Parasoft announces the release of Continuous Testing (ISBN 978-1494859756). The book focuses on how Continuous Testing provides a real-time, objective assessment of the business risks associated with applications under development. Applied uniformly, Continuous Testing allows both business and technical managers to make better trade-off decisions between release scope, time, and quality.
“Proper testing throughout the lifecycle helps mitigate catastrophic software failures caused by defect in production," stated Theresa Lanowitz, Founder and Analyst for voke,inc. "Testers are the brand protectors of an organization and play a critical role in helping to deliver positive business outcomes enabled through technology. “
This book is written for business executives and development practitioners who need to achieve the optimal balance between speed and quality with software that interfaces with customers... and ultimately revenue. It provides a technical perspective on how to accelerate the SDLC and release with confidence. Readers will learn how Continuous Testing can help their organization answer the following questions at the time of the critical “go / no-go” decision for a software release candidate:
- Are we done testing?
- Does the release candidate achieve expected quality standards?
- What are the quantifiable risks associated with the release candidate?
- How confident are we that we won't end up in the news for software failures?
"Continuous Testing is NOT simply more automation," asserted Wayne Ariola, Parasoft Chief Strategy Officer. "Rather, it's the reassessment of software quality practices—driven by an organization's cost of quality and balanced for speed and agility. Ultimately, Continuous Testing can provide a quantitative assessment of risk and produce actionable tasks that will help mitigate these risks before progressing to the next stage of the SDLC. "
