Rapidly Evolving IT Landscape Necessitates Innovation in the QA Discipline, Especially for Mobile
By Product Management | January 15, 2013
2013 is projected to see a continued exponential growth in mobile resulting in an immediate need to support efforts within enterprise organizations around the world to maintain and secure their infrastructure and protect vital resources.
As a result “quality assurance is undergoing a quiet but steady evolution from in-house testing generalists to a structured and efficient discipline, with a greater influence within the overall application development lifecycle” as reported in the 2012 -13 World Quality Report (WQR). They continue by saying they “observed from their survey the emergence of a multifaceted discipline with an increasing range of operating models at its disposal, that enables a streamlined and cost-effective output that is also aligned with business needs.
The level of QA and testing investment has proved to be resilient in adverse economic environments in most markets, and has stretched to accommodate an ever-increasing workload. But now, testing resources need to prove themselves more effectively and QA teams need to stay alert to the new disruptive technologies and ensure their skill levels are attuned to both market and internal expectations.”
