The Role of Development and QA Teams

Testing is an integral part of the software development lifecycle. Both teams share a common objective—discovering bugs and code flaws before the software is delivered to the market. Due to the short, continuously iterative development practices of Agile methodologies, developers are forced to write, run and maintain integration tests for each software component. These tests must be run before each release cycle.

The high release velocity expected of development organizations means that there is less time available to Dev and QA teams to write and execute new tests. In addition, developing and maintaining integration tests is expensive and usually detrimental to the team’s efficiency.

This has made testing a bottleneck for fast-paced development organizations, resulting in inefficient processes due to redundant tests.

.

High Release
Velocity

In Agile environments, software development teams have to code much faster.

If testing is rushed to increase release velocity, software quality declines as technical debt piles up.

Running Unnecessary
Tests

There is limited or no visibility on the areas of code being tested.

Scrum teams waste time and resources writing and running unnecessary tests.

There is no information on whether Scrum teams are testing the right sections of code or even using the right tests.

Fixing Problems Rather than
Developing New Features

Areas of code that were not tested in a certain build or during release cycles result in increased technical debt, quality issues and problems with the software.

Many software teams find themselves spending more time fixing problems than developing new features.
