With the rapid rise of digital transformation disrupting business models to deliver better customer experience, Automation and DevOps are becoming almost mandatory to facilitate meeting this challenge.
As the pressure grows for accelerated time to market, empowered productivity, cost savings, and enhanced resource management, automation first appeared to be the standalone solution. The demand for agility and speedy delivery drove the need to do things faster, positioning automation as the strategy to achieve this goal. However, with the complexity of testing and remaining responsive to the rapid competitive pressures in the marketplace, a host of new challenges were revealed. How do you create complex test environments dynamically? How to achieve required test coverage? How do you maintain momentum and improve quality and your internal SLA?
Addressing these questions, new insights in best practices were identified and DevOps strategies implemented ad hoc. Without a DevOps approach, the cycle time from development to release would be so long that it would increasingly fall behind the competition and lose out in the marketplace. However, DevOps is heavily dependent on automation to deliver at faster speeds, greater accuracy, consistency, reliability and increase the number of deliveries.
Companies need to take a unified approach to automation and DevOps that spans the technology lifecycle, encompassing lab environments, validation test suites and assurance systems.
