We know that most organizations today are integrating at least some test automation into their CI/CD pipelines. Most start with unit testing – which, while a great place to start, can't give you the level of confidence you need to safely deploy into production.

In this webinar, we'll talk about what other types of testing you should be integrating into the CI/CD pipeline to make test automation more valuable – as well as how to develop an integrated approach using Agile test management. We'll also share best practices for avoiding some of the most common anti-patterns we've identified that make it difficult to scale beyond the unit level. You will learn:

  • How to get more value out of test automation and minimize the number of defects identified late in the delivery cycle
  • How to avoid common anti-patterns related to collaboration, test data management, testing in the cloud and more 
  • Best practices for scaling and managing test automation across a diverse toolset using Agile test management
