What Does Continuous Testing Really Mean?

Add to calendar

You may have heard the term “continuous testing” and thought it was just the DevOps flavor of the month … or that it isn’t part of DevOps … or that it isn’t for cloud-based applications. Marianne Hollier says that continuous testing means adopting the right set of automated tests along with service virtualization, which allows the team to simulate missing dependencies and to start testing earlier and more frequently. She shares how the right combination of best practices and tools can help software development and testing teams adopt a continuous testing approach. Since you can’t test everything and you can’t automate all your tests, Marianne explores how you can find the right combination across the practices of defects, test management, test automation, analytics, environments, service virtualization, and test data. Join Marianne for a discussion of the tools and solutions—including Rational Test Workbench—that enable efficient adoption of these best practices.

Marianne will make available a limited number of copies of Continuous Testing for Dummies, her book that dispels the top ten myths of continuous testing.
