Improving IT Delivery: The Top Five Trends in Testing

Acutest, a leading software testing service provider, identify the top five trends in software testing that will add the most value to IT delivery projects.

London, United Kingdom, December 03, 2014 --( There is constant pressure to improve quality in IT delivery. This centres on cutting the cost of development and delivery; increasing the speed of implementation and managing the risk of change through effective governance.

Since testing is a major component of IT delivery it can also be improved in its own right, as well as contributing to this overall goal. Acutest, a leading software testing consultancy based in London, has looked across its client base at the top five areas in which improvements are being made in testing. These trends are being seen in blue chip organisations as well as niche specialist; in outsourced testing teams as well as in their in-house counterparts; and in both onshore and offshore work. In summary, these areas are:

· Test automation
· Mobile testing
· Agile testing
· Cloud testing
· Testing tools

Each of these area is subject to major change. For example, the world of software testing tools is changing rapidly. The leading testing tool vendors, such as HP or IBM, still have their enterprise offerings which cover test management; automated performance and load testing; and automated functional and regression testing. But these are being joined by a host of niche tools in all these different areas, which offer low cost and open source alternatives. In the area of test automation, the focus has changed, in part due to new tools but also to new techniques and automation frameworks. It is no longer the sole domain of the technical automation specialist, with subject matter experts now being enabled to contribute substantially to testing on their change programmes.
