An effective way to improve quality assurance (QA) is to “fail fast.” The purpose of failing fast is to catch and fix a bug as close to its origin as possible, before it makes its way further down the release pipeline. Because it’s much easier and less costly to fix an error in the context of which it was created, it’s always preferable for an error not to change hands. The traditional waterfall approach to software development does not support the objective of failing fast, as software testing is postponed until the final stages of a release. As such, another approach to QA is required. Enter Continuous Testing.
To keep up with the ever-increasing customer expectations to digital products and services, software providers are under pressure to be more and more thorough in their quality assurance of products. Learn how Continuous Testing can support those efforts.
