Digital transformation and software testing are two different dimensions of the cyber world that are making the product’s QA and testing more intense and complicated. No wonder, testing processes are costly due to the growing number of IoT, smart devices, digital appliances, media channels, business applications and models. But this cost can be cut down by streamlining the testing process and eliminating any subsidiary elements in the SDLC.
Businesses focus on delivering a faster product that can excel any quality, connectivity and cost related complications.
However, the disrupting wave of digital transformation has caused an alarming situation across all industrial sectors. To meet these challenges, agility has become vital to keep the business world connected through customer networks, supply chains, UI/UX devices, innovative application, and features, etc.
These changes enforce QA businesses to advance their customer experience and its aptitudes and ascertain the performance of each and every feature associated with the application under scrutiny.
Consequently, we need to see how will software testing work in the new digital world under new testing dynamics and techniques.
Effects of Digital Transformation on Software Testing
Digital Transformation is both a good news and a warning for IT institutes as it enforces immense change in both Software Testing and Quality Assurance processes. The oncoming digital world is not only about the inclination towards digital technologies to become faster and better.
It promotes the generation of ideas to direct new technologies like Digital Testing, Quality Assurance, Software Testing, Internet-of-things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence, or predictive analysis. In simple words, software testing companies will be required to think more creatively and out-of-the-box to run the business models and frames.
Significantly, it puts great focus on increasing user experience by improving the functionality and flexibility of the applications.
Software testing teams can take great benefit from social media channels, IoT devices, Big data, and other smart application to influence growth and development in the QA industry – for speed and agility are driving forces behind the mega digital transformation.
Quicker Delivery and User Value – Ultimate Desires
We see businesses going crazy for delivering their products quicker than anyone in the competition line. On the other hand, users and clients don’t have the temperament to stay and wait for a product because they have a plethora of choices available in the market to plunge into.
This is why there’s no way to delay release cycles and for this reason, Agile and DevOps based development processes are considered to be the most productive models in delivering a timely product. While the forward-looking technologies give software testers and QA experts an edge to amplify the delivery processes.
Software Testers need to review their skillset!
But here’s the point of concern. You can’t assure accurate implementation without involving a Pro QA expert. Therefore, testers would need to revamp their testing strategies and learn some innovative testing methods to fully adopt according to the current digital world transformation.
Digital transformation promotes customer experience and, thus, puts great emphasis on software testing as well as security testing to give the end users an error-free and protected the user experience.
