Take a strategic approach to quality with Agile test management
Why Agile testing is critical for business success in the Digital Age (and how to empower testers with the right tools)
As more businesses realize new revenue streams and customer engagement strategies through software, testing is taking on an increasingly important role in business success. Despite this, testing often takes place in silos related to a single function’s requirements. In today’s highly competitive environment, if you’re not taking a strategic approach to quality, you’re overlooking a competitive advantage.
The widespread modernization of testing among today’s leading enterprises signals a maturation in the mindset of IT and the C-Suite, as businesses realize QA’s vital role in a company’s success. As the role and responsibilities of testing grow, testers must move to a more sophisticated approach that prioritizes strategic test automation and in-depth data analysis that can lead to more efficient testing higher-quality releases.
Companies that employ multiple, disparate testing methods and store the resulting information in disparate tools lack the ability to gain the kind of comprehensive, organization-wide insights that can better the business. When test data is collected across a vast toolset, testers’ ability to gain understanding of overall quality, or to leverage the insights they gain to improve efficiency enterprise-wide, becomes severely limited. In a software-driven economy, these failings put companies at a competitive disadvantage.
