Complexity, velocity, and visibility are the primary challenges of every software development executive. There is an increasing demand for software teams to deliver software faster; huge efforts are put into automating development and testing efforts, implementing countless tools, methods, techniques and frameworks. But what happened to quality in this process?
The reality is that agile development teams are essentially “flying blind”. They rely on insufficient data when releasing to production, without knowing the real status of the quality of their builds, and no way to control untested code changes that might lead to production failures. Development Executives do not have the necessary visibility to eliminate these quality issues.
