Why Continuous Testing?
Continuous testing is about incorporating a testing mentality at every stage in the software development lifecycle.
The ability to verify the quality of software after each code change in an automated way in the CI process offers great benefits for all QA testing and DevOps practitioners and improves efficiencies across the entire DevOps pipeline.
Implementing continuous testing isn’t easy. If you’re not there yet, don’t worry. According to a recent survey, 43% of organizations haven’t adopted DevOps yet.
With integrations built for nearly every testing framework, unparalleled quick-view visual analytics, and built into all major CI platforms, Perfecto has the tools to help ease your transition to a successful continuous testing strategy.
