Technology has been evolving continuously and has made significant inroads in the Software Industry with newly upgraded tools and trends. It has also significantly impacted many industries through development, testing, design, and delivery. This new interference has a positive response, and companies have already started focusing on digital transformation as their top priority.
Software Testing Trends in 2022
Software Testing could face a significant challenge in this digital scenario, so software testers must stay updated with these trends. Here are the latest trends in software testing for testers to watch out for in 2022:
The rise in technology has created an enormous demand for IoT, and even considerable research suggests that IoT could be the next best thing. Furthermore, the internet poses a significant threat in terms of misuse. Therefore, security has become the most prominent factor, and IoT could be the best bet in these scenarios. Some industries that have roots in IoT are agriculture, finance, manufacturing, healthcare, retail, etc.
Some trending automation testing tools in IoT are POSTMAN, Wireshark, Tcpdump, Shodan, and JTAG Dongle.
With fast-paced IT growth, there’s an imminent need for companies to extract maximum output in quick successions. This opens doors for codeless automation among Software Testers. The codeless AI technology is responsible for faster project completion, enabling testers to focus on other productive tasks.
Blockchain has become the latest hit since it reaps benefits in the form of heaps of money in no time, and hence organizations shift their focus towards them with the perks they bring along. Furthermore, blockchain increases security, trust, transparency and data traceability shared across a network, which is well-sorted using the blockchain testing strategy.
As the COVID-19 pandemic showed the crucial need for change in the working pattern and forced many companies to shut down operations, chatbots were considered the lifeline for many sectors in assisting people virtually. The cornerstone of the success of chatbots came from helping customers with round-the-clock support from wherever they are and resolving their queries.
Artificial Intelligence(AI) and Machine Learning (ML):
Recently, test automation has been done with the help of AI and ML, as they find them beneficial in the long run by saving cost and time. AI is used in many facets of testing, such as:
- Counting functional testing
- Automation testing
- Performance testing
- Regression testing
As AI and ML aid in predictive analysis, it becomes easier for you to determine critical faults and design the whole procedure with great vision and less human supervision.
Summing it up:
The future of software testing is here and it’s high time to leverage its benefits to stay on par with the competition. With several technological innovations lined up in the upcoming years, it’s no doubt that digital transformation will rule the world, and time for us to blend with the trend.
