Client Centric TCoEs: Organizations today seek to set up Agile TCoEs to be more flexible and collaborative with SDLC. Setting up customized, client-centric TCoEs is one of the key trends to watch out for this year.
Test Automation: It will grow enormously with robust automated testing tools delivering bug-free, high-quality software. Test automation will drive the future of software testing and help avoid routine testing, enabling test engineers to focus on complex test scenarios.
Testing in Agile & DevOps Environments: Organizations gradually embracing Agile and DevOps practices to reduce time to market, will gain the competitive edge.
Wearable and IoT testing: As enormous data is collected and exchanged across multiple channels and platforms, wearable and IoT testing is becoming unavoidable.
Telematics Testing: With the growing demand for smarter automobiles, software testing and validation of automotive infotainment and telematics technologies is becoming crucial.
Quality Engineering: Organizations are seeking comprehensive, collaborative and robust Quality Engineering (QE) Services beyond the traditional QA.
Service Virtualization: Service Virtualization will continue to play a significant role by the increasing adoption of Agile & DevOps practices.
