Lead Solution PaaS Architect at Capgemini, Sander Rensen, has managed the successful rollout of API-first development, microservices architectures, and CI/ CD pipelines at multiple global enterprises. Capgemini clients have benefited from accelerated journeys to complete and safe digital transformation.
For this retailer, Sander and other Capgemini leaders knew from experience that one of their first priorities was to solve the problem of bottlenecks in testing, particularly those costly and time-consuming testing bottlenecks that come late in the lifecycle and frustrate developers, product owners and business owners.
The UI testing solution already in place was not enough to achieve continuous quality and eliminate testing bottlenecks. After all, UI testing cannot sufficiently test APIs, the backbone of all modern mobile apps and web services. Formerly, software quality teams may have divided testing into 80% for UI and 20% for APIs. But modern apps and services have inverted the allocation of testing to 80% for APIs and 20% of UI.
