In this edition, our focus is on Agile testing. As per Forrester, “Agile development is rapidly becoming the norm” . Agile has taken many forms and moved well be-yond the Agile manifesto. There are also so many differ-ent methodologies classified under Agile- Scrum, Fea-ture/Test driven development, eXtreme programming. Specific to testing-As per the World Quality Report 2013-14, Agile development is widely adopted, but still gives rise to problems for testing- the key challenges reported by executives include – Lack of a good testing approach to fit in with the Agile development, low levels of test automation, lack of Tools to create reusable test sets , difficulty in identifying the right areas on which Testing should focus. This edition includes an article on the ben-efits and use of Rally, in one of our Agile projects.
