Continuous Testing in DevOps
Software has shifted from a role of supporting the business to being a major source of innovation, resulting in increased demands for faster development. Agile development results from this demand, increasing the speed of development and delivery. However, this increased pace of development has meant more pressure on Ops and QA teams to release more software reliably. Test teams face a trifecta of pressures based around:
- Increasing complexity of the software that is being tested
- Cost of maintaining dedicated testing environments that cover all supported platforms
- Shortened delivery schedules impact the time available for testing
This Opcito whitepaper briefs about addressing these issues with DevOps, Automation, Virtualization, Cloud, and Continuous testing.
