As organizations try to meet faster delivery schedules and improve collaboration between development and operations, DevOps has become a hot topic. And with Apple, Google and Microsoft making it easier for Dev and Ops to build and deploy cross-platform apps, there is more to test in less time. The question then arises, where does testing fit in such a DevOps strategy? Nikhil Kaul gives an overview of recent trends in DevOps, specifically changes that have taken place in the testing industry over the past year. He explores why testing is becoming more important than ever and how testing can facilitate the transformation to DevOps. Finally, Nikhil touches upon ways to build a scalable testing framework and important reusability practices that can be applied—from development and test to operations—to reduce post-deployment debugging time.
