Think back just 5 years ago. In 2014… • The seminal DevOps book—Gene Kim’s The Phoenix Project—was one year old • Gartner predicted that 25% of Global 2000 enterprises would adopt DevOps to some extent by 20161 • "Continuous Testing” just started appearing in industry publications and conferences2 • Many of today’s popular test frameworks were brand new—or not yet released • The term “microservices” was just entering our lexicon • QC/UFT and ALM were still sold by HP (not even HPE yet) • Only 30% of enterprise software testing was performed fully “in house”3 • There was no GDPR restricting the use of production data for software testing • Packaged apps were typically updated on an annual or semi-annual basis and modern platforms like SAP S/4HANA and Salesforce Lightning hadn’t even been announced Times have changed—a lot. If the way that you’re testing hasn’t already transformed dramatically, it will soon. And the pace and scope of disruption will continue to escalate throughout the fo

Let’s face it. Businesses don’t want—or need—perfect software. They want to deliver new, businessdifferentiating software as soon as possible. To enable this, we (Development and Testing teams) need fast feedback on whether the latest innovations will work as expected or crash and burn in production. We also need to know if these changes somehow broke the core functionality that the customer base—and thus the business—depends upon. This is where Continuous Testing comes in. Continuous Testing is the process of executing automated tests as part of the software delivery pipeline in order to obtain feedback on the business risks associated with a software release candidate as rapidly as possible.

Countless QA teams continue using subpar testing tools because they can’t stand the thought of migrating thousands of test artifacts or training testers on an entirely new platform. Many would prefer the status quo of using their current toolset because they believe that a migration will be painful, or that it will slow them down. But there’s a problem with that logic: The longer they wait, the more obsolete their current toolset becomes, and the further removed QA becomes from the rest of the software development lifecycle — which often means that testing lags behind, remaining a roadblock on the agile transformation journey. This white paper will cover: o The true cost of using inadequate legacy tools, and why migrating now is better than waiting o Six steps to make migration as painless as possible for your QA and development teams o How the entire SDLC benefits from a flexible toolset that integrates quality into agile processes

In today’s era of digital transformation, time-to-market is the new name of the game, and DevOps is changing the way software is built. As developers have taken on a much larger role in the software development lifecycle, including developing secure code, building containers and ensuring quality, security cannot be separated from DevOps and engineering. Unfortunately, traditional software security testing tools have operated in isolation and have forced developers to change the way they work. Checkmarx, however, has developed a more agile and responsive solution: Checkmarx’ Software Exposure Platform. Taking a holistic, platform-centric approach, the platform builds security in from the beginning, supporting all stages of the software development lifecycle, allowing enterprises to deliver secure software at the speed of DevOps while mitigating their business risk.

Continuous testing is the practice of testing across every activity in the SDLC to uncover and fix unexpected behaviors as soon as they are injected. Continuous testing is the embedding of testing as a fundamental and ongoing aspect of every activity through the application lifecycle, from requirements through production, to ensure the business value is being achieved as expected. As the pace of business continues to quicken, companies are starting to recognize that to stay competitive the process of developing and releasing software needs to change. Release cadence has greatly accelerated. There is no occasion anymore for a six- to 18-month find-and-fix turnaround in which the customer will find the delay acceptable. Things need to move faster, and they need to be ready and perfect faster. Download this whitepaper to find out how CA Technologies can help with your Continuous Testing.

Business applications have become the battleground for customer loyalty. To compete, IT organizations are under pressure to deliver applications faster and with higher quality. Continuous Delivery (CD) of code offers a solution. CD may be paired with DevOps, Agile and other methodologies. However, QA and testing can be an obstacle to CD’s rapid development and deployment of high quality code. Testers and developers must engage in Continuous Testing, continuously testing software for performance, quality and user experience as it’s being developed. Continuous Testing is not a push button process, though. It requires a comprehensive approach. This paper outlines the common challenges to Continuous Testing and highlights results from real users who have used technology to get to succeed with the Continuous Testing process.

During NSS Labs’ 2018 Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Group Test, CylancePROTECT® and CylanceOPTICS™ v2.0.1450 failed to initiate part of the CylanceOPTICS engine, which primarily impacted the exploit and blended threats test categories. This affected the Cylance® position on the Security Value Map (SVM)™. After working closely with NSS, Cylance rolled out a new version of its software (v2.2.1011) for CylanceOPTICS. Cylance submitted this updated product for follow-on testing using the AEP Test Methodology v2.0, the same methodology used in the AEP Group Test. The product improved its Block Rate by 6.9% and its Additional Detection Rate by 0.2%. Learn more about the results in the NSS Labs testing report.

If you work in DevOps or software QA, you likely already know why automated software testing is essential for quality control to keep pace with continuous delivery. Automated testing delivers faster results and more thorough coverage, and enables shift-left testing for earlier detection of bugs. Yet the issue of how to approach automated testing remains difficult for many QA teams to solve. A range of obstacles makes it challenging to begin automating software tests, or to increase the extent of test automation beyond the basics.

Testing is critical to the success of any application. In fact, your software is only as good as the testing team behind it and their ability to identify bugs before they find their way into production. Practically speaking, that means that building and nurturing an effective testing team is mission critical. But, of course, doing so is a lot easier said than done. That's because to be successful, today’s testing teams need to be cross-functional, efficient, and focused on the right things. They also have to be fully bought in and worthy of deep trust. As a result, finding the right candidates can be a challenge, so you have to get creative. Not only that, to attract and retain the best talent, you need to keep them motivated by giving them ample opportunities to learn and advance their career, while not weighing them down with the burden of time-consuming and unnecessary administrative tasks. Instead, you want to equip your team with the right tools to enable and empower them.

In a case of “if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it,” some software project failures occur because of a lack of traceability — that is, an incomplete record of documentation around software quality assurance efforts. The lack of traceability has a significant impact on QA testing effectiveness and meeting strategic goals. However, with optimal traceability, testing becomes more efficient and enables collaboration throughout the software development lifecycle, as well as between product owners and organization leaders.

Data. It seems to be everywhere today and yet we can never get enough of it. But as it turns out, a lack of data isn’t our problem -- our problem is the difficulty piecing together, understanding and finding the story in all the data that’s in front of us. In software testing in particular, the need for consolidated, meaningful test metrics has never been higher. As both the pace of development and the cost of delivering poor quality software increase, we need these metrics to help us test smarter, better and faster. Fortunately, business intelligence now exists to make this goal a reality. The analytics these tools provide can help drive efficient and effective testing by providing teams with insight on everything from testing quality and coverage to velocity and more. And this knowledge can position the QA team as trusted experts to advise the entire software development team on steps that can ensure a better quality end result.
