Why Continuous Testing Is The Best Thing That
Happened to Digital Transformation
Change has always been at the center of mankinds
evolution, mapping the journey since the
primitive era to this digital age. Continuous
experimentation, trials and errors, continuous
improvement and integration into everyday life,
and then continuous distribution of the
experimented, adapted technology has led us to
where we stand today. From simply surviving on
necessities to building a life of luxury and
convenience, mankind has surely come a long way.
The extent to which we have evolved, the distance
that we have traversed, has brought us to the
point of advancement where we exist physically
but survive digitally. Evolution has been the
only constant over the centuries of our
existence. But what makes digital transformation
so revolutionizing is its capability of bridging
the difference between physical and digital. When
a snake sheds its skin, it changes when a
caterpillar becomes a butterfly, it transforms.
Digital transformation is metamorphosizing every
industry into a winged butterfly. But, if done
wrong, youll only have a really fast caterpillar
who may complete the designated tasks much
faster, but at the cost of quality and
efficiency. This is where, continuous testing
takes the reins to ensure that your
organization truly transforms into an enterprise
capable of delivering excellent customer
satisfaction rapidly. Continuous testing is the
enzyme that catalyzes digital transformation
through critical supervision. Jeff Bezos said,
In todays era of volatility, there is no other
way but to re-invent. The only sustainable
advantage you can have over others is agility,
thats it. Because nothing else is sustainable,
everything else you create, somebody else will
replicate. While it is true that speed is
indispensable to stay competitive, it is also a
fact that customers today value quality more than
anything else. Thus, to derive the desired
customer satisfaction levels, quality should be
the driving strategy the fuel to every digital
initiative wagon for the modern enterprises.

The adoption of Agile and DevOps methodologies at
the cost of quality will ultimately backfire,
resulting in an organization that churns out
failures at a really fast pace. Continuous
testing keeps the quality in check while
maintaining the required speed and
effectiveness. Will digital disruption cause you
to evolve or perish? It is not the strongest of
the species that survives, nor the most
intelligent that survives. It is the one that is
the most adaptable to change.??Charles
Darwin Digital transformation is disruptive in
nature. The scale and scope at which digital
transformation affects an organization or
industry needs proper change management strategy
centered on business, technology, processes, and
people. Adaptability among these four aspects
forms the foundation of digital transformation
success. As organizations are optimizing their
SDLC with a combined Agile and DevOps approach,
they often tend to ignore the most critical
aspect Quality Assurance and Testing. With
continuous testing, not only can the
organizations survive the most disruptive of
innovations, but also make sure that they
leverage the disruption to their benefit.
Continuous testing strategy guarantees that agile
and DevOps do not cost an organization the
quality of their products and services.

What is needed for a successful continuous
testing strategy? In continuous testing, there
is no shifting left or right. Testing has to be
continuous, from the beginning, and at every step
of each sprint. In order to be in tandem with the
speed of AgileDevOps SDLC, continuous testing
needs the support of automation. However,
everything should not be automated. The right mix
of manual and automated testing performed
continuously is required. To improve the test
coverage and spectrum of continuous testing
approach, cloud and automation play a key role.
While automation brings in speed, cloud enables
scalability and cost effectiveness. Continuous
testing strategy mandates some extent of
micromanaging the organizational culture,
processes, and people to align everything for
completing the bigger picture of digital
transformation. As organizations are relying on
DevOps and Agile methodologies to empower the
CI/CD pipeline, they must also integrate
continuous testing into the loop to facilitate
timely fulfillment. The tight sprint schedules
and time constraint no longer remain a concern
when testing is continuous and automated. Continu
ous testing with the right amount of automation
checks a software for functional as well as
non-functional aspects as a sprint progresses,
thus making sure that only quality product is
delivered to the end users. Read Full Blog at
