Agile Development and Continuous Delivery are rapidly becoming the de facto standard for software development. The key business driver behind these initiatives: delivering new functionality to your customers faster. This is easy to state in theory but much harder to achieve in practice: the level of quality of your services must be maintained! If your system goes down once a week every week, your customers are unlikely to be happy.
In order to realize the desired business goals of Agile and Continuous Delivery, it is thus essential that entire team – developers, testers, and the business – have a highly accurate, near real-time measure of the risk and quality associated with the features in your delivery pipeline. This calls for extensive and accurate testing. In fact, making testing the central component of your delivery process is the most critical challenge that teams need to address.
