As organizations embark on their DevOps adoption journeys, teams find that testing can’t keep up. Or worse, it hinders velocity. Development teams are investing in new tools that enable their DevOps transformation, but testing has been left behind. Enter quality engineering. QE is a practice of continuous testing performed in a culture of quality. It’s an opportunity to ask bigger questions, and make quality part of the conversation.
This year's survey of over 560 QA leaders found that testing was the foundation for teams successfully navigating the transition to DevOps.
We reviewed our survey of 600 industry professionals about their progress towards embracing DevOps, and explored the trends driving quality engineering.
...of organizations are in the process of or have fully adopted DevOps
...of consumers consider UX important when making a purchasing decision
...of employees are unhappy at work because of the software they use
...of teams are deploying code to production weekly or daily
Today, many of us are practicing quality assurance. QA traditionally assures the quality of code before it is released to production.
Quality engineering, on the other hand, is an opportunity to expand our roles. We work to create the best possible experience for our users by consistently optimizing application quality.
Move beyond shift-left and transition to continuous testing. By integrating testing further into development, teams can identify and address issues earlier. They’ll be resolved faster, and won’t negatively impact your users’ experience.
Quality engineering is enabled by intelligent, low-code test automation such as mabl.
QA is being redefined as test engineering, quality engineering, or even customer delight engineering. See what testing trends are creating the change in software testing.
Quality engineering is already the backbone of better software, but mabl found that QE is now having an impact on how DevOps organizations work.
Starting the quality engineering and DevOps shift at the sprint level makes change easier and higher impact. See our strategies for getting started.
