20 Most Promising Software Testing Solution Providers - 2016
The recent decades have witnessed an increasing reliance on software applications for day-to-day tasks, such as monitoring healthcare on the go, to IBM Watson’s DeepQA engine. The significance of these applications functioning with desired outputs at the right time has a direct dependence on the quality of software testing procedures employed during its delivery lifecycle. Moreover, with the advent of Service Oriented Architecture, software testing professionals are now mandated to consider newer aspects such as virtualization and adoption of cloud computing.
The software-testing marketplace finds itself inundated with testing techniques and trends, such as automated testing, agile development environment, crowd-sourced testing, and contextdriven testing. These tools are integrating the testing process at much earlier phases in the software development value-chain, expediting the delivery of software to market. With the growing number of things being added to the Internet of Things every day, software products are required to support and run on these multifarious devices despite diversity.
