with a wide range of opensource and leading vendor tools across both functional and non functional testing. Neill’s latest role was working with IBM as an Associate Partner and CTO for their Testing Services looking at hybrid cloud and organisational change to support the move to DevOps at scale.


With the importance of software now driving business change and future success, there has never been a more important time to ensure that the quality is of the highest standard, all while delivering at pace and our two guests are thought leaders in this space.

Currently, Test Automation plays a huge part in driving quality at speed but what does the future hold? What will happen in the next 5 years to the way software is written, built or delivered? What will the expectations on quality be? What impact will that have on testing, and what part will test automation play in that. Our fantastic panellists will be discussing just this on 25th November 2020. 


Join us for what will be an insightful and informative discussion.
