Continuous testing refers to executing automated tests as part of the software delivery pipeline to obtain immediate feedback on the business risks associated with a software release candidate. The scope of testing extends from validating bottom-up requirements or user stories to assessing the system requirements associated with overarching business goals.
It provides a real-time, objective assessment of the business risks associated with an application under development. Applied uniformly, continuous testing allows both business and technical managers to make better trade-off decisions between release, scope, time, and quality.
