You may have heard the term â€ścontinuous testingâ€ť and thought it was just a DevOps flavor of the month. Or, you might think it isnâ€™t part of DevOps or isnâ€™t for cloud-based applications. Continuous testing means adopting the right set of automated tests along with service virtualization, which allows the team to simulate missing dependencies, so they can start testing earlier and more frequently.
Marianne Hollier shares how the right combination of best practices and tools can help software development and testing teams adopt a continuous testing approach. You canâ€™t test everything, and you canâ€™t automate all your tests, so Marianne describes how to find the right combination across the practices of defects, test management, test automation, analytics, environments, service virtualization, and test data. In addition, she discusses the tools that enable efficient adoption of these best practices â€“ including Rational Test Workbench and Rational Test Virtualization Server.
