QAOps refers to maintaining software quality by approaching it with a DevOps mindset. You must have come across the term “DevOps”. DevOps refers to Software Development (Dev) and IT Operations (Ops) and establishes a relationship between development and IT Operations.

The purpose of introducing DevOps as a business practice is to improve the collaboration between the two business units.

Quality Assurance (QA) plays a major role in the delivery of a quality software product. If it is possible to bring software development and software operations together, wouldn’t it be possible for organizations to bring software QA and software operations together as a business practice? This brings a new flavor to DevOps known as QAOps framework.

Definition of QAOps

While there is no official definition for QAOps, we can define the technique based on these two principles.

  • The main idea of introducing the QAOps framework is to integrate the continuous testing in DevOps with theContinuous Integration (CI)/Continuous Deployment(CD) pipeline rather than performing software testing at indefinite intervals.
  • QAOps framework increases the collaboration between the QA engineers and developers. Therefore, QA engineers must work closely with software developers, operations personnel and everyone involved in the CI/CD pipeline.
