The World Quality Report 2016-17 8th Edition

The World Quality Report 2016-17, sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Capgemini and Sogeti, examines the state of application quality and testing practices across multiple industries and 32 countries. The report reveals that despite 85% of respondents claiming that internet of things (IoT) products are a part of their business operations, over two thirds (68%) of organizations in which IoT plays a role, do not currently have a test strategy for this specific aspect of IT.

Technology continues to play an increasingly important role in QA and Testing. As a result, businesses around the world and across a range of industry sectors are experiencing the benefits of embracing the digital transformation.

In order to become more competitive, achieve targeted business goals and deliver an enhanced customer experience, companies are adopting a more agile and DevOps approach into their QA and Testing practices.
