General Session: Continuous Testing Process: Catch Defects Early in DevOps

Thursday, April 23: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Software quality has traditionally been a “time-boxed” exercise and we can’t possibly expect that accelerating the SDLC via DevOps will yield better results from a quality perspective. Automating the build-test-release-deploy process will undeniably get the application into the hands of users faster. However, if you haven’t also re-engineered the processes by which the application is built and tested, you’re quite likely flooding your users with more defects at a more rapid rate.

Join Wayne to find out how a holistic continuous testing process can help you balance speed with quality by reducing the number of defects being injected into the application and mitigating existing risks before they progress to the next stage of the SDLC.
