2016 is here. And as a new year starts, it’s time to start focusing on new trends. Software testing isn’t immune to new developments, and companies must keep these in mind as they put in place practices and processes. To assist you with this, here are some software testing trends to keep in mind.
- The Internet of Things (IoT) should be more than simply company jargon: IoT became a hot trend over the last year. While the number of connected devices are rapidly growing, testing has not kept up with demand. Testing procedures will be put in place now to ensure that current products are secure and working as intended, and so teams can keep up with IoT expansion.
- No one-size-fits-all testing: Most testing teams come up with a single overarching testing plan, and they try to get every project to fit into this one master plan. The problem with this approach is that each project is different. Testing plans need to be contextualized based on the product. Organizations will still need to create a master guideline for testing, but project-based testing plans will start to take off as teams look to test products from different angles.
- Security will become more important: Security is already a major reason why testing is so important. Expect the importance of security to continue to grow, especially with businesses now allowing more and more access to sensitive data from websites. Security testing will become a major part of the entire testing process as opposed to being restricted to the end of the process.
