Without continuous testing there is no continuous delivery

Continuous testing is a critical part of the handoff between development and IT operations. Successful Agile teams using DevOps practices fully integrate testing into their software development lifecycle. Continuous testing provides project teams with continuous feedback and enables them to test earlier, with greater coverage removing traditional testing bottlenecks such as unavailable test environments. IBM’s comprehensive continuous testing solution covers UI and integration Test Automation, performance testing and Service Virtualization, ensuring that customers can approach all of their DevOps testing challenges with confidence.

Continuous Testing

Continuous testing, along with collaborative development support the evolution of a business idea into a high quality software solution by applying lean principles, facilitating collaboration among all stakeholders, and striking the optimal balance between quality and time to market.

If the objective is to accelerate delivery of higher quality software, organizations need to test continuously as these enable continuous delivery.

Continuous testing requires organizations to:
