Topic #1:  

Tool adoption is difficult to champion across an entire enterprise, and finding the most efficient way to leverage the tools for your enterprise needs is even more challenging. At ADP, an American provider of human resources management software and services, this was no different.  After a comprehensive tool assessment, our experts uncovered many areas for growth.  Join us to learn how we deep-dived into their people, process, and technology to find ways to drive tool adoption further into their ecosystem, and increase efficiency and see what we found to increase their return on investment, including a 50% increase in automated test executions.
