QUALITY SHOULD BE LIVED BY EVERYONE, NOT ONLY GOVERNED BY QUALITY ASSURANCE TEAMS
Continuous testing means testing over the whole software development lifecycle (SDLC) while testing at digitalization era means much more as it requires a significant paradigm shift in quality mindset; i.e. “Shift Left of Testing” which means any quality assurance topic needs to be initiated as early as possible in the SDLC. In Siemens way of enabling better test management, this implies introduction of a new role called “Test Owner” to govern the testing process more efficiently.
