Atomic Talk Title: Automation – destroy, build, destroy. Because Tomorrow, might be too late for your customers

Where new technologies, innovations and discoveries are occurring that has never been seen before in human history. The magnitude of change is only continuing to increase with days passing by. We have come down from an age of Super Mario to Cyberpunk2077.

When we look at the way organizations are evolving, a lot of emphasis is on user experience. User experience is dependent on not just what solutions we deliver but also on how often we deliver and how fast we deliver. A recent Gartner report states that we still see 25% abandonment rate of an application just after first use, which indeed explain the value user experience carries nowadays.

We are speaking about 100+ systems and how Openreach was able to bring down the regression timeline from 4 days to 10 hours in just 14 months.

On lines of this, we here at BT Openreach have been working on Building a robust automation Methodology for which We have built a magnanimous automation suite, empowered with Container Grid setup capable of running 400 concurrent tests in parallel. when it comes to automation, we don’t always want to speak about an application automation, but the wings can be extended to a lot of things.

We are in the process of changing dimensions from functional towards User Experience and this project plays a crucial role in doing so.
