Continuous Validation Solution
The introduction of Agile development process and DevOps infrastructure has accelerated development build-test-deploy cycle to days or to hours or to minutes and given birth to continuous validation. Continuous validation refers to the practice of beginning testing side by side with development, shortening the long test cycles, to focus on problem-prevention rather than detection, and encouraging the culture of 'fail early and fail often.' This is different from orthodox validation, which is a serial process that constitutes a distinct phase right after development and well before the feature is promoted to end-users.
To achieve continuous validation, it is fundamental to automate each small doings in the process. The illustration below presents the common challenges that we come across while automating various aspects of validation and how Infosys solution effectively addresses them.
