Digital projects require that products and platforms are launched in the market with short time to market, updates are provided continuously without compromise on the quality. Quality assurance in such projects is challenging to meet high expectations of business, reduce cost of quality and leverage test automation to enable continuous testing.
In addition, development approach in digital transformation projects is changing in many aspects:
- Agile development methodology is used to increase flexibility, adaptability to change and incremental releases. Hence testing need to be incremental, iterative and hand-in-glove with development.
- Data projects are increasingly leveraging Analytics, AI & ML methods and big data platforms. Testing methodologies need to accommodate model performance testing, fine tuning and performance testing of big data platforms.
- Customers develop open, connected digital platforms leveraging micro-services and APIs. Verification of easy integration, usability, reliability and security are essential to verifying such platforms.
- Applications will be used on a diverse set of devices by end users. Verification on a representative sample set of devices, operating systems, form factors, screen resolutions and browsers are essential to ensure user experience.
