Spring Shape Up: Trim Your IT "Waste" to Accelerate SDLC Velocity

servicevirtualization_testenvironments_springNow that Spring has sprung, there's no better time to revisit your new year's resolutions for  "waste" reduction.

The business demand for "more innovative software, faster" is driving a surge of interest in DevOps, Agile and Lean software development practices. However, today's testing processes are typically bogged down by weighty burdens such as the difficulty of 1) accessing complete Dev/Test environments; 2) acquiring complete, sanitized test data; and 3) configuring the behavior of the environment to enable complete test coverage. 

Fortunately, some strategic "spring cleaning" can help you make your SDLC leaner and more scalable.

If you're ready to get your SDLC in shape, watch on-demand Trim Your IT "Waste" to Accelerate SDLC Delivery webinar, which was recently hosted by Parasoft and Skytap. You'll learn strategies for helping DevOps and Test make your SDLC leaner and more scalable, including how to: 

  • Provide teams with on-demand access to "just-in-time environments" 

  • Empower testers to independently access and configure test environments for earlier, more thorough testing 

  • Determine how much testing is required to mitigate business risks

  • Apply testing in a way that promotes SDLC automation and acceleration

Some great follow-up questions were asked by those watching the webinar live, including...

  • How can I integrate service virtualization configuration into my DevOps process?

  • When building or copying environments, how do you determine whether to use a service virtualization virtual asset?
  • Can I manage environments in the same way as by using a cloud infrastructure service like AWS?
