Stalking Agile Success in the Wilds of Enterprise Scaling

A solid test management strategy can help enterprises effectively deploy agile practices.

Ensuring performance in an enterprise environment
Because enterprise software will often have larger workloads and users, companies must take special precautions to ensure that important applications can handle the strain. QA expert and TechTarget contributor Scott Barber stated performance testing, in particular, should be properly utilized in enterprise settings to evaluate software quality.

Although there are a few approaches companies can take to performance testing, full immersion will likely present the greatest benefits. This process involves having a specialized member of the test team focus his or her efforts on ensuring that in-development applications continue to meet their performance benchmarks throughout the production cycle. Barber noted that in order to effectively execute a full immersion strategy, QA teams must have personnel with finely honed skill sets as well as the assets employees will require to conduct their work.

Ensuring your tools support agile processes

While it is necessary to have personnel with specialized skill sets, having the right tool in place to employ these agile processes is crucial. These tools not only improve turnaround time when releasing to market, but they also improve the overall quality of your product. The concept of agility can’t be achieved by blindly following a set of guidelines, but rather to adjust them while embracing the principles behind them. Zephyr Enterprise Edition is a tool that truly enables teams to be agile by allowing them the flexibility to customize the functionality to their specific needs.

 

  • Fostering Collaboration - Improved collaboration is an absolute must in an agile environment, as feedback needs to travel quickly between the development and QA teams. Zephyr’s transparency and visibility allow anyone in the feature team or across the project to access test cases, review them, and then provide feedback to necessary personnel. Developers can access test cases for clarification and testing purposes, and product owners (who are totally disconnected from testers in many Agile projects) can review the test cases and provide feedback as well.

     
  • Scalability – In an enterprise environment, scalability is an absolute must. Response times to potentially hundreds of simultaneous users must be quick and secure. Couple that with the fact that there will be hundreds of projects with hundreds of thousands of testcases and executions, a high performance core to seamlessly link all of your assets is highly critical to your agile efforts. 

     
  • Test Automation – Efficient automated testing is key when responding to market change and quickly executing highly repeatable tasks. Frequent integration and early detection of defects will enable developers to keep the code bug free. QA teams can work closely with feature teams to provide support and do a final check before your products are released.A solid test management strategy can help enterprises effectively deploy agile practices.
