Helping Leaders Thrive with Disruption
Many companies make “disruption” their goal. They believe if they just develop the right innovation, they will disrupt their markets forever and drive the kind of growth worthy of a magazine cover story. But that’s not how disruption works. Disruption doesn’t create growth; growth creates disruption. While growth is always hard, disruptive growth is exponentially harder. It requires companies to make tough decisions in the face of daunting uncertainties: Should we bet our company’s future on the next-generation customer or today’s reliable one? Should we abandon our current business model for an entirely new one? Disruption demands bold leadership and, often, massive cultural transformation. To be on the right side of that disruption requires having a growth strategy that aligns the entire organization around the future customer experience, as well as the leadership and culture to execute that strategy.

The 12 Must-Dos for Continuous Software Testing
In the age of digital disruption teams need to develop software faster. Agile + DevOps becomes a must, and continuous delivery the goal. But faster delivery cannot come at the cost of lower quality. So how can teams continue to push for faster development without letting testing hinder their progress? The answer: continuous testing. Diego will introduce a dozen must-dos that will bring application development and delivery (AD&D) continuous testing practices up to speed.

Leading Change in the Experience Economy
Customer Experience has never been more important. In every industry, companies are innovating and transforming the way they deliver convenient, personalized, and amazing experiences to their customers. Alok Kulkarni will be sharing key trends and how the world’s leading CX Assurance Platform is helping to accelerate and enable this change today and in the future.
Xchange 2019 begins with the return of our Ideathon session. Some called it an icebreaker, others a technical brainstorming session, and some felt it was the best networking opportunity at the conference. Most definitely, it will get your creative juices flowing as we invite you each to bring your coolest idea on how you use Cyara (or how you want to use Cyara) – with Cyara’s REST APIs and ability to invoke external web services as part of test cases execution, the sky is the limit.
There are no bad ideas and we’ll discuss anything you want to share, or simply listen as others share ideas that emerge on the spot. Feel free to send a slide or two prior to the session with XchangeNews@Cyara.com – a picture is worth a thousand words. After going around the room and some vigorous discussions, this 3-hour session will culminate in awards for the very best ideas.
Register now, as space is limited.
Ideathon was phenomenal and actually blew my mind. With many attendees contributing to the 30+ ideas as we explored pain points from the variety of the folks in the room.Save My Seat
