Today businesses are changing rapidly and they need to support rapid innovations and changes. Agility in responding to change is the key to success for every business. DevOps is taking the automation experience to the next level. What still remains behind is the testing phase!
DevOps helps accelerate the TTM, reduce risks and aims to ensure quality at the accelerated pace. To ensure quality, Continuous Testing needs to be done. Continuous Testing is the most important and crucial aspect of DevOps which emphasises continuous process improvement.
Though automation can be considered as a pre requisite to continuous testing, continuous testing is much more. It helps provide process improvements that can prevent future defects from occurring. It plays an important role in providing continuous feedback for your software.
This session will talk about what is Continuous Testing, why it is important and how it is changing the software delivery pipeline. The talk will also cover a few case studies using some popular tools which enable continuous testing.
