What you'll learn

One definition of Operability is a measure of how well your software works when operating, and when highly operable, the software is easy to deploy, test, and query once in production.

In just 20-minutes, you'll get:

  • A perspective into Operability and how it can be an effective tool to manage risk in conjunction with testing

  • Some simple models and outline how you and your team can get started with Operability.

"When I started out in Software testing fifteen years ago we used to literally ship software on discs to our customers. A defect in Production had a huge associated cost and therefore it was seen as reasonable to spend weeks if not months testing prior to a release. Testing was the only tool we had in our risk management toolbox.

Today, with the adoption of Agile, Continuous Delivery and DevOps practices teams are capable of deploying changes multiple times a day. This presents a whole new set of challenges and risks, so how can we manage risk effectively in this fast-paced, complex new world?"
