New approach, same barriers?
perennial challenges to in-sprint test automation
Rigorously testing fast-changing, fast-growing systems within ever-shorter iterations demands that every moment is spent testing new functionality.
Automated test execution is necessary to execute the number of tests required today, but introduces a raft of processes that themselves need automating.
Test data bottlenecks present one of the greatest barriers to in-sprint testing today, calling for a truly on demand approach to test data allocation.
Manual maintenance is the greatest barrier to Continuous Testing. It must be automated whenever a change request or new user story arrives.
accurately develop and test continuously in-sprint
Continuous Testing has become an ideal for organizations striving to build and deliver ever-more complex systems, in ever-shorter iterations. This eBook considers the core principles of Continuous Testing, and what it means in practice to fulfil them. It begins by considering what Continuous Testing is in its essence, and common barriers to its adoption. An alternative approach to designing, building, and testing systems is then set out, arguing that it both fulfils the core principles of Continuous Testing, and can remove the perennial blockers to its adoption.
