The temporary nature of test environments creates opportunities to reduce the time it takes to cycle through individual tests. If hours can be shaved down to minutes in the process of setting up an environment, running a test and tearing down the environment, then budgets for test environments can be cut considerably. The impact of cloud adoption on test environments is a valuable advancement in both cost savings and agility. The on-demand model takes advantage of public cloud APIs requiring only payment for the time needed to run automated tests. In this framework, success depends on two things: automated infrastructure and automated acceptance tests. If these two goals can be achieved, the cost savi... (more)

Multiple QA and Staging Environments | @DevOpsSummit Serverless #CloudNative #DevOps

Why do you need multiple QA and staging environments? When a company looks at its numbers and asks, "Why do we spend so much on hardware?" it's the responsibility of CTOs and CIOs to provide a quick answer.

The Glitch Economy | @DevOpsSummit @Plutora #DX #CD #DevOps #DigitalTransformation

In today's digitized world, a software glitch can create chaos. For example, in July 2017, a glitch caused the stock prices of blue-chip Nasdaq companies such as Amazon, Apple, Alphabet, eBay and Microsoft to be misreported on websites long after that day's closing bell. Even though the real-world prices of the stocks were unchanged, the sites showed some had taken a nosedive in price and others had nearly doubled. Unsurprisingly, investors were rattled and took to social media to debate the false listings, dragging company names into a cloud of suspicion over something that ha... (more)
