Recently I watched a very interesting documentary about what it takes to keep an airport operational; from making meals, cleaning the aircraft, fueling the aircraft to moving millions of passengers every year with safety and comfort. It is quite remarkable how many tasks are occurring behind-the-scenes that, as a passenger, we never even think about. For example, nearly every major airport has miles of fuel lines buried below the terminals and tarmacs pumping millions of gallons of...

What it Really Means to ‘Shift Left’ Much of the new wisdom surrounding the improvement of software testing scenarios focuses on the idea of Shift-Left, in which the work of testing code is shifted back toward the earliest phases of the software development lifecycle (SDLC), and starts at check-in. But with velocity and speed of the modern app economy, this concept of ‘extreme shift left’ testing is coming of age. This is quite a departure...

  Test Center of Excellence (CoE) face a dilemma today. Testing processes haven’t kept up with Agile and continuous software delivery trends. Instead of facilitating speed, testing has become a real bottleneck – forcing a tough tradeoff between speed and quality. Software test automation has never been more important. We recently discussed CA’s vision of a Center of Developer Excellence (CoDE), which addresses the current disconnect between continuous software delivery trends and testing practices. In today’s blog, we show you how...

Model-Based Testing 101 Model-based testing (or MBT) has recently emerged as a popular approach to transforming and optimizing application testing.  MBT offers significant benefits such as improvement of test coverage, reduction of testing effort and improvement of quality. MBT includes a rich variety of techniques and capabilities that may appear overwhelming to initial adopters. My customers often ask me how to get started with the basics of MBT and how to gradually improve their maturity and capabilities. I am...

In-Sprint Test Automation Practices in Motion So, you’ve decided on adopting In-Sprint Test Automation practices. Now what? In a previous blog we saw the benefits of integrating test steps, automation and data into a singular model. We also saw how automated test scripts are created my integrating code snippets directly into a visual diagram. By creating a model at the beginning of a sprint cycle, testing can occur faster and earlier. But how does this work in...

Demystifying Industry Buzzwords: Test-Driven Development (TDD) vs. BDD vs. ATDD Test-Driven Development (TDD) is just one of many buzzwords in the industry right now. And so it’s understandable that people can get confused. Test-Driven Development (TDD) Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) Acceptance Test–Driven Development (ATDD) DevOps DevSecOps Continuous Testing Model-Based Testing (MBT) The list goes on. However, make no mistake. These practices and methodologies seek to answer a straightforward question. How can we develop “better” software? In this...
