There’s More to Automation Than Just Testing

Add to calendar

You may have been told “we need to automate all our test scripts” or “we need to test faster, so let’s automate our tests”, but automating only tests likely will not improve your quality or time to market. Applications are continuing to become more and more complex, with integrations to back-end mainframe systems all the way to mobile devices, and everything in between. With this additional complexity, delivering high-quality applications in a timely manner is difficult.

We share how looking at your delivery pipeline to determine where improvements can be made is necessary for removing bottlenecks and streamlining application delivery. We show you examples of how our clients improved their delivery cycles and overall efficiency by implementing service virtualization, test automation, deployment automation, and other continuous delivery best practices and tools.
