In the IT industry, testing in production has always been considered an anti-pattern. However, in Capital One we have been successfully testing our critical digital customer facing applications in production for over 18 months now! Why do we do it? The answer is simple, the alternative to proactive chaos engineering is reactive crisis management. Chaos engineering is not new to the industry or Capital One, what's new is the scale of experiments being executed on a regular basis and a set of closely integrated software solutions we are utilizing to make it successful.
