Cost Effective Methods for Test Environments Management
In order to effectively support the variety of typical test scenarios across the enterprise, there is a need for automation, performance and mobile environments for each application under test. In a typical IT shop, where cost is always on the radar, procurement of environments for such specific testing needs may not be practical. At the same time, the procured environments need to be setup and maintained over time. This presentation discusses the best practices in leveraging cloud based infrastructure to address testing environment needs. The details of the presentation will also discuss the recommended processes and potential challenges in establishing cloud based test environments. It has been practically observed across industry verticals that setting up a cloud environment can potentially return huge cost savings versus a physical environment.
