Updating Testing Practices for DevOps

Helping organisations understand the changes necessary to realise the benefits of Agile and DevOps without compromising on quality or delivery schedules.

A new way of working

In today’s modern world of Agile and DevOps there are a multitude of challenges for organisations and teams to ensure software meets the required quality levels. By updating testing and quality assurance practices, there are huge benefits that can be realised.

The challenges

Delivering software in smaller, highly prioritised work packages maximises the value to the customer in the shortest time possible. However, this way of working creates new difficulties such as customer expectations changing, difficulties with new technologies, new requirements and changing priorities all on a regular basis. All of which present challenges to testing and quality assurance.

Regression testing

This iterative way of working presents a real challenge when it comes to regression testing. Not only do teams need to test the new functionality from the latest sprint, but they also need to test previous sprints. Test automation is the only real solution but is problematic in smaller project teams with less testing resource.

nFocus’ support

nFocus’ award-winning services are designed to underpin Agile and DevOps in a variety of ways. Having worked with hundreds of organisations we understand the changes necessary to ensure testing and quality assurance achieve business objectives.

Our testing Health Check will identify areas for improvement and deliver a step-by-step roadmap to realise these recommendations. We can assess your automation readiness or firefight existing automation problems. We can recommend tooling that fits both your technology stack and your expertise.

Our technical test professionals can help reduce the burden of test automation on the wider team whilst mentoring the rest of the team on their quality responsibilities. Alternatively, we can accelerate your automation efforts, leaving you with the assets to maintain and add to. We can even look after your test automation under a managed service.
