Title: Why is the IT Test Environment Management strategy is necessary


1
Why is the IT
Test Environment Management strategy necessary?

2
  • You cannot release any software product without
    testing it thoroughly. Testing is one of the most
    essential parts of the software development
    process.
  • Some of the most popular testing which all
    organizations focus on are unit testing and
    acceptance testing.
  • However, one particular type of testing that most
    organizations fail to do is practical system
    testing in which all parts are put together to
    check their interactions.
  • Most of the time, the main reason organizations
    fail to do so is the lack of an IT test
    environment.
  • Just having an IT test environment is not enough,
    you also need to have a superlative IT test
    environment management strategy to manage all IT
    environments thoroughly and develop interactive
    environments for different teams to communicate
    and allocate resources freely.

  • Why do we lack good testing environments?
  • There are primarily two reasons why it is
    difficult for organizations to establish good
    testing environments
  • The first objective of any organization is to
    develop high-quality and the right solution for
    users.
  • In addition to that, organizations strive hard to
    balance the cost of development and the cost of
    operations. With such goals, it is very difficult
    to achieve cost minimisation.
  • The second reason is that it is not easy to
    create and maintain environments as it takes a
    lot of time and effort. When you have multiple
    environments, the coordination can cost you a
    little more.
  • How to address this issue?
  • The traditional way is to establish one or
    multiple test environments which are smaller
    versions of production. However, it is not an
    effective solution, but we do it due to many
    reasons.

  • There is a new way we can choose. Here, we will
    create a production environment and run the
    tests. Developers will automate the system in a
    manner that an environment can be created with a
    button click to execute the test suite.
  • This is the most effective way compared to the
    traditional approach we have discussed. However,
    there are some issues we need to address to
    achieve this goal.
  • How to create better testing environments?
  • First and foremost thing is to get all the tools
    necessary for test environment management. There
    are many such tools available in the market.
  • Also, you need to understand how to use those
    tools to achieve objectives. Identify all types
    of capabilities you want while setting up an
    environment and have tools to support that.

  • What Makes for a Good Testing Environment?
  • Though there are many tools that can help you to
    manage your test environments, you might not be
    able to control these tools and components.
  • Here, a lean and carefully designed IT test
    environment management strategy can help you to
    wrangle all these tools and components and manage
    their use and deployment.
  • Which components will you need for good test
    environment management?
  • Testability
  • Nowadays, you cannot find software that was not
    tested thoroughly. It has become a part of the
    software development process. No matter which
    testing methodologies you use, one thing is
    certain there will be tests.
  • When you develop a system infrastructure, you
    also need to ensure that the infrastructure is
    also testable before it is deployed. It means,
    the test environment must be testable.

  • Configuration Management
  • For automated releases, it is important to have
    good configuration management. It will help to
    ensure that all environments are consistent and
    regular once they are configured and coded.
  • Release Management
  • Release management is also as important as
    production release. To get insights about what to
    test, you need to know about features and fixes
    contained in a release. Here, you can do it by
    integrating change management systems, source
    control tools and release process.
  • Networks
  • You cannot miss network configuration as it will
    allow us to not customise all deployed
    environments. Different networks must be
    configured to ensure minimal customization.

7
  • Load and Volume Testing
  • Testing load and performance of software, you
    will need a transaction volume similar to
    production.
  • It is easy to do in an ordinary web application,
    but very difficult for any IoT device. You need
    to plan your IT test environment management
    strategy in advance to address this concern.
  • Conclusion
  • The IT test environment management strategy is a
    must for all modern IT organizations as it allows
    proper allocation of resources and smooth
    communication between different teams to have the
    best quality software product with timely
    delivery.
