Past event: Transform Academy: Data Automation in Department for Education

Interested in DevOps and Quality Engineering? The next event in our Transform Academy programme will look at Data Automation in the Department for Education.

Our Transform Academy programme continues and this time we're bringing the series online making it even easier for you to join.

On Wednesday May 10th, we'll be sharing the 5-staged approach taken to build the Quality Engineering practice for the Department for Education. When you consider the volume of data the DfE manages, it's a really impressive case study.

Hosts of the session, Deepak Selvaraj, Director of DevOps and Quality Engineer at Transform, and David Rutter-Close, Principal Test Engineer at Department for Education, will share insights from the Learner Data Service (LDS) project, which automated how DfE collects, storages and matches the data for 8 million pupils a year. In 2022, this greenfield project won the European Software Testing Awards as Most Innovative Project.

Takeaways from the session will be:

  • Role of automation within a highly data focused manual environment

  • Role of Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment in a data test environment

  • Effective metrics that can be used to measure the success of a data test team
