Automatic Testing of a Heavily Integrated Software

Running more than 5000 automated system tests on a deployed application with outgoing connections to about 25 other systems, each with their own dependencies, where test data is complex and needs to be in-sync, is a great challenge. Doing it every night, year after year, with the requirement to fail only on the event of actual errors in the application under test, is a nightmare. Still, this is the foundation of Continuous Delivery and DevOps. If you cannot test your software, you cannot deliver with confidence!

This talk wants to inspire you and share how to have a good night of sleep and find proper test results every morning. You will learn the experiences from a five year journey, about problems and findings. Additionally, you will discover the blue-print to an open-source-based software testing solution.
