By and large, looking at the present tech environment as it is, when it comes to the subject of software testing, this goes way beyond the need to prevent bugs and is today seen to be more of a strategic function. In the modern development shop, quality should be the top concern and this is considering the fact that inferior or poor quality can prove to have such a disastrous impact on the whole development cycle of the various software and apps that may be produced by a shop. By and large, one of the concerns that should be top in the list of any software development team out there is the need to ship code out as fast as can be.
Having said all this, the question that should be asked is what it is that actually does set a software testing and app development team ahead of the pack when it comes to their products. Below we get to see some of the key elements that you will want to take into consideration as you seek to have the best of the software and app development and testing organizations.
Testing automation or automated testing is one of the key attributes and features that you should have in your organization so as to have it set apart as one of a kind in the present league of players in this field. Actually, the feature of automated testing is one of the features that does enable a number of the greatest of the software testing and app development organizations out there. By and large, automated software testing helps reduce the costs of app testing and software development, something that has been on the rise at such a high pace even with the accelerated pace of the agile and the DevOps release cycles. The cost element is seen in the fact that as you get to automate more and more of your tests, you will have less and less need for manual testing and as such you get to invest less in these. This as well goes a long way in improving the reliance you can have on testing to get you rapid feedback as you go about your app and software development process. Luckily today, with the standardization that we have so far witnessed in the open source frameworks, we have seen it becoming more and more easier and as well cost effective to automate the app and software development tests across a number of the operating systems, browsers and devices as well. And as a matter of fact, as a developer you know of the fact that this is such a huge advantage in your app and software development and testing process, that is the ability to write your own tests all but once and having all the platforms for the same automatically supported.
