The end goal of every Agile process is to deliver value to the customer early and often. However, many organizations struggle with getting work that is “done” across the finish line and into customers’ hands. Software teams that accomplish work rapidly and maximize value for their customers use a robust, automated continuous deployment process to reduce work into simple units, remove roadblocks, and embrace change that leads to progress.
SonarQube is an open-source tool for continuous code inspection. It collects and analyzes source code and provides reports on the code quality of your projects. With regular use, SonarQube guarantees a universal standard of coding within your organization while ensuring application sustainability. Here’s a quick overview of how SonarQube works, why we use it, and how to get started.
Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is a discipline created by Google engineers that replaces the traditional approach to operations with something nimbler. It applies engineering expertise to operations and infrastructure problems, which allows for reliability at scale, quicker deployments, and a well-defined system environment. Here’s an overview of the SRE model and considerations for incorporating it into your development process.
Businesses are complicated - they have intricate processes, are continually evolving, and need to be scalable. For companies that rely on software as a core component of the business, that complexity is typically reflected in their business-critical software applications.
One strategy that maximizes value and minimizes software complexity is using a business rules engine that encapsulates business-specific logic and keeps it separate from the rest of the application code. Here is more information about what a business rules engine is and how it can benefit your business.
Testing has always been an important stage of the software development lifecycle. Teams that do it well clearly understand the benefits and are often the strongest advocates for the practice. Unit tests should be a given in any web application’s code base. Automated functional testing takes this a step further and allows application testing on the user-interface level, which adds another layer of protection that helps catch mistakes before they reach production.
In this article, you’ll learn more about how cloud-based automation testing tools help software development teams reduce costs, create higher code quality, and increase velocity so they can move forward quickly.
