Growing risks require better testing

The IT industry is developing rapidly – and so is the testing sector.
What do we need to prepare ourselves for in the years ahead?

imbus has asked the futurologist and author Dr. Bernd Flessner to cast light on the future of software testing.

The result: the imbus trend study “The Future of Testing” now in 3rd updated edition.

It provides answers to the question where do you see the future of testing and why?

 

 

Take a look into the future of software testing:

  • scenarios for the periods “from 2025”, “from 2035” and “from 2050”
  • orientational knowledge for much-discussed technological developments, including industry 4.0, Outernet and smart home
  • reflections on the impact on the testing sector and the software tester profession

    What is it about?

    The speed of technological development increases rapidly. Whether it is bio-printing, cobots or polytronics: Technologies, which were classified as mere possibilities some years ago, have reached market maturity.

    On more than 70 pages, scenarios for the time periods “from 2025”, “from 2035” and “from 2050” describe possible developments of the testing sector – each examining both a positive and a negative viewpoint. The study provides orientational knowledge on much-discussed technological developments, including industry 4.0, Outernet and smart home. It explains, how they could directly affect the testing sector and the software tester profession.

    The study was published in English and German. Both versions can be downloaded free of cost. Register as a user in the download area and you’ll have also access to many further PDF files, presentation slides and whitepapers, e.g. most of the presentations from Software-QS-Tag and Trends in Testing.
