Software development practices and technologies, along with automation testing tools, have changed drastically over the years. This evolution has brought improvements in productivity, software quality, and customer satisfaction while fostering the development of innovative products and services. Organizations are leveraging intelligent automation and smart analytics to drive faster decision-making and validation. Increasing use of test automation and widespread adoption of agile and DevOps methodologies are helping meet the challenges of testing highly integrated and continuously evolving smart devices and products. Furthermore, self-aware and self adaptive smart testing platforms help support the complete application lifecycle.
Automation testing tools currently centered on open source and continuous testing will soon leverage artificial intelligence, internet of things, and blockchain in an effort to innovate the testing capabilities. Applications and testing methods will require modifications to accommodate these new technologies. A critical requirement for test automation tools and best practices is to enable teams to conduct testing as rapidly as possible while maintaining the highest level of quality and ensuring shorter development cycles. According to a recent report by Transparency Market Research, the global test automation market will expand at a CAGR of 15.4 percent from 2017 to 2025, increasing its value to $109.69 billion by 2025. The most prominent factor driving this growth is the digital transformation that has led to the swift uptake of software testing and quality assurance across enterprises.
