Testing is a necessary evil, even for Agile development. Organizations adopting Agile need to act now: testing leadership, skills, practices, and automation must move to the forefront of development. Big, centralized centres of excellence (COEs) are a thing of the past; testers must work with development teams on day-to-day project activities. Practices such as test-driven development (TDD), enforced alignment of business requirements, and increased use of automated testing are becoming essential to successful, high-quality Agile development. All of this represents a massive change, not just for testing and testers, but also for development and deployment organizations.
By 2016, DevOps will evolve from a niche strategy employed by large cloud providers to a mainstream strategy employed by 25 percent of Global 2000 organizations."Gartner also believes that, "Rather than being a market per se, DevOps is a philosophy, a cultural shift that merges operations with development and demands a linked tool chain of technologies to facilitate collaborative change."
Enterprises now deploy or update huge lines of code everyday across hundreds of environments, aiming to get to market faster than ever before. Sometimes this is done as frequently as every 15 minutes, to ensure that their applications are always current. This requires testing to be orchestrated seamlessly across development, and production environments with continuous feedback loops via continuous testing. This has, thus, led to the evolution of DevOps. DevOps is a mind-set and an agent of cultural change, bringing contributors from operations and development into a seamless, ongoing, agile process. DevOps is not easy. It requires perfect collaboration, orchestration and state-of-the-art methods and tools.
Test Data Management
There is a constant and increasing demand to cater to higher test data volumes, encompassing diverse data types, with the application landscape distributed geographically. These factors have made Test Data Management services (TDM services) an important component to ensure reliability and quality for enterprise class software applications. TDM services refer to an organized way to manage and control test data in various test environments.
With growing data volume, increasing data security breaches, and complex application-performance issues, most enterprises today face significant data management challenges. Keeping inactive data online not only creates security risk but also increases infrastructure and database cost. Some enterprises are literally throwing away data to minimize complexity and lower these costs. Although there are several better options available to control data growth, data archiving is the best long-term solution to significantly improve application performance and reduce the cost of servers and storage. Data archiving supports many other requirements, including retiring applications, managing test data, improving database manageability, performing data sharing, and ensuring regulatory compliance. Application development professionals and information architects should consider building an enterprise-wide data archiving strategy for large databases and applications.
Service virtualization and testing (SVT) solutions provide developers and testers with tools to quickly simulate the services of a complex production environment, mainly for automating regression, integration, and performance tests. In doing so, SVT enables companies to define complex test scenarios, provision more consistent production-like test labs more quickly, and test in fast-paced Agile environments to improve testing speed and product quality." - Forrester
Why Service virtualization and testing?
In the traditional approach to testing, teams provided components they were responsible for, which were then assembled, and tested. In today's rapid development cycles, this wait (read delay) can prove to be disastrous. Most organizations today face an undeniable need for systems and processes that can mimic and recreate the behaviour of a production environment.
Service Virtualization is a method that emulates the behaviour of specific applications in a heterogeneous environment. A synchronized application development and testing environment is the need of the hour. Application virtualization testing ensures that the testing environment provides a much needed transparency between the two, as also enables parallel testing of different components.
