Digital is the New Normal
And it’s putting increasing pressures on Test/QA teams.
New digital technologies are enabling enterprises to re-think business processes, modernize the way they engage with customers, increase operational efficiency, and create new products and services.
The opportunities are endless, but success in digital requires new ways of thinking, and equally important, new ways of executing in the software development lifecycle. This is especially true in software testing and QA, where delivery teams need to move faster and more flexibly – without sacrificing quality or customer satisfaction. This means integrating development and QA efforts, automating manual processes wherever possible, and being ready to meet the unknown Testing and QA requirements of the latest digital technologies like IoT and AI.
In late 2019, Apexon surveyed QA/Test professionals and executives in the US and UK to assess the impact that digital engineering is having on their efforts. We wanted to understand the key challenges they face as well as the strategies they are implementing to keep pace in the world of digital.
