Key findings from the report
  • Customer experience is front and center - Participants in the WQR reported that ‘Ensure user satisfaction’ is at the top of their QA and testing strategy. This would have been unthinkable ten years ago.  But with customer-centered innovation driving digital transformations and the adoption of agile, DevOps, and a move to the Cloud, it is also resetting the expectations for testing.
  • Emerging tech is having a significant impact - The report notes an increasing adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to help testers test more effectively. At the same time though, the testing of AI and ML implementations is a developing area, and there is no widely accepted approach.
  • The testing skillset is radically changing – Adoption of agile and DevOps, as well as technologies such as AI, Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain, all require specific technical expertise, and teams must be prepared to acquire these new skills, whether by training their existing team members, or hiring specialists into the team.
