Impacts of DevOps on Testing
August 21, 2015
DevOps testing needs to address the need of Business and Technology needs. Automation plays a major role to achieve this aim. DevOps in principle has a goal for better product quality albeit the need for faster delivery. Terms such as “Shift-Left”, “Fail-First, Fail-Fast, Fail-Often” will be regular vocabulary in DevOps. DevOps Test team comprises of Cross Functional Specialists and Testing Purists. A Performing Testing Practice for DevOps will take some time. Testing as a practice has matured over the past two decades and is well equipped to support DevOps. Use of automation and productivity enhancement tools helps testing move faster.

Successful DevOps implementation in large firms with legacy processes and technology is a challenge. A big culture change is the only way to achieve success in such firms. It will be a hybrid DevOps Model as purist implementation will be a challenge.
