Software Testing is one of the most vital aspects of the overall SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) and its significance cannot be underestimated as it ensures whether the developed software is fit to be introduced to the customers or not.
As competition in the field of software development is increasing dramatically, a large number of organizations are emphasizing more on software testing. Efficacious testing of software helps in reducing the time to market, and enables the organization to gain an edge over their competitors.
As software testing is becoming more prominent, the trends in this domain are also changing frequently. Here, we have summarized the top software testing trends that are expected to dominate the software testing market in the coming year.
- DevOps and Agile Testing Will Become More Prominent
As per Forrester, the organizations which once used to focus on having centralized TCoEs (Test Centers of Excellence), are now emphasizing more on DevOps and Agile testing.
The entire testing arena is making a significant shift towards quality engineering, and the organizations are working towards making testing automated, progressive, iterative, and seamlessly integrated with the software development process.
- Open Source Tools Will Become The Software Testing Future
As organizations are gearing up for the implementation of test automation frameworks, DevOps and the agile environment, QA professionals are using open source tools. The open source tools are not only free and extensive, but, as there’s a huge community behind them, the updates are more frequent. The support communities behind these open source tools are becoming more involved and active with time.
- IoT is Heralding An Era of Digitally Connected Devices
With IoT growing dramatically and becoming an important part of the digital world around us, many customers have started relying more on IoT testing before using the products. About 70% of the devices connected with IoT are highly vulnerable to security issues, and thus, robust IoT testing is certainly going to be a prominent trend in the software testing arena in the days to come.
- Big Data Testing is On Its Way To Become Bigger in Future
Big Data has become vital for businesses as it has the capability to reveal resourceful insights that can greatly help a business take informed and better decisions. But, before using Big Data for retrieving insights, it’s important to evaluate the credibility of this colossal data, which is only possible through Big Data testing. This is why we can expect the Big Data testing to become even bigger and better in the coming future.
- DevOps Will Become The Driver of Quality Engineering
The DevOps has a very simple ideology behind it, and it’s the seamless integration and collaboration between the diverse departments of an IT organization, including IT professionals, quality analysts, software developers, and the coders.
Testing plays a critical role in software development, as it is extremely important to validate the correctness of the code and ensure that the software being developed is capable of delivering all the expected functions in the desired manner. All these are imperative from the overall Quality Engineering aspect.
DevOps is propelling businesses towards achieving better speed in the processes with quality assurance to achieve higher ROI as well as faster time to market.
