VectorCAST for DevOps Testing
To stay competitive in today’s software driven world, organizations must find new ways of reducing the delivery time of new software features and functionality while still meeting quality objectives. These competitive pressures require efficient and more effective software testing capabilities.
What is DevOps Testing
In 2009 Patrick Debois coined the term DevOps (“development” and “operations”) as a way of describing a collaborative method of developing and deploying software. DevOps stresses communication, collaboration, and integration between software developers, QA, and IT operation professionals.
DevOps Testing is an extension of Agile Test Driven Development methodologies which includes continuous integration, continuous delivery, and rapid deployment practices. The goal of DevOps Testing is to enable better collaboration and improve communication. Because DevOps Testing requires confidence that code changes will function as expected; automated testing is an essential component to ensure overall quality. Key benefits delivered through DevOps Testing are:
- Improved Quality
- Faster Time to Market
- Optimized Infrastructure
- Minimized Risk
- Shortened Release Cycles
- Lowered Costs
VectorCAST for Correct, Complete, and Repeatable Testing
In order to deliver high quality software faster and reliably, testing must be correct, complete and repeatable. VectorCAST is a robust platform for automated embedded software testing that helps organizations accelerate product development and deployment through continuous integration and continuous delivery.
The Functional and Unit Testing capabilities of VectorCAST help engineers prove that the application they are testing performs correctly according to its requirements and Code Coverage Analysis ensures that testing is complete across all forms of testing. Lastly, testing must be continuous and repeatable. If tests are fragile or require manual analysis of results, they will not be used and will provide no value.
