How the quality assurance and performance testing works
A badly formed automation approach will damage a cloud programme. A sound one can assist, reducing cycle times for delivery, permitting more aggressive rates of change whilst protecting the quality of the deployments.

Many automation initiatives are flawed from the start. They suffer from piecemeal investment and from inappropriate, follow the crowd, decisions with no analysis to underpin these choices. This service helps organisations make informed choices about the direction to travel in and the approach to delivering what is required to make that journey.
