The Way Forward for Continuous Integration & Continuous Delivery (CI/CD)

The Way Forward for Continuous Integration & Continuous Delivery (CI/CD)

Software testing is done to evaluate and verify the software product or application against what it is supposed to do. In today’s time of agile software development environment, testing team’s working model need to meet with Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery/Deployment need. To gain momentum, software testing team automates the provisioning of test environments and make the testing process manageable.

Recently our software testers were hired to test a logistics industry application with CI/CD approach. Here our software testers need to continuously test releases every sprint, functions both minor or major updates. As most of the functions are standardized, client requirement to our QA Testing team was to set up a strategic test automation suite that address business logic and the technical difficulties. Inline to this requirement, our QA team suggested the process of Continuous Testing that should be integrated into the delivery pipeline using tools like Jenkins.

As per plan, we worked with the DevOps development team to set up automated tests (maybe gate test) as criteria to promote from development to test, also worked to set up automated build and deploy processes. By loading predefined quality assurance (QA) scripts to automated tools and testing all development stages we identified bugs as they happen and support developers to fix the bugs as part of their regular development work. This continuous CI/CD testing approach ensures the pipeline is efficient even while introducing more validation into the process from start to finish.
