The IT & Test Environment Problem Statement
Weak Test Environment management is a leading challenge for IT organizations and departments. Without effective management of ones Non-Production Environments, organizations are exposed to an array of challenges, which include:
- Test Environment System outages and instability leading to delivery disruption.
- Test Environments not being fit for purpose i.e. not supporting DevTest.
- Manual, slow, and untimely IT & Test environment service operations.
- Test Environment Footprint (infrastructure, license, and service) over-proliferation.
This all translates an impact on software testing, quality, IT overspends, project delays & consequently slow delivery of change to your customers.
