Last year in Australia and New Zealand, we observed growing enthusiasm to adopt agile and DevOps environments, and a determination also to make greater use of test automation. These desires are still very much in evidence this year, although in our experience, progress in implementation has been variable. For example, we see agile and DevOps approaches becoming embedded in project delivery teams, and only to some extent in technical teams.
The good news, though, is that even though these developments have been patchy, they are part of a bigger evolution. What we are witnessing is the beginning of a shift from quality assurance (QA) as a discrete function, to a future point at which it will be woven indistinguishably into every part of the software development lifecycle.
