Testing Research Update

The summer and fall are over and while some pieces have taken longer than desire we have now delivered several new pieces of testing market research. The latest piece is our new Magic Quadrant for Software Test Automation. So where do we go from here?  Well a few places:

1) critical capabilities for software test automation – a companion to the MQ under development now

2) updates we are starting updates to published docs in particular the mobile testing tools market guide. 

3) practices and guidance – we are working on more materials for how to get started and succeed with automation, how testing pegs are evolving as well as metrics. I presented some of these at the recent AADI conference in Las Vegas in talking about BiModal Test Orgs. 

In short like testing the work is never really done but we are happy to see successful new deployments.
