Quality Assurance in DevOps: Bridging Development and Testing

EasyChair Preprint no. 11361

10 pagesDate: November 21, 2023


In the dynamic landscape of software development, the integration of Quality Assurance (QA) within DevOps practices has emerged as a crucial facet to ensure the rapid, reliable, and high-quality delivery of software products. This abstract delves into the pivotal role of QA in the DevOps paradigm, emphasizing the necessity of a seamless collaboration between the development and testing phases. Traditional software development methodologies often segregated development and testing into distinct phases, leading to siloed processes and elongated release cycles. However, the advent of DevOps has revolutionized this approach by advocating for continuous integration, continuous delivery (CI/CD), and automated testing, thereby promoting agility and efficiency in software development. This abstract explores how the principles of DevOps align with QA practices, emphasizing the need for cross-functional teams that foster collaboration among developers, testers, and operations personnel. By leveraging metrics such as code coverage, test success rates, and deployment frequency, organizations can derive actionable insights, thereby enhancing the overall software quality. Lastly, the abstract outlines best practices and challenges associated with implementing QA in a DevOps environment, including cultural transformation, skillset alignment, and tool selection. It concludes by emphasizing the need for a cultural shift towards a collaborative mindset and the adoption of innovative tools and techniques to successfully integrate QA into the DevOps pipeline.
