Quality for DevOps teams
Deliver value with the right quality at speed. That's what organizations ask of their IT teams. To achieve this, IT people need to work closely together. Cross-functional teams of business analysts, developers, testers, operations people, and other involved areas of expertise, join forces to work towards business objectives. Collaboration is key. Collaboration between people that have shared responsibility and pick up the tasks that need to be done, based on competences and roles, no longer worrying about official functions.
The DevOps culture is the enabler for this way of high-performance IT delivery, using an automated CI/CD pipeline to deliver at speed. But how do you deliver value with the right quality using DevOps? This book, and this website enable teams to implement quality engineering practices using our body of knowledge that contains various approaches, practical examples and concise explanations. We trust that teams will benefit from this and enhance their collaboration to deliver value to their stakeholders.
Aligned with the DevOps culture of IT delivery – where roles are important and functions are not – keep in mind that if in this book you see a term such as developer or tester, we refer to the role of a team member at a specific moment in time, not to a function.
We trust you will find value in this book and wish you success and joy in applying the contents in your daily work.
