Testing is critical for organizations like NASA, the US Army, Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, MBDA, the UK’s Ministry of Defense and the Metropolitan and Scottish Police, where lives are on the line. As we've worked with customers like these over many years, we've noticed how much more testing is than just making sure the system works — it’s about ensuring we test for mission success and continuously optimize mission outcomes. Whether you're designing systems for command and control (C2); to provide support for complex police operations, such as hostage negotiations; or for shooting down an enemy missile, you should plan your testing and monitoring strategy to continuously test against the desired mission outcomes.
This blog is only partially about our newest iOS Gateway 5.0 release with device and simulator support for Touch ID and Face ID (which is super cool, but more about that later). It’s also a blog about how testing has changed — a lot — in a short amount of time.
Wow! It’s been quite a year in QA at Testplant. We’ve implemented so many new, big features, providing even more ways to expand our quiver of testing solutions—and yours.
Consumerization, digital experience, DevOps, mobile, fragmentation, and microservices have changed how software products are architected, how they’re produced, what they do, who uses them, and those users’ expectations. As a result, there’s been a massive shift in testing requirements, both in terms of what we’re trying to achieve and what we need to do.
