DevOps is a software development practice where the focus is on automating repetitive processes . It has brought a change in the way organizations develop and deliver software products. The main purpose of this paper is to investigate the impact of DevOps on the Software Testing Life Cycle (STLC). There is a lot of ambiguity and confusion as to what is DevOps and how it is practiced and implemented and what change it has brought to the software development and the testing process. In this paper, I have investigated how DevOps has benefited the testing process through automated execution of unit, integration, and workflow tests in the build pipeline. This was achieved through a literature review of studies on test automation and with the help of a case study which is used to list the qualitative benefits of Continuous Testing. The results of the case study show that DevOps has qualitatively benefited the software testing process and has shifted the testing process to earlier phases of the software development cycle.
