Rubik's cube being solved A Tester's Role in AIOps

“AIOps” stands for “artificial intelligence in IT operations,” or using machine learning and data science to solve IT problems. AI can help with many IT functions, including detecting and remediating outages, monitoring availability and performance, and IT service management. Like with DevOps, a tester plays an important part with AIOps—they just have to determine what that is.

Person looking at a bar graph for information Information Loss in Software Testing

The higher you climb in the organization, the less information you get: An executive might only see red, yellow, and green for a project. Any time different teams need to communicate complex information, there is bound to be some information loss, and maybe some information control. We just need to understand where and why that happens, and—hopefully—how we can mitigate it.

Hans Buwalda Same-Sprint Automation: An Interview with Hans Buwalda

Hans Buwalda, CTO at LogiGear, discusses how to accomplish same-sprint automation. The testers, automation engineers, and developers are all working in the same sprint, so you can immediately hand off what you are working on and get it into the next phase. Hans also talks about why it’s so challenging to get teams to agree on same-sprint automation, saying the commitment for the sprint needs to come from the team as well as the business.

I need help developing a test strategy for UAT of Loyalty Points System. I'd appreciate any guidance on how to approach testing.

I need help. I don't have very clear requirements and I have never tested a loyalty points system before. I need to design the test cases for the users to execute UAT. Any pointers?

QA professionals performing continuous testing How Continuous Testing Is Done in DevOps

DevOps does speed up your processes and make them more efficient, but companies must focus on quality as well as speed. QA should not live outside the DevOps environment; it should be a fundamental part. If your DevOps ambitions have started with only the development and operations teams, it’s not too late to loop in testing. You must integrate QA into the lifecycle in order to truly achieve DevOps benefits.
