In today’s Internet of Things (IoT) world, device-created digital data is everywhere. The need to make use of this big data is quickly gaining relevance across every industry sector. Device developers want to use this data and key analytics to deliver better products and services, and consumers want their devices to be as personable as possible. It’s a perfect world of opportunity – but it’s also creating a “perfect storm” of challenges for quality assurance (QA) teams that are scrambling to catch up.
The QA and testing approaches we’ve relied on for years are no longer adequate or even relevant in our new connected IoT world. There are several reasons for this:
The shift in focus from a strictly application integration process to end-to-end user experience is significant, but it’s not the only challenge that QA organizations face. In my next blog in this series of three, I’ll cover more testing trials and tribulations confronting us in this connected world.
Meanwhile, please share your thoughts on this topic and how you see the connected world of testing changing.
Mindtree will be at STAREAST this May 3-8, delivering a technical presentation called “NexGen testing – Enterprise Test Delivery Platform” on May 7 that corresponds to this topic. Visit our booth to learn how you can integrate design, CI and TestOps.
