Integrating a Cloud Solution into Your Test Environment
Cloud computing is THE big buzzword in the computing industry today. At Gerdau, they have chosen a cloud computing solution for their ongoing test environment strategy, employing an outsourced infrastructure vendor. Jim Trentadue explains why it is critical that sound testing environment practices be in place before moving to the cloud. He reviews steps his company took to migrate to a cloud-based environment-starting with a development sandbox, through various testing phases, and finally to the pre-production staging area before deploying to production. Jim reviews how to integrate cloud computing into your test management practices and concludes by highlighting thoughts of how cloud-based test environments can change testing process and procedures. With a cloud test environment, your organization can realize the benefits of strictly segregated code bases for quicker defect resolution. Join this session and take back the basics for implementing a cloud-based test environment that offers greater capability and flexibility with the same or lower costs.
