The pace of business continues to quicken and companies recognize that remaining competitive requires new methods for building, testing and releasing software. Release cadences have greatly accelerated. A 6- to 18-month find-and-fix turnaround is no longer acceptable.

Testing is no longer a single event. It is not something done when development is completed. Instead, it must be done by everyone all the time, even before development starts. Defects and problems must be identified early, instead of being caught or missed when the product reaches the customer.

This is where a “Flight Plan” for your Continuous Testing journey is required.

Join this insightful panel discussion with Adam Auerbach, Alex Martins and Stephen Feloney to learn the 11 Disciplines of Continuous Testing including practices such as Requirements Engineering, Virtualized Environments, Test Data Management, Performance Testing, Pipeline Orchestration and more. Learn what transformation must occur in your testing organization for DevOps success.
