Digital transformation is influencing businesses to adopt digital channels such as web, mobile, social media and many more to sell their services/products, interact and engage with customers to deliver a digital customer experience. However, digital transformation has brought significant changes to the way applications are developed for businesses, also impacting the way applications are tested.
In this digital world, having competitive advantage is what every business seeks, so most businesses have leaned towards agile development which enables to adopt changes into their application. To have the edge over their competitors, businesses strive to reach their customers with an application that’s better than the competitor product empowering them to deliver their services/products and to interact and engage with their customers better.
Therefore, for competitive edge, digitized businesses strive to achieve “faster time to market” with the agility to adopt ever-evolving enhancements into applications. But releasing an application with new features/enhancements is not enough to gain competitive edge, businesses need to deliver a quality application with intuitive user experience.
Software Testing is one such process that’s continuous and in this digital world, it is not just continuous but it is also an ever-evolving process. The year 2017 has seen an evolution of software testing trends such as increase adoption of test automation, continuous testing and many more.
