DevOps is the most widely used term in the IT industry these days. Many organizations are looking for DevOps Solutions that can unify development and operations. DevOps aims at accelerating business innovation and meet market demands in quicker time.
The basic principle of DevOps is ‘Continuous assessment’ and the 3 basic chunks of DevOps which make it work are:
- Continuous Integration and Testing: Build & Test
- Continuous Delivery and Deployment: Release & Deploy
- Continuous Operations: Operate & Monitor
These functions overlap continuously for achieving faster release of apps & improve customer experience.
Why is DevOps important?
- Because DevOps lets you deliver more quality apps more frequently
- Because it enhances customer experience with immediate feedback loops and continuous improvement
- Because it increases developer and operations efficiency
- Because DevOps provides End-to-End Agility
So how does LeanFT fit in DevOps ecosystem?
World quality report 2014-15 shows that 93% of IT Leaders use Agile & DevOps for software development projects but:
- 61% report lack of a good testing approach
- 55% can’t apply test automation at appropriate levels
- 42% don’t have right test tools to create usable test sets
This is where LeanFT fits in and tries to address the challenges faced. LeanFT unites People, Process and Information with Technology. It also helps to independently validate services and components crucial for integration testing earlier and faster in the lifecycle.
LeanFT focuses on continuous testing and continuous delivery for functional test automation and helps you shift left. LeanFT supports most of the AUT technologies, unit-testing frameworks and comes as a plugin for major IDEs like Visual studio and Eclipse.
