Continuous Testing

Continuous testing helps you build better apps, faster.

What is Continuous Testing?

Continuous testing is the practice of integrating testing as a fundamental and ongoing aspect of every activity though the software delivery cycle. Continuous testing allows tests to be automatically created and executed so that defects can be identified and corrected as soon as possible.

Continuous testing starts in the planning phase with automated test case design, directly mapped to application requirements. It continues into the development phase, where test environments can be emulated using service virtualization and test data is created, masked and sub-setted with test data management. Test execution is fully automated with continuous testing and feedback loops are established so that operational data can be used to inform future test case design.

Forrester TEI Study on Continuous Testing

Findings from the recent Forrester Total Economic Impact (TEI) study on Continuous Testing demonstrate how several enterprise companies reap over $19M in net present value by adopting continuous testing over a three-year period. Examine how these companies:

  • Improve development team productivity from cutting down unplanned work by 28%, to spending 50% less time on test case design.
  • Reduce effort test engineers devote to test case automation and execution by 80%, while avoiding nearly $13M in costly testing environment infrastructure.
  • Use cloud-based performance testing to avert $2M in costly downtime, and trim annual operating costs in server time by over $1M.
  • Enjoy 40% release management productivity improvements, and minimize cut-over calls in critical code deployments from 8 hours to ½ hour.
