FEI Systems is expert in Agile testing in DevOps automated pipeline testing and independent testing in DevSecOps and Agile environments. We embed our testers within integrated Agile-Scrum development teams. We conduct functional, integration, performance, security, and accessibility testing—and more. FEI was an early adopter of independent, integrated, automated, Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) testing implementation. Through rapid and short incremental iterations of development and testing cycles, our testers nimbly respond to evolving business requirements.
We integrate our testing professionals with Agile-Scrum development teams while maintaining our product quality-focused independence. Key to our approach is to “Shift Testing Left.” This means conducting testing activities as early in the development process as possible. Involving testers before and during development ensures a common understanding of requirements before they are implemented. As defects are identified, testers complete comprehensive testing within the Sprint. This enables our testers to keep pace with the Agile development cadence.
Our Agile Testing/DevSecOps approach supports the three cadences of Agile development: Build-level testing (each code deployment), Sprint-level testing (2-3 week Sprint cycles), and Increment-level testing (3-month program increment cycle). Tests are implemented at all three cadences, so teams can identify issues at the build level rather than later in the development cycle.
AGILE TESTING BENEFITS
FEI Systems established a Testing Center of Excellence for Agile and SAFe software testing. Our Testing Center of Excellence promotes several significant benefits, including the following:
