In this IBM® Redpaper publication, we focus on the importancequality. This paper explains how this testing can be achieved only in an effective and efficient way by autenable such automation.

We specifically focus on Galasa. Galasa is an open-source deep integration test framework for hybrid cloud applications that allows teams to automate tests to run as part of a DevOps pipeline.

Galasa was built as an integration test framework to test applications spanning multiple platforms as part of a hybrid multi-cloud. It also integrates all the test tools that are needed to test such an application. This feature gives you a single test catalog, single endpoint to run tests and a single UI to review the reports from those tests. These enterprise-level features are key to unlocking the value of your automation and allow you to deliver your DevOps journey.
