Certified QA Professionals
One of the big challenges in QA organizations is creating and maintaining test environments. Far too often, QA environments, if they exist at all, lag behind production in terms of space, speed, and software updates. Those of us in the QA world know that when you test on a completely different environment than production, your results are not going to be as accurate and significant issues can be easily missed. Not to mention the frustration involved in dealing with slow processing times, inadequate data, and chaotic build cycles. Add multiple development initiatives into the mix and you have a recipe for poor quality control and quick staff burnout.
Many organizations just can’t seem to find the time or money to keep even one, much less multiple test environments running up to par. However, having the correct mix of infrastructure is crucial to the success of QA organizations. Without a structured approach to test environment management, you end up with chaos and confusion surrounding test executions, significantly higher costs, and unreliable results.
Common issues for improperly managed environments
Unstable test environments
No clear guidelines or direction for environment establishment
Too many or too few environments
Insufficient development cycles
Unauthorized changes to environments
Inconsistency with production or other test environments
Non-existent or undefined best practices
Lack of documentation
Underutilization of assets
