Key Note – Digital Transformation & QA

The World Quality Report is the most definitive blend of primary research and expert opinion on the state of quality assurance and software testing. The 2018-19 report is the 10th edition, jointly produced by Capgemini, Sogeti and Micro Focus.

We interviewed a mix of 1700 QA, testing, business, and IT (operations, applications) leaders across 32 countries and 8 sectors and focused on these 6 themes:

  • Artificial Intelligence – A force multiplier for QA and testing
  • Test Automation – The single biggest enabler of maturity in QA and testing
  • The Quality Assurance Organization – Greater adoption, newer challenges, and a move away from Test Centers of Excellence
  • TDM & TEM  The biggest obstacles to progress in QA and testing/one of the most important bottlenecks to progress
  • Efficiency and cost containment in quality assurance
