Automated testing to support application
development reaps many rewards

very IT organization
struggles to meet business
expectations. Frequently,
these expectations are in conflict.
The business requires
production systems to be highly
reliable and available with a strong
set of controls in place to ensure
that whatever is deployed into
the production system is of high
quality and has been thoroughly
vetted. But the business also
expects to deploy new applications
and capabilities quickly to
adjust to ever-changing market
conditions and new ventures. A
key component in meeting these
goals is establishing the right
environments and practices to
rapidly create applications of
maximum quality.

It’s a challenge to build test
and development environments,
but leveraging these automated
testing techniques can help
create a streamlined continuous
delivery pipeline.

Development Environments
Development teams need
environments where they can
create, investigate, prototype, try
out, vet and verify the capabilities
and runtime characteristics of
their work. These development
environments typically are
separate from the systems
where production applications
operate—and for good reason.
As the size and complexity
of applications and development
teams increase, so do the require-

ments on their development
systems. Multiple copies of the
development and test environments are often needed so teams
can work in relative isolation.
While they must be a close
approximation of the production
platform, they usually differ to
keep costs down and to allow
more diagnostic capabilities and
an opportunity to debug features.
From time to time, development teams must be allowed to
investigate the usage of new or
additional features offered by the
runtime environment.
With regard to functional
capabilities offered and the
configuration of various middleware employed, environments
must generally mirror each other
