TEST Magazine and sister site www.devopsonline.co.uk together provide authoritative high quality information and news from the IT industry. In order to best disseminate thought-provoking articles and think pieces, we must consistently evolve, ensuring up-to-date information on the latest industry trends. The DevOps Focus Groups are a pivotal mechanism that bring together senior testing professionals for a series of well thought out debates, peer-to-peer networking, and supplier interaction.
In its role as information provider, DevOps Online spends a lot of time speaking and listening to its customers and seeking out innovative ways to meet their needs. It is apparent that senior decision makers wish to discuss their challenges in a meaningful and structured manner, with a view to finding pragmatic and workable solutions to what are invariably complex issues. Suppliers, who are naturally keen to meet these professionals and want to gain a better understanding of the challenges faced and identify how, through meaningful dialogue, assist DevOps Online to launch DevOps Focus Groups for the second year running.
How have the Focus Groups come about?
What are the DevOps Focus Groups and how does it work?
The DevOps Focus Groups consists of 12 workshops, each with its own subject facilitated by an experienced DevOps practitioner/strategist, or an experienced and industry leading supplier – both of who gain the unprecedented opportunity to host and drive forward a debate surrounding the subject matter allocated to their chosen room.
Each workshop runs three times throughout the course of the day, lasting 1.5 hours, with ten delegates per session.
TEST Magazine consistently strives to push the market forward, priding itself on delivering up‑to‑date and cutting edge editorial that helps its readers develop long‑term strategies and implement sustainable solutions.
To enable the magazine to do this it must consistently stay one step ahead of the market and identify up and coming trends, chances, and nuances. As the DevOps Focus Groups attracts over 100 leading software testing professionals in the industry, all of who will be discussing and debating key subjects, this provides a perfect opportunity for TEST Magazine to interact with its readers and report on the industry. Each debate session is voice recorded with results published in a specially designed DevOps Focus Groups Supplement that will be distributed to the wider testing community.
Delegates can of course opt out of the supplement, but those who are happy to be quoted can join a key group of professionals that are instrumental in helping shape and move the market forward.
For those vendors who would like to maximise their brand awareness and showcase their product portfolios the exhibition can be a very cost-effective way of targeting the entire visitor base.
