Despite agile practices in many companies today, there are still bottlenecks within the release cycle that severely impede the ability of companies to deliver more value to their customers. In a recent survey by Computing Research, DevOps pros stated that 63% of delays were coming from Test/QA stage of the cycle.
Again and again, we hear from our customers that they are missing the mark on continuous delivery because they still have manual testing silos, manual release processes and a disconnected DevOps toolchain.
It is evident that companies cannot achieve continuous delivery if they do not modernize their testing and release practices, and CA solutions are purpose-built to solve these bottlenecks. We enable teams to generate test scripts from requirements, simulate test environments anywhere, access robust test data when it’s needed and execute performance and security testing early and often. We orchestrate continuous “everything”—development, testing, release and improvement — with robust integrations to open source, commercial and home grown solutions across the DevOps toolchain, including planning, CI, testing and deployment tools.
