Transforming Testing for Agile and DevOps
Enterprise Continuous Testing
Even with the most extreme automation, the “test everything” approach is not feasible—or necessary. If you rethink your approach to testing, you can get a thorough assessment of a release candidate’s business risk with much less testing than you’re probably performing today.
“Enterprise Continuous Testing: Transforming Testing for Agile and DevOps” introduces a Continuous Testing strategy that helps enterprises accelerate and prioritize testing to meet the needs of fast-paced Agile and DevOps initiatives. Software testing has traditionally been the enemy of speed and innovation—a slow, costly process that delays releases while delivering questionable business value. This new strategy helps you test smarter, so testing provides rapid insight into what matters most to the business.
This book is written for senior quality managers and business executives who need to achieve the optimal balance between speed and quality when delivering the software that drives the modern business. It provides a roadmap for how to accelerate delivery with high confidence and low business risk. In summary: If you want to realign your Global 2000 organization’s quality process with the unrelenting drive towards accelerated delivery speed and “Continuous Everything,” then you’re in the right place.
