Implementing an agile, DevOps-centered workflow involves several distinct steps. In other words, the process required to evolve from traditional, “waterfall”-style development to continuous delivery of software is a journey, not something that organizations can implement all at once. While many organizations today have begun the DevOps journey by adopting some tools and methodologies that promote agility, a lack of fully automated testing often prevents them from completing it. The integration of efficient automated testing into workflows is therefore a crucial step for organizations seeking to achieve full agility and complete the DevOps journey.
