According to Gartner by next year, over 268 billion of mobile apps will be downloaded creating a revenue of $77 billion. As a result, many new softwares developments, new approaches to technologies and new cloud based testing are being approached. As a result, many are looking forward for test automation for a better and faster delivery of best and quality product. Testing has now become more customer centric than product centric.
We can take a major trend in software testing with significant importance in 2016 and near future:
1.Internet of things (IoT):
IoT is a network of physical devices like vehicles, cameras, buildings etc., connected with electronics software sensors and network connectivity which will enable things to exchange data. With more number of connections there will be more amount data being collected there are challenges on sanity of data being collected along with accuracy. IoT has introduced an important impact on various types of testing.
Internet of things has implemented the use of automation in testing to ensure wider range of code coverage. Performance testing has taken to a new level with IoT with the data being transmitted over the network in an uninterrupted platform. As information gets continuously transmitted security testing becomes critical with IoT applications to avoid data breaches and malicious attacks.
Mobile testing remains on the top of the list for automation testing as the number of mobile applications getting downloaded is growing predominantly, and hence making a remarkable shift in mobile business technology. Experts even believe that mobile testing will cross web testing if the market for mobiles will grow at the same rate. This testing will definitely be dominating the software testing industry. The major testing areas in this area will be performance, security, functional, compatibility and usability testing. Mcommerce and mobile payments have set up a new challenge for QA experts, to test security, performance and usability of mobile payments.
With the rapid increase of internet of things on mobile combinations and operating systems with other daily usage things many companies have now adopted mobile cloud testing labs which are reducing the cost and time.
3.Bigdata and predictive analytics testing:
Predictive analytics and Bigdata are interlinked connections. Networks, devices and applications generate very huge amount of data which contains unstructured and broken data which will lead to false decision making and costly affairs if the quality management is absent. Predictive analytics will tend the companies and organizations to use big data and help the customer to look in a better business management. Big data and analytic testing will help business to get the customers needed.
Along with the above mentions testing’s Agile and DevOps also make a front row in testing which are providing a continuous and faster delivery of the products, apart from these micro service and APIs testing, configuration management automation, life cycle testing and virtualization and containerization are some of the main trending testing’s.
