Companies, today, are finding that costs can be significantly reduced by moving test environments to the cloud and implementing automated testing and infrastructure. The temporary nature of test environments creates opportunities to reduce the time it takes to cycle through individual tests. If hours can be shaved down to minutes in the process of setting up an environment, running a test and tearing down the environment, then budgets for test environments can be cut considerably. The impact of cloud adoption on test environments is a valuable advancement in both cost savings and agility. The on-demand model takes advantage of public cloud APIs requiring only payment for the time needed to run automated tests. In this framework, success depends on two things: automated infrastructure and automated acceptance tests. If these two goals can be achieved, the cost savi... (more)

Test Environment Stability | @DevOpsSummit #APM #CloudNative #Monitoring

How often is an environment unavailable due to factors within your project's control? How often is an environment unavailable due to external factors? Is the software and hardware in the environment up to date with the target production systems? How often do you have to resort to manual workarounds due to an environment? These are all questions that you should ask yourself if testing environments are consistently unavailable and affected by outages. Here are three key metrics that you can track that can help avoid costly downtime. Metric: Availability and Uptime Percentage QA and... (more)

The Glitch Economy | @DevOpsSummit @Plutora #DX #CD #DevOps #DigitalTransformation

In today's digitized world, a software glitch can create chaos. For example, in July 2017, a glitch caused the stock prices of blue-chip Nasdaq companies such as Amazon, Apple, Alphabet, eBay and Microsoft to be misreported on websites long after that day's closing bell. Even though the real-world prices of the stocks were unchanged, the sites showed some had taken a nosedive in price and others had nearly doubled. Unsurprisingly, investors were rattled and took to social media to debate the false listings, dragging company names into a cloud of suspicion over something that ha... (more)

Incremental Test Environment Management | @DevOpsSummit @Plutora #DevOps

The Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) methodology is defined by a series of software development stages. The individual stages will include, requirements analysis, design of the software, implementation or development of the software, testing of the software and continuous evolution of the software. Testing is a critical stage of the SDLC and can determine the quality of software being released into live environments. Therefore, it is important to ensure that test environments are reliable and closely aligned to production. Here is a list of possible trouble spots environment... (more)

Enterprise Software Testing Predictability | @DevOpsSummit @Plutora #DevOps #Serverless #ContinuousTesting

How to Boost Enterprise Software Testing Predictability Software development cycles are increasingly difficult to predict, and the uncertainty can make teams feel as if they have lost control over the consistency of software testing. But this doesn't have to be the case. In this article, I will detail here a number of ways to improve the predictability of software testing across multiple teams and projects that will lead to improved performance and greater success. Consistency It's not easy to achieve predictability in software testing for even a single team, but doing so across... (more)
