Checklist to Shift Your Testing Left

Checklist to Shift Your Testing Left

When companies shift testing to the left, their teams gain the ability to catch bugs earlier in the SDLC. Quality gates ingrained sooner increase coverage and bugs are less likely to reach your customers. A bug found at the end of the SDLC can cost 100 times what it costs if found earlier in the process.

With shift-left testing enabling increased development speeds, your teams can support CI/CD, stay ahead of the competition by launching new features more frequently, and encounter fewer problems at release. Go through our checklist to see if your internal QA process is using shift-left practices — or if you have room for improvement.
