In the first article, we covered why continuous testing is critical to the continuous software delivery method and how important it is as a means of protection against digital disruption. In our second article, we highlighted testing’s ability to ensure software quality in Agile and DevOps environments where speed is of the essence. After all, what good are rapid release times if it means inferior software or a long list of needed bug fixes?
In addition to these important insights, Mindtree’s webinar “Continuous Testing in an Age of Digital Disruption” stresses the role collaborative teams play in creating successful platforms that leverage automated processes to maintain the highest level of quality in continuous delivery environments. When teams work together, build together, and grow together, they craft testing processes that only improve over time.
Better Testing Through Better Teams
In the webinar, Diego Lo Giudice, VP and principal analyst at Forrester Research, emphasizes that right processes and the right technology are important paths to success. But he states that what organizations need most is the right partner. Teaming with the right technology partner is paramount in a development climate that undergoes constant change.
Being in an environment of constant change can be intimidating, but Giudice says companies that seek to improve their software development and delivery processes must embrace it. When practicing Agile methodology, and embedding distinct work processes into teams, continuous testing can help ensure that code is written properly right from the start.
Joining Giudice in the webinar, Home Depot’s Matt Mackenny reveals that organizations enjoy greater success producing quality products when they establish sets of teams that work closely together to establish a common pipeline for testing and delivery. For Mackenny, software delivery isn’t just a delivery function, it’s about employing the best processes to get code out the door, while suiting the needs of customers. He believes picking the right teams allows this to happen.
Finally, Chris Manuel of Mindtree Test Engineering Service, who works closely with Mackenny and Home Depot, explains Mindtree’s deep commitment to test engineering services that spans 17 years. Mackenny agrees that Mindtree helped Home Depot define their testing strategies as part of a practical approach to digital transformation.
