New testing battlefields

Join this one-hour roundtable discussion with industry experts Daniel Knott, Jim Holmes and Richard Bradshaw to hear what’s shaping up the testing industry these days.

The Internet of Things, smart homes, connected cars, a software-defined way of living and the digital transformation of traditional businesses are not the future. They are already here. Far from being mature, however, they bring along a lot of challenges to testers and developers alike.

Mobile Usage and IoT Adoption Are Soaring

According to a 451 Research report, the number of consumers using mobile apps continued to soar in 2015. Overall, mobile app usage increased 58% last year, with several categories—including productivity and personalization apps—growing at triple-digit rates.

In their “Forecast Analysis: Internet of Things—Services, Worldwide, 2015 Update” Gartner predicted that the largest consumer services opportunity will be in health and fitness, followed by automotive infotainment, home security and safety. At the same time the manufacturing and natural resources industries will be the largest spenders on professional IoT services, representing 41% of the total in 2020. In general, spending by businesses on the IoT project life cycle will be significant.

The newness of Mobile, IoT, embedded systems and the rise of APIs means there are a lot of unknowns, including how to achieve overall product excellence. Customer expectations are increasing and to meet them, development and testing teams must release high-quality apps continuously.
