Test Automation: Driving the New Digital Imperative
Quality Engineering is the foundation to release high-quality software. Along with Shift Left, test automation is one of the biggest and essential pillars to build a QE practice. Test automation has gained a significant ground as testing teams are becoming an integral part of the DevOps ecosystem. Test automation and open source tool stacks play a vital role in driving massive QE initiatives. We begin the transition from QA to QE with automation. We believe that automation is perhaps the foundational element to meet the new digital imperative. There is a seamless integration of Test Automation with DevOps tools providing a high-quality software for enterprises.
Mitigating the Billion Dollar Software Fail Problem with Automation
Tricentis released a Software Fail Watch report few months back. Some of the stats in this report were quite alarming. It said that a software fail at some point in time in 2016 affected more than half of the world’s population. This fail has hit over 350 companies and has resulted in damages of over $1.1 trillion assets. There are a lot of other alarming stats, and you can refer to in the infographic below.
Seems like this is happening because applications are growing quickly, the wherewithal to manage them is not. And how can a sound software quality check and balance come into action? At QMetry, we believe that scaling large applications need the scaling of test automation mechanics at the same level. Furthermore to scale this automation, you’ll need the right tools that fit in with your larger device ecosystem, especially if you are in playing the DevOps spectrum.
