It is no longer a question of “if” and “when”, but “how” to successfully Implement Test Automation in a DevOps, Cloud and Mobile World.
You have heard a lot about test automation, but why is it so important for DevOps, cloud and mobile? Companies have turned to agile software development in pursuit of faster release cycles and have embraced technologies like cloud and mobile. Yet even as they strive towards continuous integration, delivery and deployment, some companies ignore the importance of automated testing as part of this process. Fast releases and support for multiple devices increase manual testing efforts and as a result manual testing becomes a bottleneck in the release cycle. The only way to support a rapid cadence of releases on multiple devices is to automate testing.
At Optimus’ test automation breakfast event we will speak with a panel of local technology executives who will share their experiences and discuss how to Implement Test Automation in a DevOps, Cloud and Mobile World. Discussion topics will include test automation processes, tools and best practices.
