NEW DELHI: Technology solutions provider Infogain said that it has unveiled an IDC Technology Spotlight supported by Infogain, “Using Predictive Analytics and Advanced Test Automation to Boost Business Assurance.”
The Technology Spotlight covers the changing dynamics and challenges in Application Delivery, Key Application Portfolio Trends and the need for Smart and Intelligent Automation Testing due to increasing adoption of Agile and DevOps methodologies.
“Application Lifecycle Management is getting complicated with more and more organizations opting for DevOps and open source platforms and there is increasing need to leverage automation in testing. We will see increasing adoption of Machine Learning which will bring predictive intelligence to the test planning process” said Robb La Velle, VP and Global Practice Leader – Business Assurance Services.
IDC predicts automation within application life-cycle management will continue to grow in importance over the next several years as organizations seek to drive higher levels of speed and cost savings in application delivery. To achieve the desired outcomes from testing, organizations should :
Define clear and measurable goals and objectives
Assess the existing state of automation within application testing
Explore, size, and prioritize areas of application testing to automate
Develop a governance and overarching performance monitoring model.
“With the change in business environment, enterprises today are expanding their applications portfolio, accommodating more frequent enhancements with shorter deployment cycles,” said Pete Marston, Research Director for IDC Application Development, Testing, and Management Services (ADTMS).
“To counter the challenges organizations need to adopt progressive methodologies and bring more predictability to testing. Intelligence and Automation in testing will be critical for future enterprises,” added Marston.
