Continuous Testing Report

The Continuous Testing Report, a new study from Capgemini and Sogeti, records 1 in 2 firms deploying new software builds daily. But a staggering 60% end up with gaps in software test-case coverage.

The Continuous Testing Report 2019 (read the press release here) tracks a transformation in software testing. 

The study by Capgemini and Sogeti, in collaboration with Broadcom Inc.’s Enterprise Software Division, is based on 500 interviews with senior-level IT executives from large and medium-sized companies (over 1,000 employees) in industries including financial services, high tech, healthcare, and life sciences, telecommunications, media and entertainment, and manufacturing.

According to the report, the practice of Continuous Testing – the process of fast and efficient validation of software releases in agile developments through highly automated tests – is gaining ground in large enterprises, with almost a third of IT executives (32%) stating that their IT departments had ‘fully embraced Continuous Testing’. However, with 58% of enterprises surveyed deploying a new build daily (and 26% at least hourly), the report highlights that companies must work to improve their continuous testing effectiveness by streamlining their test environment within an agile development ecosystem.

Across industries, firms are adopting Agile and DevOps with continuous integration and deployment to reorganize software development. But quality assurance is one of the stickiest bottlenecks in this value chain. As corporate IT aligns with demands for speed to market and seamless customer experience, CIOs must focus on quality at speed.

The Continous Testing Report 2019 is a great place to track this transformation in software testing, in the age of DevOps and automation.
