Next Generation Testing Solutions from IBM Rational

Building quality into an application requires the deep commitment and collaboration of every person on the project team. It involves an iterative process and a set of tools to help team members automate error-prone aspects of their work, freeing them to focus on creativity and value. And the testing team has a unique responsibility because they are responsible for finding mistakes in the various aspects of quality (functionality, usability, etc.) that slip through the cracks. IBM Rational addresses all these needs with a host of tools that are part of the IBM Software Development Platform, a complete and modular platform for teams who build business applications, embedded systems, and software products.

An exclusive invitation to the Next Generation Testing Solutions from IBM Rational Seminar - Your chance to meet the IBM team that develops the Testing tools!

In this seminar IBM will unveil new and enhanced technologies for ensuring the quality of Java, VS.NET, Web and terminal-based applications. Whether you need support for Manual testing ,Automated functional or Load testing, these innovative products reduce the complexity of tool adoption for the novice, while increasing test flexibility and power for the expert. And you will learn all these from the creators of the tools themselves! Don't miss this chance to meet the team and discuss the products in depth with them. Whether you are a novice or an advanced tester or a business analyst who primarily does manual testing, you will want to attend this session.

Performance Testing with IBM Rational Testing Tools – Tanuj Vohra
Application performance is critical to a positive customer experience. The difficulty of validating system performance and identifying the cause of poor performance affects all organizations deploying multi- user applications. This session will show how to use IBM(R) Rational(R) Performance Tester to validate multi-user performance before application deployment. IBM Rational has just re-architected IBM(R) Rational(R) Performance Tester. Major improvements in ease-of-use and scalability will make multi-user performance testing easier and more cost effective than ever before. With the included IBM Performance Optimization Toolkit, diagnosing and resolving bottlenecks found during testing is a snap. Join this session to learn how IBM Rational Performance Tester 6.1 can help you verify the performance of your Web applications before they go live. Three will be a short demo of the tool at the end of the presentation.
