CI/CD: The Solution TO High-Cost Quality

Testing processes have evolved drastically over the past 40 years. As software becomes more complex, traditional software development processes are beginning to fall apart. Manual testing by individuals is forcing organizations to choose between cost, user experience and time-to-market.

Luckily, there’s an answer. Continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) are key practices in modern software development processes. CI and CD work together to ensure successful development operations. Automating build, integration and testing processes can help you optimize your development pipeline to weed out bugs early on and fix them as quickly as possible at a lower cost to your business.

In this guide, we’ll talk about the real cost of quality and the many ways in which automated testing can drive those costs down. We’ll also dive into some key testing strategies, including how to decide what to test, who should be in charge of testing, and the frequency of testing.
