The smart way of designing test environments

Press release from: imbus AG

Moehrendorf, 16 December 2016 – Test environments are a crucial factor for every software quality project. However, their contribution to the project’s success is often underestimated. In the new issue of “Professional Tester”, Dr Christian Brandes outlines an approach for designing test environments in a feasible, describable and comparable way.

What is needed for conceiving an appropriate test environment? There is no enshrined set of standards yet. In addition to that, the definition of a term like near environment is often imprecise. Hence it is high time for a systematic approach in describing and comparing test environments.
Dr Christian Brandes, trainer and principal consultant at imbus, does so in his new technical article named “Designing Near-Production Test Environments”. He examines already existing standards for environments in IT and defines “near-production” as a central term. After that, the journey from the test objective via required near-production to the test environment is displayed. The readers learn how to identify multi-purpose environments and their characteristics.
By using Dr Christian Brandes’ approach, newly emerging requests for environments can be catered to a reliable manner. All stakeholders get a common understanding and vocabulary making the communication a lot easier. Diverging ideas about test environments can be documented in a collaborative and comprehensible way.
