Why Treating Test Management and Test Environment Management Separately Is Killing Your Efficiency By Alon Inditzky Imagine that you have hundreds of development, testing, and operations teams spread across the globe that rely on each other to execute software testing. You have 245 test environments and you release to pre-production several times a day and deploy to production once a week. How do you manage all the software tests, test data, and test environments? Traditionally, the answer would be to fill out spreadsheets or siloed tools, send emails, and hope that everything and everyone is ready at each stage of the software testing lifecycle (STLC).

Release Managers at a DevOps Divide By @Plutora | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

If you've been a release manager you'll understand that you sit between two groups: An operations group tasked with accepting and supporting a software release. This group wants a predictable process, they view releases as incidents to be managed, and they answer to a business that wants predictability and accountability. One or more development groups tasked with creating software to be released. These groups tend to be more diverse. You might have one development group that is using bleeding-edge technology to create a next-generation website that is more research than develop... (more)

Continuous Delivery and Legacy Software | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Microservices

The future of software releases is clear. Continuous delivery is here to stay. But does that mean that legacy software systems and infrastructure need to be altogether abandoned? If you polled the people busy redefining best practices today, they'd agree that in a decade we're going to be effortlessly collaborating on highly complex systems that are updated continuously. QA will be fully automated, deployment and infrastructure tasks will be immediate, and large enterprise-wide software projects will be able to move quickly. In the future, software releases won't feel so "manual... (more)
