QA in DevOps – Why a great development team isn’t enough?
While addressing customer demands and shortening the lead time between design and deploy, DevOps QA has a larger role to play today. Although DevOps can speed up development, having a solid QA strategy is critical since it helps prevent defects early in the process and creates a better production product.
By working together, developers and testers ensure end-to-end testing long before the code is written. The developers create special drivers that simulate the missing code, while the testers are mentored to simulate real-life business scenarios in pre-production environments. This enables bug detection early on in the development process, before the full product development is completed. Read this white paper to know why building a self-sufficient QA team with strong skills to support the DevOps process at all levels is essential.
