Test Automation – 10 (sometimes painful) Lessons Learned by
Dominik Dary & Michael Palotas, eBay International: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJ0O8p5PajQ
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.”
Boeing passes tests on way to launch craft
Aerospace giant Boeing Company, which has a large presence in Colorado Springs, CO, is one step closer to launching its Crew Space Transportation program after having successfully completed hardware design and software safety tests.
The company said Thursday in a news release that its Commercial Crew Program completed a Critical Design Review for its Launch Vehicle Adapter — a device that connects the CST-100 spacecraft to the Atlas V rocket on which it will ride — as well as the rocket’s emergency detection system has also successfully passed evaluation.
The two tests/reviews are part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Integrated Capability agreement with the aerospace company.
Boeing’s CST-100 systems will be put through another round of software testing and design reviews with an Integrated Critical Design Review coming this summer and is “on track to meet all 20 of its CCiCap milestones in 2014, according to the release.
