An Agile Revolution in the way software is tested and built

In a boundary less digital environment, businesses have to change at ’GO’, hence more reasons to remain agile and nimble. Attaining such an agile environment has been the ‘talk of the Board’ across enterprises worldwide. Understandably for many, the focus is on redefining their software development process.

For the good, the pursuit has led to embracing innovations; noticeably “Agile Testing Methodology” and “DevOps” have topped the list. Both these strategies ensure software development process deviate from the “plan-build-test-run” waterfall routine to a continuous, collaborative QA practices environment where developers, testers and customers collaborate, co-create and continually work to design and build software that is superior, stable, fast to deploy and most importantly agile.

Let’s get to the details:

Agile Testing is all about early collaboration between developers and testers so that coding and testing are performed incrementally and iteratively, building each feature until it delivers enough stability and adds quality to the product. It provides businesses an early defect detection and prevention mechanism, ensuring continuous business and customer validation at all stages and allowing for continuous risk reduction and quality improvements.

On the other end, DevOps, an extension of agile is a culture where development and operation teams work together. Note that though agile software development ensures continuous development cycle, it throws little clarity on the operations side. This means development may remain continuous yet release engineering can still be waterfall-oriented. Here’s where DevOps role comes in hand. Gartner defines DevOps as a change in IT culture, focusing on rapid IT service delivery through the adoption of agile, lean practices in the context of a system-oriented approach. DevOps emphasizes on people (and culture), and seeks to improve collaboration between operations and development teams.

How these two are benefiting businesses?

Simply put, they help you redefine, reengineer your software development process and create value for your customers, the main stakeholders of your business. However, the problem is that DevOps and Agile frameworks doesn’t come in a one-size-fits-all pattern. You need experts guiding you.
