"Continuous software testing is a key competitive advantage in an environment where companies need to get their products to market faster and faster to stay relevant.

We recommend accelerating investment in quality engineering and continuous testing for Agile and DevOps teams to ensure Agile at Scale does not fail"

says Sven Euteneuer, Portfolio Manager at Sogeti Germany.

"To this end, companies should equip their feature teams with sufficient experience in quality engineering. A flexible support team should provide coaching and assistance on topics such as agile QA, automation and the provision of test environments."

The majority of companies are struggling to align their needs in terms of quality and the agile way of working. In essence, they face the challenge of getting many releases into production faster while implementing a validation process that is as fast as it is appropriate and continuous to prevent serious problems in production.

Without this balance, company performance and growth are at risk, confirms the latest Continuous Testing Report 2020 from Capgemini, which was based on a survey of 500 senior decision-makers in corporate IT.

The study emphasizes that without the complete introduction of continuous software testing, companies will not be able to meet the quality expectations of customers or their own expectations regarding release frequency in the long term. A clear disadvantage compared to more successful, agile competitors.

In addition, in many organizations, outdated systems, monolithic legacy applications and hierarchies make the application of new working methods a challenge.

"Continuous quality is critical for Agile, DevOps and digital transformation. Aside from prioritizing test automation, organizations must also remember to ensure quality in every phase of software development.

This requires modern, developer-friendly, AI-powered tools that make it easy and practical for everyone involved and every team - from the company to the technical user - to maintain continuous quality.

Teams need to overcome traditional quality hurdles using tools that enable left and right shifting and leverage AI to deliver proactive, actionable insights to maximize quality"

says Sushil Kumar, Head of DevOps and Continuous Testing Business at Broadcom.
