Hung Nguyen in SD Times’ “Testing in a Continuous Delivery world”

CEO Hung Nguyen offers his thoughts on continuous testing and automated tools for “Testing in a Continuous World,” a new special report from SD Times.

Automated tools are still relatively new, and the process can result in inconsistent reporting, false positives and botched execution. Hung Nguyen, CEO of LogiGear, said the idea is there, but the biggest challenge to automation is smoothing out the release process.

“Think of your entire development cycle as an automated assembly line,” he said. “Once you turn on the conveyor belt, you don’t have to worry about what’s going to come out the other side. But when you get to the system level of testing, thousands and thousands of test cases are running against these virtual machines, and it tends to have some timing problems. Open-source and commercial tools used in combination are just not robust enough yet, so you end up with a lot of so-called false positives and end up debugging.”
