Continuous testing (or CT) is often talked about in the context of a modern DevOps software development environment. The DevOps approach has been used very successfully in product domains that involve web and mobile applications. For these applications, it is expected to have frequent updates as well as constant quality reports from the users of the applications. This environment allows for and demands that quality be quick, efficient and effective.
Typically, software updates are received by thousands (perhaps even millions) of users and the market reaction is swift. A software update that does not meet quality expectations can have a dramatic impact on the market share and brand perception of a product or a company.
