The age of customer calls for continuous testing. A Forrester study confirms that unprecedented speed of software delivery has made quality and speed a strategic pursuit for enterprises. While true integration with Dev and Ops brings immediate visible acceleration, quality engineering through continuous testing ensures the outcomes of DevOps results in market leadership. This phenomenon called DevTestOps is an option that leading global analysts and researchers are advocating for impeccable software that propels businesses as customers look for first time ready software.
The concept of DevTestOps can imply either the merging of the Development, Testing, and Operations teams of an organization, or it could mean forming a middle layer of sorts that contains elements of both the teams. Whatever may be the case, DevTestOps is fast emerging to be the key to enterprise cloud. DevTestOps can be viewed as a potential solution to proving the benefits of cloud and improving the efficiency of IT operations, thereby accelerating the faster release of applications.
DevTestOps is the mixture of practices, philosophies, culture, and tools that enhance an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at significantly high velocity. This enables enterprises to serve their customers better and obtain a competitive advantage. The services spectrum in DevTestOps streamline management of the infrastructure, deployment of the app code, and automation of the release process. Software testing services help ensure that the various technology tools and solutions are adeptly adopted by enterprises and function robustly.
