Do you wish you could reduce the amount of time that you have to live with a potentially embarrassing bug in production? How about being able to give your business ROI producing capabilities sooner?
You will learn how a growing organization has gone from a five-week release cycle with three sprints to a single two-week sprint release cycle. You will be guided in the challenges that the testing organization has had to overcome in order to test things quicker, earlier and more frequently as they change their culture to more continuous delivery. This was done not only with traditional only functional testing, but also the larger non-functional testing such as security and performance. These teams were able to raise the confidence of build candidates as they moved from 10 releases a year to 26 and the other benefits associated with a more frequent release cadence.
Key takeaways include:
- You will see how to reduce the number of Hot Fixes and patches making your organization more proactive and less reactive
- You will see how to get features in the hands of your business to provide additional capabilities
- You will spend less time on regression and troubleshooting
- You will break up larger testing efforts like performance and testing so that you can act on potential defects before the nth hour
