DevOps (Agile) versus QA (Waterfall, SDLC)

When working within the TOGAF framework, it is important to propose the right architecture for the right development methodology. 

For example, for an Agile methodology, there would be a heavy component of CI (Continuous Integration) and CD (Continuous Delivery).  For a waterfall model, not so much CI and CD as there would be QA.


DevOps entails the use of tools such as BUGtrack, JIRA and GitHub.  Test automation tools including Selenium, Cucumber, JUnit, TestNG and JMeter manage, execute and measure functional tests and cycles.

QA uses standard lifecycle management tools – such as HP ALM.
