Three Core DevOps Values for Testers to Know

With DevOps, modern software teams of all shapes and sizes are aiming to deliver a high-quality software production early and often. Shifting testing earlier into your development lifecycle and smartly using test automation to reduce bottlenecks can create a more seamless, collaborative business.

Cranes changing building architecture Engineering Architecture Systems for a Faster Build

In the era of continuous integration and continuous deployment, big applications are creating bloated build pipelines. The problem is when code becomes so entangled that every change impacts large portions of the system, meaning there’s a lot to rebuild. If you reshape the code architecture, you can reduce build times.

Padlock Make Your Security Testing More Agile

Security practices traditionally have followed a waterfall model, adding security testing on at the end. Organizations need to coach their security programs and testers to prioritize analysis and risk, much like we do with agile stories, to better incorporate security defects with other feature work along the way.

Bottleneck Finding the Bottlenecks in the Agile and DevOps Delivery Cycle

To achieve incremental software development and continuous feedback, you need to eliminate the tasks that create bottlenecks, which hinder the flow of development. A chain is no stronger than its weakest link, and identifying these “weak links” is a critical step toward achieving agility and increasing efficiency.

Acceleration Build the Right Things and Build Them Fast: Accelerate the Continuous Delivery Pipeline

When most people think about continuous delivery, they think of improving the build-test-deploy-operate cycle. They don’t think about how to improve the intake process. Ensuring that quality is built into the application—not tested for after the fact—is the key to achieving accelerated continuous delivery.

Connected devices in the Internet of Things DevOps Helps Enterprises Deliver Better, Faster Software for the IoT

As the world becomes more connected, it’s changing the way we do things, especially in relation to software delivery. For starters, software development for IoT applications presents obstacles concerning security, privacy, and unified standards. But we need look no further than DevOps to find the answers.

spinning globe Testing in Agile and DevOps: Where Are We Going?

When looking at what the software market is currently talking about, the top item is DevOps and Continuous Integration/Deployment, which seems to be taking over some of the spotlight from agile and is now a widely accepted new normal. Hans Buwalda looks at where the future of software testing is going.

speed enforcement camera 3 Key Contributors to Software Development’s Demand for Speed

Why does software development demand so much speed? We throw around terms like “agile” or “DevOps” and consider that a good enough answer for the demand for speed, but there are three major factors outlined by Mark Levy, the director of strategy at Micro Focus, that call for greater development speed.
