Trends in Testing 2016
Today's online environments have created a dramatic new set of challenges for software professionals responsible for the quality of web applications. Time to market needs create increasing pressure on release cycles. Methodologies aiming to reduce development times have been broadly adopted, but are release cycles where they need to be? How is application quality impacted? What has been the impact of constantly evolving technology like new browsers and cloud computing?
The following report, sponsored by Sauce Labs, is based on a survey of 520 software professionals responsible for the quality of web applications. The goal of this global survey was to understand current trends in testing online environments. Certain questions were repeated from a similar survey conducted to the same audience one year ago to allow for trend analysis.
