Growth in IoT (internet of things)

The growth of IoT growing borderline more customers bank on IoT Testing before going to use the products. If the product is not tested for its functionality, security, and performance– it will come below scanner. According to a survey, more than 70% of devices in IoT are accessible to security obstacle.

Changing gear from performance testing to engineering

“A better user experience is needed for the progress of the product”.
A Performance will be consistency across platforms, operating system, and devices depending on how much market value it has, and which totally depends on the user of the product.

Rise in software testing budget

Clearly the huge focus and need for high-quality product excellence in Information and technology world, testing has become essential than just a need.Raising the demand for Quality product results in increasing IT budget 40-50% for software testing and QA.
As new technologies are coming in software testing world older are override with newer. So be updated with future trends in testing.
