eBay’s European quality engineering team has broad experience implementing end-to-end test automation in different software development environments (agile, waterfall, co located , outsourced, distributed). This presentation illustrates the key lessons learned from a technical and business perspective:

Write the right tests, a tool is not a strategy; automation is software development itself; speak the same language as the developers; everyone knows what’s automated; instant feedback is essential; flip the testing triangle; invest into the test Infrastructure; maintainability is king and manual testing is still very important.

 

Global software testing services in BFSI sector to grow at 6.91% CAGR

Research and Markets analysts forecast the global software testing services market in BFSI sector to grow at a CAGR of 6.91 percent over the period 2012-2016.

One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the need to reduce operational time and cost. The global software testing services market in BFSI sector has also been witnessing a shift from on-premise software testing to cloud-based software testing. However, lack of data control in outsourced services could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

An analyst from the team said: “The global software testing services market in the BFSI sector is characterized by a lack of skilled and qualified personnel to meet the testing industry standards. Therefore, this trend has affected many businesses and their efforts to deploy quality production.”
