For a few years now DevOps teams haven’t been giving testing its proper due. Instead of fixing bugs immediately, they’ve kicked the can down the road, creating bigger and more expensive issues to fix later on. Big mistake!

Companies are doing an about face, starting to take testing seriously as it’s no longer a luxury, even for the most time-pressed organizations. Continuous Testing is the missing link for DevOps and Agile strategies . Join experts Adam Auerbach, VP of Quality and DevOps Engineer from Lincoln Financial Group, Stephen Feloney, VP of Product Management and Alex Martins, Presales Advisor from CA Technologies as they provide clear guidance for helping you launch your continuous testing journey.
