What is Test Environment Management?
Your test environment (and the underlying IT infrastructure) is a complex foundation upon which all of your testing is based. It must have the specified components properly installed with the right versions and configuration files and settings, and be stable and usable as expected, in a timely manner.
Despite the careful control under which testing takes place, setting up the test environment and configuration is often done on-the-fly by whoever has time instead of by having a trained expert following a set procedure. Each environment must be easy for you to reproduce for whenever it needs to be swapped back in for reuse.
Also, you need to consider if each environment is a better fit for your test lab or in the cloud. Virtual environments, with their scalability benefits and connections to new technology and methodologies, still have complexity regarding networking, hypervisors, availability, platform integration and backup/recovery.
The Risks of Ad Hoc Environments
The QualiTest Solution
Software testing is dependent on running in a test environment. We at QualiTest leverage our deep technology understanding to control this important first step of implementing a testing solution. This includes our building detailed environments like VRE (Virtual Radiology Environment) and building test environments for the strict guidelines required for NFV. Testing software requires being able to comprehend and create the base system architecture and configuration needed to properly fit your testing needs, for both lab and virtual environments. Whether you need help building test environments, maintaining them, or both, we are experts at ramping up on this firm testing foundation.
