Searching Testing in DevOps world
By Embracing DevOps, the evolution continues to embrace new technology and to push new software releases to production. The time to market is accelerated that has resulted in improvement of overall customer experience. However, just like any other evolution, this is equally challenging both in terms of technology as well as culturally. Although the name suggests only development and operations are the key areas, testing is equally affected here. With each experience and each project, there are new obstacles that come in front of teams. Embracing DevOps doesn’t mean all that has be done and achieved goes waste and we have to do everything from start. Biggest challenge is to apply it keeping exiting organizational structure as-is. This can be possible only when the communication and collaboration between all IT teams, dev, QA and ops is improved. The old mindset of running organizations saw developers, testers and operations engineer functioned as three teams, each having his own responsibilities and challenges. They just function as distinct teams with few managers that ensure to keep them connected. With DevOps, the onus falls on testers to see if they can remain connected and unified under DevOps Flag. This paper is my journey to answer this question and explain the approach adopted in my organization.
