Register now for the Continuous Testing Virtual Summit - a live broadcast accelerating you toward software developed quickly… but deployed with quality.
Air travel is one of the safest means of transportation for a reason. Well, a few reasons* actually – but a major reason is the reliability of the planes themselves. An average commercial jet’s lifespan is in the neighborhood of 20-30 years, or 35,000 pressurization cycles. That translates to approximately five flights per day, every day of the year, for 20 years. And you think your Honda is reliable!
That type of reliability is in large part thanks to a meticulous and tremendously thorough testing practice that happens even before an aircraft’s first test flight. Airlines can’t afford to compromise quality when they have billions of dollars, hundreds of lives ,and their reputation and brand at stake.
While the stakes may not be quite as high for your software or applications, would they stand up to the same standards of quality and reliability? Probably not.
The fact is that due to the pressure many of us face to get applications into market quickly, compromises are made. Typically these compromises come because legacy testing methods can’t keep pace with the rate of change in the development organization. Organizations like yours are forced to test less thoroughly than you’d like – which results in less quality than you (or your customers) would like.
But that doesn’t have to be the case. With Continuous Testing, you can test software early and often – allowing you to have both quality and rapid time-to-market. As outlined in the new novel “The Kitty Hawk Venture”, continuous testing can help your DevOps and Agile development practices truly take flight.
If you are interested to learn more about Continuous Testing, join us for CA Technologies’ second Continuous Testing Virtual Summit on Friday July 13th. You will hear the brightest minds in DevOps, Continuous Delivery and Continuous Testing provide their perspective and best practices for getting Continuous Testing off the ground.
