Enterprises are doing everything in their power to jump on the DevOps bandwagon but this journey is not all sunshine and rainbows, a recent study shows.
DevOps has gone mainstream —there is no doubt about it. Every company is trying to do it and every manager is trying to be successful at it but in order to understand the present and face the future, they need to look at the past and replace the software test automation tools.
When an enterprise adopts DevOps, there are certain changes that need to occur —one of them (which should happen but does not) is the replacement of software test automation tools. One cannot fully embrace DevOps without aligning all the bits and pieces.
New research commissioned by Appvance Inc. and carried out by Vanson Bourne shows that companies’ road to DevOps is often blocked by an issue called the “QA wall.” Seventy-nine percent of respondents stated that increasing the frequency of software releases is a priority for their company; they also believe that increasing the frequency of software releases would help them achieve their business objectives.
Seventy-three percent of respondents have adopted DevOps processes, with 57 percent of them still experiencing a bottleneck during software testing that impacts how fast new and updated software can be released. Sixty percent of respondents claimed that security concerns have prevented them from accelerating the software testing process while 81 percent believe there are opportunities in their organization to further automate software testing to accelerate releases.
