Autonomous Testing - Journey Beyond Continuous Testing
Continuous Testing has been employed for some time now, but has it reached its limit in terms of effectiveness? Most companies still report that testing is still a bottleneck and not fully integrated into the DevOps cycle. The time it takes to code and maintain tests and generate test data are the primary reason that continuous testing has not been fully effective. With autonomous testing you get zero-touch test case creation and coding, lights-out test execution, and automatic impact analysis with self-healing tests. This approach requires a fundamental shift away from traditional human powered test case creation and execution. In Autonomous testing, the system is application aware and updates scripts automatically. By leveraging autonomous testing, enterprises will be able to remove testing as the DevOps bottleneck, achieve integrated quality in the DevOps process, speeding software delivery with higher quality and at a lower cost.
