The world we live in is changing by the minute. Driven by advanced technology built into software applications, it is making people’s daily lifestyle easier, whether it is via their phone, laptop, vehicle or any other device. This is one of the reasons customers expect new products, applications or features all the time. Anything that can make them go ‘wow’ qualifies as exceeding their expectations. This ultimately puts a lot of pressure on software testing teams to ensure no app crashes, downtimes and poor loading times, among other factors.
From a time when software testing began at the end of the production cycle i.e the waterfall model which didn’t involve taking customer feedback to the current agile or shift left testing methodologies, the realm of software testing is undergoing massive changes. Newer methodologies like DevSecOps, Docker, Kubernetes, Microservices are making their way into the software development lifecycle.
However, with the niche that testing is, not every enterprise has the resources and talent to keep with emerging testing tools and customer expectations. They are often struggling to keep quality consistent while being cost-effective and agile. This is why they turn to Managed Testing Service providers.
The dilemma caused by rapid software testing technology and methodology evolution is driving customers to rethink their investments and infrastructure. Collaborating with managed testing services partner and the ecosystem is key to rapid product rollouts.
