F14-11/4: Evolving from Automated to Continuous with Service Virtualization

Track/s: Strategy

“Accelerate the SDLC” has become a popular mantra for software development across virtually all industries now that software is increasingly serving as the interface to the business. This is driving, among other things, the push towards DevOps and Continuous Delivery. Yet, considering that software testing has long been a thorn in the side of the development process, it’s unreasonable to expect that attempts to speed up the process with more automation will achieve the desired results. If you fail to address the inefficiencies of the testing process, the elephant in the room, you’re likely to just end up releasing bugs into the wild at an unprecedented pace.

To truly accelerate software delivery without exposing the business to increased risk, a solid, continuous quality process is essential. This session will begin by explaining why a new perspective on “test” is required for a modern SDLC, outline the 4 “must-haves” for evolving the SDLC from automated to continuous, then shift to an in-depth look at how one of these “must-haves”—access to a complete test environment—can be achieved through service virtualization’s simulated test environments.
