The ultimate objective of a DevOps approach is to deliver quality products to your customers as efficiently as possible. DevOps shops that achieved this state point to continuous testing as a key contributor to their success. However, QA and testing have become forgotten orphans in the DevOps journey of many organizations.

The culprit is often the inability to incorporate stable automation into their testing practices.

Specifically, the discussion will touch on key practices and methods for implementing effective test automation in a DevOps pipeline including test suite & test scope, automation approach/methods, and test environment and data management.
