The Right In-Sprint Test Coverage
Even when every test passes, can you say with confidence that a system is ready to go live?
Assuring quality pre-release hinges on one question: Did you run the optimal set of tests to de-risk changes made in that iteration? Too often, testing cannot answer this question, due to poor traceability between tests, user stories, code and data. This limited traceability underpins a raft of challenges:
Test coverage is unmeasurable, or based on partially-educated guesses.
Updating tests is slow, manual, and unstructured, leading to mounting technical debt.
Shallow test assertions cannot say whether tests got the right results for the right reasons, especially at the code and database levels.
This webinar will set out how you can measure and consistently hit the right in-sprint test coverage. Curiosity’s CTO, James Walker, and Peter Elger, CEO of fourTheorem, will set out techniques for linking tests, user stories, code and data, generating targeted tests based on changes across the SDLC. You will see how:
Automated test generation can target tests based on changing user stories and code.
Tracking tests at the code and data level boosts observability and creates close traceability.
Database comparisons verify that UI and API tests produce the right results in critical back-end systems.
