Companies worldwide have deployed enterprise application software products—like ERP, CRM, and SCM—to improve efficiency and empower their employees to do their jobs better. In fact, by 2020, the ERP software market is projected to be worth US$49.5 billion.
With digital business now a full-blown reality, enterprise IT companies in all sectors are disrupting their business models and undergoing digital transformations to stay relevant. They’re turning to agile development approaches and DevOps to spark innovation and rapidly deliver new, cutting-edge products and solutions that meet evolving customer desires.
The companies seeing success are the ones designing solutions and testing with the user in mind. They’re also evolving their testing strategies away from time-consuming, manual testing and embracing test automation for a number of reasons. To boost productivity and predictability, control costs, and effectively scale testing. To prepare for the evolution of the internet of things (IoT), and incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning for continuous improvement. And to create engaging, user-friendly enterprise apps that fuel high user adoption rates and increasing revenue.
As new technologies (cloud, touch, mobile, big data, and social) pop up in the enterprise space at a relentless pace, it’s more important than ever to get enterprise app software testing right. You need to test every type of technology, including within systems, as well as the full user experience and journey across all devices, platforms, and operating systems. You need to test quickly and easily during your agile sprints. And you’ve got to make it all happen with the same budget and resources.
Piece of cake, right?
