Testing in Production: The Future of Testing

Kapil Saxena

When it comes to software services testing, there are typically two opposing camps: those who prefer testing in a closed lab environment to make it as close to production as possible, and those who prefer testing in production (TiP).

This white paper explores various TiP methodologies and provides real-world examples of how leading software services companies are deploying them.
