Is your current deployment frequency choked by your testing speed? Is regression testing driving you to boreout? Do you think test automation is a tough cookie to crack? Have you wondered on how to best leverage robots and humans in software testing? Are you benefitting from the speed of robots and ingenuity of humans? Are you utilizing your manual testers’ capabilities well? If you are a tester, a developer, a test manager or a product manager you probably deal with these questions in your everyday life.
Speed of software delivery always depends on testing. Look around, it takes a well thought, well written and well tested software to disrupt the market. Take any one of the components off the recipe and a business will lose its competitiveness in the market and dig its way to an early grave. This phenomenon has become rampant with the advances in technology. Currently, businesses are under intense pressure to deliver a continuously enhancing experience to the end user. They want to build better software faster and deliver it quicker than their competitors. Offering a product with superior quality faster lays the difference between growing your business or going out of business.
Software is growing more and more ubiquitous with our daily living with each passing year. We grow more dependent on software for our daily interactions, from connecting with friends to handling banking.
What is the future of QA and how we can optimize the QA process to make it easier for ourselves to guarantee software that behaves in ways we want. Here are the five steps from only testing the system to understanding the usage of the software from human written tests towards measuring business KPIs and using these to evaluate the quality of the system.
Happy test cases by developers lead to damaged brand
In my first internships as a tester in an internal startup, I was sitting within 10 m to the development and the business. This was a brilliant opportunity for me to learn how differently they think and operate. One of the most exciting observation was to witness a business requirement being translated into a code, and very seldom, if ever the code was an exact implementation of the business requirement.
As the world changes and becomes more and more digital, companies need to keep up with the development. New ideas as well as ability to create social and economic value from those ideas is becoming increasingly important. On the technology field new innovations emerge almost every day. How you define a game-changing technology and what do you need to achieve to make something truly game-changing?
