Speaker: Mahesh M

Topic: We have often heard testing teams complaining that they have to wait for days or months to get a test environment, and this becomes a pain when they have to test something to meet deadlines. Depending on external teams for a testing environment is painful; we transitioned and built a testing team which was capable of building their own infrastructure and environments for all testing activities. In this talk I will outline how we did this, and how the entire process was automated based on requirements from the testing team.

Bio: I have never run away from challenges and have always embraced challenges with open arms, since I believe challenges are what can shape a person and provide the opportunities to grow. My journey spanning many years has taken me across various companies like Accenture, Sony, Ellucian providing me an opportunity to learn, contribute and grow.

I have played various Leadership roles on many large-scale engagements across various companies. I have been involved in leading various testing operations and engagements.

Have Managed Challenging and Critical engagements which demanded building, managing, and nurturing high performance, result-oriented teams to support delivery and contribute towards the success of the organization.

I have always enjoyed various opportunities, challenges, success, failures that were thrown at me in my career and have received them equally. Each of them has taught me one or the other lesson and made me only stronger.
