These are many technologies available to organizations looking to bring their testing up to the speed of software development. Ensuring quality can no longer be the drag on software deployment, if businesses want to stay competitive and be able to take advantage of changes in their markets.

Some are choosing continuous testing, while others are automating their tests. Some are writing tests first and then writing code to pass the test, while others write code based on the desired behavior of the application, and then test to make sure the app is doing what is was intended to do. Still others are employing service virtualization,to ensure the components and APIs their applications need are reliable.
