In many organizations, agile development processes are driving the pursuit of faster software releases, which has spawned a set of new practices called DevOps. DevOps stresses communications and integration between development and operations, including rapid deployment, continuous integration, and continuous delivery. Because DevOps practices require confidence that changes made to the code base will function as expected, automated testing is essential.

W12 Eliminate Regression Testing through Continuous Deployment
Matthew Heusser, Excelon Development
Wed, 05/06/2015 - 1:45pm

Most traditional teams do testing at least twice—once during development as new features are created and again during release candidate testing right before release. As a system grows, regression testing takes more and more time, making tight releases impossible—or at least risky—and adding to the burden of maintaining automated tests. Matt Heusser suggests that adopting continuous integration (with its continuous testing) and continuous delivery (with its associated production monitoring) can eliminate the need for classic regression testing.

T23 Improve Security through Continuous Testing
Jeremy Faircloth, Raytheon
Thu, 05/07/2015 - 3:00pm

Many companies develop strong software development practices that include ongoing testing throughout the development lifecycle. But they fail to account for the testing of security-related issues. This leads to security controls being tacked on to an application just before it goes to production. With security controls implemented in this manner, more security vulnerabilities are uncovered but there is less time to correct them.
