Software Testing is frequently considered the bottleneck in the traditional development process. When you see a graph of the time teams spend in testing, it looks like a bell curve, with the highest point right at the end, when you'd rather release software than spend more time testing it.
The Shift Left/Shift Right movements, are much more than mere buzzwords, seek to "smooth out" the big testing hump that blocks releases, moving testing resources earlier and later in the SDLC. This gives you a more stable, predictable, and confident release process, and removes a lot of the mystery and uncertainty from the process of delivering value to your customers.
