Testing and Application Quality

The challenges of building and deploying high quality applications continue to grow. The complexity of the platforms, the proliferation of libraries and frameworks, and the distributed nature of applications all contribute to bugs and performance issues. Security holes are also bugs that must be tested for and fixed as they are uncovered.

Testers continue to face these challenges with better methodologies and improved technologies. With more to testing than ensuring bugs are detected and addressed, QA professionals must also make sure that application requirements are met.

Developers play a big role as well, because the earlier flaws are discovered, the easier they are to fix. And fixing bugs is a difficult but necessary task once an application is in production. New technologies offer help to developers in understanding and addressing flaws more quickly during production, so that applications can be put back to work as soon as possible.

The goal is to ensure that end users can reliably use applications to accomplish their business activities. Constant testing is necessary, but no longer sufficient to ensure this level of quality. Discover new approaches and technologies to make quality within reach today.
