Capitalize on new trends in testing

Quality Assurance (QA) organizations must address business risks and enhance agility while minimizing costs. In an article published in DevX.com, an Infosys expert identifies the emerging trends in testing and QA validation services:

Early life cycle validation: Risk-based security testing, predictive performance modeling and other methodologies to identify and rectify defects early in the life cycle, thereby lowering total cost of quality.

Testing metrics and automation: Test life cycle management, automation technologies, and new dashboards for testing metrics enhance traceability, efficiencies and the return on investment (ROI).

Domain-based testing: Point / platform-based solutions that combine core business processes with advanced testing frameworks ensure superior testing.

Non-functional testing: Non-functional validation services and solutions to test usability, accessibility and performance that enhance the customer experience are gaining importance.

New frameworks: New models are required to address challenges in testing in the area of emerging technologies such as service-oriented architecture (SOA) and cloud computing.

ERP Testing: Specialized testing skills and methodologies are imperative for a smooth rollout and upgrade of ERP packages.
