Integrating Effective Testing Strategy into DevOps

Integrating Effective Testing Strategy into DevOps
Technological disruptions like Cloud & Mobility are forcing IT organizations to streamline their Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) in order to simplify development processes, reduce costs and reduce time to market. The DevOps software development method is a response to the interdependence of Software Development and IT Operations that stresses communication, collaboration and integration. By selecting the right set of tools or integrated platforms that will remove major bottlenecks and inefficiencies in the overall software development process, organizations can save up to 30% of the effort of the release management cycle. Methodologies such as DevOps are adopted and implemented with the objective of streamlining release management cycles, while the key challenges of application quality sustenance can be achieved only through integrated testing within DevOps.

Join Prabhu Meruga as he discusses best practices of integrating an effective testing strategy in DevOps implementation, with a metrics driven approach. He will touch upon the intuitive elements of testing in DevOps, such as controlling the validation costs in ALM, continuous build qualification and automation, test driven development, effective collaboration and automation tools set adoption.
