Enterprise software has never before been so exciting, or such a challenge for testers. The continual rise of new technologies being applied to the enterprise – cloud, touch, mobile, big data, and social, and the relentless rate at which these technologies must be deployed to remain competitive, makes enterprise software testing a demanding skill.
The Finance industry is built around highly sophisticated IT systems. These include customer facing services delivered via the Internet using browsers and secure mobile apps, internal trading platforms, exchanges, and essential back office systems. More than any other industry, the Finance sector has to balance the tension between aggressive innovation, conformance with regulations, and very high levels of reliability and stability.
The rapid development of in-car digital technology is creating formidable testing and QA challenges. In Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) is one high growth area, but other systems for safety and traffic management are also emerging, often with government regulation. Automotive software testing, and IVI testing, are becoming some of the most important aspects of automobile product development.
Media and entertainment is an industry continually being transformed by new technology. This relentless adoption of new technologies creates formidable testing challenges that eggPlant can help.
Defence demands a level of product quality, reliability, and robustness that’s unimaginable in other industries. This is why testing costs in defence and aerospace can easily be 75% of the total product development cost, compared to 20-30% for consumer and enterprise software. The high-performance and reliability demands of the defence industry also mean that specialised bespoke technologies are common.
The healthcare and life sciences industry is increasingly looking to technology to increase capability and reduce costs. This includes clinical support systems, digital imaging (PACS), electronic health record and electronic medical record (EHR/EMR) management, and hospital and practice administration. Effective testing with productive test automation tools is therefore essential for healthcare software testing.
e-Commerce and online media companies engage with their customers via their online presence; so the quality of their technology is vital to their existence. At the same time, there is a constant demand to refresh and enhance their online presence to keep customers engaged. Highly efficient and effective website testing is therefore absolutely essential.
