The ROI of Software Test Automation

Trends in Testing Automation

Testing is seen as something quickly done at the end of a long software development effort.  Believing that the bulk of the effort should be devoted to development, and not to quality assurance, often results in delayed deployments, loss of business, unsatisfied customers, and potentially even litigation.

Thankfully, the world is coming around to seeing testing as a must-have capability to avoid these problems, especially as CI/CD continues to become the standard software deployment practice.

DevTestOps, autonomous test automation, AI/ML supported testing and crowdsource testing are some of the newest areas in automation testing we are seeing out there.

Below you will find some interesting articles discussing the state-of-the-market in testing automation.

Here is our monthly curated list of thought-provoking books, blogs, and videos about emerging trends in the technology world:
