You need to reduce technical debt caused by inadequate testing systems and start delivering high quality applications to drive business priorities. But the challenges in the current environment are many including:
- Older, mature testers are getting ready to leave their organizations for retirement. Those left in the organization do not have the skills to test at the same level of rigor and understanding.
- Application complexity has been rising. Classic monolithic architectures are giving way to highly distributed applications with a much greater test surface area.
- Globalization has led to a preference for off-shore testing. This ‘follows the sun’ practice has expedited the development process and reduced the labor costs, but decreased control over completeness of testing.
- Accelerated development cycles has put pressure on releasing to market sooner than testing is able to complete.
- Mobile has introduced new testing scenarios not considered previously. Testing tools in such newer environments are not as mature.
- Big Data testing can be time consuming thereby taking a long time to develop applications that are becoming more critical in helping the business formulate competitive decisions.
Please join me on Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 1pm EST for a Webinar on “Software Testing In Today’s Cloudy/Mobile World”
In this webinar we will discuss the challenges you are facing and share key insights. Application Development Leaders have inherited a legacy portfolio of applications and are struggling to maintain the quality. The number of applications continues to grow over time and this has impacted:
- Applications are not working as intended
- Application complexity and feature creep is increasing
- Testing costs are increasing due to existing applications taking more time to test
- Testers not having the resources and time to prioritize and test everything
- Inability to meet business SLA around application quality and performance
- There is less time for innovation or new development
The business impact is as follows:
- Rework costs are increasing
- Technical debt is increasing
- Less time for innovation or new development
We will hear from guest panelists who have experience in this space. Attendees will weigh-in on several key polls and will be able to pose questions to the group.
Info-Tech Research Group webinars occur during the early weeks of our research projects. We want to work closely with our members and potential members as we build out our research to ensure we are thoroughly meeting your needs.
