The Test Suite Canvas: A Framework for Effective DevOps Testing

A guide to help you understand what test suites are necessary and promote critical thinking around the implementation and support of effective automated testing.

Testing in DevOps must provide fast, accurate and actionable feedback. The test suites, and the tests within them, must provide valuable information that helps the organization assess the quality of their builds.

Unfortunately, many organizations fail to achieve the effective test automation required to support continuous integration and delivery. There are several common root causes, but they can all be traced to a failure to be intentional about implementing the test suites.

Organizations don’t put in the critical thinking and effort required to build and sustain effective automated test suites.

The answer is the Test Suite Canvas from Forte Group, a framework for effective DevOps testing.
