Today continuous delivery is enabling modern organizations to become leaders in fast-emerging, technology-driven markets
To deliver software that accurately reflects constantly changing user needs, more organizations are moving toward continuous delivery. Continuous testing helps ensure that quality is built in from the requirements, while validating each component at the development level before it enters the system.
Continuous testing is integrated into an end-to-end continuous delivery ecosystem that’s capable of taking an idea from design to operations at speed, without compromising quality.
This whitepaper provides insights on how to iteratively and accurately capture the desired user functionality by continuous testing.
In this whitepaper:
Barriers to Continuous Testing: A Choice between Speed and Quality
Creating production-like test environments
The End-to-End Continuous Delivery Ecosystem
Continuous testing in the deployed QA environment does not stop with functionality
500 million tweets a day are shaping consumer opinion. Are you equipped to manage this new reality? Do you have the applications at the front-end to perform flawlessly, capturing and holding the loyalty of your customers, seamlessly connecting with the enterprise?” These were the thought-provoking questions asked by Mike Gregoire, CEO, CA Technologies [NASDAQ: CA], in his keynote address for CA World 2014. The questions reflect the era of application economy where organizations are under an ever-increasing pressure to deliver new applications and services at an increasingly rapid pace. Increased demand for faster software release cycles require developers, testers, and performance teams to work in parallel.

Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) seeks to foster collaboration between the business and IT, inspired by the notion of a ‘ubiquitous language’, taken over from Domain Driven Development. As modern organizations rely increasingly on software that can provide value to its customers, IT teams are required to deliver fully tested software that delivers on changing business needs, faster, and for less. This whitepaper provides insights on how behavior driven requirements can be accurately formulated so that they can be successfully implemented in development. It examines how these core principles of fostering collaboration and clarity between the business and IT can be best implemented during the development lifecycle. This whitepaper highlights: Incompleteness in Behavior-Driven Requirements Model Based Testing and BDD Flowchart Modeling as a Part of BDD Quickly and Easily Respond to Change

Transformation to DevOps and the implementation of continuous delivery go hand in hand. There is a need to stand back and rethink the way your delivery pipelines work, and challenge every point at which manual intervention takes place, custom scripts are relied on and handoffs occur. Success at scale requires building the right process and tooling framework to enable continuous delivery. This whitepaper provides insights on how continuous delivery can enable a step change in IT performance and bring everyone in development and operations closer to the business. This DevOps Whitepaper highlights: The Evolution from Agile to DevOps to Continuous Delivery Continuous delivery fundamentals: Automation and orchestration across the entire delivery pipeline Creating a continuous delivery framework: From piecemeal tooling to a properly integrated environment Making the business case: Continuous delivery can enhance both the top and bottom lines
What is Software Testing ?
Software testing is a process used to determine the exactness and quality of developed computer software. It includes a set of activities conducted with the intent of finding bugs in software. In a nutshell it is a process to check whether the absolute results match the expected results and to make sure that the software system is error free.
What is Testing Strategy ?
Testing strategy refers to a set of guidelines that aid the test design and regulates the process of testing and how it should be done. The chief components of the testing strategy are objectives and scope, documentation formats, team reporting structure, test processes, client communication strategy and so on. It narrates the general approach put forward in the process of testing. The steps of the testing strategy aids to inform the project managers, developers, and testers about the main issues faced during the testing process. The testing strategy is the chief component of software testing efficiency.
What is Continuous Testing ?
Continuous Testing is the practice of continuous risk assessment, quality and application tests in shorter cycles during software development process to speed it up, minimizing software failures and the respective losses from a business requirement perspective. Continuous testing involves frequent, automated and parallel assessments of software as it is continuously developed.
