    Case Study
    Intermediate

    The key objectives of any organization is to provide / derive value from the products / services they offer. To achieve this, they need to be able to deliver their offerings in the quickest time possible, and of good quality!

    In such a fast moving environment, CI (Continuous Integration) and CD (Continuous Delivery) are now a necessity and not a luxury!

    There are various practices that organizations need to implement to enable CD. Changes in requirements (a reality in all projects) needs to be managed better. Along with this, processes and practices need to be tuned based on the team capability, skills and distribution.

    Testing (automation) is one of the important practices that needs to be setup correctly for CD to be successful. But, this is tricky and requires a lot of discipline, rigor and hard work by all the team members involved the product delivery.

    All the challenges faced in smaller organizations get amplified when it comes to Enterprises. There are various reasons to this - but most common reasons are - scale, complexity of the domain, complexity of the integrations (to internal / external system), involvement of various partners / vendors, long product life-cycles, etc.

    In such situations, the Testing complexity and challenges also increase exponentially!

    Learn, via a case study of an Enterprise, a large Bank, the Testing approach required to take them on the journey to achieving CD.

    How you think defines how you act.  Agile is more of a people practice than huge technical methodology. 

    In traditional setup with waterfall methodology where each phase of the projects are serially aligned and more often than not take longer, testing is slow paced and quite reactionary. When moving to an agile setup, it requires a paradigm shift in the mindset. 

    Its important to open our minds towards not only learning more technical but also soft skills and inspire our teams to do so too. Moving from competition to collaboration (with developers), moving from mere bug finding to bug investigation, moving to exploratory testing.

    Emphasis is laid on team members and interactions instead of processes and tools. The idea is to encourage testers to think more about Agile as mentioned in Agile Manifesto than getting blindly into agile projects.
