Trends in Testing 2017
Throughout the history of software development, change has been constant. New technologies, methodologies, and tools constantly evolve to help development teams build better software. However, one thing that has not changed is the pressure on these teams to release high quality software under very tight timelines. Testing remains key to achieving this goal.
This research investigates trends in testing with modern development teams. What are teams doing to adopt new development approaches including agile, Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery and DevOps? What is the role of cloud? What is going well and where is there room to improve?
This report, sponsored by Sauce Labs, is based on a survey of 732 technology professionals responsible for the development and quality of web and mobile applications. The goal of this global survey was to understand current trends in software testing. To allow for trend analysis, certain questions were repeated from prior surveys conducted with the same audience each year at this time for the past two years.
