As DevOps accelerates the deployment of code from the development to the production environments, this influences the execution of the software testing activity that should assess the quality of this code. How do we integrate software testing into DevOps? Does DevOps mean the end of testing? Luz Parra provides some answers these questions.

Retail is one of the industries the most impacted with the digital transformation. A retailer reputation is at risk if the consumer has a bad experience either in a store or in front of an e-commerce website. Software quality assurance and software testing are important activities to prevent issues. This article discusses some main challenges of test automation in the retail industry.
Your team has some test data. Let’s say you loaded in a backup form production a few months ago. Your QA specialists are familiar with the data, but your software developers hate it. They keep telling you, “It is not the right data,” or, “It is not very useful for testing.” You let them write and automate some tests, but it is not enough.
Most of the time, software testing is based on comparing the actual behavior of a code or a system with its expected behavior. In his article “The Challenges of Testing in a Non-Deterministic World”, Donald Firesmith explains however that not all software and systems are deterministic, for instance an autonomous adaptive vehicle that uses machine learning software, and that software testing needs to adapt to this context.
