With digital technologies disrupting businesses across industries, it has become imperative for organizations to deliver better software, faster. Continuous integration and delivery are the new aspirations based on Agile and DevOps; hence, testers can no longer be lagging in the race - they need to adapt the practices, skills and technologies to support delivery through continuous testing. However, the challenge is the impact it may have on the ongoing testing demands of an enterprise.
Mindtree’s recent webinar Continuous Testing in an Age of Digital Disruption gave a detailed overview on how and why leading businesses today embrace rapid change.
Our guest speakers - Diego Lo Giudice, VP and Principal Analyst, Forrester Research and Matt Mackenny, Director, Software Quality, The Home Depot, discussed the trends that are driving the needs for continuous testing and how organizations are rapidly transforming their traditional test organization to meet them. The webinar gave insights into the thought leadership that is transforming testing from quality control to quality engineering and how the quality organization is increasingly taking a more relevant role in the software development process.
