TestOps is a true game changer
The past few years have shown us how present the digital world is nowadays. More and more companies have established an online presence to position themselves in the market. Now, software of good quality is being delivered faster, while excessive costs and efforts are decreasing.
Let’s cut right to the chase: In order to survive in the modern digital age, companies must adapt. TestOps enables you to start your digital modernization step by step. It brings overall many benefits, but for this blog post, we will focus only on the 3 key features.
In case you want to dive deeper into this topic, don’t hesitate to have a look at our white paper. It gives a good insight into the vast world of testOps, and you can download it for free.
The first advantage testOps offers is a better orchestration of your test case execution. This is crucial, especially if your projects consist of many Agile teams.
It allows that all test executions – from API testing to UI testing – are managed by the testOps orchestrator throughout all layers, thus creating a high overall coverage.
In general, better orchestration leads to less time-consuming processes and helps to save money. Without testOps, this is just not technically feasible.
Automation across every layer
The second reason why testOps is the future of testing is that it comes with a wide range of test automation types adhering to the test pyramid. According to its rule, every test case that can be automated should be automated.
By automating every test case possible, testOps reduces the complexity and effort of manual tests as much as possible. This reaches from integration tests to end-to-end tests.
The result? Along with saving money, you will achieve faster and more efficient testing than ever before. And let’s not forget about the fact that the risk of potential errors that could occur due to manual testing are decreased to the bare minimum.
Agile teams and rapid feedback
Last but not least, we consider the fact that testOps introduces engineers to an Agile environment as the third main point. Following the Agile methodology, testers and developers work in parallel with smaller pieces of code and in shorter, regular intervals called sprints.
Now, the testing process starts in early stages of the software development lifecycle, and every process becomes continuous. For instance, testOps allows you to have your QA process – orchestrated across Agile teams – plugged into a CI/CD pipeline, just like it does with deployment, monitoring, and so on.
On top of that, allowing your team to operate in an Agile environment enables them to work with fast and actionable feedback from the system. In this manner, they can easily adapt to unexpected changes in the code if needed. You won’t believe how many hours of manual work can be saved by utilizing this technique!
Overall, agility improves the workflow immensely and allows delivering high-quality software to the end customer at a very fast speed. This is exactly what businesses are looking for these days.
All in all, testOps is the secret to success
The market of today demands faster delivery of products than ever before and pushes companies to adapt. TestOps is the right approach to achieve this goal. It lets you save excessive costs, time and effort, while improving efficiency, quality and time to market. It is not only necessary for testers but also a great DevOps solution.
