The ultimate goal of a DevOps approach is to deliver high-quality features to your customers at the pace they need. High performing DevOps shops point to continuous testing and test automation as key contributors to their success.
Accelerated delivery is now mandatory, especially for digital transformation. That is the reason continuous delivery, low-code, no-code development is getting utilized everywhere. Application teams need to release the new features faster or update the features faster.
