Continuous Testing: An IBM point of view
Testing takes time and it is costly. Especially across multiple systems and platforms in the complex, hybrid cloud world. Teams that improve their test efficiency and effectiveness significantly reduce their expenses and the time it takes to get high-quality innovative solutions to end users. You can't test everything, and you can't automate everything, so it is critical to find the right subset of tests in the riskiest areas. Also key is service virtualization, which allows testing to begin as soon as a build is made, by mimicking missing dependencies. By combining test automation and service virtualization, teams test earlier, or "shift left," and continuously, so they gather feedback faster than ever.
