There are some key DevOps practices that enable organizations to automate and streamline the software development processes. Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD), Continuous Deployment, Microservices, Infrastructure as Code (IaC), Containerization, Monitoring & Logging are a few of them.
There is no limit to what technology-led solutions can do for businesses and consumers. That is why organizations are spending a large share of their IT budget on application development.
Every industry & organization is transforming itself digitally. In this process, they are taking their existing, offline userbase to an online platform. The best part is, these online platforms can capacitate as many users as a business want. But, there is a catch.
Most industries advancing their digital transformation are increasingly relying on Quality Assurance (QA) and testing. The banking sector is taking a cue from several industries' digital roadmaps to maximize their prosperity from technology adoption. At the end of the day, quality-assured digital banking services help meet the expectations of technologically equipped customers.
Load testing is a subset of performance testing that checks a system for its availability and response time during a concurrent load of users. It ensures that an application is able to handle the load without compromising with performance.
DevOps proved to be a successful collaboration between the development and operations team to bring software to market, as fast as possible. The CI/CD pipeline ensured that quality accompanies speed in development.
Did you ever realize this? The eCommerce app that you generally shop from offers a seamless experience. But when you shop from the same app during a sale, it crashes very often. This happens because the app server is not prepared to handle a load of concurrent users on the server.
Technology is spreading its wings to provide a profusion of opportunities. We have millions of smart, interconnected devices and complex systems that are enabling us to do much more than human potentiality. But the hard fact is, these systems are not foolproof and highly vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
A penetration test also called the pen test is a mock attack on the security system to assess potential risks and vulnerabilities. It is commonly done to boost the web application firewall (WAF).
Feedback is an element of utter importance in the entire software development life cycle. It exhibits the progress rate of a project and ascertain developers that they are moving in the right direction to deliver what is expected by the stakeholders. In a conventional approach for software development, testing is usually followed by code designing. While this model has got assured advantages, it has got some stumbling blocks as well. For example: Delay in project delivery due to error fixing and changes in application functionality at later stage.
