Chinese New Year is around the corner and Tricentis is here to predict all of the testing possibilities this year has to offer.

The year of the Goat is an auspicious year that symbolizes Peace and Harmony. According to the Chinese calendar, the year of the goat will lead to a shift towards automated testing, not only on-premise but also in the cloud.  Some software failures will occur, resulting in financial, branding or bodily damages. However, many will be avoided because of the growing importance of software testing and quality assurance.
